Hi guys! I hope you all are having a wonderful week! I’m back to share a card I made using Hearts A Plenty.  Christmas will be here tomorrow and Valentine’s Day is not that far off.   I used a few oldies, but goodies, for this card.  I started out by die cutting Blackboard & Accessories, and adding some white ink for a chalkboard look.  I think my favorite part of this card are the little details…like the glasses and mustache.

I used Formula For Love patterned paper and love how this paper goes with the chalkboard theme.  The sentiment is from Punny Love…which is such a fun set!

So…what do you do when you want to make little Valentine treat holders and have these adorable little test tubes filled with candy?  You use Test Tube Caddy and You’ve Been Framed Valentine!

You've Been Framed - Valentine

I started out by making the caddies and added some sweet paper, Formula For Love, and die cut the frames.  I love how customizable these caddies are, winter treats (marshmallows, mini chocolate chips), birthdays and now Valentines!  I also used Diagonal Stripe Embossing Folder, as I felt it just added a little extra something to my caddies.

You've Been Framed - Valentine

Isn’t the new paper sweet?  Here’s a side view.  The caddies are super easy to put together and the little Valentine Frames make it fast and easy to customize!

My 2nd card uses a new cutting plate that is absolutely stunning!  It’s called Hearts A Flutter and I spent a little extra time on this one…I really wanted to show what else it could do!  The cutting plate cuts all these little hearts and you can lift the edges of the heart (flutter hearts!  I love it!), but I used the extra hearts (included with the cutting plate) to add a little color.  What makes this cutting plate amazing is not only do you get extra hearts, but you also get this sentiment!

As a final step, I used Formula For Love Sequins and love how they add just the right amount of sparkle to my card!

I’m back for Day 2 of our Sneak Peeks and I’m so excited to share my projects today!  My first card uses this sweet image from You’ve Got Mail Valentine.  If you’ve seen the other releases, then you’ll have already seen the other You’ve Got Mail sets.  The Valentine stamp is so cute!  I love the little birds on top of the mailbox.

You've Got Mail - Valentine

That gorgeous embossing folder is also part of the new release, Twirls and Swirls and the embossed card stock is so nice and crisp!  The stamp fit nicely on Banner Stacklets 2 and I added a few sequins for a bit of extra sparkle.

You've Got Mail - Valentine

My 2nd card today had me squealing when I first saw the stamp set!  The super funny Grumplings are back for Valentine’s Day with a stamp set called Valentine Grumplings.  When I saw the little piggy, I knew I had to use him for my card.  It matched my coffee mug perfectly and it had me smiling the whole time I put this card together.

Valentine Grumplings

Here’s the back side of the mug.  I always think of Chicken Little when I hear this song.  My kids, especially my daughter, who was a toddler then, used to sing this song to death.  It was so cute!

Valentine Grumplings

This card uses SO MANY yummy new releases…Build a Tag 2 was the perfect place to start for my image!  If you saw and loved Build a Tag 1 for the last release, then you had to know Build a Tag 2 was coming, right?  Haha!  I love the Build a Tag sets as they combine the perfect elements for all things tags!  I added Banner Stacklets 1 for the sentiment.  This little piggy is so funny and cute!  The background embossing folder is Diagonal Stripe and the paper is Formula For Love.

Hi guys, I have a quick card to share today!  It uses these adorable Key to My Heart dies.  I love having a good set of key dies and and I cut them out of glitter tape for some “gotta have it” sparkle!  The sentiment is from Love Makes the World Go Round and is one of my favorite sentiments!  The new Square Block Cutting Plate made the perfect layering mat for the sentiment and it’s a simple card to make for someone you love.
