FREEBIE: Silhouette Mint Designs & Valentines

0 Comment

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! I swear it was just Thanksgiving. This time of year just flies right on by. I’m teaming up with Silhouette (my favorite, as you know) to provide you with some fun printables in time for Valentine’s Day!


The Silhouette Mint is one of my favorite new gadgets of all time. I can create a stamp in minutes. Literally. If you haven’t seen my youtube video on the process check it out here. It’s super slick, which makes card making, gift giving and label making so much more fun and customized. I wrote out a few little sayings and drew up a little banner. All these things are available to download free at the bottom of this post. If you don’t have a Mint, no problems. Feel free to use the graphics for personal use.


This Wednesday, we had an intimate gathering to learn calligraphy and make Valentines. I wanted to allow these awesome people to use their freshly gained calligraphy skills, but also give them the opportunity to put calligraphy on something if they didn’t feel comfortable writing something out. Each guest got a calligraphy kit and a card making kit with card stock (Thanks to my favorite My Mind’s Eye peeps! We used the dark grey from this line.) and piles and piles of stickers, washi tape and stamps for everyone to deck out their cards to the gills. Because a gaudy valentine is an awesome valentine. Totally channeling my inner Schin Loong.


These little stamps are so fun to use. See below for what size stamps I used for each design.

  • banner: 90×45 mm
  • Be Mine: 30×30 mm (on the diagonal)
  • You’re Hot: 30×30 mm
  • I Freaking Love You: 15×60 mm

If you’re interested in purchasing the Mint. Use code: MELISSA for $20 off a Mint machine! Wouldn’t it be so darling to have your kid design their own Valentine’s card? So adorable. Click the link to read more about the workshop and download the free artwork.


The workshop on Wednesday was so fun. We hit an unexpected road bump with the venue, so ended up relocating to the K2 Realty offices in Suncrest (tip top of the mountains in Utah, no one knows realty in Suncrest like K2!). It sounds weird to have an event like this in an office, but they rent out their space for all sorts of functions (weddings, family gatherings, etc) and the venue can’t be beat. It’s cozy, beautifully decorated and the windows perfectly frame the Wasatch mountains. With all this snow, the sunset was spectacular. My mom snapped the below photo from her phone.



The arrangements were simple and fun. Any excuse to buy flowers is a great excuse in my book.


And for the name tags, I cut out hearts (with my Silhouette Cameo) and propped them up with over-sized clothes pins (Michael’s – $1.50! GO GET SOME!).


Here’s an in-action shot (thanks Mom!) of me teaching upside-down. I love these candid shots. We had so much fun. I’m so thrilled we had such a great group.



Click the link above to download the stamp artwork. All artwork is available for PERSONAL USE ONLY. If you’d like to use the graphics for your business or any commercial work, please email me. We’ll work something out.


Printable includes JPG files of hand-lettered “Be Mine”, “XOXO”, “I freaking love you”, “You’re hot” and “Netflix & Chill”. I hope you enjoy them and put them to good use! Send me links of what you’ve done with the artwork, I’d love to see!

      So cute. I love the lettering. And I never realized how cheap those oversized close pins are. Thanks for the tip!
