A Valentine Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Creative Cuts and More Valentine blog hop! If you just arrived here from Jenny Erichson’s blog you are in the right place, if you landed here from somewhere else be sure to start the blog hop at the beginning at the Die Cut Diva blog where you will find out how you can win an awesome grab bag of CC&M die cuts! The theme this month is Valentine’s Day (one of my favorite holidays!) here is my project:

A sweet set using dies from Creative cuts and More!

I know a sleigh is normally thought of as a Christmas element but I live in Maine so it is very appropriate. I used the sleigh box in Loganberry Bazzill textured for this. I cut styrofoam to fit in the box and stuck in covered lollipops made with the Small heart #02 die (Just place the pop in between to hearts and secure it with an eyelet or staple on each side)  then I added some flat square marbles on top to anchor the box and give it some sparkle!

A Sled to hold Valentine Lollipops!

For the card I used the 5 1/4 scalloped heart window card and the mini hearts cut from petunia and sweetheart Bazzill cardstock. I cut apart the Bingo Card form the Love grows digital stamp set from Lindsay’s stamp Stuff and adhered the “Love” to the front of the card and the numbers inside. A little paper piercing and scallop scissors complete the look.

and I must admit i feel pretty cool to scrap a photo the day I took it!  When my son came home I asked how school went and her had a great report! I wrote my jornaling on the Library Card and attached it to a tag and slid it in the scallop pocket that you can download for free from this post. The Bingo Cards are new in the Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff Shop today. you get a sheet of 6 printable cards that you can use over and over. The background is white so to get a vintage look I simply printed it on cream cardstock. This saves your ink cartridges too! Here is a preview of the bingo cards:

Miss you card

A dear friend is moving away so a few days ago I sent her this:

Stamps: Crafty Secrets, Inkadinkado Paper: American Crafts, Cardstock: DCWV

Stamps: Crafty Secrets, Inkadinkado Paper: American Crafts, Cardstock: DCWV

How can you resist the cut ladybug with a suitcase? It is from Crafty Secrets. The paper is from American crafts and the blank Bingo Card is my design and you can download a sheet of 6 blank bingo cards here. I used my kaliadacolor rainbow pad to ink up the fun letter stamps from Inkadinkado (I love these stamps for this technique) then stamped “miss u” on the top of the bingo card. I use a lable maker for the “we will” and added a hit of sparkle wih my homemade dew drops. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
