Just 6 days to Valentine’s Day – are you ready?

Can you believe Valentine’s Day is just 6 days from today? I frosted some sugar cookies I made on Sunday to get me in the spirit. Of course, to save me from too much temptation I sent a batch back to college with my daughter!

If you need some last minute inspiration for your Valentine I’ve got some great swaps to share with you today!

These first three project use the Hey, Valentine stamp set (137135/138570) from the Occasions Catalog and they are very different.

Hey Valentine (1) Hey Valentine (2)

This 3d is made using our Mini Treat Bag Thinlit Die (137547) and can you guess what I filled it with?

Hey Valentine Mini Treat Bag

I found these cute little Reeces  Cups, when you open them they actually have a love note on the cup! How cool is that? You won’t believe how much this little treat bag holds.

And these next cards use our Sweetheart Punch (133786) that is currently on our Weekly Deals – but hurry if you want this punch at a great deal they offer ends tonight at Midnight!

You plus Me

In addition to the Sweetheart Punch this first card uses the You Plus Me stamp set (137133/138594) and the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper stack (137779). And great news if you love them both you can order them in a money saving bundle (138879/138880).

And this fun card has a pop up heart

Groovy Love

It uses the fun Groovy Love stamp set (134243/134246), you’ll find this fun set in the 2014 Annual Catalog and is great for all kinds of occasions.

And this next card not only uses the Sweetheart Punch but the NEW Bow Builder Punch (137414) and the Kinda Eclectic stamp set (135347/135350) .

Kinda Eclectic

And my final card that I’ll be sharing with you uses the latest Paper Pumpkin kit from January along with the Work of Art set (134111/134114). Paper Pumpkin comes with great exclusive stamp sets that can be used on your alternate projects like this one along with the fun project that comes in the kit.

Groovy Love

I’m hoping everyone had a wonderful New Years Day and will find 2015 a healthy, happy,  and prosperous one!

Well my New Years Eve was rather crazy since I had to handle last minute unplanned appointments for follow up tests – so I didn’t get to post the project as planned. Bad news for my plans, but good news for me. LOL

The house was also filled with quite a few young adults who had come to ring in the new year with our children. Some of the gang crashed overnight in my classroom on the floor! Here they are around the breakfast table on New Years Day – It was a very late night but lots of fun and they worked up quiet an appetite the night before. (That is our son, Johnathan on the right.)

New Years Day Party

So instead I’m playing catch up and I’m going to share our project that we made at the Customer Appreciation Day  with you today.

Groovy Love Customer Appreciation Day

This card that I cased uses the Groovy Love stamp set (134243/134246) that you can find in our Annual Catalog (on page 110). The set has some fun trendy images that coordinate with our Sweetheart Punch (133786) so it’s fun and easy to use.

And do you see the Fun Frames Embossing Folder (133727) that we used as a back drop? We simply ran our card stock through the Big Shot without any tabs and then sponged it lightly with Crumb Cake ink to make it pop! Love the technique and the vintage feel of the card.

For my little bow I simply layered the Crochet Trim, Strawberry Slush Baker’s Twine and then pulled a few strands off my Burlap Ribbon and wrapped it around the two and tied my bow. Love this Burlap Ribbon it can be used all kinds of ways!

What do you think? Great for Valentine’s Day or what?
