Happy Valentine’s Day

I hope each of you have a wonderful day celebrating this special day with loved ones.  I hope you find a way to show love to others around you.  You don’t need a spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend to celebrate LOVE!  Friendships, children, sorority sisters, college roommates, and my wonderful church family………these are relationships that come to my mind today.   And ultimately, the love that God shows me each and every day is the love that…

“Love You Lots” Treat Bag

Just a little treat bag today…..using non-traditional Valentine colors.  You have to branch out now and then, huh?  I love Stampin’ Up!’s new Glassine Envelopes.  This one is filled with Dove chocolates, but they are PERFECT for some home baked cookies!  The baker in me is excited about that! Mark your calendars for my next SATURDAY STAMP CAMP on February 25th at 10:00 am at my house.  The theme will be “BIRTHDAYS” and we will…

Valentine’s Day Card #7

Stampin’ Up! bundles make my work so easy!  This card features the Sending Love Bundle.  Nothing fancy here…..just some stamps, ink and paper.  The coordinating framelits give my creative juices a brain break — they do all the work for me! I’m headed to Alabama today to see the kids!  I couldn’t be more excited!  The Air Force delayed Ben and Lindsey’s move until April, so I’m getting to stay at their cute little house…

Valentine’s Day Card #4

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!  If you haven’t made valentines for all of your loved ones, consider this some additional inspiration……straight from my Pinterest board!  I am a super busy lady (aren’t we all) and I am constantly crafting based on what I found on Pinterest!  I seriously don’t know what I did before Pinterest!  How about you?  And the beautiful heart edge?  I can’t believe how pretty this turns out on the…

Valentine’s Day Card #3

This pretty little card was inspired by one similar on Pinterest.   I was immediately drawn to the soft pink color and feminine details.  I added an embossed border using a retired folder called HAPPY HEARTS.  Way back when these were on the clearance rack, I purchased two of them so that I could cut one of them up and use just a few rows of it.  I also have a polka dotted one and I…

Valentine’s Day Card #2

How about a little love from our hedgehogs?  I love these little guys!  I have greatly enjoyed the Stitched Shapes Framelits that Stampin’ Up! introduced recently.  They have been out of stock, but they are now available once again.  The set includes circles, shapes, and squares!  I love the look of stitching around the edges — but then again, that won’t surprise any of you that know me well!  This card also uses Whisper White…

Valentine’s Day Card #1

This is a simple little card, with alot of punch!  (pun intended!)  The only little problem with this card is that I used a couple of Retired Items……oops!  The Hexagon Embossing Folder shown here has been “replaced” with an all new and improved folder that is in the new Occasions Catalog.  I just haven’t purchased it yet, and I wanted to make this card that I found on Pinterest.  The tiny heart punch is one…
