The hardest part about planning a magical vacation is the waiting! I thought it would be fun to create a countdown calendar to help the final days move along.
I placed eyelets in the top two corners and added a ribbon for hanging. Next, I used several Element Stickers
with foam square adhesive for decoration.
So are you headed to the Magic Kingdom sometime soon? Why not make this project for your family to help the waiting game pass more quickly?

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*

Wishing you a very Happy Valentine’s Day! I LOVE my readers! And LOVE this creative community! I’m so glad we have the opportunity to inspired and uplift each other this way!
Have a great day!
You gotta love a holiday that breaks up the winter doldrums with the purpose of telling everyone around you that you love and appreciate them! For that reason, Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays!
I’m up on the Echo Park Paper Blog
today with a sweet little treat door hanger all dressed up for the Valentine holiday!
I hand cut several of the flower clusters from the Fresh Baked Floral Paper
to use as accents around the acetate window on the front of the door hanger, as well as on the handle.
The top of the door hanger is capped off with a cheery, yellow bow with a red button in the center along with a couple of tags. The woodgrain “Sweet Like Sugar” tag is from the Alpha Sticker sheet
and the “Made with Love” tag was handcut from the Made with Love paper
I can’t wait to leave this for someone and surprise them on Valentine’s Day! So fun!

The Carta Bella Space Academy collection
reminded me of that bygone era of metal lunch boxes decorated with a child’s favorite hero. The adorable space cadets were just perfect to use as the focal point of this project!
The attached lid closes by latching onto a raised, silver brad. The hinged handle is also constructed with brads. I love the way the silver accents add an authentic, industrial look to this project!
Boys of all ages would get a kick out of this project. It would make a really fun party favor for your space rangers, as well. Have fun creating!
