Valentine's Day Treats

Looking for some fun Valentine's treat bags? Then check out this adorable idea!!

Hello Imaginisce fans! Valentine’s Day being at the end of the week, I am here today to share Valentine’s Day treats that I created with the “Par-r-rty Me Hearty” collection:

With my idea of Pirate themed Valentine’s, I first purchased snack size bags of Pirate’s Booty. I like that they are non-candy Valentine’s. To create the bag toppers, I cut the large labels from several sheets of “Parrrty” patterned paper. I fed each one into my printer to print part of the sentiments, leaving enough room to add the rest with Thickers. 
The next step was to adhere the adorable die-cut characters with foam strips.

I couldn’t resist adding a few puffy jewel stickers (also from the collection)

Last but not least, I simply stapled each Valentine’s on top of the bags.

Aren’t they cute? With all the elements I needed available in the “Par-r-rty Me Hearty” collection, they were simple to make!

Happy Valentine’s Day Buccaneers!

Love You

With Valentine's Day just a week away we asked out DT to create some fun love themed projects.

Hi everyone! Katie here today to share a Valentine/Love inspired layout! Hearts are one of my favorite things to use on my layouts. I find them so versatile...they work with girls and boys, relationships, or anything else that you love! This includes just about everything that I scrapbook so I use them often.

For today's layout I chose to make a layout with photos of my husband and I. The photos are from Formal Night on a cruise that we took about a year ago. We don't dress up very often so I definitely wanted to document it! Here is a look at the layout:

As you can see I chose to feature hearts on this layout. I used two different sized heart punches and punched several hearts from patterned paper, using only pinks and reds.
Most of the hearts are the larger size but I did add some smaller hearts on top of a few of the big ones to add some extra texture. I then stitched across all three rows. To separate the top and bottom of the layout I added a thin strip of black and white striped patterned paper and stitched across that as well. I added a couple of tags and diecuts to finish the top off. 

I used American Crafts phrase stickers for my title and to add another touch of black to the layout. I added two more black hearts to the top to balance that out.

I am loving the final outcome of this layout with the texture of the hearts and the pops of black.

I hope I have inspired you to create a layout about something or someone that you love!

Supplies used:

Imaginisce: patterned paper, diecuts, stickers (Parrrty Me Hearty)

American Crafts: cardstock, twine, foam thickers

Valentine Card Set

If you love making cards for Valentine's Day then you are sure to love these beauties!!

Hi everyone!
Melissa here with a couple of cards to share with you today. Valentine’s Day is close and love is in the air. What better way to share some love with someone than a heartfelt card. While the Parrrty Me Hearty collection may not lend itself as a contender for Valentine projects, I will be showing you today that it indeed is! This is when the “b” side of pattern papers come in handy! I also find this to be a great way to stretch your product. By looking at each piece with a different perspective, you might be surprised at all the clever things you can create that are not related to the original theme of the paper collection.
Here is the first card I created:

For this card, I used some of the patterns that had some of the mellow patterns and lots of pink! Using two different sizes of heart punches, I created a cluster of hearts at the center of the card. This was done on top of some ink splatter I did. I love the texture that paint splatter provides. It seems to fill in all the gaps that seem to be lacking at times.

I fussy cut the flowers and greenery to add some more variety to the overall design.  I love how the blue Thickers alpha just pops off the page! It contrasts quite nicely with the pink and green. 

Here is the next card I created:

For this one, I found a cute heart cut file from the Silhouette store. I love the scallop and layered look. This particular paper from the Parrrty Me Hearty collection worked so well! I also love how the sea stars can just look like regular stars too. Although, the seashell from the die cut kind of gives the ocean vibe away. 

And speaking of the die cut, I incorporated the flower again but cut one of the die cuts in half and layered it behind the heart. So easy and such a fun element to the design of the card.

Thank you for swinging by today and I hope that you are finding some time to create your own lovey cards. Perhaps now you can see another fun way to use your Parrrty Me Hearty papers!

Valentine's Day is fast approaching.  Are you doing anything special on this day?  Do you like to decorate your home, make gifts for others, bake cookies with the kids for school parties?  Do you have a special tradition on Valentine's Day?
Whatever it is that you do why not document it.  We challenged out design team to create some valentine's themed projects and today Monique shares her talents with us.

Hello Imaginisce fans! It's Monique today sharing a Valentine's Day layout created with the fun and versatile Par-r-rty Me Hearty collection.

Can you believe it's almost Valentine's Day? I'm still working on my December Daily and all of a sudden February is upon us! Time flies and thus all the more reason to scrap those treasured memories. The Par-r-rty Me Hearty collection is perfect for that. My last layout featured my 11 year old son and this time I'm using the collection to scrap this photo of my 19 year old daughter and her beau. You almost can't tell it's the same collection, right?

For the background I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the "Half Hearted" cut file from The Cut Shoppe and placed it on top of the "Sirens Song" paper. I filled a few of the heart halves with little pieces of a few of the other papers from this collection. Next I cut two tags from the Shell-A-Brate paper. You'll notice that on the a-side of the paper the tags have designs and text, but on the b-side you'll find the same tags but without the text and those are the ones I used for my page:

I placed the tags behind the photo and on the left side of the photo I added a hand cut heart.

Next came the title, which I also cut with my Silhouette Cameo and last but not least I added the beautiful die-cut with the flowers.

I really love the result even if this layout didn't need a whole lot of paper and die-cuts.

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today and I can't wait to see what you'll create with this collection! Have a great day!
