Wolf and Fox EOS Valentine

I posted a few days ago a valentines card which included an EOS lip balm for my son’s teachers, which you can find HERE.   I mentioned on that post I designed two more for my boys.  Well here they are.

wolf & fox EOS Valentine ~ Catscrapbooking.com

I really love these two little critters.  I cut theses with my Silhouette and added a 1.5 inch circle to the design where the nose of the fox and wolf would be. Each of the critters has seven layers so I had to line up the 1.5  inch circle in the exact same place on each of the layers. I decided since I was giving this to my son and husband it would design this one with just the EOS and not including the packaging.  I added the double heart and stamped it using Holiday Tags stamp set 1560.  As my son will say “thats so cute”.

Happy Crafting!


Valentines using EOS

Have you discovered the cute egg shaped lip balms called EOS?  I have been seeing them everywhere and there are a lot of knock offs too.   I purchased one for my son as I thought it would be easy for him to use and flavored.  It was a hit so I was then hooked.  Then I saw where people were designing cute gifts using these little eggs.  There are a bunch on Pinterest for Christmas gifts and I have been seeing some for Valentines.  So I decided this would be the perfect valentines gift for my son’s teachers.

Fox EOS Valentine ~ Catscrapbooking.comI just love foxes, so I knew this design would be prefect. This with a Silhouette image which I modified.  I added an oval to the heart to accommodate the EOS.  Since I was giving this as a gift to someone I did not want to open the package like most people do, so instead of using a 1.5 inch circle, I used an oval which was 1.982 inches wide and 2.287 inches tall.  This worked out great!  I used Close to My Heart cardstock ~ White Daisy, Ruby, Goldfish and Black to make the fox and heart.  I did cut a second heart which does not have the oval for the back piece. The bow was cut from some scraps of paper I had.  Isn’t this just so adorable??? Sorry I think it is stinking cute and I hope his teachers will think it is cute too.  Stay tuned for a couple more EOS as I designed one for each of my boys and will post in a couple of days.

Isn’t this just so adorable????  You can have this stamp set starting tomorrow for only $5 with any qualifying $50 purchase.  What could be better than that?

Here is one of my creations with these adorable fox.

Wild about Love ~ hey foxy


I used the Frosted paper pack for the back ground which is retiring today.  I used the Chocolate Woodgrain Washi tape Z1930 to create the log and then punched a 1.5 inch circle which was backed with Black cardstock.  The foliage was cut using Art Philosophy in Topiary cardstock.  I added the Topiary Mini Chevron Ribbon Z1929 and Sparkles Brown and Tan Assortment Z1753 for added interest.

Don’t miss out on this adorable stamp set as it is only available February 1st through February 28th.

Cute Critters

I stumbled on a stamp set which was love at first sight.  If you know me then you know I love most things that are animal related but when it involves foxes, moose or wolves my interest is really peaked.   I saw this adorable fox and knew I needed to have this Lawn Fawn stamp set called In the Woods.  I will drop a hint that if you like foxes then you will LOVE February’s Stamp of the Month with Close to my Heart stay tunes for details next month. Also if you like wildlife then there is another must have stamp set in the upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 Idea book.

Lawn Fawn cards Fox Thank you

For this card I used one Frosted paper for the background with Chocolate, Topiary, Black and Desert Sand cardstock. I also used neutral bakers twine, brown and tan sparkles.    I used an wood grain embossing folder to crate the wood look.

Lawn Fawn Skunk Thank You Card

There was also this adorable skunk stamp.  I used washi tape and the In the Woods cordinating paper pack to crate this card.  I did use one of the petite perks stamp sets for the sentiment and my Cricut to cut the sentiment label.

Lawn Fawn Thank you cards
