Valentine's Day Countdown Calendar

I decided to make a new version of my Valentine's Day Countdown Calendar that I made two years ago {link to the other one}.  This one definitely has more of a Spring-y look to it.  I only wanted to use products I had on this is what I came up with.

I was inspired by Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane Rose fabric and took those colors into my overall design.  {I also used a little bit of Amy Butler Ikat fabric} The frame is a cheap-o one from Ikea that is about a 20"x20" size, I think it was around $7.  I wrote out "Valentine's Day" and stitched in on some pink felt and then layered fabric, felt and burlap.
I used several items from Canvas Corp: lime mini clothespins, white mini envelopes {I trimmed them down an inch} and burlap. As you can see, it is pretty self-explanatory on how to make it. I also used my go-to glue Beacon Fabri-Tac, I can't do anything without that stuff!! I used a small tipped Sharpie to write out the dates on the envelopes.

You can add love notes or special messages to the inside of the envelopes.



  1. This is so stinkin' cute!!! I think I need to make one of these!!

  2. This is absolutely charming! The sweetest color and pattern combinations. LOVE!
