Follow My Heart - Double Pocket Card

I like the idea of a double pocket card now that we have the fabulous scalloped tag topper punches...pockets are perfect for bookmarks!  The first person I ever saw do a double pocket card was Patty Bennett.  If you google her name & double pocket card, you'll find 2 videos to help you create one of your own.  I've come up with a third version that I won't show here until my next stampin club as I want to share it with the stamp ladies first:)

This card & the bookmars use the Follow My Heart stampset which is only available until Jan 27th.  I've also used the Modern Medley dsp.

Sweetheart Treat Bags - Another Idea!

 This time I folded the Sweetheart treat bag and created a pocket for a gift card as well as a pull out note card.  I used the Tags 4 You stampset for the image on the front of the project and the pull out note card used images from A Fitting Occasion and Follow My Heart.

These treat bags & the Follow My Heart stampset are only available until January 27th, so hurry & get yours!!

Sweetheart Treat Bags!

Above, I paired the sweetheart treat bags with the Follow My Heart stamp set and a paper doily to come up with this sweet design.  The bakers twine & striped banners come with the treatbags and make the pack an incredible value at only $6.95!  But as with the card set and the Follow My Heart stamp set, they are only available through January 27th.
 
Below, here's another treat bag I did with the sweetheart treat bags, a paper doily and this time the stamped image comes from the Perfect Pennants stamp set in the new Occasions catalog.

Follow My Heart - Desk Calendar

I *luv* the Follow My Heart stamp set.  It is only available until January 27th which makes me sad because there are so many things I'd like to do with it with my stampin ladies!

Today I used it to make this desk calendar.  I needed a new one for my desk at work, and so I pulled out my square framelits and made this little frame, then added a printout monthly calendar.  Although the picture doesn't show it well, I used the chalkboard technique with the stamping and I used the new rosette bigz die with the roses.  I also used the new Banner Blast stamp set that you can earn for free once sale-a-bration starts.  The Eiffel tower, though, and the key banner both come from the Follow My Heart stampset:)

Sweet Sayings Cards & Envelopes & Follow My Heart - Make Great Valentines!


The Sweet Sayings card & envelope pack are adorable and at only $7.95 are a great deal.  Here I've paired them with a few stamp images from the Follow My Heart stampset (only $14.95).  Both are only available until January 27th.
 
And if you if you're not looking to make valentines for a boyfriend or husband, why not make them for your friends...below I used the Sweet Sayings cards & envelopes again & the Follow My Heart stampset, but this time I used a 'friend' greet from the Blessings from Heaven stampset...cute & simple:)

1.  TOPPER PUNCHES!!!

I loved both of these from the moment I saw them.  I was going to pre-order just one, but I couldn't decide, so I ordered both and I LOVE them!!!  There is an Angled tag topper & a Scalloped tag topper!!:)  Found on pg 35.

Oh making 3D flowers & roses just got so easy!!  Love it!  Found on pg 32.

That's right, I said bundle...when you bundle you save 15%!  There is both a stamp set and a coordinating Banners set of framelits!!:)  Found on pg 27.

4.  BURLAP & BLOOMS SIMPLY CREATED WREATH KIT

I couldn't resist this, it's time for some spring d├ęcor!   And SU has done all the hard parts...all your supplies are pre-cut!!!:)  Pages 21 & 27.

5.  FRESH PRINTS DESIGNER SERIES PAPER STACK

I love the colour combination so much on this...coastal cabana, crumb cake, real red and whisper white:)  And with 48 sheets featuring 12 different designs, there's lots of creating to be done with this!!.  Found on page 33.

'Real Life' Journal - Happy New Year!!

This is the journal I made with the December Paper Pumpkin kit.  I loved December's kit and I needed to stay rather stationary one day this week with my leg elevated, so I took the opportunity to enjoy creating with Paper Pumpkin during this time.  I decided to make my journal as a place to put my instagram photos from 2013 and journal about things like 'love', 'learning', 'celebrate!' and 'being/doing'...as these seemed to be the themes running through my instagram pics!

Happy New Year to each of you!!!  All the best for 2014!
