Sealed With Love, Love Notes Pouch

This little project was actually inspired by my husband, he has often joked about us not buying gifts but making promises and requests to each other. His favourite request being a home cooked roast lamb dinner, this happens very rarely as I hate the smell of cooking lamb.

Anyway I decided to produce something I could write these little promises on as a gift for Valentine’s Day. This little pouch was very quick to make and could be embellished any way you like. Continue reading “Sealed With Love, Love Notes Pouch”

“Hearts & Kisses” 3 in a Row Games using the Sealed With Love Stamp Set

Today is the first in my new week long series featuring the Sealed With Love Bundle from the Spring/Summer catalogue. I’m hoping to bring you some ideas and show you this bundle can be used for more than just Valentine’s cards.

I thought I’d start the series off with something completely different, a love themed version of 3 in a Row, “Hearts & Kisses” made using the Sending Love dsp stack, Layering Squares Framelits and the Sealed With Love stamp set.

To make the board you will need a piece of Real Red cardstock measuring 61/2″ by 6 1/2″

Take a piece of the Sending Love dsp stack, or any other piece of 6″ square patterned paper. Score on both sides at 2″ and 4″ to form a grid pattern.

Cut two strips of 12″ cardstock 1/4″ wide and cut in half so you have four 1/4″ strips each 6″ in length.

Stick the red strips along the score lines on your dsp piece to form the grid. Stick the whole piece to the centre of the Real Red piece, your board is complete.

To make the playing pieces you will need to cut twelve squares from the 1 1/4″ scallop square Framelit in Real Red and twelve squares of Whisper White from the 1 3/16″ square die.

One six of the white squares stamp the lips images from the Sealed With Love stamp set in Real Red ink and on the other six stamp one of the Heart images. Stick the stamped images onto the red squares and your ready to play.

I loved making this little game and can see it transferring to a other stamp sets such as Beetles & Bugs or Day the Beach really well.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you join me tomorrow for my next Sending Love project.

Super Quick Santa Card

I love making quick and easy cards, especially at Christmas when we need more than usual. This super quick card just took a few minutes to make and can be easy replicated.

The cute little Santa is made from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and punch simply stamped in the archival black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Markers.  He’s mounted on an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits which are possibly one of my favourite sets of Framelits. The banner was created by using banner from the Bunch of Banners and a greeting from Star of Light which is set I really need to play with more.

The background was a just three strips of the Candy Cane Lane DSP, which is included in this months special paper sale. Buy three packs of DSP and get a fourth pack for free, so its the perfect time to stock up on your favourites.

Candy Cane Lane Village Card

Today’s card was made using the Candy Cane Designer paper as a focus and was super quick to make. I took the paper with the little gingerbread houses and cut three out to form the main focus point.

The background was created using the Softly Falling Textured embossing folder and some Whisper White cardstock. I then finished the card off with some of the gorgeous stitched grosgrain ribbon in real red and a greeting from the Star of Light stamp set which has been cut out using the Bunch of Banners Framelits.
