Oh Sweet Valentine

Loves and Hugs and
All Things Red......

Well it is that time of year again when we are surrounded with reminders of  love and hearts and all things 'smoochie' as my Darling Daughter (DD) refers to it.

As part of our 'kick-off' this weekend, the Embellees Team are hosting an 'Invitation Crop' with all of our 2010 Workshop Lovelies.
We have some very special cards we are going to do as a 'make and take' on the day...  so check them out as a preview below!

This gorgeous card made by our lovely Cassie McCumstie with the new Stampin Up Birdcage Stamps - just lovin these at the moment (yes you all know I have this fetish for all things birdcage and vintage - always have). 

I couldn't help but go down the traditional path of 'All Things Red' to co-incide with our next stocking day - 08 February 2011 at A Beautiful Thing.   

You have got to love the use of the Stampin Up products they really do add that special something to a card. 

Here we have used the very versatile 'Top Note' die cut from the Sizzix range and a gorgeous new embossing folder I picked up at our local stamping shop (the one in Adamstown for all the local gals).

Here is another quickie I did with the scraps on my table... this doesn't need to be one to use on Valentine's Day it could be used for any special occasion to let someone know you just 'loves em'....  Used some gorgeous 'teeny weeny' paper roses, the very much loved dymo (for that vintage finish) and again that gorgeous new heart embossing folder.

Third time lucky, just love the new stamps we picked up recently at the wonderful Pages2Scrap.  These are ones that match the Glimmer Mist Screens by the lovely Heidi Swapp - how nice is this frame finished with some book paper hearts, bling, ribbon and a cryptic message.... so quick and easy, but so nice!

And last, but not least.... time to pull out a quick layout to show off... this was a photo I so wanted to get done and in my best friend's album... this little guy really can 'melt your heart'.... 

Gotta love that you can dive back into your old papers and the scrap drawer to pull together a nice layout. 

 I wanted to experiment with some stamping around the border and add some simple embellees to finish off... think this looks like a scraplift option at our Crop on Sunday - what do you say girls?

And on a final note.....

Don't forget we open up our Workshop Registrations tomorrow.  If you are interested in registering and getting more details on how to secure a spot, please email us at: and check out our Workshops 2011 Tab above for what we have on offer and the 'low down' on how we run our very popular workshops here in the Hunter.

Until next update
