Cuttin' and Stampin' Challenge Week #2 - Hearts and Love Week

Tuesday January 15 Weekly Challenge #2


Hello My Crafty Friends!
I'm Teresa and today is my first "official" post for the Cuttin' and Stampin'  Weekly Challenge Blog!  I sure hope you will join in and craft along with us!

Weekly Challenge #2 Tuesday, January 15th thru January 21th.
Use Hearts or Love in your creation. 

This is my very first time using Amuse Studio Products and I am SOLD!

I had the opportunity to use their stamps, paper and twine for this project and I must tell you they are of the highest quality!  I am so impressed and so very pleased to be on Tammy's team and have  the opportunity to create with such fantastic products!
Let's take a quick peek at my project and then I will give you more detail.

This little box was cut from the Cricut Cartridge called Tags,Bags, Boxes and More 2.  It is called a
"candy box" but my daughter thought it looked like a cigarette case! That is so not the image I was going for!  Instead of candy (or cigarettes!) I chose to fill this with little love notes! 
I cut the box out of Amuse Studio paper called Slate -
and I just love this paper! It is nice and thick and the colors are lovely! 
I then used the Amuse Studio Patterned Cardstock in
"bubblegum heartbreaker" to cut a "belly band" and wrapped it around my box.  I layered that with a strip of cardstock and stamped the "XOXO" from one of the Amuse Studio Stamp Sets called
"Love Is In The Air". I was so impressed with the quality of the stamps!
From the same stamp set (found in the current 2013 Valentine's Day Catalog from Amuse)
I stamped the heart in a star burst pattern and attached it to a scallop flower shape.
For the top of my box, I stamped Happy Valentine's Day, again from the stamp set
"Love Is In The Air".
I thought it would be fun to add in little love notes inside the box, so I cut 4 pieces of Amuse Grapefruit cardstock  and rounded the edges. I then layered small pieces of slate cardstock on top of that, first tying on some of the Amuse Bakers Cording in Blush.
I love the weight and the feel of this bakers twine!  
I stamped on each of the pieces of Slate cardstock a sweet sentiment, again from the "Love Is In The Air" stamp set!  You sure can get a lot of use out of this ONE Set!
I really like the font and the lower case letters used on this set.
 missing you
 with love
be mine
love is in the air

I thought this would be a unique way to present a Valentine -- all in a neat little package!
Thank you so much for visiting with me today and please play along with us.
Here is a final look at my finished project:
