Cutting Cafe Valentines Inspiration

So excited about our Cutting Cafe Inspiration projects this time around... it's all about Valentines Day!  I LOVE making Valentines projects even though I make way more than I ever give out... I don't know why!  I used the Mailbox Template and Cutting File for mine and I used the Mailbox 2 to make this cute little 3D scene.

All of these hearts, envelopes, numbers, the mailbox and its parts come with this set.  For the base, I used the bottom of some packaging something I bought over the holidays came in.. it's shaped like a box top, but it was just the base of something that came in a clear box (I saved that for later!)

I did add these cute little wooden lady bugs and mushrooms that my mom gave me.  I don't know where she found them, but I was excited to have a chance to use them.

I used the grass and flowers from the Garden Standups set which is quite awesome itself!  And isn't that snail adorable?  It is from the Animal and Bug Love Stamp Set available at The Cutting Cafe Shop (the Cutting Cafe's sister site that has lots of really cute papers, stamp sets, ribbon, and more!)

I also took the opportunity to use up some of my old school bling!  Love these hearts that come with the Mailbox set with sentiments.  I printed a whole sheet so I have more to use on some cards coming up...

And that adorable mushroom and bee are from the Animal and Bug Love set too... along with some more adorable images... you should check it out for sure!  It's perfect for Valentines cards and I've used it lots of other times throughout the year too!

So thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to stop over at the Cutting Cafe Blog and check out all of the Design Team Valentines makes on the 21st!  You will not be disappointed!
