Crochet Hook Container

Today I have a fun project to share with you using the newest 2 Cute Ink digital image, Crochet Cat.  It's a crochet hook container.
I cut the box using my Silhouette machine and found the free SVG file on the Internet.

This little box holds a several hooks.

Crochet Cat is colored with Copic markers. 
 Some of our other design team members made really cute "hand made by" tags with Crochet Cat. They are a great idea for your hand made crochet gifts.  Check those tags out on the 2 Cute Ink blog and get your own Crochet Cat at the digi shop.

Cupcake Birdie Tag

Do you love to celebrate birthdays?  In our house birthdays are a big deal and always a lot of fun.  Plus, it seems like my kids have a friend's party to attend almost every weekend.  That makes for a lot of gifts....and gift tags.  When you are in a hurry, grab some colorful cupcake wrappers to make a fun tag. If you are in a real crunch for time, just use a simple "To/From" stamp instead of an image. 

I used the new digi release from 2 Cute Ink called Cupcake Birdie. If you would like to add her to your digi collection, just click here to get to the 2 Cute Ink shop or here to go to the Esty shop

The little birdie is colored with Copic and I added a touch of sparkle to the scallop edge with some Stickles. I also added Glossy Accents to the cupcake icing.

The gift tag is just 3 layers of cupcake liners and a pop dot behind the image. That's it!

Happy Together

It's February and love is in the air. Time to make some cards for all of the special people in your life and let them know they are loved.  I made this card using a sweet new image from 2 Cute Ink.  It's called Puppy Love and you can find it in the digi shop. It's brand new today!
The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! and the papers are Achiever's and Hobby Lobby brands.

I'm Nuts About You!

I am excited to tell everyone that I recently became a member of the 2 Cute Ink Design Team. If you aren't familiar with 2 Cute Ink yet, go over and check out the blog.  Heidi Schwoerer comes up with super adorable images.  Browse the shop and Etsy Store to get your hands on the fun digis!
This little squirrel is the newest 2 Cute Ink image.  He would be great for birthdays or Christmas, but I am using him for a fun Valentine's Day tag.  Pair the tag with a bag of peanuts or pistachios and you have a nice little gift for your Valentine.
