A Valentine's class and some tips


Just when you thought I was giving you a break from stamping...I'm baaaaack! If you so choose to accept this mission, you will create two beautifully hand-made Valentine's cards, a perfectly petite love-note, a tin full of chocolates...mmmm, and a cleverly created pull-up box of Conversation hearts! Fee for the class is a mere $15!! I will offer this class on two dates, so please join me on Sunday, January 18th at 2 PM OR Thursday, January 29th at 6 PM. Want it all for yourself AND The class for only $5??? Pre-order your Love You Much bundle <-----check out this post for more details, NOW and the stamp set, papers, and punch will be yours to take home!! This kit is currently discounted at 20% off, but only until January 31st! Get it now and you save! save! save! Discount on the bundle AND discount on the class...what a deal! Here are some close-ups of the projects for curiousity's sake. :)

Want to know how I masked out the "O" in the Love box above this text? It was so super simple! I simply punched out a 1" circle from the sticky end of a post-it note and stuck it over the "O" on my stamp. Since it covered a smidge too much, I merely took scissors and trimmed the excess. Easy peasy! Here's a picture for you visual folk. (Please hold your gasps at my dirty "Love" stamp until the end of the post!)


And finally...you know the little pull treat box above? It's really a neat concept and I modified Beate's tutorial over on Splitcoast... a pull treat...or something like that! Anyway, I cut a piece of Riding Hood Red cardstock to 4 x 7 1/4" and scored along the 7 1/4" side at 3/4", 3 1/4", 4", and 6 1/2" This box is so cool! You just pull the ribbon up and the box slides right out!
I used my Scor-Pal to score this and you will notice there is no 3/4" mark to score at. I simply shift my cardstock over 1/4" and use the 1" mark as my 3/4" mark. Here's a visual with all the markings to confuse you! :)


WOW this was a long post! I had a lot to get out there. :) I hope you enjoyed the little tips and don't forget to sign up for the class!
