Valentine's projects

Hey Love for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #545

Yes, I am using the Hey Love stamp set for another challenge!  This week the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge is a color challenge.


Perfect for a fun Valentine card!


This is the first time I am using this cute little ape.  I colored him using the Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends, quick and easy coloring.


Are you beginning to wonder how this card opens?  Well, it doesn't.  See the ribbon?  You pull it up and surprise!


Don't you love an interactive card?  


Such a fun surprise!   The sentiments are also from the Hey Love stamp set and are just perfect for this pull up card.  

Be sure to check out what the other design team members created using this color combination.  I know you will be inspired!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!  


I modified the January Paper Pumpkin project.  I cut off 1-1/2" from the original card.


Now it holds a tea bag perfectly.  


I used the framelits from the Lots to Love Box framelits to hold the tea bag in place.  I enjoy receiving the Paper Pumpkin kit every month.  The stamp sets are on trend and perfect for the upcoming season.  I also like having everything cut and ready for me to create with.  If this sounds like something you might enjoy Sale-A-Bration is a perfect time to purchase a Paper Pumpkin subscription.   Consider it a Valentine's gift to yourself.

Sending Lots of Love

Have you ever gotten an idea into your head for a card and after a little bit realized that it wasn't a great idea after all?  I like how this card turned but it wasn't as quick and easy as I thought it would be.  Let me show you and I think you will see what I mean.


All those little tags!  All those little bows!  All that lining up, in an attempt to get the tags even and straight!  You can tell that  I gave up on the even and straight part and went for pretty even and kind of straight.   

The little tag is about 3/4" tall and it is from the Bouquet Bunch framelits.  They are so cute.  The red glimmer hearts were cut using the heart die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.   The sentiment is from the Hanging Garden stamp set embossed in white.

This card would make a great Valentine's card.  I hate to mention it but Valentine's Day is coming up pretty quick!

CPC Valentine's Trio

It’s time to get ready for Valentine’s Day!  These projects would be a great way to show your special Valentine that you care.  Give them a little candy treat in the heart pouch, put a little gift into the Valentine gift bag, and let them know you love them by giving them a special double easel Valentine card.  This would also make a great Valentine’s Day class.

Language of Love Scalloped Tag Candy Holder

I confess I bought a big bag of Ghiradelli Chocolate squares at Christmas time thinking I would make lots and lots of cute little favors.  I did make quite a few favors but I think I  might have eaten even more!  So, instead of eating even more I am going to make these favors using the Language of Love stamp set.

Scalloped Tag Language of Love candy holder

I LOVE that gold is back in style!  I embossed the Language of Love heart in gold on Real Red card stock  and embossed a strip of the Gold Foil paper with the Adorning Accents folder.  Notice the vanilla and gold twine-love!

Here are the basic measurements to make the candy holder.  Cut a piece of Real Red card stock a smidge less than 2"x 6-1/2".  Score 3-1/8"  from each end.  Use the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and punch out both ends.    Add all your gold touches, candy, and tie a bow with the twine and you are done!

Fast, pretty and hopefully this will deter me from eating anymore of the chocolate.  Have a creative day and I will try and stay away from the chocolate.

This is a kit from the Whole Lotta Love promotion and you get 18 of these girl monsters.  The kit includes everything except for the candy and the large heart.  There is also a boy monster and he is just as cute.  I added the large heart to cover the candy.  The heart is from the Language of Love set in the Occasions catalog.

CPC Love Banner Frame, Love Notes, and a little Bonus

Today I get to share the project I designed for Craft Project Central.  Valentine’s Day is near and a perfect time to showcase the ones you love.  This Love Banner frame is perfect to display pictures of those special people in your life. We will also make a quick and easy holder for some little love notes and a couple of little cards to put in your holder.  There is also a little bonus project that will come in handy when you want to pretty up a gift card.  This would be a fun project to do in a class and it would make a wonderful gift.
