Happy almost Valentine’s Day lovers!!! Seriously, how did THAT happen? This is always one of those hallmark holidays that sneaks up on me. It’s like I sail through Thanksgiving thinking I’m on top of my game and get clobbered by Christmas. When I was a kid V-Day was a favorite of mine. I loved exchanging those tiny cards with Bugs Bunny or Strawberry Shortcake. The boys would give Transformers and Star Wars cards. Each envelope would be attached with a heart shaped sucker, stuffed with “talking” hearts or SweetTarts. You’d eat pink frosted cupcakes and paste a doily and big red heart on a brown paper bag to collected your loot. Well, this year’s different. I’m celebrating and gifting you two Valentine’s Day free printables! How ya like them apples?

When Grace from The Big Reveal ask me to design holiday gift tags for her “Creative Ways to Package Holiday Cookies” post, I kinda jumped for joy (and declared myself insane). That’s totally normal, right? I know, I know, it sounds weird especially since we spent the entire week cranking out the Wildwood Speakeasy New Year’s Eve party last week. Grace had leverage though. She bribed me by showcasing them on Twin Cities Live today. And I can now say I was on TV…well, kinda. Ok, ok, my holiday gift tags were on TV with Laura’s nuts…technically NOT me, but hey, I’ll take it! At least I can say I know a TV star! Besides, I had started designing these a while back but became too busy to finish, but still itching to complete. This was just the
nudge shove I needed to put on the final touches (and finally decide on a color scheme). I mean, they’ve only been sitting on my desktop since October. (I might be a bit of a procrastinator.)

FREE PRINTABLE INCLUDED BELOW IN THIS POST! DON’T MISS IT!
I have to admit, 100% of the time, if you were to place two identical items in front of me, one having spectacular packaging and the other with horrible type and all the crazy colors of a fruit bowl, I’d pick the pretty packaging hands down. Even if it was more money, I’d buy the pretty packaging. Materialistic, maybe? Vain, maybe? I’d like to
think hope chalk it up to good taste. But one this is for sure, it’s the graphic designer in me. I crush on good typography. I live for it. I’m constantly judging magazines and billboards for their kerning. I just can’t help it.
So we did another set of printables for you guys. If you missed last month’s, click here. They are in the 5 X 7 format (I’m still working on different sizing options), but I think I you guys SHOULD be able to shrink AND enlarge if you print them with someone like Shutterfly since I gave you a pretty high resolution. So my darlings, are you excited to see what we have for you this month? Excellent!
Here’s the first one, and there’s THREE MORE after the jump!
