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?

I have one more card kit to show you, and that is the one you can earn for FREE with your Sale-a-bration Rewards. It’s called Precious Parcel Card Kit. It makes 8 charming pocket cards you can create in minutes.

Simple Sketch
I have a stack of old scrapbook magazines that I’m trying to make my way through. I like to pull out sketches that I can adapt with current products. This card came together pretty quickly with a few simple supplies.
Theme: Valentines Day
Supplies: Stamps, ink and paper
Tool: 1″ circle punch
Meant-to-Be-1

I thought it would be perfect for my husband’s Valentines card:)

Stamp Set Used: Meant to Be (Occasions Catalogue)
Measurements:
smallest Whisper White tile: 1-1/4″ x 1-3/4″
next Whisper White piece: 2-1/4″ x 2-3/4″
Night of Navy piece: 2-3/4″ x 3-1/2″

Tip: Glue the white, night of navy, and call me clover pieces together and then punch the circles out (1″ circle) before adhering the whole thing onto your card! Then stamp your hearts inside the circles.

So-Hoppy-Together-Image
I received this card from the super talented Donna Wizniuk…
So-Hoppy-Together-1How cute is this?! I want to point out a couple of things on this card.

First of all look at the shadow. Do you know where that came from? It’s the mountain from the Waterfront stamp set (upside down). Brilliant.

Secondly, she used our Stampin’ Blends to color the frog and unicycle. These high-quality, dual-tip markers in Stampin’ Up! exclusive colors will open a whole new world of colorful creativity. Each color marker comes in a light and dark shade and blend together beautifully. You can purchase them in a color combo pack, or individually. You can search all the colors in my online store HERE.
