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!

I love this time of year! It’s a time to be grateful and ponder on the many blessings we enjoy in our daily lives.
When I think of my blessings, the people I know and love are at the top of my list. Why not take a moment this year to tell them! Drop them by a little note along with a homemade goodie and you are sure to make their day.
Bake your favorite cookies, stack them up, and place in cellophane bags. Tie the bags with a cute ribbon, adding a large, wood button, if desired. Tie on a cute tag from the I Love Family Ephemera pack
and you are ready to place them in your crate and deliver them to the recipient.
You are sure to put a smile on your loved ones face … and give them a happy tummy, too!
The holidays are just around the corner and that means it’s time to spread some Christmas cheer and show the people around us how much we love them. It doesn’t take much to make someone’s day … even a simple treat packaged in a cute way will feel special.
The sleigh was created using my Silhouette Cameo machine and the Christmas Plaid paper
. There is just something about plaid at Christmas time. Swoon! I love it!
I bagged up some premade caramel corn and tied it with some pretty ribbon. I created a tag for the bag by punching a hole in one of the die cuts from the Ephemera Pack
The side of the sleigh is adorned with more die cuts and stickers. I accented the grouping with die cut leaves and branches cut from papers from the 6×6 paper pad
using the Holiday Branches Die Set
. Simple, yet elegant!
After the recipient enjoys the treat inside, they can display the sleigh on a side table or shelf as a holiday decoration and enjoy it for years to come!
