Great Gift Idea

I think this is a GREAT gift idea for a parent, grandparent (with a picture of them and the grandchild) or whoever you need a "love" themed gift for.  I used our Pennant frame (Z1941 $8.95).  I cut the paper out using our Art Philosophy cartridge (yes it fits perfectly...yea!)  And I used our Heartstrings paper pack (X7193B) 

I added some silver sequins (Z2013 $2.95), pixie twine (Z3035 $3.95) some of our Picture My Life cards - Heartstrings (Z3046 $8.95).  I also used the January stamp of the month on this.

This is a great (and inexpensive) way to make a homemade gift that will be treasured for years to come and isn't very expensive!

Happy Birthday

Don't you hate it when you need a birthday card and you don't have any made...and you surely are not going to go buy one!  LOL  

Here is a card I sent to a sweet friend of mine.  She had a December birthday and I didn't want anything wintery or Christmasy, so I decided to use our Heartstrings paper pack (X7193B).  It is a set that strongly favors Valentines, hearts etc, but I thought it worked perfectly for birthday too.

I used Build-a-Cake stamp set (D1618 $17.95) for the cake and sentiment.  I added some silver glitter tape (Z1799 $4.95)  and our new Junebug Puffies (it's the flower under the sentiment Z3038 $4.95) and silver sequins (Z2013 $2.95).  

The puffies and the paper pack are only available until March 31(or while supplies last), so make sure you get them before they are gone.

And more importantly, get those stamps & supplies out and make some cards BEFORE you need them!

January Stamp of the Month

I have "fallen in love" with our January stamp of the month.  Pun not intended, but it works!  LOL  

Here is a picture of the images of the stamp of the month.

And a pictures of something our corporate office used that does NOT use it for Valentines.  So nice to see you can use these for more then just "love" layouts and cards.

Here are some cards I made using our Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge and the January stamp of the  month.  It is a fun set of stamps...and the Artfully Sent cartridge is also cool!  

For more ideas on how to use this stamp set, see my post on January 2nd, the pages I made for my monthly groups also use this stamp set.  But, if you want this stamps set, you need to make sure you get it in the month of January, because once it's gone, it's long gone!  LOL

Time for some Hugs & Kisses!

Our new Seasonal Expressions catalog is out and we have some cute Valentines stamps and paper!  Here is a peek at our new XOXO (M1054) & Doodled Designs (A1170) stamps!  I stamped the doodled circle in our Pixie stamp pad and the Hugs & Kisses in Cotton Candy stamp pad.   I also embossed the white cardstock with our dots template.

This was a FUN & EASY card.  Need products?  Contact me  or check out my website at gottastamp.ctmh.com.

January Monthly Group Layouts

I LOVE these layouts!  It is using our Heartstrings paper pack.  It was meant to be used for Valentines pictures, but they went PERFECT with my Waffle Love pictures!  

In November, I want to Salt Lake City to our Team Builders Conference and our corporate office had the Waffle Love food truck come out to treat us!  I have never had food truck food, so this was a treat!  AND, I LOVE waffles!  So, my waffle had Biscoff spread on it YUM! and strawberries with whip cream.  Can I just say I am glad I don't live there because I would follow this truck all day long!  LOL  

On the front of the truck it had a mustache and eyebrows...LOL  So I took one of our Stuck on You Puffies (Z3037 $4.95...available only until March 31st 2015) and put it on my little word bubble.  How fun is that!

Here is the other layout.

I used our new heart embossing folder on this part of the layout.  

If you would like to make these layouts, check out the "upcoming events" tab at the top of this blog for date!  Hope to see you there!
