Ready for some inspiration? Let's take a look at what the Design Team created using SVG diecuts.

Carolyn made this lovely pop-out card using the file, Valentine Hearts and a Card-pop-out-heart by Samantha Walker #24983 from the Silhouette online store   Stop by her blog for a description of this lovely card.  Carolyn's blog:  Granny Ma's Creative Blog

Whoo doesn't love owls?  Cindy used the owl from the new Valentines Owl set to create this pink and black card.  She says:  "I loved using up all my pink scraps and accenting them with Distress Markers and the water pen".  For all the details, check out her blog:  The Creative Pointe

Octavia created this lovely card using the Valentine Hearts file.  She says:  "I made a box ATC using the Valentine Hearts. I used the Double Heart for the front of the card. I covered the outline (red) and the inside heart in UTEE for dimension. The background is fabric that I embossed with a "love letter" stamp. On the inside, I used the Heart Lock cut and added a keepsake key embellishment.  "To my love" is stamped above thr heart lock - representing that I am giving my love the key to my heart."  Check out Octavia's blog:  T's Corner For Scrappin'

Tina also created a great card using the Valentine Hearts set.  She says:  "This set is perfect for a variety of different Valentine cards there are so many choices.  For my husband’s card this year I chose the heart lock cut for the front of the card, he is the one that holds the key.  Stop by my blog to see what I did to the inside of the card. This is a great theme to join in with the challenge."  Tina's blog:  Tina's Scrap Corner

Ruth always comes up with a great layout design for us!  This time she used the Valentine file to create it.   She says:  "I had a ton of fun scrapping my daughter's first grade Valentine's party! I used the heart with an arrow and the "love" word from The Creative Pointe's Valentine file to create the journaling areas and part of the title! The arrows inspired me to point to different elements in the pictures and the "love" worked so well for describing how the kids felt about their party! I can't wait to see what you create for Valentine's Day for the The Creative Cutting Challenge!"  Check out Ruth's blog for more details:  Paper and Musings

Carmen created this adorable card using two Creative Pointe files.  She says:  "For this project I used the Creative Pointe’s Purse Card.  This file cut like a dream and was super easy to put together.  Just for Valentine’s Day I added the heart shaped lock from Valentine Hearts.  The key is from files on my machine."  For more info, click over to Carmen's blog:  Carmen's Creations

Here Heather shows us the elements to her fantastic Valentine's banner.  She says:  "I used the cupid and the LOVE title from the  Valentine set on the Center Pocket of my banner. The two edge pieces (shown below) feature the heart and arrow from the same set".  Click over to Heather's blog for more pics and all the details:  My Artistic Adventures
