Valentine's Day Mini Milk Carton

I'm having a Stampin' Up! party at my mom's house with some of her friend's on Feb. 6th. She likes to take advantage of the free stamp sets that she can earn by having a $300 party in the months of Jan., Feb., or March during our Sale-a-bration event. I wanted to do a Valentine's Day project using the Big Shot and the new Mini Milk Carton Die from the new Occasions Mini Catalog. This milk carton looks like a good size in the picture, but it's very small. I just love mini things. I punched two little hearts with the small heart punch from the Occasions Mini Catalog. Next I put a window sheet behind the hearts. I stamped the box randomly with the medium flower in the With all my heart Stamp set in Pretty in Pink ink. The belly band is Very Vanilla & Sending Love Specialty Designer Series paper which has glitter on the flowers. I just love it! I used a 1/2" Library Clip on top to keep it closed. Inside are Mike & Ikes yummy Tropical flavor. If you'd like to come make one of these Mini Milk Cartons and the quilted looking Valentine's Day card from my Stamp Group post send me an email by Wed., Jan. 27th .

Looking for a great Stamp Group in the North West area?

Our wonderful group of ladies is looking for a few new members to join our Technique Stamp Group. We meet on the North West side of town on the 2nd Friday of each month at 6pm until between 8:30 and 9:30pm.  We each take one turn being the hostess at our own home. This includes providing a snack and drink for the group. Each group member agrees to purchase $25 (sub total) from the current catalogs. The hostess for that month gets the hostess benefits which includes a minimnm of $15 of free merchandise & a free stamp set. It may be more depending on how much the party total is and what promotion Stampin' Up is running during that month. I take care of emailing the group when and where we will meet and what needs to be brought if anything more is required other than your own adhesive and scissors. I teach one new technique and one other project. You'll also get a 6x6 technique card with instructions on how to do the project that we did with a picture of the project. It will be in an SU page protector (1 pg protector every other month.) I do mainly cards or a 3-D gift giving project. Everyone is always thrilled with the items that they make. I also do Stamp Camps once a month normally towards the end of the month. These are more detailed and are usually gift giving projects. These are the 2 projects that we made last night at my Technique Stamp Group. If you would like to learn some new techniques to use in your card making or scrapbooking, send me an email at or leave me a comment. If you'd like more project ideas subscribe to my blog.

Scrapbook Pages for Leadership Swap

Here's the double page scrapbook layout that Sandra and I designed for my 12x12 swap that I'm doing at Leadership in Phoenix. I had to do 10 of these so I've been rather busy. I leave this Tuesday. I can't wait to go and come home and share all the fun things that we did.
