Happy New Year!

It's nice to move on from Christmas projects. I almost forgot what to do without a Santa or snowman in the picture!


Happy New Year! What are your plans this year? I am going to loose 50 pounds...again, be less stressed about the things I can't change, rely more on faith, set office and work hours for my stamping business in order to be more productive and use less reds and pink in my projects. So far, I'm starting off with a bang! We made chocolate cupcakes from scratch and frosted them with Wilton Butter Cream frosting and my first post of the new year is red and pink! Who needs resolutions anyway...



These are my first three cards using the Love You Much Bundle that is the January promotion for Stampin' Up! You can see it here. The bundle is 20% off until January 31st.
It includes the Love You Much stamp set, Candy Lane Designer Series Paper and the beautiful new Heart to Heart punch all for $41.48. You can always purchase the pieces individually at regular price, only the bundle is on sale.

This card used the large heart in the Love You Much set. I stamped and cut out 5 hearts and folded them in the middle to make a dimensional flower of sorts.

  3. Happy New Year! You are funny and those cards are stinkin' cute! The way I figure it is that I make resolutions every day of the year and break them, so why should the beginning of a New Year be any different? LOL
