DIY apple basket valentines

We’ve had Tootsie Pops on the brain ever since our Valentine cherries–turns out they’re extremely versatile. This time, it’s harvest season and we’re going apple picking! But no good harvest collection is complete without Valentine-inspired baskets and a printable worm making his way into the apple love feast. Nom nom!

See below for the full tutorial!

Well, if anything can help get us through a polar vortex it’s the month of love. (We’re big Valentine’s Day fans here, as you might have seen from our new Valentine Shop.)

January book club artwork: Becoming

When we announced our book club book for January, I didn’t expect such enthusiasm behind it. I’m so glad! Michelle Obama’s book, Becoming, really is inspiring regardless of politics. The book inspired our new series of interviews focused on women in creative positions. If you haven’t had a chance to read some of them, I encourage you to do so.

To support the book, I asked illustrator and artist, Cat Seto of Ferme à Papier to create an illustrative quote and she NAILED it. I love how it turned out. It reads, “Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own.” It fits so well with our theme for the month, and you know what, we’re making it the theme of the year.

Valentine Tassel Heart Favor Box

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

While I was in Mexico City last October, I couldn’t turn a corner without seeing cozy felted embroidered pom pom hearts.These hearts are traditionally made by the Huichol, a group of people that are native to central Mexico. The Huichol believe the way to live is to open our hearts so that we may see with our hearts. The felted hearts I saw are symbolic of that mantra and I immediately thought they would be perfect for Valentine’s Day! But I also wanted to make them practical–something you could provide as a little treat. SO! Of course, we made them in paper—cheap, easy, and so makeable! You can cut them out with your Cricut and add treats inside for a thoughtful way to show someone you love them. For a fresh spin, we added in some colorful hearts and fruits on top.

Learn how to make your own and share some love this Valentine’s Day.

Valentine Advent calendar

Valentine Advent Calendar 2019-8778

Ok, I get it. A Valentine Advent Calendar isn’t a real thing…until now! I love a good countdown because oftentimes the anticipation of a holiday is most exciting than the actual event, no?! This Valentine advent is an ode to the season of love and how you can SHOW and GIVE love to all the people around you. I don’t mean to give the prompts away here (don’t look too closely!) but it’s simple stuff. You know, the kind of stuff that really can make a difference. This advent would be great pinned to a bulletin board or wall and used actively to ring in the season of love!
