  • Get ready for Valentine's Day with these Beautiful Handmade cards
  • A card class using new Meant To Be and  Forever Lovely Stamp Sets

Stampin' Up! Valentine Card-Making Class

February is a month of love.  Spread the love by making handmade Valentines for those you love.  And show yourself some love.  Spend a relaxing afternoon making memorable, handmade  Valentine's Day cards this coming Sunday afternoon.  Your loved ones will know how much you truly care when they see the time you spent creating lovely, handmade Valentine's card for each of them.  Valentine's Day isn't just for couples, and it doesn't have to be confined to romance.  Loving relationships strengthen mental well being, and Valentine's Day is a day to celebrate all kinds of friendships and the positive impacts they have on your life.

Join us for our January 27 card making class and create these six Valentine's cards, and you'll be ready to pop them in the mail or deliver them to each of your loved one.  These cards use new stamp sets, dies, and papers from the new Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog, and if you place a $50 or $100 between now and March 31, you'll earn a free selection from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.

Stampin' Up! Sneak Peek at the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies

  • A Sneak Peek at the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies
  • Lovely prints from the All My Love Designer Series Paper
  • Paper Pumpkin and Animal Expedition team up for Valentines

Stampin' Up! Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies 

I know, I know.  It's not even Christmas,so what am I doing showing Valentine's Cards already.  Because demonstrators can pre-order from the upcoming catalogs, I'm just too excited to wait to show you some of the new items coming your way in January from the Spring Occasions catalog.  What I'm showing today is the new All My Love Designer Series Paper, Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, and the sentiment is from the Forever Lovely stamp set.  You'll see them all in the new Occasions catalog, which will show up in your mail box towards the end of December if you're a customer of mine. If don't have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and you need the upcoming catalogs, just let me know.   

The card today uses a Crumb Cake cardstock base.  Then a layer of Powder Pink.  And then a layer of the All My Love Designer Series Paper.    

I used the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies to create the two hearts.  The one on the left is Lovely Lipstick, and the one on the right is Pink Powder.  If you look closely, you can see the stitches on the Powder Pink heart.  This die set includes 16 dies, but several of the dies cut frames only, like the Power Pink die on my card.  When you cut this heart-shaped, stitched frame, you also cut a heart from the center, meaning your die does double duty.   I haven't begun to use all of the possible heart shapes created by this wonderful die set.    

The sentiment shape is a die cut from the Lakeside Framelit Dies.  The sentiment is from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set, and the sentiment is stamped in Lovely Lipstick ink.  A Red Rhinestone accents the end of the sentiment label.

The ribbon is the 3/8" Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon from the Stampin' Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  It is so lovely in real life. The entire All My Love Suite from the new Spring Occasions catalog will create cards not only for Valentine's Day, but Weddings, Anniversaries, and any time you want to let someone you love know you are thinking about them.


  • Stamps: Forever Lovely (sentiment)
  • Ink:  Lovely Lipstick
  • Paper:  Crumb Cake, Powder Pink, Lovely Lipstick, All My Love Designer Series Paper
  • Accessories:   Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, Lakeside Framelit Dies, Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels, 3/8" Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon, Big Shot, Mini Dimensional 

Year-End Closeouts sale through January 2, 2019

Want to know which Holiday Catalog items will carry over after January 2?  Download a pdf copy of the Holiday carryover list here.  Pay particular attention to the bundles in the current Holiday catalog that you're thinking about purchasing for next year.  Buy them before January 2, because the bundle price -- a 10% savings -- goes away at on January 2.  You'll still be able to purchase these carryover items after January 2, but you'll no longer get the 10% savings for purchasing them as a bundle.  

You'll also want to stretch your holiday budget by purchasing discounted merchandise now, while supplies last.   A few surplus items from the annual catalog are also included in this sale.    

This is also a great time to pick up your retiring favorites from the Holiday catalog that will go away January 2.

If you're like me, in addition to a list of the Holiday catalog carryover list, you want a complete list of the retiring Holiday catalog items so you can mark up your Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog for easier reference.  Here's a pdf of the Full Year-End Closeout list, including which items are discounted.
