Monday

Happy February!


I thought I would start February off right with a long overdue blog post. . .

Hope this month finds you well and happy!

As for me, I find myself in a new (temporary) home, as I sold my house.
Against all odds, although not so very surprising to me. I adore that house, and there had been so much love and happiness there. . .someone was bound to feel it :)

Speaking of love. . .Valentine's day is right around the corner!


This is one of the projects we are making in my Valentine's Day class this coming Saturday. I am so loving these new toys from the Occasions Mini Catalog!

If you don't have one, contact me IMMEDIATELY and we will fix the problem!



My posterboard didn't survive the move, so until I pick up more you get to see my lovely fingernail in the photo :)

However, the background is the original maple woodwork from when this home was built in 1892, so that is a treat! I will share more about the house in another post. . .


This is an easel card.
I am looking forward to showing my girls how to make this easy and showstopping fold!

If you are looking for a way to make it on your own, the tutorial can be found *here*

Wouldn't it be so much more fun to just come and stamp at my house?!?!

I thought so!

Since my husband is working non-stop (still overseas) and rarely has time for personal "surfing", I can share this with you before valentine's day. . .




The sentiment from the Sale-a-Bration set Whimsical Words is so perfect for the situation. For many situations really, but I thought of him as soon as I read it.

Hope you like! And hope you can come Saturday if you are local.
Email me for class details if you are interested-I am limiting the class to 6 people so let me know as soon as you can!

Stamps-Whimsical Words (sab), Well Scripted (occasions mini); Paper-Sending Love Designer Series paper, Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla; Ink-Stazon Jet Black; Other "stuff"-Real Red 5/8in satin, small heart/pinking hearts border/pinking hearts corner/wide oval punches; Heart of Hearts embosslit, big shot, dimensionals

Oh I just LOVE this card!!

I am particularly interested in HOW you lined up the corner punch with the straight punch. I've ruined numerous cards trying to get it right.. What is your secret?? do tell! :o)

thanks!
