Stamp to the Max February Blog Hop

Thanks for joining me again this month! Since it is the month of St Valentine and other romantic notions....I will give you a couple ideas on what is happening at our house.

The next few weeks are a big deal at our house.  Valentine's Day is of course on the 14th and you will want to share something with your sweetheart that day.  The card I have for you today is quick and easy and something that your special someone would love to get with a hand written note inside.  The DSP and laser cut heart are from the More Amore DSP pack.  Its really cute!  Then I used the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and matching framelits to creat the little scallop heart with the chevron heart inside it.  Quick and easy.

My son, who is in Kindergarten, is having the traditional party for school.  We put together these cute cello bags with a simple topper for him and his classmates.  I am sick of getting candy for him.  I feel like it is a constant push of candy from Halloween to Easter.  So, we are giving pencils away! I found these cute pencils in an 8 pack at Target for $1.  I used the 1" x 8" cello bags and the Hearts a Flutter bundle again for the topper.  Quick and easy....and candy free!  Each cello bag fits 2 pencils perfectly and I happened to find the cute pencils that matched the DSP for the most part.

I only have projects for Valentine's so far, but to round out the end of the month at our house we have my birthday on the 28th.  I wonder is my husband will make a card for me?  The little guy seems into card making, maybe it will rub off on Dad now.  Then, the week after my birthday (in March) we will be celebrating out 10 year anniversary.  I have to come up with a sweet card for that!  It for sure has to top Valentines. 

So, there is our big month.  Its full of love, laughter, and forever after.  :)  Now hop along to the next blog and enjoy the other fabulous ideas you get.
