Today is the day of love! The day set aside to tell others that we love them.
So today I want to share how much I love each and every one of you! My Customers My Followers My Demonstrator Friends And most of all, My Team – My Happy Heart Stampers! Thank you for your support!
The panda card I’m sharing is actually the card I sent to my almost 1 year old grandson, Lucas! I just adore my sweet little munchkin! He’s just the cutest and smartest almost 1 year old in the whole world…I’m sure of it! They say he looks and takes after his grandma! lol

You’re a paper crafter! You want to give a few handmade cards for Valentine’s Day but you just haven’t gotten around to making them yet! Does that sound familiar? Well today I want to share a quick and simple card you can whip up later today and give to a few special people tomorrow.
I used the Sure Do Love You stamp set from the Occasions catalog and the beautiful Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. And even though the paper is gorgeous with all the gold foil it’s still a card you can give to your hubby.
The great thing about this card is that not only is it a quick card to put together but you could use any heart dies or punches you may have on hand. Pair the 3 hearts with a sweet sentiment of love and voila…you are ready to wish someone a happy Valentine’s Day.
Take a look at the paper one more time! If it’s not in your stash you’ll want to order it for sure. You’ll find lots of uses for different occasions. The only problem will be actually cutting it. With the colorful design and awesome gold foil you will be tempted to save it forever! 🙂

Hey! Busy day at my house today. Lots of bustling around as I prepare for my Happy Heart Stampers team Christmas party. It’s tomorrow which only gives me about a day and a half and I still have to decorate the Christmas tree! I did put together the little gifts I have for them. I’ll have to show you those soon. So today’s post…short and sweet!
I wanted to share one of the make and takes we got to make at the Stampin’ Up! convention (Onstage) in November. I love everything about going to convention…all the new things I learn and being with a couple thousand of my closest friends. My husband always reminds me that they aren’t ALL my friends but I tell him it feels like it because they all love to do what I love to do…play with pretty paper and ink and share! And, this is only one of the projects we got to make using the new products that will be in the Occasions Catalog come January 3!
I love birds and this cute little one looks as if you just brush stroked him on your paper, as does the sentiments in this beautiful stamp set. And wait until you see the flowers! They are gorgeous and give you the opportunity to do some coloring if you would like.
Next take a look at the paper. It’s handpainted watercolor designs in shades of black and white…that you can add color to if you would like. And yes…I like!! You can customize all the pretty paper in this pack with your favorite coloring techniques.
The New 1/4″ Whisper White Organza Ribbon is so beautiful in person. A delicate see through ribbon with the whisper white edges. I know that I will be using lots of this ribbon in future projects. So versatile in it’s style and how can you go wrong with white!
The embellishments that go with this set are lots of fun. You will have both flowers like in my sample and then there are the leaves that were all gone by the time I sat down to the make and take table. yes, they were super popular!
All of these products are new in the Occasions Catalog that will go live to customers on January 3, 2018. But, if you would like to get your hands on the new products early guess what? You can!
