Elzybell Valentine Project


Good Morning Everyone!
After fiddling around on my blog, I think everything is back to normal....and thank goodness for that! As I sit here typing my post, I can't get over how beautiful and sunny it is. The past few weeks, the weather has been so cold and today it feels like a beautiful Spring day. According to the weatherman, the temps. should reach 58 degrees! Although these conditions are temporary, it really feels great and the fresh air feels so good.



OK....I won't bore you with my blabbering. Lately I have been practicing with my Cricut Expression Machine. I really have a lot of stuff to learn and I have to admit that this machine is loaded with possibilities. To make my box, I used the cartridge Tags,Bags,Boxes and More. After I assembled the box, I used my hand held heart punch to create tiny hearts for embellishment.




The tag features an Elzybell image and the sentiment reads "My Funny Valentine".

The box is stuffed with shredded tissue paper and I stamped the words "Happy Valentines Day" on the cellophane bag of chocolates .

stamp Elzybell, sentiment A Muse, inks Copic Markers, Adirondack Pitch Black and Staz-On White, Cricut Expressions Machine, Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge, pearls, ribbon, brads, tissue paper and cellophane bag (SU)

I also would like to announce that I have won a 2 week guest designer position for Lili of the Valley! What an honor and I am thrilled to work with such talented ladies!!!!

Have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs

Hey Risa!! Wow, I love your goody bag! It's so pretty!! Love how you added the pretty beads and that cute image tag!!

I want a Cricut but I decided that I cannot buy every machine out there. I have my Craft Robo and I rarely use it so I decided I'll hold off on the Cricut! Can't wait to see all the fun projects you'll be creating with the Cricut!!

It is beautiful Risa, the Cricut is so useful, I don't use mine enough, must try to get it out more as you say, it has so many possibilities. I only discovered many more things after finally reading the books! I am not one for reading instructions, kind of like to dive right in!
