Something I really wanted to do this year; was make some His and Hers Valentines mugs using my Cricut, and some vinyl. This was quite easy to achieve, and I already had the perfect font on my laptop.
I’ve said before that we don’t really take Valentine’s Day very seriously as a couple; earlier this week; Stu picked me up a new toothbrush and joked he was tempted to give it to me on Sunday… But as it’s so cold at the moment I came up with the perfect gift; (which clearly is going to be seen a bit early!).
His and Hers Valentines Mugs
I wanted to come up with a simple decal for two plain white mugs (picked up in a local shop; while on a totally different errand!) something that was “us” while also being cute enough to blog about…
We LOVE Disney, and have great memories of trips to Disneyland Paris; so, loading up the Cricut design space, I found just the right font; and did a super simple cut-out from a basic heart shape.
Considering the recent cold weather; I went ahead and loaded the mugs with hot chocolate, a cheeky Baileys and of course some marshmallows! Perfect for a Valentines night in!

Of course “his and hers valentines” isn’t necessarily my style; but when you bring Disney into the mix, I can’t stop myself; and while I had the Cricut out, I thought of a fun addition…
A short sentence later, I was done, with some vinyl to spare. (You do need permanent vinyl for this project; I liked the Cricut branded one and found it easy to use, and it apparently washes well over time).
A Plate For Sweet Treats
I ended up putting a cute sentiment on a plain white plate too! I baked, of course, because I don’t need an excuse! My recipe will be available here in a couple of days time! Red velvet heart shaped cupcakes, with pink cream cheese frosting… Because if I go with a theme, I go with a theme!
So, here it is all together, our his and hers valentines mugs, plate and cake!
