I know that Valentine's Day is past, but I want to share the card that I made for my sweetheart!
I chose this darling image of a couple in a "romantic" gesture. It came from Apex Cuttable Designs. First I cut out the image from red card stock. I knew that I wanted to use just the outline of the image. However, this could prove confusing for the finished piece. Thus I used my Pazzles software to erase all the cut line of the image except for the "holes" between the two figures.
And in case you were wondering . . . Here's a peak underneath the umbrella!
What kind of shoes do mice wear?
Here is an adorable Valentine that Amanda created for Pazzles. All pieces of the valentine are made using the Pazzles' InVue, including the sentiment!! Yes, you use the Pen Tool to "draw" the text. You can make the mice your own creation by using supplies that you already have in your craft room. You'll see that I used a gem for the noses.
For the cut file and assembly directions, link to Pazzles post, Mice to Know You. As a side note, I used glue dots to assemble and attache my mice. I felt that using a hot glue gun would melt the chocolate.
Happy Valentine's Day.

Here are some cards that I made recently.
First I will share a few Valentine's Cards that I made.
This is my favorite! The pears are made from a Spellbinders' metal die. I made it as a shaker card and the seeds shake around! I love it! It turned out great and it was hard to give away!
Another shaker card using a camera. I designed the cut file myself using my Pazzles' software.
Now let's switch ideas. I saw this on the web and replicated the idea by using the Pazzles. These are so stinkin' cute. Next time, I will make the chicks a bit smaller.

I am using The Pocket Shaped Card set to make a card. It includes cut files and digital stamp files.
I did print some of the digital images to use in and on my pocket.
I want to be able to write a message inside the card. I used my Pazzles cutter to make an "inline" (or smaller cut) of the bottom half of the card folder.
A Whole Lot of Love. Happy Valentine's Day.
My favorite artist comes through again! Today I am playing with Regina at The Cutting Cafe. Regina's cut files are fun and always easy to use. She has designed an adorable treat cup for Valentine's Day. The cut file includes a few digi stamps to dress up your creation. At the link Regina also has a video to walk you through assembling the treat cup.
The heart treat cup measures approximately 4 square inches. It is 1 inch deep so you can fill it with a variety of goodies! I chose to make my treat cup into a sucker.
The back is made with a handy slider to allow access to the candy.
This cut file includes an arrow to place on the top of your heart. You can see that at The Cutting Cafe website. Using the welding function in my Pazzles software, I combined the Tail of the Arrow with the piece for the Slider.
For this treat cup, you pull on the arrow's tail to remove the slider and access the candy.
Here is how it looks from the front.
