MDS Valentines

These are the Valentine treat pouches I made for the kids at school using My Digital Studio 2 from Stampin' Up!  They came out so cute and were very quick to make.  The best part is, I can easily make them again next year just by having the file printed again.  The cutting and assembly took less than an hour, so next year they'll be REALLY fast to make!

Sale-a-bration Begins TODAY!

Ahhh, favorite time of the stampin' year!  It's the time of year when customers and demonstrators get something special from Stampin' Up! in the form of free gifts for each $50 we spend!  What could be better than that?!

I've spent a little time playing with some of my freebies, and boy...there are some cute products in this year's SAB (Sale-a-bration) that you can earn!  Check out this cute card I whipped up recently while my kids were napping.

How sweet is that little butterfly?  I am loving it!  The colors perked me right up, color inspiration came from this year's paper pack (which you can get for free, too).  Here's a closer look at the butterfly:

So if you've been working on a wish list, or thinking of hosting a party, this is the time to do it!  It's seriously the best time of the year to place orders, host parties, and especially to be a demonstrator.  For example, I've been earning SAB freebies for weeks now.  :)  Click here for more information!

I hope you can come to my Valentine Class!  We'll be using the You are Loved stamp set to make a stack of 6 cards.  The design is perfect for friends, family members, or that special someone.

Do you need more (or less) than 6?  Let me know!  You will be able to customize your stack to make the quantity you need.

Class price: $15
Session 1 - Wednesday, January 30th 4:30-6:00
Session 2 - Wednesday, January 30th 7:00-8:30
Session 3 - Friday, February 1st 4:30-6:00

To register for this class, contact me by Sunday, January 27th.  Then bring the class fee to your session.  (Due to the short registration period for this class, I am not requiring advance payments.)

Love the stamp set and color combination, but can't make it to class?  Here are some other designs I came up with as I was working on this event.  Maybe these will get your creative juices flowing so you can create your own valentines this year.  Just drop me an email or give me a call, and I'll be happy to help you with your design and to figure out what supplies you'll need to order in plenty of time to get them finished.
