Hello Kitty Valentine

Finally finished doing my great niece's valentines last night.  I had been looking for the past year for the "Hello Kitty" Cricut cartridge but didn't want to give my firstborn to get it. The prices for used cartridges were just out of this world.  I was lucky enough to have someone offer to sell me their cartridge before listing it. Thanks to Candace Palfrey for that referral. 

My little niece has always loved "Hello Kitty" so I surprised her by making her Valentines with the new cartridge.  She wanted boxes of candy so in order to make it easy, I just cut a shape and attached the box to the back of the Valentine with hot glue (you do know that hot glue and duct tape can do anything).  For this project I used:
Cricut Hello Kitty Cartridge
Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
Silver Stickles
Colored Cardstock
and of course
Jaded Blossom Valentine's Stamps

I have a few more custom Valentines to do tonight then it's on to St. Patricks and Easter stuff for an upcoming craft fair.  Come see me in Dover, TN at St. Francis Catholic Church on Saturday March 9th.  Custom Easter items will be available.  (Of course, I have to wait for my new Easter stamps from Jaded Blossom

Love Is In The Air

Love Is In The Air...Candy Love that is!!  Created a few more Valentine Treats that will be for sale and also used for my daughter's bus kids.  Just love doing these things.  This time however, I used a variety of supplies from more than one stamping provider.  So lets get started...

This first treat was created using Jaded Blossom Valentines Stamps, the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge, and my white gel pen.  So proud of myself for finally figuring out how to use the Bow Easy (thanks to a wonderful You Tube Video)  gracious knows I can't do one without it :) 

Also used the clear bags  and Doodlebug twine that I carry in my store at Creative Cutters Corner 

This idea came from a freebie tutorial that I received when I ordered my JB Stamps. So simple and cute.

These pencil treats are a great substitution for people who don't want to give candy too.  The stamps I purchased from My Creative Time.

Still have a few more Valentine Treats to make tonight for my wonderful great niece and a few custom orders.  Hope you have a blessed day and lots of crafting fun.
