Season of Love

Should love be in season all year long? I think so! Especially since my last name is SpendLOVE (I’m pretty lucky in the name department…and he thinks I only married him for his car, pshaw…)

So this LOVE-ly card could be a Valentine, a bright Springtime wedding or just because you need to spread the love and was created with one of Stampin’ Up!’s new Photopolymer stamp sets called Snuggles and Smooches and the 2013-2015 In-Colors. Click on the photo for a printable .pdf tutorial!

Did you know that for each $50 product you purchase from my Stampin’ Store you can choose a Sale-a-Bration product FREE? And one of the choices is the Blendabitilies Markers from the catalog! Since I used the Coastal Cabana Markers to color the glimmer heart on this card, you could choose those as your Sale-a-Bration reward when you place your order: Use code 139923 to get them free.

Love Your Mailbox

If I could crochet, I’d make one of these for my mailbox:
“WHY?” you may ask…we’ll let me tell you:

Once a month I go to my mailbox and it gives me a beautiful RED BOX like this: 
https://mypaperpumpkin.com?demoid=810
And inside this box is a magical creative escape!

I’ve told you about My Paper Pumpkin before, and you may be thinking “But you are always making something crafty…what’s so special about this box?” and the answer is: “But I don’t have to cut any paper or come up with a new idea…I just open the box and create something that is prepared for me!”

And that’s why I want to thank my mailbox. I think it should know how much I love it.

If you want to love YOUR mailbox as much as mine (but don’t want to crochet a blanket for it), then you can subscribe to My Paper Pumpkin, too: https://mypaperpumpkin.com?demoid=810

Love Isn’t Love ’til You Give It Away (+Blog Candy)

It has been a joy to swap sampler squares with my downline and in my stamp clubs and last month we made Valentine squares! Remember as a kid when you said, “I just love that!” and your friends would say, “Then why don’t you marry it?!”…I love this one almost enough to marry it, but I’m already taken 🙂

I especially love how everyone does something different with their squares (thanks to Heather B, Pam C and Shelly S for sharing a smattering of samplers!)

Would you like to gather your friends together for Sampler Swap? I’d be happy to teach you how! 
Since “Love Isn’t Love ’til You Give It Away”, I’ve got a little love to share: I have a few extra Valentine Squares to share with someone who comments below by February 9, 2014! Make sure to check back on Monday, Feb. 10 to see if you’ve won 🙂

UPDATE 2/11/14: Congrats Meredith! You are the winner! Check your inbox 🙂
