Valentine's Day Banner and Decor

Hi, everyone! Long time no blog, eh? Unfortunately, I had a lot of things going on in my personal life over the last few months and needed to take a small hiatus from crafting and blogging but I want to thank everyone who sent me messages and comments during my absence. It was so sweet of ya'll to think of me while I was away. Thank you so much for all of your patience and thoughtfulness! It meant so much to me.
 
And now for a project...
 
My husband gifted me a Silhouette Cameo for my birthday and I've been having so much fun with it! They are some very cute Valentine's Day items in the Silhouette Online store so I decided to make a few home décor pieces and decorate our bedroom.
 
 
I made up the bed with red, French-striped sheets...
 
 
 
...and created a simple banner using heart-shaped doilies and a Valentine's Day themed font.
 
 
The doilies were cut at 8" each and the font was cut at 4.25". The font is a free font called XOXO; I downloaded it from dafont.com. I used my crop-o-dile to punch two small holes in each doily, ran two pieces of twine through each hole and tied the banner directly to the bed posts.
 
 
Finally, I created this cute "Keep Calm and Kiss Me" plaque. The plaque background and text were cut at 8.5"x11" and adhered to a 9"x11.5" piece of heavy-weight chipboard that I covered in matching red cardstock. The plaque came with a standard heart shape but I decided to use the kissing silhouette heart, instead.

 
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!!
 
Products used:
Silhouette Cameo
Font: XOXO (from dafont.com)
Paper: K&Company and Recollections cardstock

I got a Cameo not long ago, too, and I just love it! I still use my Cricut, but I find myself using the Cameo more and more. Love that I can buy just the cut files I really want! Have you gotten anything from SVGCuts.com yet? If not, you should check them out ~ wonderful cut files, and so much fun to play with! Also look at MissKateCuttables.com ~ cuteness, cuteness, cuteness!!! Have fun with your new toy!

I don't leave a response, however after reading some of the remarks on this page "Valentine's Day Banner
and Decor". I do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Is it just me or do some of these responses come across like they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Would you list of the complete urls of all your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
