Have you checked out the cute Valentine Stamp set called Hey Valentine on page 8 of the Occasions Catalog yet? Super cute. I couldn't wait for my grandkids to see this set. I die cut different shapes, Banner, Deco and Circle's using our Framelits. Then I used our Blendabilities to color in just a little of the stamp and added the google eyes. Top that off with a clothes pin and a bit of the Thick Baker's Twine and you have a really cute Valentine.
Here are the other stamps in this set. I saw this idea on someone's blog. If it was you, please let me know so I can link you, (of course, I can't find the blog now that I'm ready to post). I had some extra crayons to add to each of the Valentine's so the person who receives the Valentine can color it. Such a cute idea! The top Pirate one uses Party Pennants die, the fox uses the Note Tag Punch and the Birdie uses one of the framelits from the Mini Treat Bag. I used Blendabilities to color these in too! I actually cased the pink and blue one from the catalog. These use the 1 x 8 cello bags. TIP: take a 7/8" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock, fold it in half long wise and use it as a funnel to get your candy inside the bags. It really helps. I used the Painted Blooms Cotton Twine for each of these treats (page 37 of the Occasions catalog).
Now I am ready to help my grandkids make their Valentine Treats this year.
These are a few of the thank you's I sent out this month. You just can't go wrong with this stamp set, plus its FREE (with a $50 order) I decided to do a little "fussy" cutting. Really it doesn't take long to cut the flowers out and it just gives them a little more "pop", don't you think?
And when you add in a little Gorgeous Grunge you have the perfect card. And I used the Note Cards on page, 194 of the big catalog. You can't beat the price, $5.95 for 20 cards and envelopes.
This is the first time I've used this stamp set and embossing folder. I have so much new stuff its just hard to choose........
I decided that this stamp would be good on its side. Almost like the flowers are laying down on a table, (minus the table....). I colored the tulips with Pink Pirouette Blendabilities, the leaves are colored with Wild Wasabi, both are new colors in the Occasions Catalog.
I layered the tulips on a piece of Typeset dap, both are die cut with the Banner Framelits. Almost forgot, the sentiment is from a past My Paper Pumpkin. I love this sentiment.

Shouldn't all those kids be in school? I can't believe how crowded all the parks are. We saw some cool stuff and did a LOT of walking again today. Oh and we designed and test drove a car. It was pretty fun ride at the end. 0-74 miles an hour in a very short time. Haven't downloaded my bracelet yet to see how many miles we walked. I think I will need a vacation from my vacation......just saying', these feet are tired......tomorrow for sure we are going to see Mickey and the Magic Castle. I just checked my Up band, 17, 939 steps today. No wonder my feet hurt!
I saw this design on Pinterest and really loved it. Plus you just can't go wrong with FREE stamps, and this super cute embossing folder called, Happy Heart.
I also used a little piece of the Stacked with Love dsp and matching Washi Tape.
I embossed the house and heart with White Embossing Powder and punched them both out. Who knew that the "What's Up" Punch could be used for a house? Ok, I secretly thought that, and then SU came up with a "house" stamp.

You've probably wondering why I haven't been posting everyday.......Well this week is Leadership (Thursday night, Friday and Saturday). My husband decided to go with me so we could do a little vacation before leadership. After all, its not like we get to Orlando Florida every year. So we decided to try Universal Studios over the week-end, (insert LOTs of $$$). It was a fun day with my husband's nephew and family. They had to go back home. We needed today to recover from yesterday, so we went for a walk, long walk (7.38 miles and 17,423 steps, yeah!!). Oh, we also went to Ripley's Believe it or Not! The Building looks like its upside down.
Its the weirdest thing.....the inside is pretty normal except for one room. Then tonight we went to a Murder Mystery dinner. So much fun! We had never done anything like that before. So after forking over another $---------, we will be visiting the Magic Kingdom tomorrow, and Epcot on Wednesday. I keep telling my husband, its not like we are coming back any time soon.....Ok, its late here, time for bed!
Last Saturday, Patty Bennett had a virtual meeting so that long distance members could participate in the meeting. We all purchased some items from the Occasions Catalog and then she also sent everyone a package of more items. These are the items we made while online. It was so much fun!
2 cards and a mini box.
We added the Stacked with Love Washi tape around the entire box. And made this tag with the Stacked with Love dap, and the Hello Life Stamp Set.
This is one of the cards we made. Using more of the dsp and the Hello Life stamp set. We also used the Happy Heart Embossing Folder. One of my favorites from the Occasions Catalog.
How cute is this card? So simple too. A strip of dsp, some of the Sale-a-bration Ribbon (FREE with a $50 order). Oh, and don't forget that cute little button.
I can think of so many people I could send this card to.....To a Great Friend. I used Island Indigo and Coastal Cabana for the flowers. These two colors go great together. I decided to do the card base in Island Indigo and then a layer of Coastal Cabana, then stamped on the Whisper White. The sentiment is from the Simply Wonderful Sale-a-bration set. In fact both of these stamp sets are from Sale-a-bration. You know until March 31, 2015 you can get both of these sets for FREE. You can choose one gift from the Sale-a-bration catalog for every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax).
I love this stamp set. Don't the flowers look like I water colored them? And really this is a 10 minute or less card to make. You stamp the leaves, then the flowers. Since its a Photopolymer stamp set you can see exactly where to stamp. And I also love the sentiment. It seemed like I needed a little something, so I added the ribbon stapled to the card.
