Thanks for coming by! See you again soon!
Catchy title for a page, no?! Ha ha! In third grade my daughter did a school report about Eleanor Roosevelt. As part of their learning, the class got to make marionette puppets of the person they were studying. At the end of the year they put on a presentation for the parents. They did a great job!
I used mostly American Crafts Oh, Happy Life papers on this page, mixing in a few oldies from My Mind’s Eye (yellow chevron) and another American Crafts paper (red polka dots from Soho Garden — if I’m remembering right). When purging papers from my stash, I hardly ever get rid of basic patterns like chevrons and polka dots … a polka dot is a polka dot, right? These kinds of patters ALWAYS mix in with other collections really well.
For page accents, I used an old Crate Paper Chipboard floral sticker, some red chipboard labels by American Crafts, and some floral die cuts from the Pebbles Homegrown collection. They all play really nicely together!
I typed my journaling on the computer, printed it out on white cardstock and adhered it right to the chipboard labels.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you! It’s the day of hugs and kisses and I have a couple of lovey-dovey projects to share with you using my Silhouette Cameo machine.
This first project is just a sweet little home decor item that you can create to brighten up a corner of your home, or as a gift for a friend to display in their home.
I cut out the heart puzzle images on several 6×6 patterned papers from the Carta Bella It’s a Girl collection. I also added an offset white cardstock layer underneath to help them POP a bit. They are adhered to the background paper with thin foam squares.
I then added the script “love” word on top, and adorned the corners with a pretty floral image.

I WHALEY LOVE YOU Gift Box & Card
Isn’t this little whale favor box adorable?!! He was pretty easy to put together. You can find him in the Silhouette Store. I added some hearts on thin wires as his water spout for a Valentine touch.
A sweet little Whale card to accompany him was the perfect touch! I cut the sentiment out of black vinyl to make adhering the sentiment easy-peasy.
He opens up so you can place a yummy treat inside!
I added glitter paper for his tale for a touch of sparkle! … Everything “holiday” looks better with a touch of sparkle, don’t ya think? *giggle*
