Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Love Valentine’s Day Card. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about creating cards for the occasion. The inspiration for my card came from ModaScrap’s True Love Die. With that element figured out, I added more to the card with die from Joset Designs to finish it off. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!
Step 1. Die cut the heart edge from the Valentine’s Edges out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step 2. Choose a piece of patterned paper –– the ModaScrap Simply Love Patterned Paper Pack is perfect for this project. Die cut the 3 1/2″ Dashing Rectangle from the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a Blending Tool with Foam.
Step 3. Die cut a 3 1/2″ Dashing Rectangle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place a stencil with “x’s” overtop of the die cut piece. Sprinkle Red, Rosebud and Hot Pink Magenta Nuance overtop of the stencil and spritz with water, remove the stencil. Allow the rectangle to dry.
Step 4. Place the 3″ Dashing Rectangle overtop of the stenciled rectangle piece and run through your die cutting machine. You’ll end up with the piece shown above step 3 and the piece shown below step 3. Ink the edges of both pieces using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step 5. From the True Love Die, you’ll need the small to large hearts. Die cut the hearts out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Sprinkle Hot Pink Magenta Nuance overtop of the Love heart, sprinkle Rosebud Magenta Nuance overtop of the small heart and sprinkle Red Magenta Nuance overtop of the medium heart. Spritz all three hearts with water. Once the hearts are dry, ink the edges using Black Soot Distress Ink and a Blending tool with foam.
Step 6. Adhere the heart edge to the 3 1/2″ patterned paper rectangle.
Step 7. Adhere the 3 1/2″ stenciled rectangle on an angle overtop of the 3 1/2″ patterned paper rectangle. Foam square the 3″ rectangle to the middle of the 3 1/2″ patterned paper rectangle.
Step 8. Foam square the hearts in a row in the middle of the 3″ stenciled rectangle piece.
Step 9. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5″ x 8″, score at 4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Love Valentine’s Day Card.

I thought it would be fun to make ‘His & Hers’ treat boxes for Valentine’s Day, but as soon as I came up with the title for the tutorial, I had to chide myself and ask this question: Why do some colors get defined as masculine and others as feminine? And why is Valentine’s Day usually pink, red and white?
Color is not assigned the same way in all cultures (the Indian weddings I’ve attended prove that the groom doesn’t have to be the guy in a black tuxedo!) and it’s certainly not the same for all species (Mr. Peacock and Sir Rooster look more like what we in Western cultures think of as red-carpet-ready than their partners, Ms. Peahen and Mrs. Chicken, don’t you think?).
I leave it to you to decide whether one of these boxes looks like it’s for the men and boys in your life and the other for the women and girls.
Meanwhile, I’m going to make lots of boxes from ModaScrap Wood Effect and Rainbow Bark cardstock, label all of them with the word LOVE (in red, the color we have assigned to romance, love and Valentine’s Day) and fill them with goodies: a piece of candy, a golf ball and tee, a lure for my friend who loves to go fishing (who happens to be a lady over 80), and a pair of earrings for a friend whose birthday falls close to Valentine’s Day.
1. Die cut a treat box from Wood Effect or Rainbow Bark cardstock and the word Love from red cardstock. Optional: After die cutting, alter the cardstock with inks, embossing folders, stamps, cut or torn collage.
2. Assemble the box using Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape to secure the bottom pieces and side flap. Fill the box and close the top.
3. Adhere the word Love at an upward angle as shown using small dabs of Beacon Kids Choice Glue. To help you position the word, notice that the rounded loop flourishes on the lettering in the die cut word extend past the left, right and top edges of the front side of the box, but the tails of the flourishes below the ‘L’ and the ‘o’ touch the left side and bottom edge. Option: If you don’t like the word extending as shown, fold the loop flourishes as needed and secure to sides and top of the box.
Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today. No, I’m not the one planning for a baby, but I know people who are! And the great thing about these planner pages is they can become part of an ongoing baby journal!
The new Elizabeth Craft Designs Planners are a great way to expand the use of dies you already have in your stash and allow you to create something completely new.
I love the blues and browns of the Moda Scrap My Little Boy papers and used it for a base for creating this baby shower planner spread. Here is how you can make your planner spread, too!
It’s Sara here today, and I have a new wintery project for you. These cute boxes are perfect for your party favors and for a New Year’s Eve party!
I needed these boxes for two small gifts, and I used them as gift wrap, but, as I told you before, they are perfect for so many occasions.
Most of the work is done by these wonderful stamps from Krista Schneider.
