A New Venture for the New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone!  Hope the New Year finds everyone in the best of health.  A new year means, a new and fresh beginning, new goals and New Life!  With the new year comes new goals.  One of my new goals this year is to get "out of the box" on different aspects of my life (I tend to like to stay inside my box).  One of my "out of box" goals is to share my love for crafting. 

So today is the day that I get to share one of my new 2013 goals.  As a design team member for The Cutting Cafe', here is my very first project.  For the first project we got to pick anything we wanted to use from the store.  So, I decided to use something that would go with the next holiday.....Valentine's Day, of course. 

Card Details:
Background printable stamps - Tiny solid dot
Assorted Heart Card Templates - Cutting Files (card nine and card nine optional heart)
fine red glitter (not sure of the brand, I took it out of it's original package and but in a cute jar)
Used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the card out.  Glittered the additional heart and assembled. 

I did a second project and made a little treat bag out of The envelope from:
Assorted Heart Card Templates and Assorted Heart Borders.
To do this project I used my Silhouette Cameo.  I opened the envelope and opened the heart borders over the top.  I filled in each heart red and printed it out.  I assembled the envelope, sealed it and then folded it into a little treat bag.  I crocheted a little heart and attached it to a tag and used a small stamp from Papertrey Ink. 

Go to The Cutting Cafe and check out the store and all the great ideas everyone has!
