Valentine's Subway Art...... fonts are so fun!

I LOVE playing with different fonts and making Subway Art for special occasions. So...........after I finished up with my teeny tiny envelopes for Valentine's Day (see my previous post), I thought I should get my Valentine's Day Subway Art downloaded into my Etsy shop.... so here it is!  
The watermark won't show up when you download this from my Etsy shop.
Isn't it fun? I made this last year and never got it put into my Etsy shop!  Better late than never I guess. It's a digital "instant download". I also made a sheet of NINE tags you can print out, cut, and use. Check my blog post HERE where I talk about how to download fonts onto your computer.

The watermarks won't show up when you download this from my Etsy shop.
These are really high resolution images, so you could print out the large one on 8-1/2 x 11 glossy photo paper, and frame it for a pretty Valentine's Day decoration. Or print on 4x6 or 5x7 glossy photo paper to place it on a card.  Find my Valentine's Day Subway Art here in my Etsy shop.

Wouldn't the tags be darling cut apart and placed in a little mini album you've made, tucked inside the pockets? Or use them on canvas art or for scrapbook pages. I would use red cardstock for my mini album so that the tags would stand out.

Just thought you might like to see this.  I have other Subway Art in my Etsy shop too.

More teeny tiny envelopes for Valentine's Day.

As I told you, I'm really addicted to making little envelopes with my We are Memory Keepers (WRMK) Envelope Punch Board! Well... the other night while watching TV, I made about 50 little teeny tiny envelopes using some of my pretty Valentine's themed scrapbook paper.

I really got carried away!

I had no idea what I was making them for, other than it was just plain fun.........

I used 3" squares of paper......... I love the little "kraft" and red envelopes, and the ones that have subway art on them..... and the ones with little pink and red hearts....

I made my first score and punch with the paper lined up at 1-3/8"... and then scored all the way around and punched each time. These are so easy to make! The punch board doesn't have directions for this small of an envelope, but use the measurements above, and you'll get these teeny tiny envelopes measuring just 1-3/4" x 1-3/8".  Some were even smaller, but now I don't remember what size squares I used for those! I decided they were almost TOO small.

I thought hum.m.m.m.m.m...........I DO have an Etsy shop...... why don't I put some in my Etsy shop. So I began to package them up into sets of 8. Then I thought.... hum.m.m.m.m..... these need something with them, since the package looks kind of bare, so I got out my Martha Stewart pad of Valentine's Day papers, and found some cute little "stamps" with some foil on them, and thought "these would look so neat tucked into the envelopes", or put on a card, so I cut out a bunch of stamps, and added 8 to each package........

 and then I thought....... these needs some little tags to hide inside, so someone could write a little "love" sentiment on them...... so I cut some little 1-1/4" cream colored tags with my Cricuit, and added 8 to the package.....

So now my little 24 pc. pack of envelopes, stamps and tags was ready to go! .......... and I made 4 packages to put in my Etsy shop.  Here's the complete set:

You can find them here in my Etsy shop.  There are four different sets with different papers and sets of stamps.  I have enough made for about 2 or 3 more sets, but don't have them packaged up yet.

And I thought..... while I"m at it, I'd better make a card to show you what you can do with these cute teeny tiny envelopes.......

I can see using these little envelopes also for tucking into your loved one's lunchbox (does anyone really "make" their lunches anymore? or do wives make lunches for their husbands????)......... or tucked inside a pocket of someone's shirt, or on top of their pillow....... with a little love-ly message slipped inside...........

Get that envelope punch board out and make some teeny tiny envelopes!
