More Valentine's and some goodies...

So I was visiting my friend Tammy in Everett this last weekend, and she happens to live by a Joanns.  Like right by it...  So I had to check it out ;)  And wouldn't you know they had some stuff that my local store didn't, score!

I swear I am addicted to these $1 clear stamp sets.  I mean really, who can say no to a dollar??

Then I found some more $1 goodies with these wood mounted stamps.  Also all the paper crafts were 40% off this week, so great deal on the punches too!

I have wanted to make some square cards, but I didn't want to spend $$$ on the envelopes since they are an odd shape.  But lookie what I found, and for 40% off to boot!  Plus, the easter cards were only $1, and the Spellbinders template, yeppers, 40% off baby!

Moving right on to the Valentine's cards...  I love this paper stack by K&Co, it is called Ka-Zoo Valentine, super cute!  I got it at Michael's with my 40% off coupon ;)  The sentiment stamp is another $1 set of course!

Have you heard of a "One Sheet Wonder"?  I had a while ago, but never tried it out.  Basically, you have a template to cut one sheet of 12x12 paper a certain way to make a variety of cards.  So I decided to give this one a try, and it was fun!  AND it made 16 cards!  I have had this single sheet of SEI patterned paper for a few years, and decided to use it for this project.  The basic guideline is pretty easy to follow, and then once I had them all assembled I embellished each one with flowers, bling, etc.
