Love Is In The Air

Hey y'all! Happy Friday! I hope you are having a great week so far! I've got a fun post with a few different projects for you today! AND there is a prize up for grabs, so be sure to read all the way to the bottom on this one! Tee hee!

These projects all feature some awesome new goodies at My Craft Spot! Kimberly has two adorable Valentine Stamp Sets, Bitty Bags, and Valentine twine available now! All are SOOO cute! Check 'em out!

Stamp Set #1-Always & Forever
 Stamp Set #2-Build A Valentine
 Bitty Bags & Valentine Twine
 "How Do I Love Thee?" Candy Bar Wrapper

Supplies Used
Bitty Bag, Twine, Seam Binding, Stamp: My Craft Spot
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye
Tickets: Making Memories
Puffy Stickers: KI Memories
Rhinestones: Studio G
Button: The Paper Studio
Ink: Stampin' Up!, ColorBox (Clearsnap)
Adhesive: Helmar

This is a candy wrapper for a Hershey bar. I stamped the sentiment 'How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count The Ways' on the front of the bitty bag. I also stamped on the hearts. Then inside the bitty bag are tickets that pull out telling 'the ways I love thee.' Tee hee! I hope the hubby will like it!
 Up close of my bitty bag...
 I used seam binding to attach my tickets together. You pull on the seam binding and the tickets pull out one at a time.
 Here are my tickets pulled out. I used stamps from My Craft Spot to stamp on each of them.
 Isn't this red/pink/white twine the cutest?! It's so festive for Valentine's Day!
 "Be Mine" Card

Supplies Used
Stamp, Twine, Crinkle Ribbon, Bitty Bag: My Craft Spot
Cardstock: The Paper Studio, Core'dinations
Patterned Paper, Sticker: Crate Paper
Pearls: Michaels
Brads: The Paper Studio
Ink: Stampin' Up!
Embossing Machine: Cuttlebug (Provo Craft)
Embossing Folder: Swiss Dots
Adhesive: Helmar
Other: dragonfly embellishment
 I used heart shaped brads to wrap my twine around to create a argyle patterned background on my card.
 This dragonfly embellishment provides lots of dimension.
 I stamped the inside of the card with more yummy stamps from My Craft Spot.
 This is a large card. It measures 8.5 x 5.5 inches. It fits perfectly into the large bitty bag. I used crinkle ribbon to tie off my bitty bag. I must say, they sure make one cute envelope for a card!
 "Always & Forever" Treat Bag

Supplies Used
Stamp, Twine, Bitty Bag: My Craft Spot
Chipboard: Momenta
Rhinestones: Studio G
Ink: Stampin' Up!
Adhesive: Helmar
Other: dragonfly

This medium sized bitty bag makes the perfect gift bag for one of my favorite treats...gourmet chai tea, Yummo!
 This glitter chipboard sticker is from Momenta. I also used more of the cute Valentine Twine to tie off the bag.
 I stamped my sentiment directly onto the bag.

It's difficult to say a favorite. I like all of them and they have their own use. Since it is almost valentine's Day I'll say "Always and Forever" I subscribed to your blog. Will not be able to be a follower right now because I am having google issues.
