Lori Whitlock February Hop: Valentine's Day Layout & Gifts

Hello there!  The Lori Whitlock team is back with our monthly blog hop.  You should be arriving here from Corri's blog or if you are just joining in, you can start from the beginning at Lori's blog.  :)

Today I have several Valentine's themed projects to share with you using Lori Whitlock's fun cutting files and papers from Pebbles We Go Together collection. 

Up first is a little Valentine's Day card and matching gift box...

Valentine's Day Gift Box & Card set by Mendi Yoshikawa (using Lori Whitlock mailbox cutting file & Pebbles papers)

I used Lori's adorable 3D Mailbox, adding scalloped trim by welding together several of her scalloped borders from her Simple Borders set.  I love the extra touch of detail this extra step added!

For the matching card I used one of Lori's 3x4 life cards as a little tag to go inside the life card folders.  By sewing up the edges I was able to turn it into a pocket to hide a little message in.  I finished off my card with a Pebbles epoxy sticker from the same "We Go Together" collection.

Up next I have a layout I created with the same collection of papers.

The hearts from Lori's Valentines Borders 2 was the perfect shape and size for some Pebbles Be Mine Puffy Heart Stickers I had on hand.  For my title I die-cut part of the Valentine's Day Script title and paired it with some October Afternoon stickers which I stitched in place.
