Thanks for Being Mine

  Thanks for Being Mine
Here is day three of my Valentine projects to help you get creative.  We made this card last week at my Valentine Class.  I just love these cute little banners and they are so easy to create using the new Banner Blast stamp set and coordinating from the Sale-a-Bration brochure.

Thanks a Latte

Coffee Thank YouHere's how I spent my "cold" days off work this week.  The last week of January is Catholic School Week (my day job — I'm the bookkeeper at Marian Central Catholic HS).  Each day we recognize and say a prayer for one of the groups that support the school — Parents Association, Support Staff, Students, etc.  Wednesday was Staff Appreciation, so I made 72 of these cards and we put a Dunkin' Doughnuts gift card inside each one.  I did change the Thanks So Much stamp to Thanks a Latte (I printed that on the computer).  Everyone seemed very pleased with their little treat and I hope they enjoyed the card too — it was fun to make.

Love Ya!!

Love YaWooHoo — today is the first day of February.  Love is in the air.  Now is the time to get your Valentine cards made.  Here's a great card for those that don't want to get too serious about it — have a little fun and be kind of whimsical.  I just love this little monster stamp set — Monstermaniacs.  It's not in a catalog  — this stamp set was designed by a stamper.  Here's a little information on it.

Monstermaniacs, by Doris D., is the second winning stamp set from In With You, our new stamp set design challenge beta program.

In July, art enthusiasts were given the challenge to create a monster themed stamp set. Voters fell in love with her design and voted the set to victory!

Stampin' Up! will be running ongoing contests and would love your participation! Join the fun at http://inwithyou.ideascale.com

How cool is that!!  You could design a stamp set, submit it and have everyone buying your stamp set — LOVE IT!!!
