Here we are mid January. It's cold and rainy here in CA, and I wouldn't have it any other way. People look at me funny when I tell them I love the rain and it doesn't bother me to drive in it. Now don't get me wrong, I do not like to get soaking wet, but I don't mind getting a little wet to and from the car.
Now onto the Design Team project for The Cutting Cafe. For this assignment we were to focus on Valentine's Day. There are so many fun and great cutting files over at the Cafe that it was kind of hard to choose which one I wanted to make. After a long hard decision I decided on making the Mailbox Template. Who doesn't like receiving HAPPY MAIL? :)
For the mailbox post I used some craft colored AC Cardstock, and then layered it with some stripped black paper. I glued and pop dotted some hearts to the post, looking at the photo now, I could have used one more heart on the left side.
For the mailbox itself I used the AC Cardstock in a pink color. And then I layered some pink stripped paper onto that which I had in my stash. I did not have any Valentine themed paper and realized I don't have many red or pink patterned paper. But I really like the way this came out, as the stripes are on a diagonal to the mailbox.
Not growing up or living in an area that had mailboxes with the flags attached (and really do not know what they are for) I put the flag on backward. I did not realize it until after I took photos. I decided to google mailboxes and discovered the flag direction faces the other way. Oh well, I didn't have the 'heart' to remove it especially since it had all those cool gems on it.
Thanks again for stopping by!
