Stampin' Creative Valentines Blog hop

I've teamed up with some of my fellow UK based Demonstrators for a monthly Blog Hop and this month sees the first of the Stampin' Creative Hops. Valentines Day is on the horizon, so there's no better project theme to set than just that. 

Having quite literally fallen in love with the gorgeous new Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies, from the Spring/Summer Occasions Catalogue, I couldn't help but showcase them for you. 

There are so many elements to this set, that it offers great versatility and value. 

The Thinlits used as standard would create a finished bag size of 9.4cm x 13.3cm, but I chose to create a gusseted version, so that the bag could take yet more treats.

Irresistibly Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper, is a FREE choice from the Sale-a-Bration Promotional Catalogue, with a £45 spend … and its just gorgeous! It's a white paper with a glossy white pattern to it that can be coloured to reveal the pattern further. Left white it gives a beautifully subtle look. It really is irresistible. 

My other love at the moment is the Perpetual Calendar Stamp Set. It offers a lovely selection of great background images, which is where I got the scattered hearts from that I stamped in Whisper White Ink across the corner of the card.

Now … I wonder what treats I shall find hiding in this bag on Valentines Day? … 

… and I wonder what Pip Todman has in store for you over on her blog? …  Click the Stampin' Creative Blog Hop button below to find out.

Hoping you will all be surrounded by lots of love this Valentines Day.

  8. Aww thank you. I'm pleased you like it. I adore that stamp set. If you take a look at it and think "outside the box", it offers great versatility. Funnily enough, I bought the actual Perpetual Calendar and still have it to put together, but I've used the stamp set loads, so I feel sure you won't be disappointed.
