Be Mine Gable Box

I have several little gifts I want to make for Valentine's Day.
 
For this one, I used the Gable Box from My Scrap Chick! This is a one piece box (cut out on my electronic die-cutting machine) that is perfect for a sweet treat. I have filled mine with Hugs and Kisses.
 
 
I again used the My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Record It: Heirloom. There are so many great patterns in this collection! And the colors are just beautiful!
 
And of course, I am enjoying the Simple Sayings Valentine Edition stamps from Jaded Blossom. It is a great set of stamps for this season!
 
How about a bit of Trendy Twine as well. It adds the perfect touch!
 
And can I just say, don't forget to ink your edges. It really does make a difference in adding dimension. It is a pretty easy technique and helps all your projects stand out.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
 
Many Blessings,

Eeeep! This is adorable! Love this little box and the heart one I saw in an earlier post. People like you really weaken my decision not to purchase a Silhouette. :-) Beautiful projects Melissa! Best of luck in my drawing!

M Miranda Creations said...

Thanks, Tracy! I want a Silhouette myself. I have the Eclips, but I want the Cameo for the print n cut features. If you get one, I want to see your projects. I will surely be following you though. It is people like you that make me wish I would invest in and learn to use markers such as Copics. LOL!

Hugs, Melissa

M Miranda Creations said...

Hey, Brigit! So glad you stopped by. You have been a tremendous influence on my crafting style over the last couple of years. Thank you for that.
