Sentimental Sundays:Die Cuts

Good morning my blogging buddies~
It is so COLD right's 37 degrees outside right now!!
I have my kettle going so that I can prepare myself a cup of my favorite tea right now!!
It's by Teavana and it's called Samurai Chai Mate Tea.  I love using loose tea, because you actually see what's in it and the smell and taste is much more intense, more so than tea bags. 

So while my water boils, I would like to share with you my creation for this weeks challenge at Sentimental Sundays, which is all about die cuts.  
Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I decided to put my Cameo to work.  I purchased a file from the file, which is Lori Whitlock's design, but if you don't have a Cameo, this file will also work with the Sure Cuts A Lot program.  So I finally had a chance to use the cut and print feature on the Cameo, which is my opinion the greatest thing EVER.  I placed the image inside the heart, so I would know how big the image needed to be .... it printed on my computer, placed the printed image back on the mat, cut and WHHHALLAAAA!!!


Look at how cute this cupid is.  Ever since being introduced to per-colored images, I think I have picked up a new addiction!!!  The colors are so amazing, that I couldn't pass up the opportunity to use this image, which was offered to us by The Paper Shelter, who is our sponsor this week!! lets let to the photos:
This is the top of the heart box
This is the bottom/back of the box  
And this the box opened and ready to be stuffed with chocolate!!! Yummy!!!

I love this die cut and I think that I will be using it a lot.  It was very easy to put together and just think of all the possibilities for embellishing a box like this!!! ENDLESS!!

Make sure to stop by the Sentimental Sundays blog and check out what the Sentimental ladies did with their die cuts!!  You will love it!!
