Stampin Friends All Things Love Blog Hop

I am so excited to be a regular hopper this year with Stampin Friends.  This months theme is Love. If you are following along the hop, you have arrived from Kathie's blog.  Click the previous button to return to her blog.

Don't forget to click the Next button at the bottom to continue on the hop with Twila's blog. There are a total of 15 blogs.

Let's get right to it with my projects.  All supplies are from Stampin' Up! ® 
I created 2 cards and a treat bag that has chocolate Hugs & Kisses inside.  I used the Sealed with Love Stamp Set, Sending Love DSP Stack and Love Notes Framelits from the Occasions Catalog.

 
For this card I love this mini hearts paper.  I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Love Notes Framelits.  Don't you love the new Doilies and the grosgrain ribbon from the Occasions Catalog?











I used Real Red Ink to stamp the cute little squares and the hearts on the little note that fits inside the envelope.  I love this little envelope that is part of the Love Notes Framelits. Gorgeous Grunge splatter stamp from the annual catalog stamped in Crumb Cake to give a splatter background.   

For the treat bag I used the Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bags from the Annual Catalog. I scored 1/2" along both sides and the bottom so it will stand up. I used the Wink of Stella on the red heart to give it some glimmer.  The lips are stamped in Real Red Ink.  I love the new Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon that is in the Occasions Catalog.



I punched 3/4" Circles from the Sending Love DSP Stack and using glue dots, stuck one to the bottom of the chocolate hugs & kisses.
