Valentine’s Day Fun

Hey everyone did you miss me?  Sorry it’s been so long wasn’t what I had planed but sometimes life gets in the way.  I’ll explain all of that in a post soon but today I wanted to share with you the cute Valentines we made for my kiddos classes.

Orange Monster Valentine

Pink Monster Valentine

I knew from the minute I saw this stamp set in the occassions catalog that I wanted to use it for valentines and my kids happened to pick the perfect treat to go with it.  I loved how they turned out.  It was really easy I used a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of paper and it’s scored in the center at 5″, 5 1/2″ and 6″.  I then folded it into the center to give it some dimension and room for the sucker.  I used a 1/2″ circle punch on the fold to create the whole for the succor.  Hopefully this photo gives you the idea of what I tried to explain.

Monster Valentine Base

I love that Stampin’ Up! gives me the opportunity to spend time with my kids while creating fun and unique valentines for their friends.  I enjoyed teaching them how to use the new watercolor pencils and watching their faces light up when I showed them the magic of blending the colors with the blender pens.  Just a quick note these are going fast they already sold out of the first shipment and had to put them on back order and they expect to sell out of the rest of them quickly so be sure to get your soon.



Here the fun completed project I hope you think they turned out as cute as I did.  Just a note I used the framelites die from the Paisleys set to cut out the center I found it was easiest to attach my white colored monster first then run it through the big shot.  It cut through both layers with no problem and created the perfect whole for our succors.

Stampin’ Up! Mini Treat Bag Box

Today I want to share with you a project that I’m so excited about.  I absolutely love the new Mini Treat Bag from Stampin’ Up! and I wanted to have a little fun with it.  I’ve heard of others turning it into a box so I decided to give it a try.  It turned out so cute and I used it as my swap during Leadership this last week.  While I was creating all my swaps I decided that I was going to make my first ever Stampin’ With Candice video.  I hope that is will be the first of many.

So first I’m going to share the cute project with you and find a few pictures of putting the project together.  Then I’ll share the video with you and last I’ll share a list of supplies so you can create one yourself.

So I love Valentines and choose that as my team.  The current occasions catalog has so many great Valentines products.

Here’s my video.  Please don’t laugh.  It’s my first one and I’m still learning.  I hope that it will help you to get an idea of how easy this box is to create.  I started taking pictures and decided that the video would be easier.  I hope you enjoy it and if so please like and share it.  Thanks

Just a few quick notes on the front of the Valentines box.

  • Be sure to run your front and back pieces through with the embossing folder before you begin to assemble your box
  • The Love is stamped then cut out with the tag die that came with the treat bag.  I just cut the end off.  Afterwards I covered it in Crystal Effects and let it dry completely before attaching to the front.
  • I used a 1/4 of the Tea Lace Paper Doily and scrunched it to fit the love.
  • The Flower like image is stamped in Rose Coral Colorbox ink on the Chalkboard paper and then cut out with the circle framelits.
  • I used the medium Gray Smoky Slate Blendabilites marker to color on the gold sequines to turn them silver.
  • After forming your heart with the simply pressed clay I sprayed it with Vanilla Shimmer smooch and let dry.  Then I used a needle to thread the bakers twine through it and tied a bow.
  • I used the Banner Punch and went through the top to only punch the edge of the Silver Glimmer paper to create the banner.
  • The Silver Glimmer Paper and the Chevron Ribbon are attached to the back of the Chalkboard Circle.  This is glued onto the box with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.
  • I attached the Tea Lace to the love with Tombow and then attached the love to the Chalkboard Circle with dimensionals.  I also used dimensionals to attach the clay heart.

I really hope you enjoyed this project.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  I’d love to hear your comments.  Also please feel free to share with your friends.  I’d love to see your box creations.  Please feel free to share them on my facebook page.

January 2014 Paper Pumpkin kit

I finally had a few minutes to sit down and play with my January Paper Pumpkin kit.  Can I just say I totally love it.  I had so much fun creating these cards.  I loved that they used non-traditional colors for love cards.

So here’s the ideas that came with the cards.

January 2014 Paper Pumpkin Sample

I think they are really cute, but I wanted to see what else I could come up with.  Of course I have access to lots of great Stampin’ Up! products that would work well with the kit as well.

January 2014 Paper Pumpkin

Here’s a close up on two of my favorites.  I love using the embossing folders from the occasions catalog.

January 2014 Paper Pumpkin Close Up

I also came up with a card of my own.  Using one of the templates I used earlier this month.  I embossed the paper instead of using designer paper.  I love how the arrows just work so nicely on each side.  To add the fun boarder around the heart I just used the ribbon boarder punch and cut it in half.  Then I cut each hole so it would bend easy so I could just glue it on the back and bend as I went.

Paper Pumpkin Love

Last is this fun Valentine box.  I saw something similar on Pinterest and wanted to try my own version.  I thought that the stamps from the Paper Pumpkin kit would look so cute on this.  The box was easy to make I just used a 4 1/4″ x 5 3/8″ piece of paper.  I used the simply scored and scored a 1/2″ on all for sides.  Then I cut the score line on both sides on top and bottom so I could fold it up and make a box.

Monster Love

Remember today is the last day to sign up and get the bonus markers.  Plus it’s the last day to sign up to get the kit this month.  Remember you first kit will contain the products to make these fun cards, but after that each month will be a surprise.

Whole Lot of love cards

Whole Lot of Love promotions ends tomorrow.  Here’s a couple of fun samples I’ve made.  I’d thought I’d share them with you so you can be inspired and grab some up before they are gone.

Monster Valentine Card

I’ve enjoyed playing with some of the fun products featured in the Whole Lot Of Love promotion.  First off is a card I made using the the Monster Valentines.  I bought them for my son to make for his class.  I couldn’t decide between the boy ones and the girls ones so I bought a package of each and figured he could make girls for the girls and boys for the boys.  I also know it means there will be extra’s so I could have a little fun with them.  I think it turned out supper cute.  I’m so in love with the Decorative Dots Embossing folder that you can earn for Free during Sale-a-Bration’s starting on Tuesday.

Follow My Heart Card

The second card features the Follow your Heart stamp set.  The clear is sold out already, but last I heard they still have it available in wood.  This set is so cute, you will want it for sure.  I added some of the fun gold product from the occasions catalog and of course the Decorative Dots Embossing folder.  It’s been fun working with the gold baker’s twine.  It’s a bit thicker than the normal baker’s twine and it’s cream colored instead of white, but love the accent.

So hopefully you’ve been inspired and want to order these before they are gone.  You can order Order online 24/7 use hostess code S4P3TRBA.

Love Banner Card

When I saw the Banner Framelits Dies in the occasions catalog I knew I had to have them.   I was so excited to create with them and I absolutely love them.  I took the idea for this card right out of the catalog.  Can you guess what page it came from?  I know the love is now retired hopefully some of you had the chance to get it before it was gone.  I know I’m glad I did.

Love Banner Card

So even though it’s retired I still wanted to use this fun card in my Stampin’ Buffet this month.  In fact I’ve decided that I might add one card each month using some of my retired stamps or dies just so that we have a chance to use some of these fun products and of course the only way to make them would be to come to my fun event.  Which you’ll want to anyone just because there’s so many cute projects to make.  So be watching for some of my blast from the past cards that will be featured and my monthly Stampin Buffet and maybe other events.
