HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!
I hope you all are having a great day. I have a last minute valentines gift for you. It's a great little thing that you can put together in just a few minutes and great for that quick Valentine's drop off next door.
This week the Cuttin' and Stampin' design team is working with the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes paper pack and the Paper Smooches Just a Note stamp set. I also used the Paper Smooches Scalloped Circles dies, Fiskars heart boarder punch and some Bazzill Cupcake cards stock.
I have to tell you that I finally received my We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score board and it's AWESOME to use. I've been crafting on a card table in my living room with stuff in my pink Craftsman took bag and on the floor around me. So when I saw this new took that takes the place of two other items I had to try it. And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!! You can get you one from me for $22.50. Retail Price is $29.99.
I started with my pink paper and cut it 8"x8". I then left it on the board and scored it at 2.5" and 6.5". I turned the paper 90 degrees and scored on the same marks again. I then turned the paper on a 45 degree angle and used the cutting guide to score the corners.
After I scored the paper I folded it into the shape of a open box. I just used some tape to secure the 45 degree flaps to the inside of the box. I used the heart boarder punch on 2" pieces of the pattern paper and secured it around the top to add a boarder.
I used the Paper Smooches dies and cut 2 each of two different sizes of the scalloped circles. I cut in between each scallop and flipped them up with my fingers. to create the ruffled look. I used the smallest scallop circle and cut the middle piece of the flower. I stamped "hi" on the inner circle and popped it up with foam tape. I then stamped out the pen, cut it out and also added some foam tape.
Of course I finished it off with a goodie bag of my favorite treats. At the last minute I used some black Wink of Stella on the pen and to go over the "hi". It will be perfect for visitors that will be stopping by.
You can stop by the store and pick up all the items that I used here today.
Thank for stopping by and remember you still have until Monday night to enter this week's challenge. Anything goes with a writing instrument.
