Free Valentine’s Day Printables

Valentine’s Day is only a few days away!  It’s not a holiday that I’ve always been a huge fan of, but ever since I had my son it has started to grow on my a little more.

As I have mentioned previously, my son is a huge fan of all things cars.  However, there are several little guys in his class who also love cars, and unfortunately there are only a few pre-made car valentines out there this year.  I AM aware that the kids wouldn’t mind receiving the same valentines that they gave out to their friends, but decided to go ahead and make a printable valentine to use instead!  Here’s a look at the finished product.

I also made another version using bees.

I’m pretty happy with how they turned out!  Links to download all of the files shown in the photos above can be found here.  All you need to do is print, cut, and assemble!  No special printer needed (These were printed using an old all in one printer that is about 9 or 10 years old).  Just note that colors will vary depending on your printer.

For reference, these were printed onto Canon Matte Photo Paper which I found at my local office supply store.  Regular paper works fine, but the finish on this paper is a little bit smoother and the color tend to come out a little brighter.

Hope you like them!

Special thanks to Goodness and Fun for the car clip art!

Car Birthday Party

Just now finally starting to catch up on blog posts.  yikes!  It has been a whirlwind few months, but thankfully things are finally starting to wrap up.  I’m ready to get focused back on what I love!

My little man turned two last October, and to say that my son loves cars might actually be an understatement.  This kid is REALLY into his cars.  He has been for well over a year now, which made picking the theme for his second birthday pretty easy (and could potentially be the theme of his third birthday as well).

The inspiration for the invitations and party decor came from the birthday outfit that he wore.  He loved these invites so much that he carried TWO of them around with him for at least a week after they came in the mail.

His Daddy and Paw Paw built this awesome track to race matchbox cars.  We loved the idea that we found here, but decided to go with a simpler (and less expensive) option.  It was a HUGE hit.   Continue reading
