#35 Love Struck 2010 - Valentine Mailbox

Hi everyone! Hope you're enjoying your week so far! I'm hoping to get lots of crafting done this weekend - I have a ton of projects planned! I'm in a blog hop next weekend (Feb. 19th) at Joys Life.Com to celebrate her birthday and really want to get my project done a few days in advance! I'm also planning to create a Valentine's Day banner with my daughter to enter in the monthly challenge at the Cricut Circle blog. We also need to create 20 Valentines for her classmates and 8 more for my son's little friends. Lots of crafting fun ahead so stay tuned!

Here is a little mailbox I created for my son for his Valentine's Day cards. I will be making two more, likely with different designs for my other two children. I am entering this in the challenge at Crafting with Cristina where the task was to create a Valentine's Day themed project that was not a card.

The cartridges I used are:

Love Struck 2010

- mailbox cut at 11 1/2"

- "sweetie" cut at 1 1/4"

- hearts border on the side cut at 4 1/2"

New Arrival

- frog cut at 2 1/4"

It still amazes me how I'm always discovering cuts on cartridges that I never knew existed. I had no idea that there was a mailbox cut on the Love Struck cartridge - love it!

Hope you like it!
