Catalog CASE - Just Believe

At my last group meeting, I challenged everyone to do a catalog CASE (copy and show everyone). My purpose for this was to show them what a great resource our Stampin' Up! catalog is. This is the card I did to swap with the group. I changed only a few things from the original card (page 97 of the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog) - for example, I paper pierced the outside edges (instead of sewing them).

Amour Valentine Card

Here is the other card that we made in the workshop last week. Each guest left with two finished Valentine's cards. I got the card idea from one I saw at a friend's house that she received in a swap. I did not get a name, so I do not know who to give credit to. But once I saw it, I instantly fell in love with it! Here's my version (I think I only changed the sentiment...)

I did my own thing with the inside. I wanted the workshop guests to have a place to write since the card base was black.

I hope you like this one! I liked it so much that I gave one to my husband for Valentine's Day, too.

Heart Treat Valentine

I had a hostess last week who wanted to do a workshop with each guest leaving with two finished Valentines. She definitely wanted one card to use the Heart Treat cups. Here's what I came up with based on this idea...

Here's the inside...

The closed card is 3X3 plus a little extra for the slider. I love making a slider door, so the recipient can get to the candy without destroying the card. I used DSP that is currently available on the Clearance Rack.

Preschool Valentines

Happy Valentine's Day!

These are the fun Valentines goodies that my daughter and I put together for her preschool class. I thought these cards were pretty cute and they came with the suckers. My daughter colored them and signed her name while I added who they were 'to'. We included a rolled up activity book and a heart shaped crayon.

I got the idea for the heart shaped crayon from the Family Fun magazine a few years ago and I love making them. I always end up with several crayons in my 'mom' purse from different restaurants, so we save them in a baggie and use them for this craft with some silicone molds. I should probably get some different shaped molds to make these for different times of the year!

Hope you all have a great Valentine's Day!!

Free Rub-Ons - Look what I did!

Stampin' Up! sent demonstrators a sample of the Valentine's Rub-ons with the first demonstrator order from Dec-Jan. I wasn't sure what to do with them until I saw these and these using Hand Sanitizer... What a FANTASTIC idea!

So, I made these...

I gave them as a booking incentive at my hostess appreciation event in January. My daughter's preschool teachers will also be getting them in their Valentine's goodie bags.
I got the bottles of Hand Sanitizer at a local grocery store - they were $1 each. Gotta love that! The label on the front was just a sticker that easily peeled off. I'm sure they would look better without the back label, but that one proved to be a little more difficult to remove. I still love the way they turned out! What do you think?

You can order these Rub-Ons from the Occasions Mini Catalog. Click here for more info or to order online.
