I hope all of you had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. The holidays were really relaxing for me and I enjoyed the time my kids had off from school. It was nice not waking up to an alarm clock for a couple of weeks. They are now all back in school and I'm hoping I'll be able to return to my normal schedule. While I'm grateful for the time to myself during the day, that alarm clock sure does ring early!
I missed the opportunity to stamp many Christmas projects, so I thought I'd get an early start on Valentine's Day. I want to come up with something fun to stamp for all of the Valentine's that my kids have to take to school.
I used the Petal Cone Big Shot Die and folded it in half to make this treat pouch. I stamped the Blushing Bride cardstock with Blushing Bride ink using one of the flower images from the Mixed Bunch stamp set. The sentiment came from the Outlined Occasions stamp set that you can earn for FREE during Sale-a-bration (starting January 24th). I stamped it in Riding Hood Red ink and colored in the letters with Blushing Bride ink. It's difficult to see in the photo, but I finished off the scallops by poking holes in them with my paper piercing tool.
I designed this project with a sucker in mind. For some reason my kids don't feel like their Valentine's are complete without including a treat of some kind or at least a pencil. They're too funny.
I'm not sure if I will be making these for my kids, but this is prototype number one. I'll be making a few more and then letting them vote on which ones they want to make for their classes. I have a lot to make so it feels good to get a head start on this project. Thanks for stopping by!
