I seriously love Valentines.

Not so much the day, but making them.  How weird is that?  I mean, the day itself is fine but I've never been one to make a huge deal out of it.  Arbitrary romance on a Thursday after a busy work week sorta sets the bar too high for me.  :D

I do, however, very much enjoy making Valentine cards and gifts.  Guess it takes me back to being really young and cutting hearts from construction paper and sticking them to doilies with glue and glitter.  Heh, not much has changed.

Hurry, these special sets are only available until January 21, 2013.  Perfect for kid's Valentine treats or cards.  Mine are on order and as soon as I get them, expect a fabulous treat post!  Stay tuned. Click here to get yours now. Shop our Clearance rack too!

Here are a couple of my Valentines from other Stampin' Up! sets...

It's a New Year

Wow.  Has it really been over a month since I've posted?  The holidays are always crazy and I find having to choose between spending time with my family, crafting and cooking always win out over blogging.  No, this doesn't help my business, but I wouldn't trade the joy of small simple things like spending time with family over it.

It's January and that means the new Spring 2013 Mini catalog is out and ready to be drooled over! There are some seriously gorgeous offerings and I fear I'm going to have absolutely everything in it.  I've already received a couple, a few,  ok a lot of items from it!

I think my most favorite item from the Spring catalog is the Honeycomb embossing folder; it sets such a beautiful background or foreground embellishment.

Don't you love the color combination here?  It's Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Very Vanilla and Bashful Blue.  So soft and homey.  It features the new Tea for Two Designer Series Paper, Honeycomb Embossing Folder, Oh Hello! stamp set and Oval Framelit dies from the Spring 2013 mini catalog.  I am totally in love with the large chevron stamp from the Oh Hello! set, it's so versatile.

Haven't seen the Spring 2013 catalog yet? Take a look here.
