Every year I try to whip up some Valentines Day cards for the local shops. Even though the full force greeting card part of my business is now closed, I still love to make cards and produce them just for a choice few retailers. These four Valentines Day cards are available for only a few weeks of February 2013. They can be found at MADE in Central Phoenix. These are created using the YUDU screen-printer, Japanese Washi Tape and Markers. The bottom on is a red fabric jewelry bag with paper tickets inside.
What’s better then home cooking? Home cooked baked goods – that’s what! This week I am sharing the brownies I made for Valentine’s Day and decorated with powdered sugar. What made these extra special? I used my Cricut and the Valentines Day Cartridge: Love Struck to cut out paper “candy hearts” designs. I laid those paper cut outs on top of the brownies and used a flour sifter to coat with powdered sugar. Results? Love, kisses and a smiles all around.
Step 1: Mix up Brownie Recipe. For my homemade brownies click here: Valentines Brownies
Step 2: Pour the mix into a 5 inch pan.
Step 3: Take out of the oven, allow to cool, place paper cut outs on top
Step 4: Fill a hand squeeze flour sifter with powdered sugar and coat the top of the brownie. Remove paper hearts.
Step Five: Enjoy!
Happy Crafting and Happy Eating – Yum! xoxo Lovely Lula
Who doesn’t love a Marc Jacobs bag? This delicious Love Story Big Heart Satchel causes some serious envy but at $1895 the love is more of a longing. So how about wearing the style without paying the price? After a trip to a couple local craft stores you can whip one up yourself.

Happy Valentines day! I made this fun book out of manila file dividers, scrapbook paper and my Your Story machine. For the decorative skull on front I used my Cuttlebug and the Beware die and embossing folder combo on clear plastic. All of the pages were tucked in and bound on my Your Story machine.
Happy crafting xoxo
