impressive catalog of over 300,000 high resolution, royalty free images and turn them into, well anything! That is the beauty of using royalty free images!

So as you might imagine my brain was swimming with ideas and different projects to make. Should I make a new piece of fanciful wall art? A tote bag? A pillow? A new notebook cover to help keep me organized through this new year? All admirable and beautiful projects. But I also wanted a chance play with my new Christmas present, a Silhouette Cameo II. With that in mind after I finally decided to make a Valentines inspired wrapping paper using my Silhouette Sketch Pens.

Now that I knew what my project was going to be all that was left to do was make my design, easy right? Wrong! GrapicStock
has so many beautiful images I had a heck of a time picking only one! (To see all of GraphicStocks impressive inventory and to sign up for your FREE 7 Day Trial Click Here)

So I ended up making not just one beautiful Valentines Day Wrapping Papers, but four. Yes, I said four. And the best part is, they are all available for you to download FREE! (at the bottom of this post)

I used a combination of three different GraphicStock
images along with a few free images and texts in my Silhouette Library. All of my wrapping paper designs are easy to use and ready to be printed on your Silhouette machine. However I have also included a few simple instructions for creating the two-toned printing effect in my I love you A-Z paper.

To start my two toned printing processes I first loaded my cut mat with the brown shipping paper I picked up from the Dollar Store.  Now you will notice in the image above all the graphics are set to “cut” or in this case draw. This can easily be distinguished because of the darker pink outline color.

Because I wanted I love you to print in a different color I selected each graphic individually and changed it to “no cut” in the Cut Settings Menu.  Then sent the remainder of the image to my Silhouette machine using the Silhouette Sketch Pen Setting and my black Sketch Pen.

Next *WITHOUT UNLOADING* my cut mat I reversed the graphic settings.  All of the letters were changed to “no cut” and the I love U was changed to “cut”.  Then I swapped out my black Sketch Pen for a medium pink glitter pen and once again sent the graphic to my Silhouette machine.  That’s it!  Super fast and easy!

I love the two toned effect of this I love you A-Z paper!  And the best part is, it really doesn’t need any additional embellishments!  Simple, fast, and beautiful!
