Unlikely Valentines

Hello there! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you feel as rested and ready to tackle the week as I am. It's amazing what sleep and a 3 day weekend can do for the soul :)

Thank you to all the great comments in response to Friday's video! I knew you would love Collage Art and Industrial Chic. I am in love with them too! Remember-they are coming to Michaels shelves so find them there!

I have 2 winners who will receive these two stacks right away! Thank yo to all who left comments. 
Congratulations to:

These are some fantastic stacks. That Industrial Chic has my name all over it.

AND

Beautiful stacks love them both but industrial chic is definitely me ...cant wait to add them to my dcwv collection lol 

Please email me at erinmadsen@diecutsinc.com and I will get your prize right to you!



Valentines Day is right around the corner...I love creating homemade Valentines for my loved ones and also for my boys to give away to their friends. I have some awesome Valentine ideas to show you today that come from some of our trusty stacks. The first two use the "A Type of Art" Stack.


DT Member Britt made this Valentine Trio of cards. I love the letters and numbers that she cut out that associate with love and Valentines. This stack is so versatile since it is far from a Valentine stack!

 

Love the colors and textures that she used. You can see more of her cards on her blog HERE.


The next set of cards is made by DT Stack-a-holic Dayna Sabrina. She also used the "A Type of Art" Stack for her Valentines. I love the intricate cuts that she did using our paper, our papers really do cut beautifully in cutting machines.


So pretty!! Look HERE for more view's of her cards.


The "Black Currant" Stack was used for these last Valentine boxes.


Design Team Member Sara made these adorable heart boxes to store gifts and goodies. I love how the purple foil just shines on these boxes. So pretty!


Sara explains how she made the boxes on her blog post HERE so stop by to get more info!

I hope you are feeling the love in the air! Have a wonderful day!

  2. That True Love card is insanely beautiful! XOXO is adorable. I picked up the Black Current stack during my last shopping spree and that pic doesn't do it justice. One of my all time favorites. In fact, I went to the store ONLY FOR CARDSTOCK..as I am on a patterned paper diet and just couldn't resist...put it down about 3 times and finally just HAD to have it.

  36. Such beautiful, vibrant colors on the valentines! Fantastic designs, too! I was disappointed the heart box is a die-cut, but I think I can figure out a substitute using the scor-pal. At least I'm going to try, because it is just too cute!
