DIY Last Minute Valentine Cards➳


△We all know what it's like to get super busy and then realize a holiday it just around the corner. I am usually really good at keeping up with holidays and being prepared because I know family and friends enjoy getting updates from our little family. This year...not so much. I realized yesterday how soon Valentine's Day is and I didn't do my cards! I set up a quick photo shoot space, started cutting out hearts and made a few graphics to print out, promised the family I would cook their favorite dinner, got the treats out for the dog, set up the tripod for the camera, and click click click....

△The Cards

These are the few cards that we made ..
Now to the HOW and WHERE to make your cards???

For these I used the awesome online designer PIC MONKEY .  They have a free and a pay for version. The free version has tons and tons of stuff you can do to make cards. 


1.) Sign up for an account
2) Hit make a collage 
3)upload a background or picture to start with or you can use photos that Picmonkey already has for you.
4)click onto layouts 
5)click cards
6) choose the size of the card that you want to make
7)Pick a collage
8)click onto images .. (the icon above the layouts icon) and start adding your pics from your computer or Facebook
9)Once you have your collage click edit to add text//designs//and all sorts of fun things!
10) Always save your work!! 
11) Print out your cards yourself or take them to a local print store

XOXO!  I would love to see your last minute cards!!!!  Send them to my email  or upload them on instagram and hashtag #LMVcard
