  10. Valentine Paper Crafts 2019 - Squirrel Valentine Card & Raccoon Layout

    i love you valentine's card projectby Richelle Naegle Today, I made a couple quick Valentine's Day crafts using the Silhouette CAMEO 3. You can download the images you see here from the Silhouette Studio. If you want to save some money in the process, buy one of our download cards here at a discounted rate. This first image from my card project is called Woodland Love Squirrel Valentines. She is cut out at 4" tall, making her perfect for a 4" x 6" card. The Pebbles Loves Me collection would work perfectly for this card (and the scrapbook page that I made, as well). Raccoon Valentine Layout Naturally, I followed the card up with a Valentine-themed scrapbook layout. The featured photo frame is 5" x 7". I normally only take one picture for Valentine's Day each year, but if you want two photos, swap out my frame for a couple 4" x 6" frames. This adorable raccoon, once again, came from the Silhouette Studio. It's called Woodland Love Raccoon Valentines. I made him about 5" tall, and the word "Love" is from Love Dog w/ Balloon, but I left the dog out. I love the font from that design. Continue reading →
