Valentines Made With Love . . . . and Paper

January 23, 2013

With February comes the Month-O-Love! And that is no different at made with love (and paper). Our design team always make love with paper!! Ha! I have a lot to share with you. (I am also spreading the love here by advertising some of my favorite craft suppliers.)

February is about Valentnes. We hope our projects inspire you to create some paper love for the people in your life.
theme: love is in the air
requirements: hearts, ink, decorative edging (from scissors, punches, die cuts, etc), and a sentiment

Happy Valentine's Day from Krista's Paper Cafe and made with love (and paper).

So first I made these pillow favor boxes. I designed the box cut file myself. Not only did I forget half the elements, I do not like how they turned out. I do adore the little buttons that I attached with a small safety pin. The button can be removed and worn on your shirt pocket. I purchased the darling, hand made buttons from Inna at OctoButton. Additionally, the digi sentiments are created by Regina at The Cutting Cafe and the Bee is a cut file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.

Look at these darling buttons--as well as the way that Inna packages them!

My second try brought me closer to the assignment of the month. I made Valentine cards that do not open--they are one-sided. The idea is that your postage is less. Plus I think cards that don't open are very smart. Otherwise, you have two wasted sides of the card. You can write your sentiment on the back. Traditional children's Vday cards are made that way. Some of these cards met the design team requirements, some not. But I did have a lot of fun making these. Again, the digi stamps are from The Cutting Cafe. I am exchanging these in swap at Karle's Passion paper crafting group.

Then, while I was at it and having so much fun, I made these adorable book marks or tags. I used The Cutting Cafe digis. I love the colors and how they turned out.

Lastly, I drew up these heart lockets as well as the keys with my Pazzels software. I think I will put them to use on a card with other embellies. If you have a Pazzles and would like the WPC file for free, let me know. I hope you enjoyed all my Valentines.
