Save time and money this Valentine's Day

With Creative Memories products, preparing for Valentine's Day can be fun, easy and economical. Here I used leftover Creative Memories paper from previous paper packs to make a greeting card. It was easy with my Creative Memories Custom Cutting System, I used the heart shaped cutter and red blade for the large heart and I used the heart punches for the smaller hearts. I then used a couple of strips of coordinating paper and I stamped the word "love" in the corner for my little message.

For my gift, I chose to make a little gift bag using my Creative Memories paper and my Cricut machine. I plan to fill it with candy for my sweetie.
