I {Heart} Hearts – PPA 26 Anything but a Card

I ‘ve just had time to update my blog because I’ve been busy making projects with all my new stamps and punches from the new mini occasions catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure.  I am having so much fun.  So many ideas!  I will be posting projects made with products from the new mini and the Sale-a-bration brochure.  I will also be featuring the projects at my next workshop.  It will be dedicated to the new SU products and the free items you can earn during Sale-a-bration.  I am so excited!  I live in San Antonio and if you would like to join me on Saturday, January 30 please email me and I will let you know where and when.  I am also entering my two projects below for the PPA 26 Anything But a card challenge.  I am having so much fun creating Valentine and spring projects with my new stash.  I hope to see you at my next workshop and if you can’t attend but would like to place an order please email me me or order online.

The Hugs and Kisses holder can be made any size and it’s super easy.  Just follow the instructions on Monika’s blog (template info below).  I used my new scallop trim punch for the edges then sponged them with Pretty in Pink ink and made a tag by stamping the dot frame heart and ‘for you’ on the patterned paper then cut it out.  I then punched out various hearts withe my punches and adhered them with snail and dimensionals.  Very easy gift idea.

…Just in from now until February 28, 2010, $2 from every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set sold will be donated to the American Red Cross’ Haiti Relief and Development Fund.  I will post more details about this on my next post.

The 3D heart ornament is also a very easy project.  You can make the heart as full as you want by adding more hearts.  The info and step by step instructions are below.
