Man, I am on really on track for my Valentine's crafts this year. I usually wait until the last minute. This week I wanted to make something new to decorate my house, so I came up with this fun, romantic print (pictured to the right).
For the lettering and the border, I used Cricut foil. This material works just the same as regular Cricut vinyl, but it gives your project a little extra shine! I found this wording in the Silhouette Store, it's called Love You Still - Vinyl Phrase.
If you are having trouble reading the image, it says "Loved you yesterday, love you still. Always have, always will." I cut this phrase out at approximately 8.5" x 9.25" to fit on my 9" x 1" painted board.
I love how it turned out and how quick and easy it was to make with my CAMEO 3. The real delight is in framing it and hanging it in my entryway to match the holiday season. It's so fun to be festive with your crafts for every holiday,
My second Valentine's project today is a t-shirt. Every year I slack on my projects and end up buying my kid's a t-shirt at the store (they are growing so fast, last year's shirt won't work). Not this year! I made one for each of them.
I actually made this All You Need is Love design and you can download the free SVG file at the bottom of this post (you won't see the file download if you are reading this post in the feed; click on the post title).
I used the White Iron-on as well as the Red foil Iron-on. I actually thought it would be better to use a sheet from a sampler pack because they are smaller and the heart shape is small (so I went with the Bejeweled Sampler Metallic Adhesive Foil Material). Now instead of having just extra red to play with, I have burnt copper, blue, teal, and purple to use on future projects. Save on all of our Cricut Iron-on material.
I hope you have enjoyed these Valentine Foil Projects. Please inspire us with your paper and fabric craft projects and share them with me on our Instagram page and tag us with @craft_direct so we can see what you have made.
