I HEART hearts!

Almost time for Valentine stamps! I got excited seeing the sneak peeks on GinaK's site of the Heartfelt Hits(can you believe among my thousands of stamps I don't yet have hands clinking glasses or a bride a groom yet?? the horror! just been waitin' for the right ones) and that Dr. Feelgood of Carolyn King's, oh my word! I was laughing hysterically and had to write her and confide it looks like my DH!(to me anyway) Carolyn King, have you been over here???!!LOL So now I have some Gina K stamp sets to add to my wish/must have/buy list! GinaK's release party is tomorrow from 7-10 CST, the first of her for me to attend, I've got my chocolate all lined up, and I'm ready to chatter!!! Come play!!
You know, I think this is the MOST excited I've ever been for Valentine's Day, usually I don't start ramping up til February 13th! My son Jonathan started school this year so it's really my first opportunity to go crazy with goodies for his classmates and teachers. And I have so many fun goodies to work with! Here are a couple I picked up cheap at Jo-Anns, had to share these great finds with you: Cuttlebug Hearts Dies(4 that layer, and aren't they just the prettiest heart shape?? not too fat, not too skinny) only $8 using a Michael's half off coupon(did you know they took those??) I had a blast running some of my scraps through, got these done in no time! And these adorable little brads, that are a perfect match for Blush Blossom, Regal Rose and Real Red! (Just FYI, the pink die cut hearts in the pic are not Regal Rose, but Pretty in Pink CS, those were the scraps I was using, not trying to match the brads here)
Stay tuned for LOTS of fun projects ahead using them! ;)


  1. Congrats, Melanie! The hippy looks gorgeous! Can't wait to see the rest of the set.
