Valentine paint cans for the Grands

Not a very good image but it was the best I could get today. If I'm going to get into making this kind of items and cards I need to buy some supplies. The only paper I bought for this was the
pink with the hearts the rest was just some 8x8's that I had on hand and it was to short to go around the pails. So I had to piece the scallops together. Not my proudest project but the Grands won't care. I did design and cut the money card holder,scallop border and circles in my Silhouette SD. It does cut nice. I don't like do the score lines with it so did them by hand.
I had fun and I will do more. Cards.....Yes I think I might like to give them a try.

Pin It!


  1. Awww...I think they are adorable and I'm sure the grands will love them!
    I'm going to start printing off the papers in the digital kits that I've bought so that I can see the actual colors when I'm working on a card. I'm thinking that I'll print each side a different coordinating paper and then I'll be able to choose which side I want to use. Or, if I want to use both, I can just pull the kit up again and print another copy. Stampin Up has some pretty vintage style paper in their digital line that I'd like to purchase.

  2. Forgot to add...I have to have something crafty to do and I've always loved making the computer craft stuff but just printing a card never did excite me....had to add some bling to them. I want to get started making my cards for the next month so I don't have to throw them together at the last minute. Course, I've always said I'm more creative when I've procrastinated and have a deadline to meet.

  3. Thanks....Picked up the gift cards last night and I need to go back to the drawing board the are to big for my holders.....LOL....I just used the size of a charge card. I guess I need to buy the card before I make the holder.

    I have to have something crafty going on too,like to keep my hands busy. I loved doing wool felt appliqué and I like to knit and crochet. I think making cards would be fun and people will love getting them.

    I received a hand made Valentine card from an old friend yesterday. I don't get a Christmas card from her but I get one for Valentin's Day and I love it.
