crate paper heart day collection


It may not even be Thanksgiving yet but the new Valentine’s Day collections are already starting to roll in! Up first is the Crate Paper Heart Day collection!!!

It is soooo stinkin’ cute! There are some really great papers and embellishments that can be used all year around and definitely some that are Valentine’s specific.

I tend to not go for collections or products with cutesy imagery …. lovey dovey collections are the exception to that rule.

This collections has the most adorable heart shaped strawberries, I swoon! And can we talk about the cacti … emoji puffy hearts … and sickly sweet cupcakes? Let’s take a look at these too cute for words products.


Here is an overview of the papers but I wanted to point out a couple of my all time favorites.

My Love: This paper is adorable on both sides (all the more reason to order 2) I just love the irregular dot pattern over the blush hearts. The B side is the most adorable cactus pattern ever.


Sweethearts: This fringe paper is soo cute. I love that it gives the look of dimension without adding any bulk to your projects.


Lovely: This has to be my favorite! It is very reminiscent of a Studio Calico paper I received in a kit that I just couldn’t get enough of. I love the fresh take on a stripe by adding the dot pattern.


And my favorite embellishments have to be the puffy stickers and the 12×12 chipboard.

diy thanksgiving place cards

Can you believe it is almost Thanksgiving??? Where does the time go?

Today I have a really fun and easy diy place cards tutorial for you featuring the Mama Elephant Calli Letters Stamp Set. I love this stamp set and how easy it is to get a beautifully scripty font without having to have good penmanship. Because I have just about the worst handwriting ever :0calli-letters_grande

In the video below I talk about some of the great features of this stamp set. For example, there are multiples of some letters. This will allow you to use them at the beginning, middle or end of the word. They really thought of everything with this set.


Onto the place cards … these are so fun and easy to make. Please watch the video below for step by step instructions. Also, see the product links and keep in mind that has a huge stamp and die sale going on right now and has a coupon code valid thru November 27, 2016 for $5.00 off your order. The code is HARVEST.
