host a Stampin Up Party

Stampin’ Up! Pun Intended goes Valentine’s Ghirardelli Matchbook Treat

Hey Guys!
I don’t have a lot of time right now, life is handing me my lunch! I have to help with Mini Courses at school this week. Next week I have a Valentine’s Day party to plan and attend at the elementary school.

If I owe you a card or catalogs they are out today so keep an eye peeled.

I have a few extra Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs. Do you want one? If you don’t have a demonstrator, I would be happy to send them to you, my treat, just email me.

I am blogging only three times this week and three times next week. I know I have been getting you used to four posts a week. I don’t know if I can keep that pace over Valentine’s Day as a room mom. 😉

Thank you for all the love, support, and patients!

Now on to today’s project. I love this great Ghirardelli Matchbook Valentine Treat Holder because it is so easy to make and it is a beautiful presentation! I used a Stampin’ Up! Host Only stamp set called Pun Intended. Pun Intended is just $9.50, and the only way to buy it with Stampin’ Rewards.

Sale-a-bration is the best time to have a book party or place your order of $150 or more to earn some Stampin’ Rewards! You and your friends will enjoy a free Sale-a-bration product with EVERY $50 you order. Hosts during Sale-a-bration receive $25 bonus Stampin’ Rewards on party orders over $250.


– Remember if your order is less than $150, use the host code: C4K7JP7Q for a special thank you gift from me.

I know Valentine’s Day is right upon us, but I could not resist sharing this fun chocolate treat holder with you. The Pun Intended stamp set is so versatile, I wanted to show it off as a Valentine. THank you for stopping by today. THank you for taking time out of your busy day!

Enjoy the video tutorial and don’t forget to print or save your free project sheet.

Stamping with Stampin’ Up! is a whole new world. I am looking forward to having “go to” colors, stamp sets and tools once again. Right now, it’s all new and exciting for me. I want to share a card I made with Cozy Critters Stamp Set 142214. Cozy Critters is a stamp set for hostesses only. Cute, isn’t it? Cozy Critters was made to coordinate with the Fox Builder Punch 141470 and the Owl Builder Punch 118074 which makes this stamp set even easier to use. I am in LOVE.
