Blog Button Feb 2015-resized


Hiya!  So glad you could join us on this month’s edition of the Di’s Country INKers blog hop.  You’ve probably arrive from Di’s blog, but if you’re just joining us, grab a cuppa and hop along with us.  We’ve got some cute Valentine’s Day and Friendship ideas to inspire you with.

I actually have two projects to show you today.  First up is a clean and simple Valentine.  I started with an 11 IMG_3249x 4 1/4 card base that I scored at 5 1/2 to form a tent-style card.  The second layer was partially embossed with the Happy Heart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The stamped words are from the Crazy About You Photopolymer set.  Because Photopolymer stamps are clear, I was able to see right through the stamp to line things up properly.  A strip of Real Red 1/4″ cotton ribbon was adhered below the words and the corners were rounded using the Project Life corner rounder punch.  The two stacked hearts were cut from Real Red cardstock – the large one is die-cut from the smallest of the Hearts Collection framelits, and the smaller heart was done using a punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  The final touch was to add black dots between the Love You’s with the Project Life journaling pen.

I don’t usually show two projects in one post, but January’s My Paper Pumpkin kit was just so darned cute that I thought I’d show you what they sent!



I really look forward to seeing that orange package in my mailbox each month.  Did you know that for the first time ever the price of a 3-month subscription to My Paper Pumpkin kits has been lowered?  Regularly $59.95, during Sale-A-Bration you can get it for $54.85, and, that qualifies you for your choice of the free Sale-a-Bration awards!  Place your order today and your first kit will be in the mail to you around the 10th of the month.

I’d love to stay and visit a while longer, but it’s time to send you over to Kathya for some more inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by!
