Happy Valentine's Day!!Good Morning! The start of another week means I am that much closer to the end of this semester and that much closer to finishing school. I know it has only been 2 semesters but I miss the way things used to be, no stress about school or homework....being able to spend time together as a family, it is so rare these days and it makes me sad being my lil ones are getting old enough to play games. Oh well 2 years of sacrifices to forever change our future is worth it. :-)
Today I have a BUNCH of projects to share with you, I have 4 cards from Julie, using February's kit. I also have a card that I made for The Paper Variety challenge as well as the Valentine's that I made for Nicki's friends. I feel so sad I didn't get to make more. Next year I will be resting up for the following year when my kids start school. YIKES when they are all in school I will have to make upwards of 100 Valentine's. I seriously can't wait, I LOVE IT!!!
Ok so here are the FABULOUS cards that Julie made
Julie truly did an amazing job this month and I am greatly appreciative that she was Guest Designer. I will have one more LO from Julie that will be posted on February 24th.
Next up I have a card that I made for The Paper Variety, the challenge was to incorporate or use a cupcake on your project. I found this cute Happy Birthday SVG file on SVGcuts.com and I thought it would work perfect.
I also used the Cupcake Love collection from Little Yellow Bicycle from January's kit(which is sold out). I used some Micro Mini alphas from Basic Grey on the banner. I used some bling on the cupcake which is from Memory Box, I think I got it from my secret Santa sister, the swap I participated in on the Sketches4all forum.
Next I have some Valentine's treat bags that I made for my daughters friends. She only wanted me to make 10. Here are some pictures.
Aren't they cute? I had so much fun making those! I also got the lil monsters from SVGcuts.com. The talk bubbles were pre-loaded in my SCAL program. The pattern paper is from Cosmo Crickets DeLovely collection. I know not your typical Valentine's colors but they were pink and pretty and that is what I was going for. :-)
Can you believe I didn't have any Happy Valentine's Day stamps, so when I ran out to Joann's to get some jiggly eyes I also picked up a wood mounted stamp set from Inkadinkadoo. It had all kinds of holiday sentiments and it was half off. So it was like $5.
I sponged the edges of the pink talk bubbles with Rose Bud dye ink from Memento and also stamped the sentiment in the same color. For the blue colored talk bubbles I sponged the edges with Broken China Distress ink as well as stamped the sentiment.
I just think they are so cute!!!
Anywho, since this post is so long already I think I will wait until tomorrow to announce the giveaway. I am not sure how long it will last so be sure to check back in the morning. I haven't decided if I should make it only a 24hr giveaway or a little longer. So either way make sure you check back in the morning. I will actually have 2 giveaways this week (I think).
Did anyone see the pics of the wreath that Cosmo Cricket had in their booth at CHA? If so do you know if there is a tutorial for making that or something like it? I really want to make a wreath similar to that and would like to see or read about how they did it. Before I start cutting and pasting I would like to have a visual of how it's done. LOL!
Be sure to stop by Julie's blog for full details about her cards! :-)
