Hope you are LOVING this week’s projects!  We sure are. And today we a super cute AND creative card from Design Team Member Andrea Amu featuring the My Mind’s Eye Lost and Found mini collection.

How fun is this little guy?  Perfect for those men in your life …or ladies….I know I would love to receive this for sure.

And a close up…the “fun” sentiment is sanded and hand cut  from the My Mind’s Eye mini collection pack and so is the scalloped shape in the back (see below). So many great uses for it….

Add some glitter from Stampendous and you have a fabulous card with amazing details!  Oh and don’t forget the Petaloo flower. The one Andrea used is white but they are dyed to match Core papers, too!

Valentine’s Day Inspiration Week Day TWO!

Today we have designer Andrea Amu with the Tuesday Tip to create a handmade gift for that special someone….grandmothers, moms,dads, teacher’s aunts, uncles…this is perfect for ANYONE!

Framed subway art! How cool is this. Just create the cuts on your Cricut or diecutting machine and viola! You have the perfect gift for anyone, anytime of year.

And Andrea has some great tips:

1.) Back the cuts in a lighter color so they really pop.

2.) Cuts don’t line up exactly how you want?  Add little embellishments!

3.) AND, of course, a photo! Personalizing it will mean so much.

4.) Add a doily for that soft, feminine touch.

5.) And don’t spend a ton on a frame. Get them on sale at your craft store. You can paint them any color you like!

And a detail:

Leeann Pearce!
We are so excited to have Leeann designing with us for the next few months. AND…HAVE YOU HEARD???
Leeann just earned the amazing title of Scrapbook Master from Scrapbooking Memories! And we have her all to ourselves today.
PLEASE check out her  blog here for more gorgeous creations.
Here is a little bit about these cards from Leeann:
Hello… My name is Leeann Pearce and I live in a small country town called Capel in Western Australia with my darling husband Quentin and 3 gorgeous girls, Holly, Storm and Jorja. I have been scrapping for nine years and I love it! It has taken me on this amazing creative journey that makes me strive for. I have a massive love for all crafting products and I love playing with all the new stuff. But I also like to mix it up with the older stuff as well. Because it’s all still so cool to me. I scrap for a lot of reasons not just to record. I love the creative outlet it gives me – the freedom to create!
I really Love my core cardstock. There is so much you can do with it. Today I want to share two cards I made using Tim holtz kraft-core from the nostalgic collection. I simply trimmed my Kraft core to size and using a Christmas number embossing folder and ran this through my Cuttlebug, lightly sand the top, revealing the Kraft colour. It certainly makes the cardstock pop and adds great texture at the same time. Then I simply finished each card of with a sentiment and buttons and some hand folded leaves.
If you were at our Hard Core Crop you saw these gorgeous leaves!
Here’s an extra for you – if you would like to know how to make these leaves follow these directions.
Special Note: I am NOT the original creator of these leaves…
Here is a close up. I tried this myself and LOVE it! SO much fun especially with Core.
MATERIALS: Tim Holtz Kraft-core nostalgic collection, Core cardstock neutrals, Core Sand It Gadget, Cuttlebug and numbers embossing folder, epiphany crafts star 25 tool and star 25 bubble cap, Webster’s  Pagessentiment royal Christmas sticker tags, basic grey buttons, Prima pearls, machine stitching.
