So, it’s uh, no secret I love pictures. I love slightly changing the frames around my house each season or holiday to reflect the theme. It’s such a fun, simple way to “decorate” for a holiday without getting all crazy cheesy at the dollar store, ya know? I’ll take you on a quick little glimpse through my Valentine’s Day goodies I set out, and show you how to easily use the photos from the Valentine’s Day mini sessions you did with me. :)
This poor little XO has made it through its third year in the Valentine’s Day props rotation, but it still finds its way to resting on my living room mirror each year. The little banner I made hanging above using old book pages and this tutorial. The X & O are the wood letter’s from Michael’s and I modge podged scrapbook paper onto them.
I printed out 4x6s from the mini session I did of my kids and used the tiny little clothespins from Hobby Lobby (I think they’re in the scrapbooking section maybe?) to hang the pictures from a heart garland (another minis prop) I got a couple of years ago from Paper Source.
I have a grouping of random frames from Pottery Barn, Ikea, Target, Aaron Brothers…everywhere. I just collect them as I see them and move them all around the house. Anyway, these are the current frames sitting upon our sideboard. I change these pictures out throughout the seasons & holidays, and use old ones and new ones.
Look how little Jake looks here! It’s from Valentine’s Day 2012. I set out the mini accordion book from last year’s Valentines Kissing Booth session (so stinkin cute, guys!! A lot of you have seen the little accordion books at your session premieres and have fallen in love with them. Definitely a client and personal fave product).
Along with my selection of seasonal pictures, I usually set out a themed print. This year, I decided to go with the black and gold trend and create one that flows with this year’s Valentine minis. As my gift to you, sweet friends, download the printable and enjoy it in your own home! I created it for myself as a 5×5 file, but I also made it available as a 5×7 file.
