Valentine's Day Catch Up!

As you all my recall, a few weeks ago I posted a teaser about my Valentine's Day Project. I promised I would reveal what I was doing on Valentine's Day. Well, seeing that I was traveling on the 14th, I didn't have a chance to share with you my completed project. ...That is, until NOW! :)

Here are the treats I made and shared with my Valentines (all 80 of them!)

(As you can see, I did some vertically and some horizontally)
I took my inspiration from the ladies at Brown Paper Packages (love them!) 
and went to town in my local Paper Source!

For the cards themselves, I used PS's precut postcards and business-sized cards (in pool and fuchsia), a watermark stamp pad (VersaMark is the best I think), 2 PS stamps,
a white pen, as well as an embossing gun and powder
(the Happy Valentine's Day is embossed with opaque white.)

To finish them off I modge-podged some basic clothes pins from Target
with matching patterned paper from PS
and filled mini treat bags from Michael's with Valentine's Day M&M's.

There you have it! A little time consuming, but DEFINITELY easy and worth it!

After embossing the fuchsia cards I signed each one with part 
of a verse from the "love" chapter in 1 Corinthians:

"And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. 
And the greatest of these is love."
1 Cor. 13:13

Seeing as my name is Agape (which is love in Greek) this is one of my favorite passages! And as you can see, there's a whole lotta love going on in that Valentine! ;)
