Funny little Valentines!

Here are a few cards that I did for Valentine's day.  Some were cut files that I did for grandkids and a couple of business friends.  The other ones with Love on them were made for family.  I know that it is hard to see but the LOVE is foiled.  This was a foiling technique done by printing off the Love with a laser printer and running it through the Heidi Swapp Minc machine layered with the foil.  The results are soooo awesome.  My friend, Penny, brought her Minc over for us to play with.  Hey, I thought.  I have a laminator, I see how mine works.  Pfffftt!  The $20 Scotch laminator (with only 2 rollers) could do the job at all.  Getting rid of that puppy!  Ending up getting a 12" Minc on sale locally for only $!!!  Normal price was $150 and I got it for $80.  I was over the moon happy when the lady on the phone quoted me the sale price.  Happy dance.  Then, I need to remember NOT to take pictures with my ipad.  YUCK......that camera is NOT very good.  Regular camera would have been much better for me!    The cute emoji valentines and the Be Mine valentine files were from My Scrap Chick.

Yes, she crafts!

It feels like an age since I've made ANYTHING!!  With a new business going, it has been hard to find the time to just have some fun.  Here is a valentine card I made for my step-mom and my mother-in-law.  This is a cut file from Silhouette Design store (72826).  I think it looks so sweet.  My friend, Penny, and I got some play time today.  We also played with the Minc and some foiling.  So MUCH fun!  Guess what is on my wish list now!  Yup, a Minc.  We tried my laminating machine and it just didn't come close to adhering the foil.  Yup....a Minc is the way to go!
