Well the time has come to literally wrap up our January release.
Today our design team is making something for Valentines Day using some of our older products. We were all suppose to creat something we LOVE for Valentine’s Day.
So take a moment and see what each designer LOVES, and has to share with you:
So, given the task at hand, here is what I LOVE: I love making gifts (obviously), I love re-purposing items, I love a challenge, I love hearts, I love argyle, I love cupcakes of all kinds, I love printing on acetate, I love boxes with windows in them, and I love red, pink and white together and I love this project and how it turned out!
My project today was created at the suggestion of a customer (so long ago I don’t recall-SORRY!) who wanted to see the Hey Cupcake © template resized for just ONE cupcake. So, since I cannot resist a challenge, I took her up on the idea (and am posting it like a year later-sorry).
To do this I cut the width in half to 3 1/4 inch wide on both the base and lid (lid just a little larger obviously). I have a Cameo Silhouette and you can do it simply by moving the nodes.
This was decorated using the Candy Kisses © paper collection because I love the pattern and the colors. It really allowed me to make this project POP without a lot of effort. I love quick and simple projects that are easily duplicated, but has some sort of detail that really makes the gift special.
I added my super sweet bows (resized to about 50% I believe) from the Bow-Tied © cut file. I love little bows, and making my own from paper is every sweeter, easier and more affordable. I always have the rigth color and size for ANY project now!
For the heart window I used the heart from the Flag ‘Em Down © cut file.
I had printed the sentiment from the Sweet Sentiments © set, and the heart cake from the Sweet Treats © set directly onto my acetate, and colored it from the back using glitter pens. Its actually really pretty in person.
