I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Live Laugh Love Valentine

Hi all,

Here is a Valentine I made for my Hubby. It is my entry into this weeks Cricut Circle Weekly Blog Challenge. The challenge is to make a valentine with two Cricut cuts and sequins or gems and ribbon.

I used the Love is in the Air Word Art embossing folder. I used a some scraps of chipboard to make a base so that the hearts on the side of the embossing folder did not emboss. I then embossed a piece of white Bazzil Bling paper . I punched out many little hearts and placed them over the little hearts on the embossed image. I added some tiny gems around the embossed swirls.
The bow is a piece of burgundy ribbon as well as a bow from white glittery tulle.

I cut the lips and hearts from the Love Struck Cartridge in a shimmery burgundy cardstock, and adhered them to the card front with pop dots over the space that where the hearts would have embossed.

I then matted the embossed image on red Bazzil Bling paper and then onto a black card base.

I never really know the best way to showcase these types of embossing images in my projects. Its easier to use the repeating pattern embossing folders. I never mind layering things on top of them, but with these larger images without a repeat pattern, I often find myself struggling with what section to cover up with the top layer of the design.

Thanks for coming... I hope you enjoyed your visit today.

Have a Great and Crafty Day!



  1. Love the glimmer of the white!! Those lips are too stinkin' cute!!

  2. This is so elegant, that white embossing really looks striking, and the red really pops!

  3. I LOVE this card! I think the red is the perfect touch!
