Let's Get Creative!

Welcome to first installment of Let's Get Creative!

I'm not sure about you guys but I'm always looking for new projects to do. There are thousands of websites, blogs, and videos with thousands of tutorials so it can be challenging to find one because there are just sooooo many. Let's Get Creative! will feature some my favorite projects or projects that I think would be of interests to everyone.

New Let's Get Creative! post will be up every other Fridays (two times a month) once a month so be sure to check back for new projects. Also, if you see any projects that you think others will like that relates to the theme feel free to add them. Similarly if you see a project that doesn't go with the theme but you think others will like be sure to message or tweet the tutorial link to me so it can be featured in the next Let's Get Creative! update.

By the way, if you end up using one of the tutorials come back and post pictures of it! =)

This week's theme is Valentine's. I know we're still a couple of days away from Valentine's Day but it's never too late to get a head start. What better way to show someone you love them than with a handmade gift!

Has anyone tried the "52 reasons why I love you deck"? I'm currently in the process of working on one, and I think it's the most creative thing I've seen as a valentine's day gift! I think I'll post pictures when I finish. :)

So I finally finished the "52 Reasons Deck" just in time for Valentine's day! It's way thicker than the original tutorial because I actually added an extra layer of paper to mount each writing. x____x But I really don't mind it lolz. Oh hmmm sorry for the blue-ish light, not sure what's up with my camera -___- because sometimes that happens. Anyways, if you'd like to see a large detailed picture, please click on the smaller pictures above ^^^ they link to the original photos.

I basically wrapped the deck with tissue paper, placed in a box with paper shavings and chocolate kisses. Then added a heart shaped box filled with candy and my bf's favorite cookies and cream chocolate bars. Thennnn on top of that, I added a smaller silver box that was supposed to be filled with fake plugs (he really wanted them, so I made an order on LeN's Asmama survey) but the earrings haven't arrived yet... so I wrote him an IOU instead with some candy LOL, I'm sure he'll be okay with it. If I have time, I'll fill the smaller silver box with some valentine's day scratch cards, since he lovessss playing scratch cards. xD And later tonight, I'm taking him out to Lucille's BBQ.... yay! Haha. <333

Sorry! I was on vacation and just got back the other day so I haven't had time to do it. It should be up by this weekend!

Maybe I should change it to once a month because I can't seem to keep up with once every two weeks. LOL!
