Good morning! Laura here today, sharing a quick 12×12 layout I created. Follow the step-by-step below to see how you can make your own version!
Step 1. Trim papers. You’ll need:
- 1 12×12
- 1 61/4×12
- 1 31/4×12
- 1 23/4×6
- 1 51/2×51/2
Once you’re done cutting, ink the edges of all papers.
Step 2. Using the Stitched Circles die set, die cut 7 circles using dies that one size apart so you have a silhouette and a full circle. Ink the edges of all circles.
Step 3. Die cut or fussy cut 4 butterflies and ink edges
Step 4. Create your flowers using any small Elizabeth Craft Designs flower die. I used the Large Flower, and Bunch of Flowers sets.
Step 5. Adhere everything together and enjoy!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

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.
Hello there, it´s Sanna here again with another guest design team post. Today I´d like to share a mixed media style scrapbook layout with you for a change. I´ve also created a clean and simple card with some of the residue just for fun and will show that at the end of this post. Hope you enjoy today´s inspiration!
