Happy Heart Day Bundle

Kid_valentines Hi!

I thought of this idea last month and just didn’t have the time to finish it…but here it goes…

Using the Happy Heart Day Bundle I created this kit for kids to make their own Valentines.  I used the smaller jar because this is my sample…but you could buy the larger jars at Walmart & fill it up!

What’s in mine?  3 sheets of  Real Red cardstock 3 x 6, 3 sheets of Regal Rose cardstock 3 x 6, 6 small envelopes, 3 pencils, small bag of Hershey kisses (so they can eat them while they are coloring :)) 7 Stamped images from the Happy Heart Day stamp set (one in case of an oops). The image on the top and the tag are both attached with removable adhesive so they can color it and then put it back on.  Here’s a picture of the side, so you can see the chocolate…. I put them in the medium cellophane bag because I didn’t want chocolate getting on the cardstock or envelopes. Side_view_kids_valentines
One more picture….this is what I was working on when I started feeling sick.  It didn’t turn out the way I had planned but I’m sure my Brooke will  like it!!  (She’s getting some major hardware in her mouth today so hopefully she’ll be able to eat chocolate in 15 days!!  Ever heard of the Herbst appliance?)M_ms

Two quick reminders…Today is the last day to get the Happy Heart Day Bundle and tomorrow Sale-a-bration begins!!  (You can still purchase the Happy Heart Day Stamp set after today, you just don’t get the Free ribbon.)  If you’d more information on either please let me know.

See ya tomorrow and thanks for stopping by!

Congrats to Jen Pahoulis!!! You’ve won the Faux Tile card, please email me your address.

Blog changes!!

Hello Stampers!

Today I'm making some changes….and for putting up with me, I'm giving a little goodie away. I'm adding a new blog…..I know, how can I manage another?  Read on and I promise it will all make sense!!!

Here's the details…………………. Stampin' Academy Chic n Scratch Liveis my new blog…… where I'll put all my educational information.  I'm going to explain this as best I can.  Now that I'm doing Video Tutorials, its slowing my blog down and for those dear customers of mine that still  have dial up, they are not able to pull up my blog…..the content is too large…does that make sense?  In creating a new site, it will allow everyone to view my blog and if they want to see the Tutorials they can head over there.  I will always post the photo here on Chic n' Scratch and include a link to the Tutorial.  Let's hope this works!!  To the girls that have emailed me about my blog not loading…Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!  You motivated me to fix what wasn't working!!  As usual, I'm sure we'll run into a snag or two…..but just know I'm trying to cross all my t's and dot all my i's …. hee hee

Now to the reward…..head on over to my Stampin' Academy Chic n Scratch Live! and see what's in store for you….okay I know I said I'd show you the picture over here first :)))) here ya go my Faux Tile Card & the darling Nugget Purse.

Faux_tile Nugget_purse_tutorial_2

p.s. This new blog is not one you'll need to check every day….I will always post a link over here when I add something new!!  I want to make this super easy for everyone!

Have a Fantastic Day!!
