Coffee is one of my favorite treats, second to chocolate, so, for this month’s Creative Design Team hop, I designed a Treat Holder for both of these indulgences to celebrate Valentine’s Day.  This adorable Valentine Coffee Treat Holder can be filled with any of your favorite sweets & treats to give for any occasion. 

This entire creation was inspired by a photo I found in an old craft book. I redesigned the project in Cricut® Design Space using images from our Art Philosophy Collection, then used the images to decorate a reusable coffee mug that I purchased from Michaels.  I have included links to all the products I used at the very bottom of this post. 

In my process video, I will show you how I put together my design for this Valentine Coffee Treat Holder using features like Contour and Print-then-Cut in Design Space®. You will also have an opportunity to see how I use the Oh My Heart papers to make this a truly whimsical Valentine craft you can create and give. 

This little Valentine Coffee Treat Holder was fun to create and will be even more enjoyable to give away on Valentine’s Day.  Since this one is a bit on the “girly” side, I am working on a few more treat holders for my boys using the Spruced Up collection. I can’t wait to show them to you.  If you wish to make a few treats of your own, you can view the video tutorial I createdand see how easy these Valentine Coffee Treat Holders are to make. 

Make sure to stop by my YouTube channel to view all of the other Creative Design Team creations.  Katy Donaldson Taylor, from Scrapin Katy, is next on the list with an adorable Treat Holder designed just for you.

As many of you know, I am a bit of a Cricut® addict. I love using this wonderful machine along with our Cricut® collections for paper crafting & home decor. Can you imagine my excitement when Close to My Heart introduced their NEW SvGs?  I could not wait to be able to play with them. MissCarriesCreations-CTMHSVGMugs.jpg

This time, instead of creating something out of paper, I chose to alter a few of the New SvG images to create a few Christmas Gifts.  For each these coffee mugs, I used images from the Family History, School Days, and Where Our Story Begins files. After creating my design, I cut each one from Premium Outdoor Vinyl.

I then used a Weeding Tool to remove the excess Vinyl & applied Transfer Tape over each of the images. If I were creating a sign, I would layer all the images together, then apply at once. I have found that it is much easier to apply the images separately with cups & mugs.

Are you ready to start playing with our New SvG images?If you are still a little confused about using Vinyl & SvG images, I have created a short video showing how I made one of these mugs. There will also be a Tutorial showing how to upload SvGs into Design Space posted here on my blog next Tuesday.

Now ‘Hop” on over to Alyson Mayo’s blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting tips and other fun ideas. Currently, we have over TEN SvGs that are ready for you to create with. Contact your CTMH Consultant, or visit the Digital Art tab of my website to see how you can get the bundle for only $7.95.

I can’t wait to see what you create!
