Bloggers Challenge – Valentines

I’m out of town, so this is scheduled to go off on Friday for the Bloggers’ Challenge which is a Valentine theme.  I think I’ve shown you all my Valentine’s this year…I’ve done quite a few!

These are the cute little pull-up boxes that my Stamp Club did last month using the Love You Much Bundle.  You pull the ribbon and the box of Conversation Hearts pulls up with it!  I’ve done this pattern with Hershey bars and other candy items…it has been around.

This one focuses on the Love You Much bundle that was on sale last month.  I used all the elements, stamp set, Heart to Heart punch and Candy Lane designer paper.  The stripes in this paper are my favorite and there are several variations of stripes in this package!   The large heart I stamped on Pretty in Pink with Riding Hood Red and hand-cut.  I stamped Friend to Friend in Riding Hood Red on Very Vanilla and punched with the Word Window punch, adding a couple silver mini brads to the side.  The 3 small hearts are punched from the Candy Lane DSP, I just used the back side of the small one for contrast.  The base is Pretty in Pink and the large heart is popped with dimensionals.  I used the slot punch on the front and back so the ribbon can feed down into the box and hold the box of Conversation hearts.

Hope you have a great weekend!  I’m headed to see Menopause at the theater with several of my girlfriends on Sunday and dinner after.  I’ve heard this is hysterical, so I’m really anxious to see it!

Set:  Love You Much
C/S: Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla, Candy Lane DSP
Inks:  Riding Hood Red
Other:  Heart to Heart punch, Vanilla grosgrain ribbon, Word Window punch, Silver mini brads, slot punch, dimensionals
