Valentine's Cards

 Hi friends! Today I'm sharing some Valentine's cards I made for my friends and family. I've been a fan of Stampin Up! for years now and they never disappoint. I made all my cards using the new Snailed It stamp set and papers and Playful Pets DSP.

All the cards have removeable book marks. I colored the snail in with Copics. 

All my Valentine's have or love dogs so I made the bookmarks using these Inkadinkado dog stamps I got on Amazon.

The sentiment on the back is from Club Scrap Literature collection.

All the little bone and heart embellishments I made using shrink plastic. I used clear and white. I decorated them with Copics and then shrunk them with my heat gun.

I just love that little snail! :) I think I'll little googly eyes over his eyes on future cards.

I made all the same book mark cards but with different papers and image placement etc. All the same yet different :)
I'm glad you dropped in to check out my creations today :)

Have a great Day!

Engraved LED Acrylic Lights

Hello craftie friends! Today I'm sharing some engraved LED Acrylic lights I made. I got a Chomas Creations Precision Engraving Tip for Christmas. That thing is awesome! It goes in the blade holder of my Brother Scan N Cut 2 and engraves designs into acrylic and metal. 
I bought the LED light bases and acrylic panels on Amazon. My Scan N Cut can only take materials 2mm thick or less. There are different acrylic pieces that are thicker so I just have to make sure to get the thinner ones. You can get many different shapes to engrave on.

I made nightlights for my boyfriend's grandkids, They came out so cute and the girls love them!

I cut on the backside so the rough side is to the back. They look better that way. Just remember to reverse the writing when engraving :)

The lights come with remotes and you can change the colors.

Ignore the reflections in the acrylic - these were very hard to photograph!

A gift for my niece - it looks awesome in her dorm room.

I put together a bunch of free images to make the designs.

I can't wait to try the Chomas Creations Engraving Tip on other things! I'll be sure to share!

Have a great day!
