Love is in the Air!

I haven't been doing too much stamping lately...is it obvious?

For a good 2 full months, Stampin' Up! was put on the back burner. I wanted to enjoy the holidays and not stress about holding events and then January came and went in a blink of an eye! Near the end of January, one of my friends e-mailed me wanting to do a Valentine's 3/$5 card making workshop and I jumped at the chance since I hadn't done anything for so long and was ready to get back into it. We only had a week to prepare, but we had so much fun...especially since most of her friends are my friends and then it made for a fun girls' night out!

Below are the three projects I created for this Valentine's event:

This card uses the Love You Much stamp set along with Sending Love Designer Series Paper found in the new Occasions Mini Catalog. It also uses a new punch that I earned FREE through Sale-A-Bration that is going on NOW! (More to come about that later.) As I told the girls at the workshop, this is an HB Original..meaning I came up with the design myself (not always the case).

This next card uses a combination of the Love You Much set mentioned above and the new I {Heart} Hearts found in the Occasions Mini. I "borrowed" this idea from a friend. Each of the hearts is embossed in white and easily punched out with the Heart to Heart punch. It also uses Sending Love DSP and the Scallop Envelope Bigz Die for the Big Shot. This one took the longest, but I love it!

This last project, I'm not ashamed to admit I took it right out of Stampin' Success, a magazine just for SU! demonstrators. Of course I tweaked a few things here and there to make it "my own". It uses the set Whooo's Your Valentine? Super cute and super fun! It would make great little valentines for classmates...although it would get ripped to shreds pretty quickly, wouldn't it? Maybe all that time wouldn't be worth it? *wink*

Lastly, we are going to be making a card at our next MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) meeting and this is what all the moms will be making. I've measured, cut, stamped, and punched so everything is ready to assemble come this Monday morning.

I love those cards!! I am hoping I can make Valentine themed baby announcements and could get some ideas from your cards- now if I could only go into labor!

I love them all. I'm trying to figure out how I want to make my cards. I have the DSP and I love it.
