February's Stylin' Stampin' Blog Hop

Welcome! I'm so excited to be participating in my first Blog Hop! Plus very blessed to join some of my Stampin' Up! sisters on the Hop!
My first project is a Valentine's card featuring some great new products from the Occasions Mini catalog, and of course, some Sale-A-Bration items. I fell in love with the Cherry Cobbler/Pool Party combination I used for some of my Christmas cards, and it's carrying over into Valentine's for me!

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Pool Party (SAB), Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Stamp set: Outlined Occasions (SAB) 
Punches: Ticket corner and 2 1/2" Circle
Accessories: Pool Party Baker's Twine, Big Shot, Fashionable Hearts Embosslits
Adhesive: Tombow, Glue dots, Stampin' dimensions

When I was brainstorming for a good 3-D Valentine's project, I kept thinking about the paper mailboxes we made in grade school to get all of our Valentine's in. This little mailbox was super simple and so much fun to make! (Wonder if it will give my hubby the hint that I'd like a Valentine???)
Supplies used:
Designer Series Paper: Everyday Enchantment (SAB)
Cardstock: Lucky Limeade (SAB), Naturals White
Accessories: Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack (SAB), Crop-A-Dial, Big Shot, Fashionable Hearts Embosslits, Timeless Type Alphabet Sizzlets
Adhesive: Tombow, Glue dots

I can't believe that January is already over! But I'm loving this weather we've been having lately here in the Heartland!

So many exciting things in Stampin' Up! land. The new Occassions Mini and Sale-A-Bration are both live and in full swing now. Check them out over there to your left. Plus, starting today, you can get a FREE 30-day trial of My Digital Studio Express. This is a great way to try out the software before taking the plunge! You can download it in my online store.

This afternoon I'm finishing up preparations for my first ever Blog Hop. The Hop goes live at 6 am (CST) tomorrow. Come back to check out the fun projects that I've made with some new products, then follow on the journey with 20 of my fellow demonstrators to see their creations too!
