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

Workshops

I have two (no three) workshops in March that you can sign-up for. I would love for you to join me at the March Coffee & Cards, I Heart Us Scrapbooking Workshop, or Create with Cricut™ Workshop. I also have quite a few $5 Friday Fun Classes coming up. All you have to do is make a purchase on my website and you can take one of my online classes for ONLY $5.00. GO TO THE EVENTS CALENDAR

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.

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.)

hearthappyhopsmallthingsframe-quote-misscarriescreations

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.

Since I didn’t have a chance to decorate for Christmas, I have decided to go all out for Valentine’s Day and create some adorable decorations, like this banner, for my home.  Normally, I would use the Cricut™ to cut out all of my images, but I am ♥enamored♥ by that stitching detail on our Fancy Tags Thin Cuts, which cannot be achieved easily with the Cricut™.

I must say, that I have also been captivated by our Happy Heart products and just couldn’t get enough of those patterns when creating those little flags – also cut from our Fancy Tags Thin Cuts. How cute are those?!

tagbloghoplovebanner-flags-misscarriescreations

Before you “Hop” to Michelle Loncar’s blog , let me show you how you can create this project using our Heart Happy Products and Fancy Tags Thin Cuts.

Paper Needed:  (8) 4½” x 3″ Sapphire Cardstock, (2) 4½” x 3″ Candy Apple Cardstock, (8)4½” x 3″ Heart Happy Paper, (15) 2½” x 1″ Heart Happy Paper, (7) 1½” x 1½” Candy Apple Cardstock

Assembly Instructions:
1. Using the Large Fancy Tag Thin Cut, cut out the (2) 4½” x 3″ Candy Apple and (8) 4½” x 3″ Heart Happy paper tags.
2. To create the layered Hearts, cut a 1¾” Stitched Heart from the Candy Apple tags. Place the Candy Apple Tag on top of the Heart Happy paper tag, and temporary adhere the heart in place. This allows you to line up the Larger Heart Thin Cut around the smaller one, tape in place (♥love Post-It Tape for this), and cut out the other image.


3. Adhere the Heart Happy Paper Tags onto the (8) 4½” x 3″ pieces of Sapphire Cardstock. Hand trim to create a small border.
4. Decorate each tag as you see fit using Heart Happy Stickers, Cut-Apart Images, Candy Apple Striped RibbonSilver Embellishing Thread, or Silver Glitter Gems.


5. To create the flags, cut out the small Banner Thin Cut from the (15) 2½” x 1″ Heart Happy Paper.  Fold the top down and glue onto Mink Twine. If desired, cut out Stitched Hearts from the (7) 1½” x 1½” pieces Candy Apple Cardstock and place between the flags.

6. To hang it, use our Paper Piercing Tool Kit to poke holes at the top of each tag and threaded Mink Twine through.

Add some bows and more gems, and you have a cute Valentine Banner for your home. This is what mine looks like hung in my craft room.  Isn’t it just ♥precious♥?!
