Valentine Heart Box

Did you see my announcement yesterday?
Come on over to, watch the video (locate it by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page for all the details) and sign up to join in on the fun!

The largest heart in the new Hearts Collection Framelits set with its scallops, Twitterpated DSP and the Pleated Satin Ribbon are the perfect combination for this gift box...
Using the Big Shot and the Framelits Die, cut 2 hearts from the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper and 2 from the cardboard backing from the DSP package. Glue one of each together with a glue stick. Adhere the Blushing Bride Pleated Satin Ribbon to the lid of your box with Sticky Strip. Adhere the top of a trinket or button holder to the underside of the lid with Glue Dots and the bottom to the topside of the bottom heart.
My box holds 2 Hershey Nuggets wrapped in DSP and stamped Blushing Bride cardstock
Use Sticky Strip to cover the button holder with DSP. The lid (that you cannot see) is also covered with cardstock. I decorated the top with a Blushing Bride flower cut with the Big Shot and Fun Flowers Bigz L Die stamped with a Bordering On Romance image in VersaMark and sponged the edges with Red Riding Hood ink. Embellish with a Large Basic Pearl, Trinket Hearts Charm and some ribbon to complete the look.

I am so Excited!

Inking Everything With Becky is a brand new membership site that I am a designer for.  12 designers are teaming up to bring you an online event unlike anything you've seen before!

Starting February 1st, twice a day, for two weeks, we will be sharing exclusive artwork designed by myself and 11 creative members of Becky Roberts’ downline, Inking Everything.

As a special bonus, some of the designers will be offering kits for their projects. Card kits will contain products to make 2 of each of the cards including envelopes; while the 3D kits contain products to make one project. There will be a PayPal link on the tutorial page if a kit is offered. All kits are handled by the designers who will be providing the best customer service. Our goal is to ship kits within 3 days; however, some delays may occur as designers may need to order more products.

Come on over to, watch the video (locate it by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page for all the details) and sign up to join in on the fun!
