Valentine treats and other Stampin’ Up! stuff

Posted on

Happy Valentine’s Day!

My kids have their parties at school today so of course we made valentines to pass out to everyone.  My daughter Emily made hers from the January Paper Pumpkin.  I had her use a different ribbon because I wanted to hoard keep the ribbon that came with the kit for myself.  Metallic Edge ribbon, yes please! It’s so beautiful!  Here’s the kit and what is looks like according to the directions.  The refill kit is still available for purchase for Paper Pumpkin subscribers.  I think it could be used for any occasion.

Here’s what Emily did with hers.

      

We not only used the stamp set from this Paper Pumpkin but also used the stamp set from last year’s Valentine Paper Pumpkin set. I liked the saying: For an Amazing Friend.  This kit had 16 Valentines in it so we had to use more than one kit.  With the extras, I made gifts for my Awana kids for tonight.  We also altered the Paper Pumpkin box for her Valentine holder at school.

Alex made these easy Valentines for his Kindergarten class.

This morning was super busy packing all our valentine’s and party snacks and doing Emily’s hair.

After I dropped them off at school, I stopped by Duncan Donuts to buy these treats that will be waiting for them (if I don’t eat them first!).  I do not feed my kids donuts before school because I like their teachers and I want their teachers to continue to like me!  LOL

Paper Pumpkin is celebrating it’s 5 year anniversary!  I’m so excited to see the 5 year anniversary box with a FREE gift in it.  When you purchase a 3-month Paper Pumpkin subscription during Sale-A-Bration, you can receive a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!  It’s a win-win!

Starting on the 16th, three new must-have Sale-A-Bration items are coming out. Take a look here.  Here are a few samples I have already:

 

After the 16th, you can get these SAB items for FREE with a $50 or $100 order BUT if you can’t wait to have them, you can purchase them now in a demonstrator kit for $99.  You will receive $125 worth of product of your choice for just $99 in addition to FREE shipping!  You can add the new items in your kit and not have to wait to earn them, but only through the 15th!  Sign up here.

I pray you all have a fantastic Valentine’s Day.  We can’t wait to see what Daddy brings home for all of us!  Didn’t I tell you, Valentine’s Day is all about my expectations! LOL

Keep Crafting!

Jenn

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop

Posted on

 

I’m excited that it’s time once again for the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop!  It runs the first Friday of the month and the projects that you see are from Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all around the globe using a common theme.

This month our theme is: OUR FAVORITE BUNDLE!

I had such a hard time choosing this time around because I have a few favorites right now.  But the one that is most fun to use currently is the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle.  This dragonfly set makes the most beautiful cards and there are so many different ways you can stamp the dragonfly or cut the dies.  Here are a few examples of cards I’ve made using this set:

Tomorrow I am attending OnStage Local here in San Diego and demonstrators from all over are getting sneak peeks of the new Annual Catalog that comes out in June.  I’m so excited to see the new bundles that will be available.  They’ve already given us some peeks at new In-Colors 2017-2019.  Hint: They are in the OnStage letters! SShhhh…

So pretty!  And one suite called Eastern Palace.  Amazing things done with that bundle already!

Don’t forget to sign up for Paper Pumpkin before April 10th to receive the FREE gift Sara has included in this anniversary box!  Sara designed it herself and you won’t want to miss out on all the goodness. Click on the photo below to sign up!  “Bold, vibrant, and artistic—with a little bit of sass,” is how Stampin’ Up! CEO Sara Douglass described the kit she designed for the April Paper Pumpkin.

I hope you get some inspiration from these dragonflies.  Up next is the amazing Marieke Bart with her favorite bundle.  If you need to go back, click previous to see Angélique Stempelkeuken.  Thanks for hopping with us!

Your BFF,
