I've been working on the pieces for Valentine's cards...so I was pleased to see this week's sketch! Love starting a New Year project with a MOJO MONDAY sketch!

I wanted to combine my January SOTM, Cross-Stitch Wishes, with some fancy Artiste die-cuts...and I think it turned out okay. Using up some of my FAV Chantilly papers. (Still available through January)

My awesome DH/Santa got me a 12" Cricut E2,  so now I can cut smaller than 1", and also cut shapes in 1/4" increments.  

Sunday night I started cutting pieces while DH was watching tv. 

I used the heart shapes from page 51 at 1" and 1-1/4". Then cut borders at 3/4", which makes them just a bit shorter than 6", but I only used a small piece. 

So when I checked the new Mojo sketch, I was ready to go and started pulling it together. I think I would layer my patterned papers with solids next time, though.  

I added a stamped Valentine sentiment from the Holiday Tags set, and though you can't see it, the Love stamp is heat-embossed with detailed clear embossing powder. It gives it a bit of dimension. As always I added some ribbon, and a little glitter glue. As I continue to look at it,  it's starting to look too busy. Maybe it will grow on me. 

Check out other great Mojo Monday cards on their blog!

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great week!
