The Stamp Review Crew; Valentine Free For All


Welcome to another The Stamp Review Crew Hop!! We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who will be bringing you lots of ideas for one particular stamp set twice a month!!  The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month, you can hop along from one blog to the next gathering all kinds of inspiration for one Stampin' Up! stamp set. Please note the blog doesn't officially start until Monday January 19 so some of the links may not work.

I so excited for the fun to start!! We have a great group of talented stampers for this hop!!  If you are following the hop in order you just arrived from Martha's blog  Inch of Creativity where she made some beautiful projects!!! This hop is a little different we normally all feature just one stamp set but this hop instead we are all featuring different sets for Valentines. We'll be giving you lots of awesome ideas for valentines!!

I am using the You Plus Me Stamp Set along with some of the other fabulous valentine products from the Occasions Catalog. This set is a lot of fun to create with!!


When I started this cute project I was just going to show just these cute little note card ideas. When growing up; my grandma's one sister never married or had a family of her own; so all of us nieces, newphews, great nieces and nephews where very specail to her and she spoiled us kids BAD. She was very creative and talented and would make fun, special things for us :) I have a lot of wonderful memories of her. My husband and I don't have childrent so we like to do special things for all the kids and I love to make things for our neices, nephews and cousin's kids. I hope we are giving them wonderful memories like I have. My cousin's, sister in-laws are so busy all the time being a parent and all that comes with that; sometimes they just don't have enough hours in their day. So the idea was born to make little love notes for valentine's day for them to use on there kids at school. I thought it would help and save some time for them. lol So the above photo is what I created; then I thought I would clip them together with a Basic Hodgepodge Clip. Easy peasie perfect for that busy mom!

Those of you that know me; know I just can't ever make anything simple. lol Well my project kinda turned into another mega project.....


I decided to also make a little mini album of sorts to give to each of the parents. So they can record valentines day with the kiddo's and spouses. This is what it looks like all done. :) See what I mean this gal can't keep it simple! lol I used the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack, and the Hello Life Photopolymer Stamp Set. I think it turned out pretty cool and I can't wait to give it to them!

I'll share all the details about this project on Friday January 23 with more pictures so be sure to stop back. I hope you liked my project and an idea was born for you! Now you'll want to head on over to Bronwyn Eastley's Blog addINKtivedesigns and see her faboulous creations!
