Can you believe it’s the 4th week of January already? There are only 9 days left in this month and 23 days until Valentine’s Day.

Many couples get engaged on Valentine’s Day and I was no exception. Bob the Builder had made reservations at a quaint Italian restaurant – that’s a feat in itself on Valentine’s Day!  Honestly, I didn’t want to go. I had a horrible head cold and I just wanted to stay home – with my pj’s on  – with a hot bowl of soup. He sounded horribly disappointed when I asked for a ‘rain check’ so I got dressed and made myself as presentable as possible. He proposed right after we ordered our meal!  That was the best ‘sick day’ ever!

Today’s video features the Heart Happiness stamp set. (Those that ordered January’s Studio Stamps in the Mail are receiving it in their packet this month. Yeah you – another idea!)  I paired the stamp set with the coordinating Painted with Love Designer Paper (page 19).  I found the bright colors and foil accents irresistible!  Today’s video is packed with tips.  I’ll teach you how to easily align pre-cut designer paper panels (anyone else have trouble getting them straight?), how to use Sponge Daubers to create variegated colors and finally, don’t miss the tip about stacking Dimensionals.

I’ve included cutting dimensions, pictures and supplies below. Be sure to scroll down to see them.

If you’re drawn to this stamp set as much as I am, then you won’t want to miss my Project PDF Tutorial that features a collection of 4 different cards. Click on the image below to take a peek.
