Valentine Heart Treat Cup Idea

Hi there!  Here is a fun Valentine Treat idea for you.  We made this treat at my Card Club workshops this month.  It's super easy and cute.  I can see myself making bunch of this with my little guy for his friends.  I just have to wonder how many M & Ms will actually end up in the heart treat cups???  Or I will have to clean his messy face???  It reminds me of my oldest son's first trip to a local strawberry farm......  Yeah, your guess will be right on!  He even had his favorite "WHITE" t-shirts on that day.

Love You Card

Happy Monday!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I had a super busy weekend with two Card Club workshops.  Plus my husband and oldest son hosted a paintball party here all day on Saturday.  It was super cold so I made some homemade chicken noodle soup for them to keep warm.  I'm not sure how many cups of hot cocoa I prepared for them.  They seemed to have fun in spite of the cold weather though.  My guests had a choice of joining the paintball party or making cards but they kindly declined the paintball offer!  I wonder why????  I think my projects were more attractive than paintballs!!!  We had a lot of fun making cards too.

Anyway this is one of the projects we made at our workshops this weekend.  It's a very simple and clean looking card and everybody loved it.  The colors are Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Whisper White.  We used two Embosslits for the hearts.  The Scalloped Heart in Early Espresso is Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslits Die (117332).  The Cherry Cobbler die cut hearts are the new Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die (125596).

Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die (125596  $11.95)

Can you see the small embossed hearts in the background?  We used one of the new Adorning Accents Embossing Folders (125601) to emboss the heart shaped border.   
Adorning Accents Embossing Folders (125601 $8.95, set of 3)

The P. S. I Love You stamp set has been very popular among my customers for this Valentine season.  It's my favorite one too.

Mixed Bunch Card with Blossom Builders Kit

Hi there!  I finally had a chance to finish one of the nine make-and-take projects from the Leadership Conference in San Antonio.  I really had  a great time there.  What a beautiful city!

When I saw the picture of this card in a kit, I didn't get excited (shhhh don't tell Stampin' Up! I said that).  But as I was making the card, I started to re-think about it.  And you know what happened, right?  I LOVED the result!!! 

It is so dimensional and I love the color combination (Lucky Limeade, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, and Very Vanilla). 

I love this new Blossom Builders kit from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  It's so easy to make beautiful flower embellishments for any project!  It comes with 2 sheets (12" x 12") of printed flowers, double-sided, and 1 sheet of Pink rhinestones (exclusive to this kit) to dress up your unique flowers. 

Thank you for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful day!

P.S. I Love You Card

What a beautiful color combination!  Don't you think so?  It's Island Indigo with Blushing Bride and Riding Hood Red.  I love the new Twitterpated Designer Series Paper too. 

This card was the third project we did in my Big Shot workshop this month. We used various products from the Occasions Mini Catalog and my four Big Shot machines were being used non-stop! No kidding!

Do you like the Scallop edge (right above) or the Bracket edge (top)?  The new Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies come with two designs, one scallop and one bracket edge.  We stamped the flower border image along with the Scallop Edgelits Die.  Did you know we have the coordinating embossing folders for the Edgelits Dies?  We used one of the Adorning Accents Embossing Folders for the Bracket Edgelits Die.  Isn't it cool? 

Thank you for stopping by today.  It will be an exciting day for us.  My mother-in-law is coming from Arizona for a few weeks.  Ayden's birthday wish came true!  It's a little late but he will be happy to see her.  Also I sent my hubby to my favorite store (the Container Store) to get some shelving units for my studio.  Can't wait to get more organized.  Anyway I hope you will have a wonderful day!

Petite Pocket Valentine Pouches

Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend.  I'd like to show you these cute Valentine pouches we made in my Big Shot workshop last week.  It's super cute and easy! 

The stamp set we used for this project is one of the brand-new stamps from the Occasions Mini.  The "P.S. I Love You" stamp set is packed with 15 cute stamps and some of them coordinate with our punches!!!  I'm sure my Club gals will be happy to hear that! 

Have you used the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies yet?  This is how we did to make the opening using one of the Framelits Dies.  You can easily see exactly where you are placing the design before you cut.  That's so cool!

I love this Petite Pocket die.  We used the same die to make this Mini Scrapbook in my Scrapbook Club this month too.  It's so versatile!

I have another Big Shot workshop tomorrow at 1 pm and do have some spots available.  Please contact me if you are interested.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful week!
