Welcome to the February Creative Design Team Video Colab Hop! This month, our team has created a variety of Treat Holder projects you can make using your Close to My Heart products. When you have finished watching my video tutorial, you can click on the link in the comments to “hop” to the next video on the list. If you get lost along the way, a complete list of the Creative Design Team & their creations can be found here, on my blog.
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 created♥ and 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.
It’s finally beginning to feel like fall here in Colorado and I am planning some wonderful workshops for you. Today, I am showing you some adorable Ombre stamped♥ projects that you can create at my Coffee & Cards Workshop using our Hawthorn papers.
Each of my Coffee & Card Workshops allows you to come & enjoy a drink of your choice while you create the project using my pre-cut kits.♥ No supplies are needed. All you have to do is sign-up and show up. How easy is that??
If you are a long distance customer or a consultant who would like to purchase the cutting guide, you can do that also. This cutting guide is FREE to you with a $40 product purchase from my website. You will need the Hawthorn Cardmaking Workshop & October Stamp of the Month to create the projects.
I can’t wait to see you at my next Coffee & Cards Workshop. To learn more about my upcoming events, make sure to visit my Events Calendar or join my VIP Group for a full schedule of events.
I truly enjoy playing with paper to create original cards and treat boxes. If you are like me, then this workshop is just for you. On June 23rd, you will have to opportunity to make FOUR cards and this adorable little Fourth of July Treat Box using our New Fresh Air products.
The deadline to register for this event is Monday, June 11th. To sign-up for this workshop, please email me and let me know which kit(s) you would like to purchase.
You can choose to purchase a Basic Kit (two cards & the box), Master Kit (four cards & a box) or just the box itself. I also have pre-stamped kits available for those who cannot attend and Workshop Guides for my long-distance crafters. The guide for this kit includes a Design Space™ file for this box created by me that you are welcome to use on all of your future projects.
If you enjoy card making as much as I do, make sure to take the time to visit my website to see all of the amazingly simple Workshop Your Way Cardmaking Kits that Close to My Heart has to offering including the In My Heart Kit. This kit creates TWELVE cards using our rustic Fresh Air Papers.
If workshops are “not your thing”, you are always welcome to come catch-up on your own crafting projects at my June CTMH Crafternoon.
