Whooo’s ready for Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it!

I know some of you will be making handmade goodies for your officemates, neighbors, kids and family.  And…some of you may be making handmade Valentine’s with your kids to hand out to their friends too!

I volunteered to do my 1st grader’s Valentine’s party- so I will also be making crafts and games for that as well!  So…I didn’t think it was too early to get started on Valentine crafts!

For today’s project I used my Silhouette Cameo- and a cut file by Lori Whitlock.  I opened the file, rich clicked to ungroup the images- and then moved the pieces to different parts of the mat, so I could cut them all at once, while using different colors.

This is what my virtual mat looked like before cutting.


Then…I set up my paper colors according to the images on the virtual mat. You can easily see where a particular item needs to be on a mat, if you click on that particular shape- by doing this the exact location will be highlighted to the side and on the top along the ruler lines.

In went the mat- and all of my parts for my project were cut perfectly!

Ready to see the finished project?

I inked the heart leaves- and stamped a sentiment from the Pink by Design stamp set, You’re a Hoot.  I added stickles to the owls belly as well as a punched heart to the sentiment. The patterned paper is from K& Co.

If you missed the new Pink by Design Release- you can see the new releases here – you can also see the Ustream and the fun little box project we made here.

Ps. Those cute candy bar nuggets are decorated with the Pink by Design  It’s a Wrap  and Coordinating Dies

I had a couple people on Facebook asks me about the lens I used for this blurry shot– I used my Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX Lens

That’s it for today- thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to try out for the Pink by Design Team!
