Hey Love Sweet Cup- Otter Valentine (Facebook Live!)

Hello everyone! Today, I'll be live over at PinkBuckaroo Designs Facebook Page  at 2:00 CST. I've deemed this week as Valentine Treats Week and I'm going to show you lots of projects you can create for Valentine's Day (only a month away!) I've got four untraditional  Valentine treats. 

If you can't catch me live, I'll upload the recording here and over on Youtube tonight. 

So this week, I am using the Hey Love stamp set. It's. So. Cute!!!

I've got one project for each little critter. I spent alot of time searching for the perfect gift or treat to go with each one!! I think you're going to like them! 

Today's treat features the Otter. Now, I will tell you, finding a treat to go with an otter wasn't easy. I kept asking myself "What do Otters eat!?!?" I ended up using Swedish Fish. Easy to find anywhere and hey, Otters eat fish... right? 

I used the fun Sweet Cups and used some of the elements from the Lakeside framelits and the Under the Sea Framelits to create the little lake scene. I added a strip of Wood Textures DSP and cut the fish from the Lovely Lipstick Foil Paper. I also added some Balmy Blue ribbon from the Sale A bration Organdy Ribbon Pack

 I even added some elements along the side of the cup. I'll show you in my video how to cut your Tranquil Textures DSP perfectly to fit. 

And, for those of you who don't do 3D projects, how about a card!! 

If you'd like to order any of these projects, make sure to use Host Code  ZTAPS4GU. I'll send Friday's make and takes to anyone who places a minimum $30 order by Monday at midnight for FREE!! 

You can find the complete list of supplies below. Don't forget to join me on Friday at 2:00 on Pink Buckaroo Stampers Group for three more Hey Love projects!

January Stamp Club To Go- Meant To Be

Hello everyone! Today I'd like to share this month's Stamp Club To Go scrapbook page and alternate card! I chose to make it all Valentine's day- of course! Featured are the Meant to Be Bundle along with the Woodgrain and All My Love DSP. 

In case you aren't familiar with my Stamp Club To Go program, each month, in exchange for their monthly order, I send my members three projects. a card, a 3D item and a scrapbook page, or alternate card for those who don't scrapbook. 

The scrapbook page used lots of the heart die cuts in Whisper White, Lovely Lipstick Foil and woodgrain DSP. I also included a Heart Epoxy Sticker and a Lovely Lipstick Grosgrain Ribbon bow. 

And the alternate card looks almost identical to the bottom square on the page. I changed it just a bit. It has a different sentiment and it also has a bow made from the Stitched Lovely Lipstick ribbon in the Meant to Be ribbon combo. 

As I mentioned, this card was for my Stamp Club To Go program. It's a 6 month program where I send you three complete projects each month (like the one above) and in turn you place an order each month.
 One month, you receive Stamping' Rewards! 
I am starting a new group in February!  
If you are interested in Stamp Club to Go, you can find the details here

Deadline is January 16th.

New Stampin' Up Kits- My Review

Hello everyone! Yesterday, I reviewed all of Stampin' Up's new kits on Facebook. If you didn't get a chance to catch it, you can see the recording here: 

I love all of the kits in the catalog! My favorite has to be the Incredible like You Project Kit

This kit includes all the pieces to the cards you see above as well as a storage box. You will need the Incredible Like you stamp set and Lovely Lipstick and Coastal Cabana Ink. 

When you're done with your kit, you'll have the stamp set to create other beautiful cards. I really like this stamp set and can see using it quite a bit in the spring. Here, I used it with Night of Navy and Petal Pink to create a fun card. 

Other kits offered in the Occasions Catalog are the Made to Bloom Kit...
This one creates 12 cards and is all inclusive which means it includes the stamp set and ink! All you'll need is scissors. It also includes a beautiful storage box. 

Also, you'll find the Cute Crew Punch Box

This kit comes in this beautiful tin, it includes a really fun stamp set, a punch, four watercolor pencils and a clear block! It does not include materials to make any projects. 

But, there are some great ideas you can find online to make adorable projects with the tools inside the kit. 

Next is the Precious Parcel kit found in the Sale A Bration catalog. It's actually FREE with a $50 order! So, if you buy two of the kits above, you can choose this one for free!

Last, I talked about Paper Pumpkin. This month's paper pumpkin kit is a Valentine project kit that coordinates with the Animal Expedition suite in the annual catalog. 

It combines everything you love about Paper Pumpkin-style treat packaging with adorable critter coordination in the popular Animal Expedition Kit! Paper Pumpkin can be purchased as a monthly subscription for $19.99 a month. You can cancel anytime, there is not commitment required. You can subscribe here. 

You can also purchase Paper Pumpkin as a prepaid subscription. You can choose 1 month, 3 months, 6 months or 12months. If you choose the latter three, you'll also get Sale A Bration items for FREE!! 
Deadline to get the January kit is January 10th.

Make sure you join me o Friday for another Facebook Live. I'll be making three projects with the Hello Cupcake stamp set from the Sale A Bration catalog! Hope to see you then!

As I mentioned before, I sent a calendar to all my customers who have ordered in the last 6 months from my Stampin' Up store. I make them in batches of 50, changing the design after I've made one set to help with the monotony of making 300 calendars! These cuties were made with the Piece of Cake Bundle and the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper. 

 Lemon Lime Twist

Grapefruit Grove

Daffodil Delight

Highland Heather

Balmy Blue

You can see the other designs by scrolling through these posts. 

This week, my product of the week is the Sale A Bration set called Hello Cupcake. 

I will be featuring it on Friday for Facebook Friday
