I threw the whole From My Heart Suite at this Valentine project.  Because the suite coordinates so beautifully, it was easy to pull it all together.

Have you seen the cute heart-shaped baking tins in the From My Heart Suite on page 9 of the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue?  Add a baked treat or some yummy sweets inside and use them just as they are, or decorate the tins for a special occasion.  These were created to give to everyone who came along to the Mini Catalogue Launch Party this month...

Last Friday, I held the Mini Catalogue Launch Party, which was a lot of fun and a great way to start the year!  We had games, prizes and lots of creating.  Look what we got up to...

It's never too early to start planning for Valentine's Day.  Whether you celebrate this occasion with a special someone or share the love with friends and family, you will need a card to write your messages of appreciation to them.  I received a lovely card from the New Zealand Stampin' Up! manager in December that uses the fabulous new Morning Star stamp set in a simple and elegant way...

It's whimsical, elegant, and inspirational, and it's available from today.  It's the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue!  This new catalogue has loads of creative ideas and coordinating products for birthdays, Valentine's Day, weddings, anniversary, Easter, and more!

But wait, there's more!  In addition to a new catalogue, Sale-A-Bration begins today too.  That means when you order your favourites from the new Mini Catalogue (or order from any current catalogue) you can earn FREE products!

The Irish have blessings for all occasions, and here's one for you as we celebrate the beginning of a new year...

A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone near,
A little gift from one held dear,
Best wishes for the coming year.

Here's a sneak peek at an absolutely fabulous product suite coming in the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue, available from 3 January.  It's called the Peaceful Poppies Suite and it includes two stamp set and die bundles, coordinating designer paper, ribbon, sequins, and die-cut printed accents.  Inspired by the Christmas Rose Triangular Tri-Fold Card, I used the Peaceful Poppies Suite to create this beautiful birthday card...

While consumerism runs rampant at this time of the year, it's important to take time to remember the reason why we celebrate Christmas and that it's not what's under the Christmas tree that matters, but who's around it.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.
