Valentine’s Day Decorating with Shutterfly

Share To:


Hello friends! How was your week? I hope it was fabulous. It’s been insanely crazy here, like I can’t breathe. However, I have deadlines to meet and people to please so we are just taking things day by day. I am so excited to announce that I am continuing my partnership with Shutterfly to bring you more ideas for creating amazing items using their home decor collection! For this month’s projects, I decided to create a few items to spruce up my house for Valentine’s Day! I started with the black and white heart pillow above (sweet + simple!) and it turned out beautiful!

Then I created a simple black and white “love” graphic and had it printed on a 16″ x 20″ canvas. I love how the canvas and pillow turned out and I’m thinking they need permanent spots in my office, not just for Valentine’s Day!

Our designs for Shutterfly plates have been so popular that I decided to create a heart design with the kids’ names on them. I’m thinking a special Valentine’s breakfast is in order and once the kids finish their pancakes, they will see their names on the plates! Cute!
