Stamp Nite is fast approaching. I like to be prepared well ahead of time, just in case the week gets chaotic before the actual event. So while the 1st is a ways off, I had time today to think about what we might do. I thought Nichole's Criss Cross Box was a fun project, add a matching card made with some cutting scraps from the box, and you've got a neat little Valentine gift for a co-worker, child, teacher, etc.
I've randomly stamped images from the SU! set Sweet Shapes all over a piece of Pretty in Pink card stock. After stamping, score the card stock as shown in the linked directions, make your cuts and put the box together. A simple red belly band and stamped scallop embellishment complete the box. Add a cello of Valentine treats topped off with ribbon and you're almost done! Now just make a sweet 3 x 3 card using the same supplies.
So, I went to Target today to pick up a prescription and went looking for Valentine candy, there is barely anything out on the shelves, narry a box of kids valentines to be seen either. So curious me asked where they were. They aren't being put out until the 1st....WHAT? Seems to me in years past the good were out, oh I don't know, October...JK, but way before the 1st of February.
I wonder what their thinking is? I was lucky to find these Valentine kisses, although come Stamp Nite the cellos may be filled with something else should I find what I was really on the hunt for.
Now I need to think of 2 more projects.....hmmmm.
