Our Free 10 Things I Love Valentine Printable, Links, Winner & Samples!

Hi Everyone,   

This post includes our Free Vintage Valentine Printable  ‘10 Things I Love About – List’ and links to our past free vintage Valentine Printables! Feeling loved and letting others know you love them is essential to our happiness in life and this list provides a fun way to let others know how much you love and appreciate them.

First, congrats to #33, Becky Dunham, who won our , Love Mail ScrapsCherish Clear Art Stamps,  Romance Cotton Scraps and  Vintage Love Cuts 
 Each season we have a some type of free printable as a thank you gift for your support and I love how great this 2013 Free Valentine Printable turned out!  The file was so huge I reduced it to 250 ppi (pixels per inch) so it's now only 1.5 MB size but it's still prints beautifully on 8.5 x 11" sheet. To save this file just left click your mouse on it a couple of times to get it as large as possible and right click on it to save it to your computer. You can see small samples with links to our past 'Valentine Love Printables' images farther down in this post.


Here's 10 Creative Ways You Can Use this Free Printable.  If you think of any more, please leave a comment. I thought of 1 more.  Print a copy for everyone in your family and create a '10 Things I love About Our Family Album Cover', then fill out a page for each family member and present them as cards.  Later, add them all to the keepsake album. I borrowed this idea after seeing Vick Chrisman's Altered Book she made with Christmas photos and cards her family received over the holidays

This List is pasted on the '10 Things I Love About' List but the text is tiny.

Add to a fridge with a cute magnet

Fold or roll, tie with ribbon, add to a lunch bag, pillow, plate, purse or pocket

Add to a scrapbook layout with a photo of loved one

Turn into a postcard back and add an image or photo to the front.

Decorate and add ribbon or wire to hang on plant, vase, wall, etc

Print on fabric to make a mini pillow (add photo for extra personal touch)

Embellish with glitter, gems, ribbon, lace, etc to create a beautiful card

Make 2 copies to cut and add images for a 3D paper tole effect

Cut the inside of the title and frame out and add your own words and photo

Take a photo of your list and send it by i-phone or email to a loved on


      Look at this sweet family keepsake DT leader Vicki Chrisman made using this Free Valentine Printable List with papers from our $9.95 Valentine Digital Download and the new Frame and Bow Die she designed for AccuCut.


        I adore this layout Cindy van Koll our graphic designer made for my niece using our 'free
        printable 10 Things I Love About list'.  The papers, 3D frame, rose and valentines are from 
        our Digital Valentine Kit.   Arissa was so excited and proud! What a great way to boost
        anyone's self esteem and let them know they are appreciated and loved! 


After Cindy made the digital layout above she added some 3D fun buy re-printing the 5 valentines and rose head and adding some pop dots and glitter. You can see how 3D the rose looks below. Too bad the photo didn't turn out great, so I showed the flat sample above. 


  I wanted to show you what I'm working on this weekend and plan to use my new sewing
  machine to sew on card stock I printed with hearts from our Heart to Heart Digital Art Stamp Set.

This is the first EVER sewing machine I've owned and I'm thrilled with it! It's a Brother CS6000i Advance model and was$155.00 from amazon.com with free shipping, 60 computerized stitches, all the accessories, a free arm and a case! 



Here's my 2011 list with 32 Creative Ways to say I Love You and it was the inspiration f0r creating our new 10 Things I Love About List.   Click the link to get the printable full page

This is a link to our  2 Crafty Secrets Free Valentine Printables from Feb 2010.

Here's a link to our Free 2011 Printable Valentine Message adapted from an antique postcard.  I was away for Valentines in 2012 and didn't do a printable.


I also have a few samples I wanted to show you.  Vicki Chrisman, created these 2 new dies for Accucut with a frame you can create albums from and a cute bow die. Here are 2 inside pages using our Cherish Clear Art Stamp Set, still in stock and on sale for $15.50!



DT Member Darlene Pavlick has been busy whipping up all sorts of samples and look at these 2 cute cards for Valentines or they could work for a birthday girl. The cupcake girl is from our Valentine Digital Kit and the little love chef is from our $4.95 Homemade Booklet.



I love this fun birthday card that DT Member Michele Kovack created for a 'golfer guy' because I adore the crazy pants and socks on this image on our SM43 Golf Time Clear Art Stamp Set and we still have this set in stock and on sale for $9.50



Whew, that all for now!  See you soon with more inspiring samples
