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.

Hey, Valentine

Do you need some fun and images for Valentine’s Day? If you do then the Hey, Valentine set (137135/138570) may be just the set for you. Great as a card, note or use as a treat topper over our 1″ x 8″ Cello Bags this set makes things so easy and quick!

Hey, Valentine

Here is a card that I made during my weekend retreat using this set. I just love the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack (137779) for card making since it gives you lots of choices and multiple sheets that are just the perfect size for cards or small treats!

And today, I thought I’d share a personal photo of the view out my window, or lack there of! LOL  Believe it or not their is a beautiful hillside view the fog is hiding.


I don’t know what the weather is doing in your neck of the woods, but here in Clarkesville it’s like pea soup – Thankfully I didn’t need to go out today since visibility is awful – but I do have to say I miss the sunshine. One thing about living in Wisconsin growing up, it may have been very cold, but it seemed like it was always bright in the winter. I guess it was the snow reflecting the light, but then it’s been a long time so maybe it is just my childhood memory isn’t really that accurate. Anyhow – seems like a good day to stamp since I feel like cocooning!
