Hello,

I meant to get these out to you sooner before Valentine's Day but it didn't happen. As you know, I am a big DIY crafts person. Sometimes my eyes and heart are much bigger than my "time". I want to do more than I get to do but it doesn't always happen. I always make the boys Valentine boxes for school and usually am working on them down to the very last minute. For some reason, I work better under pressure! :)

This year, I finally made everything happen and on time. I made the boys Valentine boxes and cards for school. I really enjoyed every minute of it! If I could just craft all day I would!!

Well, I asked the boys what they wanted their V-day cards and boxes to be. We obviously know what Spencer picked….drum roll…….Minecraft! Yes, I said it, Minecraft. So I made him Minecraft themed cards and a grass block for his box.

Preston's ideas/requests, however, are always a challenge. It puts my creativity to the test and challenges me to a whole new level. Creating something your child will like and will actually want to show his friends at school is way more stressful than an art contest or my public speaking class! :) Preston plays this game on my cell phone called, "My Singing Monsters" and absolutely LOVES it! This game is pretty neat. you create a community of different types of monsters and each monster has a certain sound that they make and you put different types of monsters together in various worlds and make different types of music. Some say bum, bum or la, la, la. One monster is a DJ with ice blocks. Another one plays a guitar that is also a monster. It is pretty cool. They only thing I don't like is the fact that it is free to download but has in-app purchases. This means in order to do anything and get anywhere fast, you have to buy these diamonds and for 200 or so diamonds, you have to pay $10 of your own money. If you want a rare or certain monster, you can try to breed certain ones to get it for free but it rarely happens. So you can purchase diamonds to buy the monster. Plus, you can use diamonds to speed up breeding otherwise, you have to wait 24 hours or so for it to hatch. I would rather buy a game for a certain amount and then not have in-app purchases. However, my son loves this game and I really do too. I think it is such a neat and new idea for a game. So, I set out to design him "My Singing Monsters" Valentine cards and a monster box.

So today I am sharing Preston's Valentine Cards that I made for him of the "My Singing Monsters" cell phone app game.

I am not affiliated with the people who make "My Singing Monsters" game. The characters that I used to make these cards were found on google. If you would like references then I would be glad to give them to you. I can give references to anyone that needs them. I didn't create these creatures but I designed the cards myself. I hope that you enjoy them.


Here are the cards I made. If you like them, then you can download them below.

 To make these cards, print them on brochure/presentation glossy paper. I set my printer to that type of paper and printed them out. They printed out beautifully. Then I layer them out and sprayed a varnish protectant spray and let them dry and then cut out and sign. I also created little stickers to use to keep them folded. We signed them, folded them in half, then used the stickers to seal the edges to keep them folded. They looked better than the real thing and the boys LOVED them because they got cards made by mom and made with the characters they like.

I will be posting our Minecraft Valentine Cards and box we made later.

Here are pictures of our cards printed out and the box that my son and I made together of one of the monsters. His name is Riff. He is the one in the card of the monster that has the guitar that says "I think you are electric!"

We made this  monster in one night and so he isn't perfect but we LOVE him. His mouth is were they put the cards. :)
I hope you have a wonderful year and good health.
