DigiThis is a Valentines Love Journal Inside Heart Box I created using the Calico Collage Digital images. Love using the Valentines Love, digital files and having this heart shaped candy box was a great way to show off some love.
Since joining the Calico Collage team I’ve had so much fun! When she posted the Valentines Love papers I had an idea that I wanted to try. Searching through my stash. If you haven’t seen my studio post go check it out. I found my stash of boxes that my brother gave to me years ago. He used to work for Godiva.
Working in my Silhouette Design software I Traced the heart shape from the box and then began cutting hearts to make the pages. Thankful that the Silhouette software is so easy to use.
Once all of the papers were cut it was time to start putting the accordion book together. Using washi tape I adhered each heart to make an accordion book.
When all of the pages were created I then began decorating with the beautiful Calico Collage papers. I also used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Brutus Monroe and Tim Holtz inks. A few pages of Canvas Corp Brands papers and some miscellaneous papers were used.
Again the Silhouette Cameo 3 was used to cut mats and tags for the journal.
A Martha Stewart lacy edge punch was used to give a beautiful detail to several of the pages. When the punched edge shows then that was a place for a pocket.
It was fun making this journal. Being able to use up a lot of the supplies I had in my stash was a big plus.
Quick process video. Most of it is speed up so that you don’t have to spend two hours watching.
Here is a list of some of the items used:
Prima Paper Flowers
Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Brutus Monroe Ink
Martha Stewart Lace Punch
Pages from an old book
Scraps of paper
Silhouette Cameo 3
Aleens White Glue
Hot Glue Gun

I’m sure I forgot to list something. But I think it gives you an idea of what was used to make this Valentines Love Journal Inside Heart Box.
