My favorite free item in the Stampin Up Sale-A-Bration is the Happy Hello Simply Sent Kit. The kits are so versitle and intended to be used when you need a card in a hurry. The Simply Sent Kits are designed to make card making a snap and include 8 diecut cards and super cute coordinating diecut envelopes and embellishments to make 8 cards.
Today’s Project started out as a simply sent card from the Happy Hello Kit #130149 but with a few scored lines a couple of snips and folds I converted the card into a treat box. I embellished the box with the sticker flower, rhinestones and twine and then filled a treat bag with candy and put it in the box. Love it. I really want to do a Happy Hello card workshop to put all the ideas into action.

Valentine’s Day is long over but I had to share a Valentine that Blair (sister #3) made. It is rare that Blair provides blog input so I thought I’d share her simple craft!
Congratulations to my friend Elizabeth and her fiance Mike who recently got engaged on Valentines Day weekend. I waited to post until it was facebook official. Today’s card is the one that I sent to congratulate the happy couple. I used the More Amore Specialty DSP #129309 as the background and then stamped the Eiffle tower from the Artistic Etching stamp set #120573 onto another strip of the More Amore DSP. I added a folded paper doily #129399 and then layered banners and scallops and a stamped heart from the Hearts a Flutter stampset #129252 and cut out using the coordinating framelits #130159. I finished it off with a piece of pool party satin ribbon. The ribbon is a free item from the Stampin Up annual Sale-A-Bration catalog.

This is the Valentine that I made for my sweet Panda loving son. Yes he may be 17 but he has loved Pandas forever. I wonder if he loves them because when I was a teen my bedroom was Panda wallpaper and lime green, black and white shag carpet. So sad when we sold my mom’s house a few years back and the Panda wallpaper still intact- I am sure it was one of the first things to go. Oh well, I saw a panda card on Pinterest that inspired me to pull out my Stampin Up punches and Framelits to create this cutie. So happy to make cute punch art.

What a cute and fun Valentine using the Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP #126922 and the coordinating Oh Whale stamp set #129132. This paper including the name, Sunshine and Sprinkles, is sure to put a smile on your face! The beauty of the Stampin Up DSP is that it is made to work together- All 4 of the pieces of DSP used on this card are from the Sunshine and Sprinkles paper collection and just makes me want to sing in the rain!

For todays post, I promised my niece, Elizabeth that I would post her Valentine basket that she made for her boyfriend Joseph. Elizabeth is the daughter of my sister Blair, the sister that rarely posts on the blog. Elizabeth decorated a heart shaped bucket and filled it with sweets and stuff. Each item had a cute Valentine sentiment attached to it with a tag that described the object. For example the the apple tag says “you are the apple of my eye!”
