Valentine Keepsakes and Sweet Little Valentine Card Hand Sanitizer Holder

Hello everyone and welcome back! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Today, I have one more Sweet Valentine Cards and More project for you. In case you didn't see last week's Facebook Friday, I made three 3D Valentine Treat holder using these adorable cards. Today, I've got one more for you. 


This holder is designed for these cute little Hand sanitizers I found at Target, in the Valentine section last week. It's very simple and perfect for mass production!


I used one of therein cards for the printed paper in the back and the front. I also used the inside of the envelope for the front tag! Love that idea! 

Make sure to get the supply list at the bottom or today's blog post after you watch the video. 



And, don't forget, if you want last week's Facebook Friday make and takes for free (including the cards from the kit), you need to make sure your order is in by midnight Monday, Feb. 1.  In order to qualify, your order needs rot be over $35 before shipping and tax and use the Host Code.

First, we'll make a little box that holds Valentine Ding Dong (yummy!) I've used the Stamparatus as well to stamp two of the sides and added two pieces of the Sale A Bration Field & Flower DSP to the other two sides.   



Next, we'll turn one of the cards into a little Valentine Gummy Bear matchbook. I've also used the Always Dies for that beautiful sentiment .



And last, we'll make a Valentine Tic Tac Holder. My daughter loves Tic Tacs, so I've been trying to comeuppance with new ways to hold these easy to find treats.



They have all the products I used and measurements for each project.

Prettiest Birthday Congratulations Card

Hello everyone! Welcome back! Today, I want to share a special card I recently made form y downline Cara. She had a really big promotion to Gold Elite! In the Stampin' Up world, that's a very big deal!! So, I wanted to make kind of an "over the top" card to let her know how happy I was for her.


I started with the new Prettiest Birthday bundle. Yes, it say's it's a birthday set, but it also has a couple of regular celebratory sentiments as well. I stamped the balloons in Staz On on Watercolor Paper and then colored them with my Water painter. I used Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive inks. The base of the card is Mint Macaron. I love these colors together! 

I also colored the white ribbon with my Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blend. Did you know, you could color your ribbons with Blends? Yep, you can! Its a fun way to get a perfectly matched embellishment! And on the inside, I did a couple of layers just to make it all super fancy. I sent it along with a Kendra Scott bracelet, because who doesn't love KS?! I know she enjoyed getting the fun surprise int he mail. Congrats again Cara!! 

This week's Facebook Friday will be all about Valentine Treats! I'm going to show you how to use the Sweet Little Valentine Kit to create several treat holders! (By the way, I had originally said we'd be doing the Forever and Always Bundle, but I've postponed that until later in February because Valentine's Day is sneaking up on us! I'll be live on Facebook at 2:00 CST. I hope you'll join me! 
And this week's Facebook Friday Host Code is J63JYSZN in case you want to put an order in before then. All orders over $35 will earn this week's projects for free!

One Million Dollars Sales Milestone!



Good morning everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I sure did! While driving home from dinner on Saturday night, I found out I had crossed that million dollars in sales threshold! What an incredible feeling! Even though I knew it was coming, it was still such a shock! 

Of course I never would have gotten there with out all of my customers and every single order you have placed. $1,000,000 is A LOT of ink paper and stamps. But I can tell you, I got there one order at a time! I've been a Demonstrator for 11 1/2 years, so as you can see, it took alot of hard work! When I started, I in NO way ever thought I would end up here! It really is incredible! 

So what does it mean? Well, it's a pretty big deal at Stampin' Up. They put out a press release and they wrote an article. Later, I will receive a pretty big bonus, a special trip with my hubby to SLC next spring, a celebration at the next On Stage, and I get to help design my own stamp set! I'm most excited about that last part! I have a list of ideas, but I haven't narrowed it down quite yet. I promise it will be fun and it will represent my stamping style! We won't see it for probably two years. It's quite a long process. 

So, thank you to all of you who put in orders not only in the last 11 years, but especially those of you who put in orders in the last couple of weeks just trying to help me get there. What a fun week! I'm truly blown away by your generosity. 


Ok, with that, I'll leave it by saying if you'd like to earn this Facebook Friday week's make and takes, don't forget to get your order in by tonight at midnight! Please use Host Code MAX7TG6Q.
