I blogged a little bit more about this over on My Laughing Magpie, but I just wanted to share with you all here the tag sets I created today! I was lucky enough to spend most of the day, alone, in my studio creating...all available now in our Etsy shop!

Thanks for thinking of us Rach!

I had hoped to have time to post something new & great, but my little one has been down with a terrible fever all weekend & I haven't stepped foot in my studio for days!

CC&M January Blog Hop - Valentine Ideas

Hello everyone & welcome to the first Creative Cuts & More Blog Hop of the New Year!!!
We are all super excited to share our Valentine ideas using the amazing dies available through CC&M!

Hopefully you are joining me from Chris Dickinson's blog (doesn't she do wonderful work?!), but if not, you will want to begin at the beginning - the Die Cut Diva blog - so that you don't miss any of the ideas our talented design team has to present to you today!!!

Now, let's get started...It's Kim here this month, & I actually have two projects to share with you today! The first being a fun black VELVET tag (Large Tag #5) to attach to a gift or goodie bag, in this case!
This large tag is great because it has lots of room to add embellishments! To give you an idea, it measures 3 7/8" x 5"!!
You can have CC&M cut as many as you want in a number of paper options starting at only $0.35 each!!
I added some fun stickers from the Echo Park's "Be Mine" line, added the little stamped key to the fibers & behind this tag is another for me to write a little message on...
Next, I made this sweet little Heart Box cut from the Azalea Stardream Metallic cardstock!
 The box even comes with acetate to place on the inside of the heart window & is super easy to put together! Especially if you have some Killer Tape on hand!! (CC&M has the best prices!!)
I stamped & embossed the word "Adore" on white cardstock to adhere to the front & found some fun Grungeboard Wings by Tim Holtz that I also embossed.
Inside, I stamped & embossed in silver the little "lollipop tree" & then added/popped a little stamped/embossed hear to it.
 I adhered all that to the inside of the box covered in the fun EP polka dot paper! Now all I have to do is add some treats for that special someone!

Creative Cuts & More has some great boxes, cards & tons of "love-related" dies to choose from, so be sure to stop in there when you're done hopping to pick up your supplies for all your Valentines!!

Now it's time to hop on over to Robin Parker's blog - she's our super talented Guest Designer this month!!
