Soaring Love

My husband is a pilot, so when I saw the set, "Sky is the Limit" in the 2016 Sale-A-Bration catalog, there was NO WAY I would let this one pass!  There are two catches with this set: 1- you MUST get this one before February 15, 2016 AND 2- it is a Sale-A-Bration set, so it's FREE with a $50 purchase.

A $50 purchase isn't hard when you look at page 38 and 39 of the 2016 Occasions catalog which has products that would perfectly compliment this stamp set!  The Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack is great!

Since the theme of January's Stamp Class was Valentine's Day, we made a cute airplane card that would be great for your significant other or even for that little boy in your life...

Bloomin' Love

For January's Stamp Class, we focused on Valentine's Day.  I love the delicate floral heart the Bloom' Heart Thinlit Die creates.  When paired with the Bloomin' Love stamp set, you can create delicate and beautiful card that is perfect for that special someone.  It would also be just gorgeous on a wedding card, too!

The Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Pack has some adorable patterns and would be a great addition to your Valentine's Day cards!

In this Valentine's Day card, I used all three of the products I mentioned above.  I created two versions of the same card by layering the two hearts I die-cut oppositely.  One, the Rose Red heart is on top and the other card, the Whisper White heart is on top.

You'll also notice that I punched the corners of each card with different sides of the Curvy Corner Trio Punch.  Which one is YOUR favorite?

Grizzly Love

My daughter attends the University of Montana and their mascot is a Grizzly Bear.  When I saw this set, I just HAD TO HAVE IT!  :)  For January's Stamp Class, we are working on Valentine's Day cards...  We must think ahead a month to prepare, right?  

The "Bear Hugs" stamp set has a coordinating Framelit Die called "Bear Hugs" as well.  This makes it a cinch to cut out these little guys and their coordinating accessories.  And using the Magnetic Platform, it makes it easy to line them up and run a few pieces through at a time.  

You can purchase this Bundle at a 15% savings for $48.25 for a wood-mounted set or $41.50 for the clear-mounted set.  During Sale-A-Bration, just a little extra added to your order... Like some cardstock or some adhesive and dimensionals, you'll push your total above $50 and you'll have the opportunity to choose an item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog for FREE!

Once you have cut out your large bear, stamp the back side of the bear (it's symmetrical) and you'll be able to fold over the arms to create an actual BEAR HUG!  :)

Imagine the cute creations you could come up with using this stamp set and Thinlits...

Kids' birthday party favors... Valentine's Day gifts... Halloween/Christmas gifts... Etc...

I played with the stamp set and thinlits yesterday and made a simple, but cute, elephant using Smokey Slate cardstock and a Basic Gray Stampin' Pad... I could have added more to my little elephant, but really I was just playing around and having fun.  

As an added bonus, if you were to order the Bundle (Pyramid Pals Thinlits Dies and Playful Pals stamp set), item #141069 for $59.50 (a 15% savings when purchased together), you would also receive an item from our 2016 Sale-A-Bration catalog for FREE!  WIN!
