hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

 We’re only T-18 days away from V-day, and if you’re anything like me, you’re just starting to think about what to do for all those cute kids in your life and in your kid’s lives! Personally, I love Valentine’s Day- any reason to celebrate the people you love is ok in my book.   My daughter and I are still trying to narrow down what valentines we’re going to make for her classmates, but here are some of my very favorite picks of DIY Valentine’s Day cards for kids from the millions of awesome ideas out there. We’ll start with the boys, shall we?

Valentine’s Cards for Boys

1. I “Wheelie” Like you printable: Taylor Made via C.R.A.F.T


2.  Paratrooper Valentine- BellaElla Boutique

Ok, this is not a DIY version, but you could definitely create your own in Picmonkey!



3. Whoopie Cushion Valentine- Paging Supermom

Some girls might find this hilarious, too! I know my girl would. 😉





4.  Tiny Animal Valentines- Sweet C’s Designs


And now, for Valentines that Boys and Girls would both Like! 

5. Love Bug Valentine- Dandee




6.  Custom Eye Chart Valentines- Northridge Publishing

I have to admit- these are at the top of my list! I love how these turned out and the fact that each kid gets their own pair of fake glasses. So very hipster!




7.  Olaf Valentine- My Sister’s Suitcase


Anybody else’s kids obsessed with the movie Frozen? Mine have seen it 3 times in the theater and sing the songs constantly throughout the day. I’m almost afraid to show them these Valentines. No other Valentine would stand a chance.




8.  Mustache and Lip Sucker Valentine- Strawberry Mommycakes via I Heart Naptime




9. “One in a Minion” Valentine- The Benson Street

Oh, the punny-ness of this one just kills me.



10.  “Light up My Life” Valentine- Eighteen25

Love the glowstick- so clever!


11. Rainbow Loom Valentines- Loom Love

Since my daughter is a bracelet-making machine, my guess is that this one will be the winner. Now if only someone would come clean up the millions of mini rubber bands I keep finding everywhere….



There are so many great ideas, it’s hard to choose just one!


Tell us: Do you buy your kid’s valentines or do you DIY?
