Valentine's Projects for My Boys' Classmates & Teachers

These were nice and easy and fast to make.  I had Shane sign all his Valentines and I stapled them all together.  Who doesn't like conversation hearts?

I had Ryan do the same thing for his classmates and teacher.  Sign them all.  Of course he has more kids in his class.  Dave couldn't wait til they were done so he could have any candy that was left over!  He made short work of them.

February Club Projects

I love butterflies!  One of the ladies at my weekly Wednesday class was giving me a hard time.  I told her to watch it or else all the cards would have butterflies....teehee.

This has been the favorite of most.  I love the Mixed Bunch stamp set in the new Occasion Mini.  And having a matching punch is just an added bonus.  I embossed all 3 flower stamps with red craft in and clear embossing powder.  The ribbon was a challenge for me.  I didn't have and 1/4" grosgrain *gasp* I know!  So I did have some retired 5/8" polka dotted ribbon which I laid a piece of sticky strip down the middle of the polka dotted side and folded in the seams to make the ribbon.  It had to be red.  No other color would do!  haha.  Funny how we get our minds set on something.

I saw this look somewhere where they had pieced all the designer paper together and then ran it through the Big Shot with the embossing folder.  I LOVE it!  It looks like a nice soft quilt.

Wanted a nice simple male/female any occasion kind of card.  So for this card there was no sentiment.  Ladies could choose one for the inside if they wanted but most left it blank.  They like the idea of having a card in a pinch.  I can't get enough of the Mocha Morning DSP.  I will have to stock up before June!  I wish they would keep it!

January Club Projects

Wow, where has the time gone?  Bad demonstrator!  I must confess though, Dave's mom has been in the hospital since January 3rd and Dave himself was quite sick over the holidays.  I have been working part time at the clinic and you know, everyday stuff on top of that.  Not to make excuses.  So here are the projects for January.  I am going to post February too!  And with any luck get back on track.  So here goes it.  Let me know what you think!

I always try and make sure the girls and I are prepared for our Valentine's well in advance.

I LOVE the new labels dies from Stampin' Up!  I uses shimmer paint on the embossed background and embossed the Apothecary Stamp in Pewter embossing powder and colored with my markers.

Had to try out my new Sale-A-Bration goodies.  The Ribbon and designer paper are FREE items I earned.  The scallop edge is also a new edgelit that Stampin' Up! has come out with.

Celebrate is part of a new Sale-A-Bration stamp set you can earn for free with any $60 purchase.  You can never have too many sentiments in my book.

Nice simple card.  It was all about the paper for me.  I love the new ruffled satin ribbon available in the new Occasion Mini.  The stamp set with the Happy Birthday and flourish frame is a Sale-A-Bration set that can also be earned for free with any $60 purchase.  So much to choose from this year.
