Anything Goes…. so why not Valentines.

Last month I was a Guest Designer at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog and this month I join the Design Team for a 4 month term.

I am so looking forward to being part of the team. I really enjoyed creating as a Guest Designer so know I’ll have just as much fun, if not more creating as a DT member.

I’ve already started posting more regularly (granted for those of you that follow for SU creations there hasn’t been a lot but that will change too) and it’s only going to get better.

Onto our challenge…..

Our first challenge for 2014 at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog is

Anything Goes.

Our sponsor for this challenge is

The Cutting Cafe

so I have chosen to create a Valentines Card & Gift using 2 of their files.

I know it’s a little early but it will be here before we know it and at least I’ll be prepared.

I’ve used the lovely Bo Bunny Love Letters DSP on my creations.

A little bit of card, a sentiment cut on my Silhouette Cameo, some ribbon, bling and of course some chocolates.

The Cutting Cafe files I’ve used are Heart Shaped Cards Set 2 and the Heart Goodie Bag Holder.

Here’s some more photos ….

The card.

I’ve added some bling around the edges of the hearts for a little more definition and to jazz it up a little as I was keeping it reasonably simple.

And the Treat Bag.

Love the heart cut out on the front of this bag.

I haven’t used an image on these creations as I wanted the gorgeous paper to stand out. I love how these turned out and hope hubby does too.

Card: Cherry Cobbler & Very Vanilla (SU), Love Letters DSP (Bo Bunny)
Accessories: Silhouette Cameo, Rhinestones, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding (SU)

I’d love for you to leave me a comment and let me know what you think and don’t forget to stop by Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the DT have created.

A Whole Lot Of Love…..

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be just for our partners it’s a chance to say “I Love You” to all of those around us.

This year Stampin’ Up! have released an exclusive range of products just for this occasion.

These items are available only from 1st December – 27th January (or while stocks last).

Don’t miss out, orders yours now!!

Click here to go straight to them in my Online Shop.

These projects would be great to complete over the Christmas/School Holiday break and even fun to do with the children.

I’ve ordered mine…..

Family Valentines

I haven’t had much time to create today as I’ve had to clean house unfortunately. Once that was done I then needed to duck out to the Post Office and send out the Blog Candy to the winner (it’s on it’s way Heather) and then I needed to go buy my hubby’s birthday present for tomorrow. After all that was done I’ve managed to just scrap in some crafting time to put together a little Valentine’s gift for my 4 girls and a little something for hubby.

Here’s what our girls came home to after school. I’d placed them in their bedrooms on their bedside tables.

For hubby I just made up a little nugget tin with some Toffees and Chocolate Hearts.

The little tags are all the same. I’ve stamped the Heart stems from the Love Defined stamp set in Pink Pirouette, then stamped the Love You much from Well Scripted on the bottom. The red hearts (and the blue ones in the nugget tin) are chocolates that I purchased from Darrell Lea.

Just  a little something small for everyone.

I received a Valentines Toblerone Chocolate this morning along with some scratchies. Unfortunately nothing to report on those……lol

Now I have the rest of the afternoon and the evening to create so hopefully I’ll have another post later.

Till next time….
