I also wanted to add one of the pieces from my recently acquired Hodge Podge Hardware, so chose a sentiment that would fit inside one of these and added it to the top of my box. The only thing left to do was add some hearts of course! I had made the "clasp" for the box out of a 1/2" circle, but replaced it with a heart to keep with the theme, and it just looked so cute. Then added some Blushing Bride and Basic Gray Hearts to the top of the box - Spritzed with Shimmer Most and punched out with my Heart Punch of course - and the project was finished.

I thought I would just pop a quick note in to let everyone know that I am still about, but have been very busy with work this month. I have had the opportunity to do some higher duties work and that also meant an increase in hours, so little time left for crafting, and the item I did make I gave away before I took a picture!!! I know where it is so will post when I remember to take my camera and get photo.
The good news is, that now I am on holiday for 3 weeks, yep 3 beautiful weeks, and I am hoping to get lots of creating done. I have been doing a bit of blog surfing and have a few projects in mind so check back in over the next few weeks and check them out.

With Christmas behind us and a New Year just starting, it's time to think about up-coming events. The next one on the horizon is Valentine's Day, and while it's not as "big" here as it is in some other parts of the world, its a nice time to let someone know you are thinking of them. Stampin' Up! have a great promotion that lets you do that in such a cute way, and that is the Sweethearts Promotion.
There are three ways to take advantage of this promotion
- If you purchase either the Sweetheart Stamp Set you get a set of Heart Treat Cups for free.
- If you purchase the Full Heart Punch you get a set of Heart Treat Cups for free.
- And best of all, if you purchase the stamp set and the punch you get 2 sets of Heart Treat Cups absolutely free!
This stamp set and punch are designed to work together, and with the addition of the Treat Cups they let you make really cute projects, not just for Valentine's Day, but anytime you want to send someone a little something to let them know they are on your mind.
