SSINK Blog Hop: Love is in the Air!

Love is in the air today, which you’ll see as you hop along with the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration team!  You’re sure to get some great ideas & inspiration from these talented ladies.  I feel very fortunate (and challenged!) to be a part of this group!

I want to show you all what we’ll be doing in my February Clubs!  A set of notecards featuring Lift Me Up Stamp Set and the coordinating Designer Series Paper, Carried Away.  This paper just happens to be FREE with any $50 order during Sale-A-Bration (going through March 31st).  I saw this idea about a year ago from Mickey Roberts, but I can’t find the exact link…

Doesn’t this make a cute set!!  Can’t wait until my club members see this!

Card Details:

  • Stamps:  Lift Me Up
  • Inks:  Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaroon, Night of Navy, Peekaboo Peach
  • Paper:  Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaroon, Night of Navy, Peekaboo Peach Card Stocks (4 1/4 X 2), Carried Away Designer Series Paper (1 1/2 X 3 3/4 & 3 1/2 X 3/8)
  • Accessories:  Banner Triple Punch, Decorative Label Punch (inside sentiment), Up & Away Thinlits Dies, Enamel Shapes

We’re going to package them in these cute little tins.  They don’t ship to Hawaii, but I HAD to have them!!  Thanks to my brother, Gary, who lugged the big box on the plane last time when he flew over to see me & Mom.  Shipping to Hawaii.  You’d think it was another country!  But that’s a whole other story…

Want to make one of these??!  Come to club this month!  2 dates to choose from:  Saturday, Feb. 11th at 2 pm or Sunday, Feb. 12th at 1 pm at my house in Haiku.  To try it out, just place a $25 order that day!  I’m prepping 3 extra, so hurry to reserve your spot!

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers!
