Creation Station - Love is in the Air, Love is Everywhere!

Welcome to the Creation Station Blog Hop for January! Our theme for this month is Love is in the Air, Love is Everywhere! I decided to make a card and small gift box project that could be used for an anytime "with love" gift, but I'll most likely use it for Valentine's Day gift!

I used the Sealed with Love set and Love Notes Framelits to start - and then went back to the main catalog to get some coordinating accessories.

I used the Sweetheart Framelit Die around the saying from the stamp set - and I love how the hearts on the Happy Heart Embossing Folder coordinate just perfectly with the sweetheart framelit shape!

And the arrow framelit for the Love Notes Framelits Dies is probably my favorite accent on the card! ...But I do love the bling, that comes from the Metallic Enamel Shapes and the thin strip of Silver Glimmer too! :)

I guess I really like all of it! :)

And probably one of my 'most favorite' quick, but cute things to make is our Clear Tiny Treats Boxes! With a 2" x 6" piece of Designer Series Paper (Sending Love DSP in this case), your box is quickly transformed into whatever design you'd like! LOVE... 

And it fits a good amount of treats!

I wrapped a piece of our Sale-A-Bration silver Metallic Ribbon as the 'belly band' that slides off the box. And everything else is 'Glue Dot-ted' to the belly band! 

I love using the silver Metallic Foil Doilies as the base layer - so pretty! And all the touches of silver - Glimmer Paper, Metallic Enamel Shapes and Thread add that fun 'pop' to the 'sent with love' banner!

All pretty simple stuff - but hopefully, something fun or new you haven't seen or used yet!

If you haven't seen any of the rest of the blog hop, here ya go ~

Thanks for stopping by,

Calendar Post-it Project for Class this Week!

We will be making this super cute and easy Calendar Project at stamp class this week! I love that it not only serves as a cute desktop calendar, but also has a Post-it Note Pad for all those little things you need to jot down. And the Easel Card design makes this so simple to create!

The papers and stamp set are from the Succulent Garden Suite - so on trend!! And I love that the two sheets of paper that I had planned can be flipped over so that you can make the calendar with the Sweet Sugarplum version if you like! Either way - such pretty papers!!

I hope you'll be joining us for class this week!

Happy New Year!
