Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for January 2018. This month our theme is Valentines! You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Cheryl Hamilton- Create With Cheryl or may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.
Valentine`s Day is the second most popular day of the year for sending cards, second only to Christmas. There are approximately 1 billion Valentine`s Day cards exchanged every year in the U.S. alone. I prefer handmade cards where you can see all the love that’s put into making them.
For my valentines, I’ve made a little bag. Fill it with candy or make a little pull-out note like shown above.
Love this bright, fun paper that’s a FREE SALE-A-BRATON ITEM. For every $50 you spend choose a FREE Sale-a-Bration item! CLICK HERE to browse the catalog.
Decided to give candy to my team at our meeting yesterday instead of a note. They already know I love them!
Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently, you are on my blog – Cheryl Hamilton @ Create With Cheryl, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next on the list.
I really love the sentiment in this card (and the font!)! Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team is focusing on Valentine or LOVE Cards! Instead of the typical Valentine paper, I’ve used Tasty Treats Designer Series Paper for this card. I love the way Stampin’ Up! makes all these products that go together!! Washi Tape. Sprinkles Embellishments. Ink/Paper. And Designer Series Paper.
Here’s the Card Details:
Stamps: Bloomin’ Love, Falling for You
Ink: Watermelon Wonder & Crumb Cake
Paper: Whisper White (5 1/2 X 11, scored at 4 1/4), Tasty Treats Specialty DSP (1 1/4 X 5 1/2)
I LOVE making cards! Everyone who knows me knows me knows that my favorite place is my craft room (AKA: Creation Station). I usually make cards, and when I’m done coming up with something new, there tends to be an explosion of paper, ribbon, & embellishments.
What I enjoy making even more is something 3-D! Boxes & bags are so much fun to make & to give away! So, this year in place of my monthly card classes, I’ll offer Cards, Etc. Classes! Starting this weekend! We’ll be making 3 cards with matching envelopes, plus a 3-D item!
Here’s my 3-D for January:
I’m hoping everyone will love making these! Simple to make! Fun to give!
January Cards, Etc. Classes will be Saturday, Jan. 28 at 2pm or Monday, Jan 30 at 10am. Cost is $10 or FREE with your $20 order placed that day.
