February Cloud 9 Blog Hop

I'm hopping along with the Cloud9 Blog Hop!  I missed it last month and was determined to join in this month!

We have this cute collection to inspire us for this month's blog hop:

I've been trying to figure out what to make for the kids teachers for Valentine's Day and the inspiration piece helped my decide.  I used the Wplus9 pillow boxes and some hearts stamps and dies to recreate some of the designs on these cute kids projects.

For this first pillow box I used the Clear Cut Stackers: Heart and die cut it from Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  Then I embellished the heart with images from Heartfelt Mix and Cupids Arrow.

This second package uses the smaller heart from Heartfelt Mix. 

Both boxes are filled with candy.  My kids keep telling me how much their teachers love chocolate, so I keep sending it in :)

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

Stamps:  Heartfelt Mix, Cupids Arrow (Wplus9 Design Studio)
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler (SU)
Paper:  Very Vanilla (SU)
Accessories:  Hearts & Cupids Arrow dies, Pillow Boxes (Wplus9) Linen Thread (SU),  pearls

These are adorable! I've been stuck for Valentine's ideas this year too, especially since we avoid candy. These would be great for so many little goodies! Love the wrapped twine and the red on kraft!

Very, very cute! Love the simple design, the hearts make such an easy and fun embellishment for these pillow boxes. The twine is the perfect addition, adds some great texture! So glad you were able to join us this month for the Cloud9 Blog Hop!
