Otter Silder Boxes

I have one more super cute Valentine treat to share with you today, in case you need a little more inspiration!  I gave out these super cute boxes at my class last Saturday.  Plus they hold yummy Dove chocolate hearts!  The bottom of the box is 3 5/8"x 5" score at 1" on all 4 sides.  Then just cut the tabs and adhere your box.
The part the box slides into is 3"x6" on the long side score at 1", 2 3/4", 3 3/4" and 5 1/2".  Fold on the score lines and adhere together. I used my Stampin' Blends to color my sweet otter and I cut him out using the new Stitched Rectangle Framelits.  So cute!  Shop my online store here.

Hey Love Valentine Box

If you joined me on my Facebook Live yesterday you already saw these ADORABLE little boxes.  Seriously could they be any cuter!  I love them, but I think the alligator is my fave!  I was inspired to make these from a box I made on my blog back in 2009!  Nearly 10 years ago to the day!  You can check out that post here.
The inside opens like a little book and inside it holds 2 Ghiradelli Chocolates! YUM!!  What a sweet treat for anyone!!!

You'll need 3 pieces of cardstock for this box.  One 6"x3" on the 6" side score at 2.5" and 3.5".  Then you'll need 2 pieces that are 4"x2.5" on 3 sides score at .5" and 1" from each side.

 For all the details on how these cute boxes were made check out my video.  While at YouTube subscribe to my channel so you never miss a video! Shop my online store here.

On Saturday I had my Sale-a-Bration Kick Off Class.  This was my first class in my new location and I'm so happy that everything went so well.  I'm looking forward to more classes there and stamping with more of you!  These are the 5 cards that my guests got to make at my class.  I love them all!!!  There are so many amazing products in the new Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs!!!  This first one features that How Sweet It Is Suite.  There's the Sweetest Thing Stamp Set, the Jar Of Sweets Framelits and the How Sweet It is DSP.  This card is soooooo sweet!  I also added some of the Sale-a-Bration Organdy Ribbon in Highland Heather to add some extra pizazz!
Next up is the Hello Cupcake Sale-a-Bration Set.  This card was CASED from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  I love that the greeting separates the icing and the cake.  Sooooo cute!!!!  This is a set you can only get FREE with a $50 order and it's such a fun set!!
Lasting Lily is quickly becoming my favorite stamp in the Sale-a-Bration catalog!  You might remember this card that I shared last week with this set.  This one is similar.  But every card I make with this amazing set makes me love it more and more!!  Plus the greetings are soooo beautiful!  This card also features my favorite new framelits the Stitched Rectangles!!! I can't stop using them.  They're amazing!  
There are so many of my favorite products on this card!  First the Happiness Blooms DSP is pretty amazing!!!!  Then there's the Organdy Sale-a-Bration ribbon, the Lovely Lipstick Sale-a-Bration Foil Cardstock, the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots and finally the Well Said Bundle. This bundle has a greeting for everything you'll every need to say!  It's a 51 piece stamp set plus there's 24 framelits in the Well Written Words!  It's an incredible bundle and one of my favorites!
Finally the last card is so beautiful!  The Butterfly Gala Bundle is another MUST Have!  Not only are the stamps just gorgeous with beautiful greetings but there's a butterfly punch!  I love the Blushing Bride and Merry Merlot color combo on this card!  If you love these cards and are in the Albuquerque, NM area join me at my February class!  We'll be making more amazing cards featuring the best of the Occasions Catalog!  It's gonna be hard for me to narrow that list down!  I hope you can join me!  Email me at to register to attend.

Pink Piece of Cake

The new Piece of Cake Bundle is soooooooo cute!!!  I just love this cake!  I love it even more that there's a coordinating punch to go with it!  I love this 'sweet' card and the colors!  I used Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo and Berry Burst.
I didn't use the punch for this card but it would be equally adorable punched out.  I have a really fun class coming up featuring this bundle.  You won't be making this card but the 4 cards you will make will be just as fun!!!!  For all the details on my Piece of Cake Class (there's 3 different sessions!) check out this blog post.

Lasting Lily

Lasting Lily is one of my favorite Sale-a-bration options. I just love how gorgeous this flower is. This beautiful card came together so quickly and I love the colors. I used Mango Melody for the flowers. The smaller one I stamped off for a lighter shade. For the stems and leaves I used Shaded Spruce, which is quickly becoming my favorite green! I used the Stamparatus to make sure everything was lined up perfectly.   This stamp set is exclusive to Sale-a-bration and only available for a limited time. Don't miss getting this set. Shop my online store here.

Spotlighting with Bloom By Bloom

The Bloom By Bloom set is one of my favorite new bundles in our new Occasions Catalog!  Plus is also my featured bundle and focus for my Class To Go this month.  To learn more about how you can get this month's Class To Go check out this post.  Hurry!  You must order the Class To Go by January 10! This super sweet notecard was so much fun to make and it's just stamps, ink a paper!  This card is not one of the ones you'll make in the Class To go.  I first stamped my flower in Smoky Slate Ink.  I used my Stamparatus to make sure it was perfectly aligned and it makes step 2 sooooo much easier!  On another piece of paper stamp your flower in color, I used Shaded Spruce and Blackberry Bliss.  Nice, rich colors.
I used a 2" Circle Punch to punch out a piece of the colored flower and added to the Smoky Slate one using Dimensionals.  I added a greeting from the new Sale-a-Bration set Lasting Lily and some Wink of Stella to the colored flower.  This card is so pretty!

Botanical Butterfly and MORE Sale-a-Bration Products!

This stunning card features not one, not two but three incredible Sale-a-Bration products!  This card was inspired by my BFF Kim, who made a similar card.  First the Botanical Butterfly DSP is used over and over on this card and it's simply stunning!  The butterflies in the DSP coordinate with our new Butterfly Punch in the Occasions Catalog, it's so easy to punch them and add them to a card! More Sale-a-Bration products used on this card are the new Part Of My Story Stamp Set.  It has some of the BEST greetings!  Finally I added some of the beautiful new Sale-a-Bration ribbon.  You get 5 yards of 5 different colors-25 yards of ribbon FREE!  To learn more about this card or to see me make another one check out my video below!

Mirror Stamping and Happy Tails

The kids are back in school today and I feel like we might finally be returning to our normal routine around here!  We had a LONG winter break and LOTS of snow!  The snow is mostly melted and break is over so let's get back to work!  My card today is a really cute anniversary card, it's the card I gave Dan for our anniversary.  I used the mirror stamping technique for this card.  I hope to have a tutorial soon on mirror stamping so look for that coming up.  I used my Stamparatus and stamped the dog image from the new Happy Tails set onto my silicone mat.  Once the image was stamped on the mat I pressed a piece of paper over it and the reverse image of the dog stamped onto my paper giving me a mirror image.  It's so much fun!

I stamped the dogs in Soft Suede ink on Shimmer White Cardstock then watercolored them with an aqua painter and ink.  For my pups I used Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.  I love that there's a coordinating punch for this set.  The greeting is from the new Well Said set.  I finished the card with new DSP from the Gingham Gala Suite, some Sale-a-Bration ribbon and some new Heart Epoxy Droplits.  You can shop for all these supplies in my online store.
