Valentine Matchbook

This is a cute project that showed off to some of my downline members in January at our quarterly meeting. I love getting together with my girls and working with them on some great seasonal projects. We also had a lot of fun with the paints that Stampin' Up! has available. We used the Shimmery White paint and then dyed it pink with a touch of reinker to make it look exactly the way we wanted it to. Sweet right?!
Inside of this giant match book is a pouch that holds about four fully layered cards and envelopes. There is even a space at the bottom to write a sweet note to the person you want to give this to. Valentine's Day is coming up really quick and if you would like to make this project with some of your girlfriends please contact me as soon as possible to get your class scheduled. Just head over to my business website for all my information and to see what classes I've got already scheduled that you are interested in taking. Happy stamping!

Sketch Challenge Card

I did this card for a sketch challenge on the Connie and Julie website. I loved making this 3-D flower using the eyelet border punch, don't you love it when your tools can do more than one thing?! I know that I do! This paper is from the level three hostess set and is so Springy and whimsical I just love it. Hope you enjoyed looking today! Happy Stamping

Sweet Gift

I'm having so much fun getting ready for Valentine's Day! This project comes from a color challenge at the Create with Connie and Julie blog. This little box is made to hold some sweet hot cocoa and a card but it could easily be altered to hold a get well gift with some soup packets and tea. It is the perfect sized gift for a sweet co-worker or that wonderful nurse that helped you and your family feel better. Or the librarian that always lets you know that your favorite author has a new book out.
This project uses some of the gorgeous paper that is now available in the Occasions Mini Catalog called Sending Love. It has this wonderful glitter built right into it that just really makes the look of it so luxurious. The epoxy brads are just too sweet aren't they? Just the perfect finishing touch for a project. The words on the card a rub-on from the hostess set Lovely Flowers Bundle don't you love free stuff? Right now is the perfect time to get that level three hostess set with having a workshop during Sale-A-Bration. Just give me a call and we can set that up for you. Or if you would like to make this project with a few of your friends call me and we'll get that on the calendar for you! Happy Stamping!

Animal Gifts

Don't you love 3-D items?! They are so much fun to create and give away, people are always so surprised to learn that 'you made that yourself?!' This stamp set is one of the ones you can earn free during Sale-A-Bration called Animal Stories. It has the cutest animals and it can make some sweet baby cards or some more grownup cards. This project also uses the heavy window sheets. Those window sheets make some great projects too. Just wait til you see the butterflies I've made with it! But that's a post for another day. If you would like to make this project (using this stamp set and paper or a different one) just call me and we can set up a private class for you and a few friends! Check out my website to see when my up coming classes are and it has all my contact info too. Happy Stamping!
