I hope 2019 finds you with happy hearts! This 2018 Occasions stamp set, Heart Happiness (now retired) made my heart smile. I liked it cause it has an array of nice and not-to-fancy hearts. Perfect for many occasions.
I used it to make this month’s calendar along with blushing bride and berry burst inks and papers. It’s such a simple layout and design and can easily be transcribed to a clean and simple card front… Perfect for that friend or significant other…for whomever’s heart you’d like to make happy!
Oh! I had a fun little idea to share for you DIYers out there… This comes follower, Roberta. Instead of gifting the entire calendar at once, she sends her friends the next calendar page one month at a time with a little note! This most DEFINITELY makes my heart happy.
Head over and check out what Anne and Cheryl have done!
So… a while back a friend of mine asked me to make a “Baby’s First Year” scrapbook album for her daughter who is due sometime this month. They made it as a gift for her at the shower. For baby’s first year, I usually do a Valentine themed page for the month of February, but since this conflicted with the actual ARRIVAL of the baby, I decided to try to meld the two ideas together. So, this is what I got… (idea was cased from a card I saw on pinterest… but I cannot remember who)
I apologize for the junky picture, (and the surrounding mess) but it is what it is. And, I don’t have the album anymore to take another… But, I LOVE it… (oh… so humble I am…. snort). For this, I used every heart framelit and punch I owned. And, since it was a baby boy, I wanted to keep the red and pink, and girly to a minimum. Hence the pool party, island indigo and suede…
AND!! I’m part of ANOTHER blog tour. 2 A MONTH now!! (WOW). The next one is coming up THIS Sunday. And, it is the “Anniversary Blog” tour. It will feature all of the stamp sets that SU is releasing every month in honor of their 25th anniversary.
