Where did the month go?

I don’t know about you, but it feels like just yesterday I was hearing a prediction about winter ending soon, followed by dropping temperatures with three snow storms and now I am looking at what to create for the spring holidays. Where in the world did February go? Before it comes to an end, I want to send a quick reminder about my upcoming workshops and monthly specials. MissCarriesCreations-FebruaryReminder

February Specials

We had THREE incredible specials this month that you will want to take advantage of.  If you are a member of the Create with Miss. Carrie’s Creations Facebook group, you have had a chance to see me create two of the cards from the Love Blossoms Card Kit. This kit has been one of my favorites so far. PURCHASE THIS KIT

We are also giving away FIVE FREE stamps sets to anyone who becomes a consultant and joins our HeARTfully Blessed Creations team. When you pay the $75 sign-up fee you receive the $85 in stamps, a $210 kit, and a $50 product voucher! ♥ JOIN OUR TEAM

Last, but not least, in January we introduced the our adorable Heart Happy special.  At the end of the month, you will no longer be able to purchase these, and I promise you will regret it.  I have already stocked up. ♥ I WANT THAT PAPER

For such a short month, there was a lot to remember. That is why I always send out these little notes each month. I know that I am always one who forgets and then regrets when it is too late. Please feel free to post a comment if you have any questions or want to know more about joining this amazing company.

I can’t wait to see what you create.

OH! ONE LAST THING

Everyone who places an order in the month of February receives a FREE Cricut™ Design Space file from me to create my Valentine Star Wreath

Valentine Treats & Color Dare Inspiration

This week, at Color My Heart Dare, you have been given a beautiful Valentine’s Day Mood Board to use as inspiration for your project. I personally found this a creative way to showcase some colors that you might not consider for the holiday.  These current color combinations are very popular right now, so it should be easy for you to create something delightful for this challenge.

I found it to be quite a coincidence that most of the colors match the products in our Heart Happy collection. The combination of teal, red and pink go well together and inspired me to create this gift of Red Hot Valentine Treats.

I found my jars in the Target, but there were not many left when I went. You could consider purchasing these sweet little Pink Lids from Amazon and using them with some jars you already own or fill these adorable Pink Tumblers with candy instead.

No matter what you decide to fill with candy, once you have filled your jar, use some cute papers and Gold & White Twine to decorate the lid, and begin creating your tag using our Fancy Tags Thin Cuts.

To create my tag, I used a variety of Fancy Tags cut from the Heart Happy papers and some Candy Apple cardstock stitched and layered with Thin 3D Foam Tape.

The sentiment on the tag, as well as the hearts, were from our A Piece of My Heart stamp set. There are quite a few sentiments on that set that would work for your tag.

To finish it off, I tied a bow using the White & Gold Twine that had been wrapped around my lid, and added a simple little Gold Heart Clip.

This Red Hot Valentine Treat is a very simple project, but is bound to make your Valentine happy this year.  I hope you have been inspired to create your own Red Hot Valentine Treat and hope that you join us for this Color My Heart Dare Challenge.

I can’t wait to see what you create!

If you have been reading any of my postings, you know that I missed out on creating for Christmas, so, since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I am just paper crafting away for the holiday. To make the creating even more fun, I get to play with the delightful Heart Happy products. Not only did I make a Love-ly Valentine Banner with these, I created also this adorable Do Small Things Quotable Frame for my “office” which coincidentally happens to be decorated in Teal and Red.

The base for this project is a 7gypsies Solo Shadowbox Tray that can be found on Amazon or at any craft store. I found mine with all the “vintageish” items in the paper crafting section. I like the 6½” size because it wasn’t too small to require tweezers and not too big to have to fill the space. (Sometimes my creative brain just can’t handle too much space to fill.)

I had some leftover Tags, Stitched Hearts, Happy Heart stickers and paper scraps from my Love-ly Banner that I layered into the frame using Foam Tape and some stitching. (I love projects that use leftovers.)

To complete the project, I added a little bow using some Black & White Gingham Ribbon from the Short Story Album Kit. Simple, sweet, and perfect for my home.

Now ‘Hop” on over to Janet Royer’s blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting tips and other fun ideas.

I can’t wait to see what you create!
