Punchy Lovin'!

Wow!   Where oh where has this week gone?
Whooooosh!   That's fassssssssssssssssst!

Here's my latest Valentine, featuring a couple of my favorite punches and new items from the Occasions catty!


This one is very easy, and it all started with the PPA237 sketch challenge this week.  

I knew that I wanted to use the new Stacked with Love Paper Stack, and those diagonal stripes seemed to insist on being used!   (I think it reminds me of oxford fabric stripes ... but enough about old faves.)
I just adore the itty bitty hearts in white on black from the paper stack, and that led me straight to the darling new Bow Builder Punch.  Honestly ... this punch is going to be one of my faves for a very long time.  Just so easy and cute!  You'll find the punch for these little red hearts as a part of the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack

The thermometer has taken a nose-dive here today.  Hopefully you're all cozy, and have found a bit of inspiration to warm up your stampin' table soon.   Stay warm, my friends!

You Made My Day!

Today is the day set aside as a special "Thank You for a Great Year!" event for my customers here in the studio!  2014 was a terrific year, and I'm definitely looking forward to sharing & stamping with all of you during 2015!  I'm so fortunate to have a "job" that I love and finding new 'friends I hadn't met yet' all along the way.  You've helped me to stretch as a business woman during 2014, and my goal is now set to reach a new promotion that I have only admired-from-afar previously.  So ....

Thank you big bunches, m'friends!!!

In a perfect world, all of you would be here today to collect your "Thank You" {{{{hugggsss}}}} in personT'would be sweet indeed.  You'll be welcome to join us during the new year ... my class calendar is always ready.  If you don't see just what you need, you are very welcome to suggest or ask!  

Guests were invited to bring and share their favorite paper crafted creations today, whether or not they made them as a result of a class here.  What was I thinking without having a camera at hand??   ***How do you spell ...  FLUB?!***

Just one stamping project for today, with a totally appropriate sentiment.  



Sale-A-Bration begins in a mere three more days ... and this fun sentiment will be found in the "Best Day Ever" stamp set.  You can't "buy" this set, but you can receive 1 new item for FREE from the Sale-A-Bration brochure for every $50 spent on any Stampin' Up! order!

See that darling little bow?  It is oh-so-easy to make with the awesome new Bow Builder Punch from the new Occasions Catalog!  
 
This example is a mere 2 1/4" long, and is created with the cool new 'Birthday Bash' 12"x12" designer series paper, also found in the Occasions catty, available on Tuesday, January 6.   
Even though the stamp says, "You made my day" ... you've all actually "made my year" ... and I thank you bunches!   
I have some new things coming up during 2015.  You're certainly invited to join in!   Happy New Year, everyone!
