More Valentines!

First is another shaker using the "Greta Shaker Mix" of Stampendous! Shaved Ice, Clear Seed Beads & White Sequins. Gotta say, putting foam tape around straight lines is way easier, but I do love the look using my Memory Box heart die. The circles are cut with a Lifestyle Crafts die.  I finally have a Paper Smooches stamp set thanks to a recent sale. I used 3 images from Friendly Flowers with PTI inks Berry Sorbet, Hawaiian Shores, Plum Pudding & Limeade Ice to meet the requirements of the current challenge.  The sentiment is also from the set & is stamped in HA Wet Cement.  I trimmed the white & SSS Fog cardstock flags & added Stickles to the open letters--so fun!  First time to cut the PPP bows (thank you again, Cat, for the blog candy!) & used the Fog cardstock. The card front was a bit plain, so dotted it with the Stickles.  I always say I don't need to buy anything, but if I sure do go through foam tape & doubly so with shakers!  Entering at Memory Box, Paper SmoochesChouxchoux & CropStop.
First time making matchbooks & oh what fun! Love the PTI MIM challenges--learn so many new things!  I'm heading to Girl's Night Out with my 2 friends & it's been months since we've gotten together.  I'm taking them each a mini York Peppermint Patty in a matchbook made with images from the PTI set Tag It's 3 inked in Memento Love Letter & VersaMagic Pixie Dust. The sweet Martha Stewart Washi tape is in a set of 4 I bought years ago & have barely used.  A bit of Stickles for sparkle--very simple & quick once you figure out the measurements. I'd make one for hubby's Valentine, but not sure it'd work too well as a carrot wrapping & candy is off limits--haha! I'm also entering at SSS Monday. Thanks so much for your visit--I know there are tons of blogs you could choose.
