Truly- Madly- Deeply- Valentine Heart Lantern- Lips Box- Ornate Cards

Hello my crafty friends. I hope that everyone that had that flu
is well again by now.  Your well wishes really helped lift me up.
Thank you all!
I'm back to normal and have been crafting this gorgeous
Valentine heart lantern and cards by Bird's collection,
"Truly, Madly, Deeply"
It's simply divine!

You can get the collection by clicking on the link below.
And it comes with a step by step tutorial. How cool is that!

Up first is this lovely heart lantern that I cut out on my Cricut Maker, 
using white cardstock. I embossed the top lid with a dotted pattern. The
butterflies were in my stash that I bought a long time ago at the goodwill 
and knew that someday I would have good use for them. 
For the middle heart, I embossed it with Anna Griffin Aviary Cricut
Cuttlebug folder. I love this folder and it's the first time using it. 
I think it turned out perfect, wouldn't you agree.
 Since I used velum and it is pretty thin, I cut another heart out and
glued them together.
So pretty when the light shines through!

Side view and closeup of the pretty hearts going up the sides. I put a
multi colored led light in it and it's so beautiful at night and also during
the day. Quite fun and easy to assemble watching the tutorial.
Gorgeous lantern!

Close up of the pretty embossed bird on velum. There were some spots that kind
of tore and that's why I glued a second plain layer of velum behind it.
I love how it turned out!

This is Bird's Ornate framed love card from the collection.
I love how the envelope matches the card. So lovely!

Up next is this lovely ornate framed card all done in blue willow
and white. I used the Blue Rose Cottage from The paper studio that
I got from Hobby Lobby awhile back and I simply love this pack.
I added pearls and a florescent heart to the middle that could be
used for Mother's day or actually any occasion.
Very easy to assemble and is a gorgeous card to send to a special
friend or loved one.

Up next is my pretty pink and black card. Do you notice anything
different on this card? Well, I got distracted by my little pup, Katie
and I glued the roses in reverse. lol
And, when I pop dotted it, I put it on upside down.
I couldn't change the glued one, but I was
able to pop it off to turn it around. Whew! Thank you, Katie! haha

I also cut the love out in white, but also cut it in black and white
polka dots. I wanted the top to be in white and bottom dotted to
give it a different effect.
Hope you like the finished card. I think it turned out great.

Up last is my special card with a cameo in the center. This would make
a lovely Mother's Day card for anyone to be proud of and a keepsake for sure.
I used Graphic 45 paper with two shade of Lilac. I glued only the
black letters on this one, so that's why the "O" is smaller. The paper
was so pretty that I didn't want to cover it up with the full piece.
There are so many colors and patterns to make this lovely card very special.
 The picture doesn't do it justice, it's soooo pretty in person.

I wanted to thank, Bird for her gluing tip in her tutorial, while she glues
 the roses on. I've never thought of putting glue on that way.
If you haven't watched her video, you should watch it for sure.
 Great tip!

PUPPY KITTY and FROG Oh MY~Valentine Heart Box Too

Peeking puppy Kitty and Frog!
Hi again my crafty friends! Just peeking in with these adorable
Valentine sweetie's. While looking through my saved svg files, I 
came across these sweet little cuties in Miss Kates folder. I always
look for her Free files each week and file them away for a rainy day, so 
to speak. These adorable cuties are layered and glued to make a 3d effect.
 All three really went together quite quickly.

This is a Snoopy Magnet!
 I've added magnets to the backs of some, so you can place it on your fridge
or anything metal. I cut 3 layers and one in poster board to make them sturdy.

In fact, I made this adorable Snoopy with a heart for my
puppy groomer after she told me that Katie nipped her mom's finger when she
 reached in the cage to get her.
I felt so bad and just had to make her something to cheer her up.
The front of her reception desk has metal and Snoopy was
 the perfect place for everyone to enjoy.
I think she Loved it!

As for Katie, she's in the doghouse! lol
Oh those puppy dog eye's!
I think she just got scared, but she is a little nippy at times.

You can get these cuties and more files from Miss Kates site below.
They are only 50 cents now and some are even less.
If you sign up for her email, you can get one Free each week.
Beautiful files and designs that cut perfectly on any cutting machine.
She's so talented and happy to share her Free files with everyone.

Valentine Puppy

Cute Valentine Kitty

Cute Frog

Up next is this sweet little kitty. She's ready to share her
Valentine with someone special. I pop dotted her cheeks and body.
Fill the box with goodies or small gift
and she will bring a smile for sure.

Up next is this cutie that will brighten anyone's day.
Fast and easy to make.
I love them all!

This is a Cricut Design Space Access Freebie. In DS type  "Key Hole Heart Box".
This is so quick and easy to assemble and can be used for any treat
or small gifts. It cuts in one piece and very simple to make. If you don't
have Design Space, I'm sure you could google heart boxes and find one
that is suitable.

How about a Freebie Arrow Heart shape!

Butterfly Pop Up Wing CARDS Graphic 45

Just fluttering in with this Gorgeous Butterfly Pop up card by Bird.
The timing was just right for me, since I've been down with
the flu and coughing my head off for weeks right after Christmas. I've not been sick
like that for probably 15 years. Yep, it got me! :( 
I hope everyone is well and didn't contact the flu this year.

I saw Birds pretty Butterfly card really early this morning on Facebook. 
That's all it took for me
to get back to what I love and that's CRAFTING.
Thanks, Bird for your inspiration and beautiful creations.
Bird is sharing this Gorgeous file FREE on her blog.

Click on the link below to get the file.

First up is my favorite, delicious Butterfly pop up card.  I simply
love Graphic 45 papers (Time To Flourish Collection)  They cut just like butter 
on my Cricut Maker cutting machine.
This card was sooo easy and quick to put together that I couldn't
just stop at one. lol 
Gorgeous cards for most any occasion.
Definitely a WOW card!!

Up next is also a favorite of mine,because I Love Roses. Yes, I'm
called the Rose lady on my street. I have roses surrounding
my home and even in my backyard. When they bloom
they filled my home with delicate fragrances.
For this card I used Graphic 45 Children's Hour Collection.

Up next is a very sweet one using Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments collection.
For this card, I used the dotted lilac on the reverse side of the paper to give it
contrast. Although this gorgeous design would be beautiful in
any paper choices. 
Quick easy and fun Butterfly pop up card to make!
And the best part is, I can imagine all those happy faces receiving them.

That's it my crafting friends, showcasing these lovely
 butterfly pop up cards and inspiration.
Hop on over to Birds blog to get this beautiful card file.
Have a wonderful day!
