My Funny Valentines

These pictures are from our Valentine's day breakfast last year. I love this tradition we have. I made this page in response to challenge #50 over at the ScrapYourCrap blog. The challenge was to use glitter and hearts and of course it needed to be all stuff from your stash. It is hard to see but there are some heidi swapp acrylic hearts with pink stickles on them as well as some Making Memories glittery heart brads. I added in some Love elsie stickers and a plastic ribbon slide with a heart - I do not know who made it. I am so pleased with this page. Really captured the sense of quirky fun I wanted it to.


A valentine gift box

The All Things Crafty and Delicious blog has another cute free box svg file to use with your cricut! She issued a design challenge using it and this is what I came up with. I got a Cricut Expression this week so I was able to make it a larger size. Mine is 8 X 2 3/4 X 2 inch tall. I am going to fill this box with heart shape butter cookies for our neighbor.

I used the cover from an old Cricut mat to cut the clear window piece from.
The roses are based on this tutorial by Tim Holtz. I used ranger distress ink in lipstick pink on the edges and added distress pink Stickles as well. The centers are Doodlebug bling and the leaves are from silk flowers - I used glitter embossing powder on them. The ribbon is from Stampin Up.
