Stampin' Celebration #39

It's a good thing I have the Stampin' Celebration challenge to keep my blog going. :-) Another great inspiration piece this week! Pink, brown, and Valentine's Day! 

This week I used the inspiration piece to create some little valentines that my 3 year old daughter could take to her preschool class.  She was excited about the pink, and her only other request was 'sparkles'.  I also pulled some inspiration from  a one-layer swap card that I received from my sweet friend Donna a few years ago at Leadership. 

I used the stamp set I {Heart} Hearts.  I stamped the dotted heart with Early Espresso, and the smaller heart with Pretty in Pink (the specific color isn't actually important).  After I stamped the little heart, I used my Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue and went over the little heart.  Then I poured Pink Stampin' Glitter (from the Fine Supernova collection) over the top.  The Liquid Glue held the glitter really well and dried quickly.  

The sentiment is from the set Teeny Tiny Wishes and stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. 

These are really very simple to make little matchbook treat holder.  I used a piece of 8 1/2" by 3" piece of Soft Suede--getting 3 per sheet of 8 1/2" by 11".  I scored one end at 3/4", then flipped it around and scored from the other end at 4 3/4".  Of course depending on the type of treat you put inside, you may need to alter those measurements.  The staple also helps hold the treat in place.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Make sure to head over to Stampin' Celebration to see the other designs for the this week.  Then make sure to play along as we celebrate life's special moments!
