Carta Bella Design Team Project - Sew Lovely

Hi everyone, I have a Design Team project from Carta Bella I'd like to share using the beautiful paper collection Sew Lovely.  I loved working with this collection, such great sticker elements and the paper is simply beautiful!!

I thought this sewing basket and sewing form card would make such a lovely gift set.  I love the color combo of this collection, soft with some bold contrasts. like that blue!

The basket is from My Time Made Easy, it's so adorable, fits lots of treats inside!!
I used some Strawberry Cupcake and Tickled With Teal Trendy Twine.

For the card I used Carta Bella's sewing form from the Silhouette Online Store.

Fiskars Fuse Valentine Fortune Cookies

Martha Stewart has a great tutorial on making these felt fortune cookies, I think they're so adorable.  These are perfect for a dinner party just tuck in some after dinner mints.  I used my fiskars fuse with the circle die so they aren't as big, 3 3/5", but still can fit some tic tacs or small mints.

There is a reason behind 
this mixed theme.  My only grand-daughters are moving to Florida with their parents.  
My daughter and son-in-law gave me this news just as I was pulling ideas together for February.  It took over my mind and soon it all kind of CLICKED!

Lori Whitlock Creative Team - Valentine Gift Set

Hi everyone!!  Here's my Lori Whitlock Creative Team project for February, a Valentine Gift set.

I used Lori's 3D Teacup Cocoa Mug and the card with the three snowflakes from the Christmas Card Set 2.
The digital paper is printed on AC White Textured Cardstock.

I didn't use all the elements that come with the card and I switched it up a bit.  I thought the scalloped edge tied in well with the circle scallop on the cup.
I added the flower hearts which you can find in the Silhouette Online Store and the Love You which is part of the Handwritten Title Set 1.  I did a print and cut with both of these on red pattern paper.

This cup makes such a cute gift container, switch it up for different occassions.
The stamp sentiment are both from Jaded Blossom's Simple Sayings Valentine Edition.  The yummy Trendy Twine is Strawberry Cupcake.  The digital paper is from Echo Park's Head Over Heels Collection.
