A Little Love

I love hearts all year round, so when February rolls around I’m extra happy!

I decorate my bulletin board…
HeartsI make the work stations look pretty…
Hearts-1And my classes are filled with heart projects. This first one is a shaker card created by one of my super talented leaders Sherry Roth.
Hey-Love-2And the inside looks like this…
Hey-Love-3Lots of new supplies were used to make this adorable card:
Stamp Sets – Hey Love (Occasions Catalogue), and Lined Alphabet (Annual Catalogue)
Cardstock – Thick White, Lovely Lipstick, Flirty Flamingo
Framelits – Be Mine Stitched Framelits (Occasions)
Embossing Folder – Tufted
Embellishments/Accessories – All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack & Heart Epoxy Droplets (Occasions)

To make the shaker card I adhered a piece of window sheet behind the heart opening. Then I lined the heart opening with our Foam Adhesive Strips. The filler is a bunch of hearts that came out of the multi mini heart framelit. I used Lovely Lipstick, Flirty Flamingo, and the brand new Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets (Sale-a-bration).

The stinkin’ sweet skunk was stamped in Memento Black Ink and colored in with Smoky Slate and Flirty Flamingo Blends.

The second one used the Meant to Be stamp set and coordinating Be Mine Framelits again.
Meant-to-Be-3There is one heart in that set that only stitches, so I used it on the navy background. Here’s a close-up.
Meant-to-Be-4For the third project, I tried to provide a card that used hearts but wasn’t necessarily for Valentines Day. This card idea came from Brenda Nelson and I immediately fell in love with it.
Amazing-Life-1It even incorporates some of the Organdy Ribbon from the Sale-a-bration offerings.
Supplies for this card:
Stamp Set – Amazing Life (Occasions)
Cardstock – Whisper White and Balmy Blue
Punch – Bitty Blooms Punch Pack (Occasions)
Embellishments/Accessories – Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins, Organdy Ribbon (SAB), White Baker’s Twine, Rhinestones

All of the supplies used to make these projects can be ordered through my online store HERE.

Happy Mail

Don’t you love receiving happy mail? When was the last time you sent a card or hand-written letter in the mail to a friend or family member? Card kits allow you to make a bunch of cards with ease. Wouldn’t it be nice to send out a handmade card just because?

Simple Sketch

Simple Stamping

You don’t have to be a creative designer to make a handmade card. Some of the most beautiful cards come from simple stamping.

Last night was my team meeting and the cards we made were beautiful and actually quite simple. We copied 2 ideas straight out of the newest Stampin’Up! publications.

We made the adorable treat packages found on pg. 8 of the Occasions Catalogue:Hey-Love-1The complete list of products used are right on the page so you don’t even have to go looking! They really DO make it easy. If you are looking for a cute packaging idea for Valentines Day, this would certainly fit the bill. And these images in the Hey Love stamp set are not just for kids! They’d be perfect for your fellow book club members or co-workers as well:)

View the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration Brochure HERE.

 The other idea we copied was from the Sale-a-bration brochure on p. 8:Butterfly-Gala-1The background is just strips of cardstock cut at 1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and adhered flat with SNAIL adhesive. Simple, right? I used a tiny, tiny amount of Tombo Multipurpose Glue to adhere the wooden butterfly element.

And it’s always nice to make the inside of the card look pretty too…
Butterfly-Gala-2Once again, all the supplies are listed right there. But this time, this project uses an item that you can get for free. When you buy the products to make the projects shown there, you’ll qualify for the free Sale-a-bration item used: Butterfly Elements.
Butterfly-ElementsThe greatest thing about the Butterfly Gala Bundle is that it includes an amazing punch that punches out both sizes of butterflies at once! And the details on these butterfly images are gorgeous. I’m not even a butterfly person and I love this bundle. Butterfly-Gala-Bundle-ImageThere are so many other options available if you like to keep things simple. Our kits for example are perfect if you like things all cut and ready for you. Contact me and I’d love to help you choose a crafting experience that is just right for you.
