Four vintage images are included in this set.
Just where St. Valentine fits into Valentine’s Day and why the day should be named in his honor is a little bit of a mystery – it is really Cupid’s day, and one could scarcely accuse the little love god of having ever been a bishop of the early Christian church.
The St Valentines were, for there were two of them, involved in the early church. One was a bishop of the church in Greece and cured the son of a rhetorician, Craton, of a serious illness. The second St Valentine, who was the main inspiration for the holiday, was one of the earliest of the Roman popes at the time of the Claudian persecutions in the third century.
Free digital scrapbooking paper featuring a vintage pocket watch in three different colors and styles. I made two grunge papers with distressed border edges and one clean and simple patterned paper using the watches. I love the look of old time pieces especially pocket watches. If you are into the steampunk style or are a Tim Holtz fan, but want a digital option, these papers should be perfect for you.
