Valentine's {Pop up Card Box}

Hi Crafters,
Happy Valentine's Day! Here is the Valentine I made for my husband this year.  I used this SUPER easy to follow tutorial from Split Coast Stampers Pop up Box Card
The lady bugs are cut from Create a Critter. I did one pink and one red. Our house is, as usual, a home to hundreds of ladybugs this year. I thought it was fitting for my valentine. 
The text is from Designer's Calendar. The little hearts are from Sweethearts. I used a floral pin to hot glue the hearts. The embossing is a nestabilities double sided embossing folder.

When it's collapsed this is what it looks like. It's a BIT too big for an A7 envelope. It was super easy to make and I love the final look!

Thanks for stopping by,

{Happy Valentine's} Cupid Arrow!

Hi Crafters,

One more Valentine's Project for you this week...
I mailed these sweet love notes out earlier this week.

The heart is from Martha Stewart's Elegant Cake Cartridge. The bow and arrow are from Sweetheart's. This is a pretty simple card I let the patterns do the talking here.

Hoping they bring a little love to the recipients!

I am linking up to Cut it Up Challenges! Valentine's Day challenge.

Valentine's Wreath

Hi Crafters,

One of my favorite holidays is coming up! It allows me to use as much pink and glitter as I want and it's artistically acceptable.

Here's a wreath I made for my poor backdoor that still had my autumn wreath up!

I took a wire wreath form and a bunch of scraps I had in the loft. I used ribbon, cotton fabric from a jelly roll, deco mesh, jersey scraps, and tulle. I cut them in strips and tied them around the wreath filling it out. The middle was looking a bit bare so I cut out a bunch of hearts on my Cricut. Most of the hearts are from Sweethearts. I glued the hearts on some bakers twine and tied that to the wreath. I had some larger heart cuts that I glued onto the wreath proper. It's perfect for Valentine's!

Thanks for stopping by love bugs!

It's a Whale of A Tale {Birthday Party}

Hi Crafters,

We celebrated our nephew's first birthday yesterday.  It was a Whale Under the Sea themed party. I helped my sister in law with some of the party decor.
I used the whale from Create a Critter as the main character. The font for the banner is from Cricut Craft room Basics.

The other sea creatures were from Create a Critter and Life's a Beach.

I made a little mini pennant banner that attached to the main focal stick and attached those to other toppers. My sister in law made this adorable whale cake.
