Cut It Up Challenge #9- Out With the Old!

Hi there!  It's time for another challenge over at Cut It Up!  The challenge this time is to create a project that reuses something from the house that you typically would not use in your paper crafting.  Also, remember to use a die cut!  For my project I made a Valentine's Day card.  I punched out the sparkly pink hearts from some packaging from a gift that I received.  I hope to see you link up your project over at Cut It Up!  I will also be entering this into a few challenges.  Thanks for looking and have a great day!  :)

Challenges Entered:

Gift packaging I used to punch out hearts.
Materials Used:
  • Create a Critter 2 Cricut Cartridge
  • Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge
  • Whimsical Designs "With Love" Stamp Set
  • Darice "Hearts" Embossing Folder
  • Gift Packaging
  • White Gel Pen
  • Bling


  1. Your Valentine's card is simply too cute. It matches your header perfectly. I just pulled out my Valentine supplies so I could see what I have left from last season. Once I finish my New Year projects I am ready to get started.
