More Valentine's

Hi Stampers,

Thanks for stopping by today. . . I'd like to share with you the Valentine's cards I made for Blake and Callie Ann.

Keeping with Blake's "alien theme" I used the Greeting Earthlings stamp set.

And for Callie Ann's card I wanted it a little more girlish.

I even added a few pearls on the heart.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Blake's Valentine and Valentine's Day Box!

Hi Stampers and Happy Valentine's day!

Today I'd like to share with you Blake's Valentine's Day Cards and the box we made for his party at preschool.  Unfortunately, Blake is home sick today and can't go to his party.  But the good news is Blake took his box to school on Friday so his friends can put cards into it.

For his box we used the Big Shot and Build-a-bear die as well letters for Blake's name. The Heart Punch was used with the same glitter paper we used on Callie Ann's Valentine's.  Oh we also use the motorcross stamp to make it a little more boyish!

For Blake's cards we used the same heart punch and glitter paper. . . here is a closeup of the heart. See the glitter?

Blake's Valentine's were very easy to make as I used the same layout as this card.  The stamp set is Greeting's Earthlings and the plastic hearts are from SU too!

We used two of the aliens and boy were they fun to cut out. :o) 

So that the kids didn't have to rip the card apart to get the M&Ms out I made a little "window" in the back so they could just pull the paper and get the candy.  

Let me know if you have any questions and THANKS for stopping by today!


p.s. Check back tomorrow for pictures of the cards I gave the kiddos.

Callie Ann's Valentine Cards

Hi Stampers,

Today I'd like to share with you the Valentine cards I made for Callie Ann's Valentine party at daycare.  But before I do that I'd like to share a picture of my sweet Callie Ann.  When Blake was a baby he loved to play in the Stampin' Up! boxes, so I thought it was about time Callie Ann tested them out. . . well it lasted a short time, and then she crawled out. :o)

For Callie Ann's the cards I decided to use the Build-a-bear stamp set, and I had to use pink, so I went with Melon Mambo!

Making the glitter hearts was a piece of cake, because all I did was use a punch to cut out hearts from the Glimmer Paper, which you can find in the mini catalog.  This is the BEST way to add red glitter to your projects without the clean-up!  Cover-weight paper covered in glitter that will not brush off or create a mess.  You get two 12x12 sheets for $3.95.

 Now that Callie Ann's are done it's time to get started on Blake's Valentines.

Thanks for stopping by!

p.s. Thursday card club is TONIGHT!

break time

Hi Stampers,

I'm so very sad to be writing this post. . . if you've followed my blog I'm sure you've noticed the lack of posts.  Ever since I had my second child I have found it very hard to pull myself away and get to the stamp room.  Since I'm not stamping very much I have not had much to share on my blog.  This has really stressed me out and even made me sad.

I've decided to step back from blogging on a regular schedule.  I still hope to blog now and then and I'm sure once Callie Ann gets a little older (and stops nursing) I won't be as tied down.

Please note I am still an active Stampin' Up! demo and I am still having clubs and workshops.  I hope to add make and takes classes into my lineup soon.

As I do still want to share with you via blogging I would like to invite you to become a fan of my facebook page.  When I do post on my blog I'll send a message though facebook so you can check it out.

Thanks for your support!


BTW - Tuesday & Thursday's card clubs are THIS WEEK!
