I {heart} Cricut Artbooking for Valentines!

TGIF!  Yes!  The weekend is almost here!!! 

I have a super-quick Valentine's Day card to show you today!  WHY is it so fast you ask?

Let me show you!

Part of the reason this came together lickety-split was because I used this leftover cut from the Close to My Heart Cricut Artbooking Collection.  Did you know this was my FIRST ever cut from the cartridge over six months ago?  You can see my very first project with it HERE that uses the positive cut from the hears image.  I kept the negative in a drawer of unused and cuts...and just pulled it out!  I trimmed it up to fit this polaroid style mat for my card. 

I used my Scallop Border Punch to quickly detail the end of the little tag.  LOVE it!  The little Pink Glitter Gem went on faster than you can say, "sparkle!"  ;)

My heart and "love you" sentiment are from the Lifting Spirits My Acrylix.  I used a super-fast and easy masking technique to use the words and letters I wanted while leaving the rest out.  I love using these old markers to color my stamps.  :)

Finally, I used our Alcohol Ink Markers to turn this soon to be retired (cry) Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon into a shade of Ruby to match the Cardstock.  The ink dries super-fast, so I was finished with my card in NO time!  :)

Thanks for popping in to my blog today and leaving a little sparkle!  :)


  1. Absolutely LOVE this, KIGZ!!!!

  2. Glad to see I'm not the only one who saves my Cricut scraps from time to time. You did a really neat job on this valentine card. And I agree with you--the colorable ribbon will be missed. :-) -B
