JAI#55...Just Add Love

Good Friday morning lovelies ~

Lots of love and romance in the air at this time of the year ... do you have any special Valentine plans over the weekend, or on Monday? None here I'm afraid lol.

At Just Add Ink this week we've added LOVE. My little creation is a Valentine gift for Gorgeous Kid. He's the male in my life and each year I give him a little treat of some sort - it makes me feel good, and that's the main thing right? lol

I've popped a little cello bag full of lollies inside for him - Berry Bliss to be exact, his absolute all time favourite and very safe around here because I don't like them at all - the goo in the middle puts me off.

My heart shaped treat box uses Real Red c/s and I've decorated that with RR dsp, a WW strip punched with the Scallop Trim Border, some delicious RR Satin Ribbon, a little bit of bling and a few hearts from the I {Heart} Heart set - stamped in RR and Soft Suede. My photography skills are seriously lacking, you can only just see that I popped a 3x3 coordinating note card in too.

I can't wait to see what you all come up with this week. I'm looking forward to all the different colour combinations and hopefully some great masculine Valentine card ideas. Like most people I struggle with male cards a lot of the time. If you need some inspiration head on over to JAI and check out the design team projects - divine, all of them! While you're there catch up on some BIG news!

Have a fabulous weekend all.


  1. Wow I just love the style/shape of your gift box! Very unique, absolutely perfect! Great job (found you on Just Add Ink). Thanks for sharing :)

  2. My goodness this is seriously gorgeous!!! I'm sure G kid will just love it :)

    I've been so busy and I haven't even had time to think about V'day.

  3. You are way to clever!!! This is a fabo little valentines day gift for GK! He's gonna love it!


    PS - I've never tried those berry bliss things

  4. A very sweet and lovely gift to give someone the heart shaped box!

  5. This is beautiful Patrice and I'm sure GK will love it! Which reminds me, I need to get something sorted for my girls. I usually make them a little something too and with hubby away again this year it is just me and the girls to celebrate it together.

  6. You ALWAYS make the coolest thing boxes and things. Mr. G.K. is gonna feel super loved when he gets this - and if he doesnt let me know, cos I'd love this little number! Love the matching lil card too!

  7. GK is a lucky boy to have a Mum like you - hope he appreciates the packaging as well as the Berry Bliss - cause it is loaded with gorgeous details!

  8. What a gorgeous box design! They look great. I'm sure your son will love them :)

  9. Such beautiful creations for your special boy, Patrice. I haven't even heard of Berry Bliss lollies; if they have goo in the middle, then I'm with you, though! You've done an amazing job with the box and card; I love them!

  10. Love the beautiful box and card you have done such a lovely colour combination

  11. Who is the sweetest Mum in the whole world (gooey middle and all!!)?? GK must have a ball with you Patrice...and I am guessing you with he!! I love the idea of this and the sentiment that it conveys between a Mum and her son. oxox
