More Valentines projects!

Here are a few more cute Valentines projects! You still have time to make something cute for that special someone!

This one's called a "Bag in a Box", and is easier to make than it looks (aren't most things we make?)....

Bag in a Box

This one below is made from the chipboard books in the Occasions Mini Catalogue! Isn't it pretty? 

Heart Shaped box

A fun note card using the new Scallop Trim Corner Punch, and the Heart to Heart Punch!

Note card

And below is an easy "treat triangle" using the 2 Tags Die for the Big Shot! Cut out two of the same tag, and glue the ends together to make the bottom of the triangle. Voila!

Valentines triangle treat

This one was one of our stamp club make & takes in January!

Valentines triangle treat 2

I am placing a Stampin' Up order on Monday, so email me if you need any supplies!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Love Bots Valentines

I had such a great time with the Mom & Me class yesterday making Valentines! Here are some of the projects we've made, using the Love Bots valentines kits.

Love Bots Valentines

You can use the 3"X5" cellophane bags from Stampin' Up, to put some chocolates inside. They fit perfectly (of course!).

Love Bots Valentines 2

Or, you can pierce a hole in the bottom and put a lollipop in there. 

Love bots valentine 3

The kids each got their own personalized name stamp to stamp the back of the Valentines with their name (so much easier on their little fingers!) and then they got to take those home to use on birthday invitations, notes to Grandma, future Valentines and more! So much fun!

Have a great day!

free punch!

Here's a Valentine card I made last week, using the new FREE Scallop Trim Border punch! (item#118402).

You can get this FREE punch right now when you order $65 worth of products from Stampin Up thru the Sale-A-Bration promotion!

Heart Window card

It is made on Pretty in Pink cardstock, with the Tres Chic background stamp (#109258 $23.95). I also used the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set (#117010 $35.95 wood blocks, #118571 $24.95 Clear Blocks) and stamped the hearts in Real Red, and punched them out with the Heart to Heart punch (#113694 $22.95). I noticed it leaves this cute rim of ink around the holes, so I wanted to use this instead of throwing it out!  

Heart Window side

So, I decided to make windows! This card has 2 peek-a-boo windows which I made with the Wide Oval Punch (#112082 $22.95), and the Heart to Heart punch. After I punched them, I placed a piece of clear packing tape over the opening, with the sticky side up, and sprinkled glitter over top!  How much fun is that?!

Heart Window Card closeup colored

I finished off the scallop corners with the NEW Scallop Trim Corner Punch (#118870 $13.95). Then I stamped this sentiment (from the FREE stamp set called Whimsical Words, wood block#118386, clear block #119119) in Real Red, on Whisper White cardstock, and punched it with the Wide Oval punch to match the front. Whether you have the card closed or open, you can still read the sentiment! 

 Hope you like it!


If you'd like to place an order to get some of these items for free, go to and click on Shop Now. Your order will be shipped directly to your door within about a week!
