All you would need to do is cut them out, add them to a square card base and personalize them with a sweet hand written note.

Another idea is to use them as a background for a scrapbook page. Check out this I Love You layout by Monique Liedtke. She even shares a great tutorial on how she created her background image using the Hugs and Kisses Cut File.

Happy Valentine's Day | Valentine's Day Titles, Fonts & A Digital Cut File

Happy early Valentine's Day friends! Love is in the air this week and starting today and each day this week I'll be sharing a set of digital cut files for you to download. Some of you that visit my blog may be aware of the Christmas Titles and Fonts and Christmas Titles and Fonts 2 that I created and shared. So many people seem to have enjoyed these, that I decided to create a Valentine's Day version. This set includes a variety of love themed titles using some of my favorite fonts. Most of the fonts I used are free, with the exception of just two of them. I've shared a link to each of the fonts for your reference and provided a nice substitute for one of the paid fonts.

Now, those of you that know me also know how much I love my digital cut files. So, of course, I created a digital cut file of the titles for you to download. This set is a zip file that includes a variety of file types for use in most electronic cutting machines.

Have A Lovely Day Spring Card | Simon Says Stamp

Punxsutawney Phil didn't see his shadow on Groundhog Day, so I've decided to celebrate the arrival of an early spring. With joyous thoughts of warmer weather in mind, I'm sharing a new card I created that has a spring like feel. To create my card, I used the Lovely Spring stamp set and Lovely Day coordinating die set from Simon Says Stamp.

I created a simple watercolored background for the card from using a Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Pickled Raspberry. Next, I stamped the images onto the die cuts and adhered them to my card.

To help with the placement of the sentiment I used my new favorite stamping tool - my MISTI! This tool is a game changer when it comes to stamping. It gives you consistent and precise stamping every time using unmounted clear and rubber stamps. MISTI stands for Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented and I have to agree, but don't just take my word for it. This tool was the Paper Craft Winner of the Hot Product Award at CHA in January. How awesome is that?!

Another wonderful tip I want to share with you is a recent discovery of mine. I have found my new favorite adhesive for sequins...Therm O Web Zots Bling. They are the perfect size for adhering sequins!

This love is why I'm so excited about Jillibean Soup's new Shape Shaker cards! This collection of products allows you to create shaker cards so easily. There is no foam or transparency cutting involved. All you need is the die cut card shape, coordinating shaker box and whatever you want to fill the shaker and you are good to go.

For the stamping on this card, I used two of the new Jillibean Soup clear stamp sets called Love Bug and Picture Perfect (XO). These are just two of the 12 stamp sets that coordinate with the Shape Shaker collection.

I stamped all of the images using Versamark Watermark Ink. I then sprinkled them with white embossing powder and heat set them using my heat gun. All of the coloring was done using Tim Holtz Distress Inks as water colors.

The little tag is one of the new Jillibean Soup Jewelry Tags. I stamped it the same as the other images and love how it shows up so well on the chalk paper.

I used a mix of the embellishments that coordinate with this collection and then created a few of my own using my Silhouette Cameo and a digital cut file I created called Make A Wreath. I cut the leaves from some of the Cedar Lane patterned papers and then backed them with another paper.
