Glassine Valentine Goody - SRM Stickers

Hi there, SRM Stickers fans!
I'm up on the SRM Stickers Blog today with a simply splendid Valentine packet using some sweet SRM Stickers products!

I filled the 5.75" x 7.75" Chevron Embossed Glassine Bag with a We've Got Your Border/Valentine sheet of stickers and a few sequins.  To top it off, I added a 6" Red Heart Lace Doily, one of the Large White Punched Pieces with added Labels by the Dozen/Valentine sticker, and a sentiment strip from the Stickers by the Dozen/Valentine sticker sheet.

I think this sweet goody package would make a perfect gift for a crafty friend...and it's full of more surprises...Pretty Pink Posh sequins and confetti!

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage today!
I hope you are inspired to create some Valentine goodies of your own.

SugarPea Designs - Special Delivery

Hi there, Sugar Pea Designs fans!
I'm addicted to this sweet little penguin mail carrier!  Isn't he adorable?!

Happy Mail

 SugarCuts - Notched Heart Journal Card

I stamped Mr. Penguin and the mailbox over a word-printed paper and added a red smooch!  The navy heart notched background and other layers were added for texture and dimension.  The sentiment was stamped off the side, too!

What are your favorite SugarPea Designs from this month's release?

s.w.a.k. - Reverse Confetti

Hello, stamping friends!
I have a smooch-worthy card for you today using fabulous Reverse Confetti goodness!

Valentine's Day is getting closer and closer, so I want to make sure I have PLENTY of love notes to give out this year!

 Seriously fabulous products!  
Reverse Confetti products, whether previously released or brand-new, work together perfectly!  

I started with that bold and beautiful black quick card panel and chose some papers that would coordinate with it and the other stamps and confetti cuts to create this lovey-dovey card!

Carta Bella - Words of Love Card Set

Hello, Carta Bella Paper fans!  I'm up on the Carta Bella Blog today with a trio of love card set using the Words of Love Collection!  

The Words of Love Collection is absolutely breathtaking!  If you have never owned a Carta Bella Collection, you are missing out on its beauty...the colors, images/prints, the textured/heavy weight feel...awesome!  I used to be a 6 x 6 patterned paper girl, but the quality of the full-size collections is the BOMB!

It's a great time to add some Verve goodness to your own stash...a love-themed sale just in time for Valentine's Day!

I used that beautiful sentiment from the Love's Flower stamp set and embellished the card with the Jotted Heart Die, the Award Banner Trim Die and Shine Bright Sequin Mix...all from The Verve Store!
