This card uses the Dream a Little level 2 hostess stamp set and the swirly texturz plate from the Backgrounds 1 set.

Happy Valentines Day!


On this special day, I’d like to wish all of you that support me in my Stampin’ Up! business and in other ways in my life, a very special Valentines Day!  Love you all!

Here are a couple sweet Valentines projects for your enjoyment!

This is a favor that I made for my 10 and 5 year old nieces’ class mates.  I used half of a medium size whisper white envelope for the bag in between the two top notes.  Filled it with little mini candy bars. The teachers got one with a gift card enclosed.  The favor was inspired by a Love You Much swap from Kelly Taylor.


This is a cute little Valentines gift filled with yummy candy, given to me by one of my fabulous downline, Brenda Ballesteros!
Thanks Brenda!


This is another favor made by Brenda.  Each gal that came to our Pacific Stampers
montly group meeting received one of these from Brenda!!


This cute favor was made by another one of my fabulous downline, Joni Hirasa.  It’s made using the
Scallop Envelope die and is filled with more yummy candy!  Thanks Joni!!

Happy Valentines Day!!

This cute little purse uses the Good Friends stamp set, the Good Morning Sunshine Designer Series Paper and the On Board So Tweet chipboard!


Inside the purse we have three darling cards and a little box that contains ten tags.  All made using the above materials!  Call or email me if you’d like to order the supplies and instructions for this great project!
