March Workshop Project #2

Here is another of the cards that can be made at one of my March workshops. I posted one the other day. To see any workshop projects I post, please go to the "Categories" list in the left column, and click "Workshop Projects." If you fall in love with any of them, then you should book a workshop in March. Sale-A-Bration (SAB) is still going on, so it's a great time to have one.

As the hostess, you get all of the projects that I demonstrate at your workshop. I also have scrapbook pages to choose from. When you're the hostess, you get to pick the type of projects that are made...all cards, all scrapbook pages, or both. I demonstrate 4 projects, and everyone makes two. Of course, you get to earn a lot of free stuff, too, based on your workshop sales! You'll also get the Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog, 2009-2010 free (valued @ $10)!

If this sounds like something you, your friends, and family would enjoy (a girls' night out), please CONTACT ME. I'd be happy to do a workshop for you at your home (in Central Indiana, of course!) You'll need to book your March workshop soon, before my calendar fills up!

My Last Valentine Project Until Next Year

I was going through my Valentine's projects, and just realized that I never posted this cute little bag. I had a girls' scout troupe come over to my house last month, and this is what they made. It was a group of young teenagers, and they really had fun making this. They even made a few extra bears! They really got creative with it.

The actual bag was made with the SU! Fancy Favor Bigz XL die. The red front and back of the bag was made with the SU! Top Note Bigz Die. I really like how the handle turned out, too. I made it punching both long sides with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch from the Occasions Mini.

My Hubby's Valentine Card

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day. This is the card that I made and gave my husband yesterday. This is the only time of the year that I use pink on a card for him. LOL I did made the card base with Chocolate Chip card stock to make it a little more masculine. He liked it, and he didn't mind the pink! I used the PPA29 card sketch to make this card, too. I just love this card layout.


I even decorated the inside of the card. I need to do this more often. I really like the inside decorated. Don't forget, the main stamp set I used, I {Heart} Hearts, is the one for the Haitian Relief campaign that Stampin' Up! is doing right now. Every time this set is ordered, $2 goes to the American Red Cross Haitian Relief Fund. The campaign ends on February 28th, so you'll need to hurry to help raise money for the Haitians. To order online anytime, just go to MY DEMO WEBSITE and click "Sh0p Now."

Valentine Birds

This is the last project that will be made at my Valentine's Stamp Camp tonight. I've had this level 3 hostess set for a few months now, so I just had to use it. I think the birds with the hearts in their beaks are cute. The only way to get this set is to host a qualifying workshop. If you would like to host a workshop, just let me know. I'd be happy to do one for you!

This is also the first time I've used my Sweet Pea Stitched Felt. I love these felt pieces, and I know I'm going to use them a lot. I got my first pack free when I became certified for My Digital Studio. I love being a demonstrator! Not only do I get my stuff at a discount, I also earn a lot of stuff free! If this sounds like something you might want to look into, just CONTACT ME. This is a great time to become a demonstrator. There are two starter kits available, and they're both 15% off! Plus, you get to pick out any one stamp set (valued up to $47.95) in the Idea Book & Catalog (excludes hostess sets) to be added to your starter kit for free! You'll need to hurry, though. The discounted starter kits and extra free stamp set ends March 31, 2010.

Border and Corner Punches Video

I'm so excited! I've seen ways to use these punches together, but it was hard to figure out and remember what sizes of card stock work. Stampin' Up! has made a video that explains a much easier way to use the new border and corner punches together. It also explains how to use them by themselves as well. I highly recommend watching this video. I'm going to be using my new border and corner punches together a lot more, now!

Valentine Matchbox

I can't believe this weather. This is the second time that I've had to reschedule my Valentine's Stamp Camp, and both times have been because of snow! It's supposed to start snowing tonight and snow until at least Wednesday morning! I know I've said this before, but I'm ready for Spring! Right now, I'm going to have the camp this Thursday @ 6:30 p.m. To find out more, please go to my events calendar.

This is another project that will be made at this camp. I used the SU! Matchbox Bigz XL die to make this cute box. It's perfect for 2 nugget candy bars and any other small chocolates. As you probably have figured out, I love this border punch and this stamp set. I've used them both a lot already.

The stamp set is the one that Stampin' Up! is using for the Haiti Relief Fund. For every "I {Heart} Hearts" set (Wood or Clear Mount) sold between now and February 28, Stampin' Up! will give $2 to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund. During the first 15 days of this campaign, there have already been 7,524 sets sold. That's $15,048 raised! If you would like to order this stamp set, you can do so by ordering online anytime until February 28.

Scalloped Valentine Bag

This is another project that will be made at my Valentine's Stamp Camp next Tuesday. I got the idea from a Georgia demonstrator, Monika Davis. I used the tutorial she made to make this one. It was really easy and fun to make.


The picture on the right shows what it looks like on the top. The heart was made using the Full Heart Punch, and then layering it on top of a die cut I made with the SU! Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit die. The die makes a perfect mat for the Full Heart punch.

If you would like to know more about this camp, please go to my events calendar.

Mini Twix Candy Bar Holder

Here is one of the candy holders that will be made at my Valentine's Day Stamp Camp. We're supposed to get 4-7 inches of snow Friday night through Saturday here in Central Indiana. I'm going to go ahead and reschedule my Valentine's Stamp Camp to Tuesday, February 9 @ 6:30 p.m. Those that want to attend need to let me know by Sunday, February 7. OF COURSE, WE'LL BE CELEBRATING THE INDIANAPOLIS COLTS SUPER BOWL VICTORY AT THIS STAMP CAMP, TOO! GO COLTS!

One of my swap friends, Shirley Brown, made a candy holder a lot like this one, and I just had to make one myself. She used the same stamp, but I changed the colors and used a Filigree brad instead of a little punched flower.

The pouch starts off with a piece of 2-3/4" x 11" card stock. Then the long side is scored at 4" & 8". The 3" section is the top flap. I inserted the bottom of the pouch into my Large Oval punch as far as I could, centered it, and then punched the oval out. Then I put Sticky Strip on the bottom edge and folded it up and attached it to the top of the middle 4" section. I attached the ribbon onto the center of the top flap. Then I decorated the "love" part and attached it to the flap, over the ribbon. The candy is inserted into the punched-out oval, and then the ribbon is tied to close it. They are very easy to make, and you could make a lot of them very quickly.
