Both sets are a must have and would be perfect for birthday parties and projects alike. As you can see in the close-up photo I paired it up with a sentiment from The Birthday Tags set which can be found HERE.

I thought ribbon would be a fun addition to the first card. That way its not 2 Dimensional. I used SU tag punches to cut out the sentiment. Here's a close-up of Card 2's sentiment:
Card 2 looks a little more old-fashioned than the first. I decided to add a couple of buttons and used tacky tape so I could attach the baker's twine.

If you haven't heard about the Crazy Challenge here's the scoop: There is a new theme, new sponsor and new prize each week. You can make a card, scrapbook page, photo frame, or anything you think of. To qualify for the prize you need to follow the theme and to link it to Mr. Linky on the challenge blog.
For my challenge card this week I used the image called The key to my heart Cecila fairy with key which can be found HERE. It's an adorable image and great for Valentine's Day.
Since the image is in digital form I did a quick flip with Photoshop and made the image face the opposite direction. She was also easily sized to my specifications. What's not to love about digital images?

This week's sponsor is none other than Digital Delights. They have an ever growing collection of digi's, 3D decoupage and more. They have a free and bargain section that is worth checking out too.
For my project I used a soon to be retired image from Pollycraft. I couldn't resist ordering a huge bundle of stamps. To justify my purchase I had to use at least one.
Be sure to head on over to the Digital Tuesday Challenge Blog to see what the DT has come up with this week. That's also where you'll find Mr. Linky. Happy Crafting!!

It's actually a pocket card. Although its rather subtle on the card I cut out the file folder tab from the Graphically Speaking Cricut Cartridge.
I love being able to choose the color and size of my card elements. The hard part is deciding what to make and which cartridge *LOL*

I used a couple of punches for the "Punch it Out" challenge." I used Stampin Up's 3/4 inch circle punch to punch out my sentiment circles and my heart punch by Marth Stewart to cut out the intricate hearts. The layered hearts were cut out by hand and are included in the Heart Shaped Card 2 set from The Cutting Cafe.

It comes with two different styles of bows (Plain or With Holes) and is perfectly sized to layer.
If you are a visual person you can check out the how to video HERE.
For my 12 x 12 scrapbook page I printed the small Loopy Bow (with holes) on a piece of designer paper. Even though the template I used printed where the holes should be punched out I decided to leave them as is and I chose to only use one layer for my bow.
To put more focus on the sentiments I ended up printing out the Remember to dance tag five times. I added a couple of layers and combined the tags and the Loopy Loopy Bow Flower to create a page element.
Here's a close-up of the sentiment tags:As you can see I used Basic Grey brads to select various sentiments for the tags. You could use punches, a marker, hole punch or practically anything else too. I had a little trouble getting good pictures of the full layout. I really need a better camera but I did manage to photograph the main elements of the page.
Don't forget to head on over to The Cutting Cafe for some great printable sets. There is a new background set perfect for Valentine's Day. Printable sets used from The Cutting Cafe: Loopy Loopy Bow Flower and Long Sentiment Tags
