Classroom Valentine Ideas

Minted Classroom Valentines

Valentine’s Day is such a fun day for my kids. I told them this year they will be WINNING Valentine’s Day thanks to Minted! I posted a few weeks ago about how I was so excited to learn that Minted now carries Classroom Valentines so I thought I would share what we picked out!

Minted Classroom Valentines

I seriously had a hard time picking just three designs, everything was so cute… thankfully there is next year because it was hard to narrow it down. Of course in 2017 we moms couldn’t  just pass out a Valentine’s Day Card, could we… hehe :) I think adding a little something extra is fun, mainly because I love a good theme, so I’m going with it!

Minted Classroom Valentines

For the Boys, I gave them each three choices. That way it wasn’t overwhelming but they felt like they had a say. My oldest chose these hilarious Whoopie Classroom Cards. He’s in 1st grade and I know his class with LOVE these! He is a little older so I went with the tic-tac-toe option on the back. There are several backer options, patterns (like I chose for the littles, photos, messages… so cute) The stickers are so cute too! I found the Whoopie Cushions in a pack of 12 for $6 at Oriental Trading.

My middle son is my animal lover! Amphibians, fish and reptiles specifically haha. He chose the “Iguana Be Yours” Valentines then I found these reptile finger puppets, also at Oriental Trading Co. He is OBSESSED with them and cheered when everything came in so I will take that as a great sign haha. I love the back pattern on this one and of course the custom name stickers too!

For Bee’s class I chose these adorable little Llama Fun Classroom Cards with the wavy edge. I can’t handle them… also the Llama Lollipops? I mean come on. They are almost too cute to eat… almost. They are also from, you guessed it, Oriental Trading Co.

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Who can believe that Valentines day is right around the corner? 2017 is already flying and you guys… I am about to make your life so easy. You can thank me later ;) I love custom gifts and today I am sharing some great ideas for any special someone in your life! It is no secret that I love Minted for invitations and Holiday Cards but now Minted is making it easy for Valentines Day too! They are featuring completely custom gifts, some of which include; custom vow prints, custom images showcasing “where you met”, “a special place” etc, and custom silhouette pieces which can be of children or pets! So fun and easy… which means more time for sewing ha!

Valentines Day Gift Guide-01

Something new this year… I love love love this idea! Petite Pairs are sets of Arts Prints that go together, for example a set For Him, Custom Recipe Art and Whiskey Print. My favorite part is that you can upload an old family recipe and it will print in the original handwriting, SO CUTE! MY husband would love this.


How perfect is this Gold Foil custom Vow Art? Minted has an unframed or a framed option (with tons of choices). You just plug in your own vows, choose your foil color and pick out a frame. Couldn’t be easier!

I am literally DYING over these Custom Silhouette Art Prints!! I can NOT handle anything done on the Letterpress. Our Holiday Cards from Minted were letterpressed and I was in love. I definitely need 3 (and a dog one) right?! Hopefully my husband is reading this post :)

My personal favorite might be the Custom House Portrait Art. LOVE these!


A simple but super sweet idea is a a Quote Keepsake Art Print. I think both men and women would love this idea and it would look great in any room of your home.

2016 Minted Holiday Cards

2016 Minted Holiday CardsOh Happy Day… look what is here!! My 2016 Holiday Cards by Minted. I LOVE Minted, which is no secret around here! The quality, colors, designs, uniqueness.. I love it all :) When I see a Minted box on my doorstep I throw a tiny little party haha! I can’t be the only one right?!

2016 Minted Holiday Cards

2016 Minted Holiday CardsI searched and searched this year for the perfect cards (read more about that HERE) but when I saw the Letterpress option I couldn’t pass it up. I have always wanted to do Letterpress cards and I actually didn’t even know Minted offered it until last month! I chose the “Every Happy Thing” cards and they are just SO. GOOD. They have a ton of options too… check them out HERE. We have had a pretty traditional Christmas Cards for the past few years so this felt like a fun change! I also took a little risk because you can’t really preview the neon color on your screen. I trust Minted though so I knew it would be good!

2016 Minted Holiday CardsThis year our photos are from the talented Laura Elise Photography. I highly recommend her if you are in the Houston, Texas area! She is super talented, I love her photographic eye, her colors and crisp images but the best part is she is amazing with kids :)  I felt like we had so many good options that I went with the collage picture!

2016 Minted Holiday CardI also LOVE that Minted addresses your holiday cards for… wait for it… FREE! The envelope design options are super cute too… this design wasn’t actually designed for the card I chose but I thought they looked super cute together.

2016 Minted Holiday CardsThe quality never disappoints, I am kind of a paper product nerd so thick, expensive feeling paper is really exciting, ha!

2016 minted holiday cards Overall I am super happy with how they turned out. Now I have to actually get myself to the post office to buy stamps. It’s kind of getting ridiculous how often I DON’T have to shop in person haha… thank you internet! I hope everyone has a great “week before Christmas” and thanks again Minted for the fabulous Christmas Cards yet again!

Grinch Munch Popcorn

Grinch Munch Popcorn I can’t believe we are 13 days away from Christmas! For some reason this year, the Holidays really crept up on me! I felt like this last year but it really had nothing on my current status haha! We are super busy, I think that comes with having kids that are getting older. Each one of them have more and more functions…. super fun and kind of exhausting. Ha! We are currently in the last week of school over here and you know what the means… field trips, parties, book exchanges, jammie day, and teacher/class gifts.

grinch munch popcorn I have the teachers covered. All of the kids have amazing teachers this year who go above and beyond so we are getting them gift cards to their favorite restaurants. But… that leaves me with class party treats. I came across this Grinch Munch Popcorn from Imperial Sugar and I actually gasped at how perfect it was! Imperial is an amazing resource if you are looking for last minutes gifts  (like me haha) that your kids can help with or just for fun crafts to do together over Christmas break. This treat is super cute and yes, it is sweet, but I think popcorn is a pretty decent snack that kids actually love. This one is super simple but pretty, so people will think you went to more trouble than you actually did haha!

You Need:

-Popcorn Kernels

-Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar

-Vegetable or Coconut Oil

- Sea Salt

-Green Food Coloring

- Christmas Sprinkles/Non-Pariels

Grinch Munch Popcorn Start by heating up 1/4 c of oil in a skillet or dutch oven with a lid. I like to use coconut oil with popcorn, but vegetable will work fine too. Put 2-3 kernels in the oil and when they all pop you know the oil is ready.

Grinch Munch Popcorn When the oil is ready, add in 1/2 cup popcorn kernels, 1/2 cup of Imperial Granulated Sugar, and green food coloring. Remove from heat, add lid and wait about 30 seconds.

Grinch Munch Popcorn Put back on heat and watch carefully (so you don’t burn the sugar) cook for 4-5 more minutes or until the popcorn pops slow down :) Add your Christmas sprinkles or non-non-pariels and sea salt.
