I’m a Sucker for Pinterest

As you know, Pinterest is my guilty pleasure. It truly is like getting a new magazine in the mail every day.  Not that kind of magazine, silly!  Sheesh.  Get your mind out of the gutter!

For me, it’s like Shape, Runner’s World, Better Homes and Gardens, Food Network Magazine and Family Fun all rolled into one happy space.  But I didn’t realize how literal that was until I stumbled upon this awesome Valentine’s Day idea. 

How adorable and creative are these Valentine’s Day cards?  It sure beats the perforated, punch out Sponge Bob stupid pun cards my kids would beg me to buy.

And it’s no wonder because the blogger behind this idea, Design Mom, was featured in the February issue of Family Fun magazine.

So when you’re flipping through Family Fun and you wonder, “Who are all these amazing moms?” All those amazing, creative moms, dads, grandparents and teachers do indeed exist and can be found on Pinterest.  So go follow them (and me too)!

And then you can try to replicate their ingeniousness like I did.

I started with a photo shoot…

…and a tiny bit of tweaking and editing in Picnik (which I will not be happy to lose on April 19) to add the text “Valentine, I’m a sucker for you.”

Then, a few small cuts for a heart-shaped lollipop and voila!

Our classmates’ cards are complete.

Thank you Family Fun Magazine Design Mom Pinterest!

    I LOVE these! What a super cute idea!

    You should totally try Photoshop Elements 10’s free 30-day trial. It’s on Adobe.com. I use PSE 8 and have tried the Lightroom 3 free trial and love that too but it seems a lot more difficult to figure out.

    These are so cute! I agree, losing Picnik will be terrible, I’m still looking for an alternative, but none of them as a fabulous as Picnik!
