Saturday Link List: the Valentine's Day edition

Welcome to my first holiday edition link list for 2012!  I got started on Valentine's Day crafts early this year and also got started on my link list early.  I've been building my Valentine's Day Pintrest board since late December.  You can click on the link to see the full set of items.  It's mostly craft ideas: cards, decorations, and more with a few other things thrown into the mix.

I did write one Valentine's Day article on HubPages.  I may still write at least one more, but this is what I have for now.
As always, if you missed an article of mine when I originally posted it on my blog, click here!

Here are just a few other links that I love from my board.

I like cutting hearts by hand, but I need to get a heart punch at some point so I can make projects like this.  This is on my "to do" list for sewing paper.

Tracy has written a bunch of articles about ice art projects.  Isn't this beautiful?

There are so many fun projects out there for paint samples.  My father-in-law owns a True Value, so I'm going to have some up the next time that we're there.

Where do you buy paper dollies (that aren't terribly expensive)?  I really want to make some of these for Valentine's Day next year.

Jamie loves to create scrapbook printables for all sorts of different holidays.  Check out my Pintrest board for a couple other great scrapbook printables as well.

For those of us who like the concept of conversation hearts but don't really enjoy eating them, this is a great alternative from Jenny.

I featured one of Ashley's items yesterday and then found her blog through her Twitter account later in the day.  She has an awesome blog!  Check out this great Valentine's Day pencil tutorial.

Again, you can check out the board for the complete set.  Have fun with all of your Valentine's Day projects this year!
