Old-Fashioned Valentines

I had such fun making these old timey valentines for my family this year! I used my scrapbooking supplies, old Mary Englebreit (love her work!) desk calendar pages, and some heart doilies. Each one is different and made for a special person in my family. They remind me of the valentines my third grade teacher (in the 60's) had us make for our parents. It was the first time I had ever seen a heart shaped doily! I made some for all my small godchildren and their moms, too, but I forgot to photograph them.

This one is for my Tim. (All are clickable if you want to enlarge them to see any details.)

This one is for my beautiful daughter.

This one is for my handsome 15 year old son.

This one is for my mother.
Perhaps next year you would like to make some old timey valentines! Just give yourself enough time. I didn't and I was working until late Saturday night finishing up!


  1. Karen those valentines are beautiful! I remember making them in the early 60's too. :)

  2. You've inspired me to make Valentines for family next year too! Where did you find the cute little vintage valentines?

  3. I bet your family was thrilled when they opened these lovely cards, Karen! You are truly multi-talented, Hon. Imagine what you'll be able to do when you quit working!!!!!! LOL

    Thanks for your sweet comments on Ms. C. & the Coco dress.


  4. These are just adorable - I hope to take the time to make some for my family next year- these are keepers! I was so bummed when they canceled Mary's mag, Home Companion - I've kept every back issue!
