Lots of Love Buffet Sneak Peek

My Lots of Love Stampin' Buffet is coming up in two weeks!  That means sometime on this long holiday weekend, all of the projects for the class will show up here on my blog and on my Facebook page.  However, I still have a lot of work to do before I can get them all posted.

However, here is a sneak peek at one of the projects that will be available to make at the class, a Valentines Sampler:
Colors: Real Red, Coastal Cabana, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White.  Stamps: Banner Blast, Fabulous Phrases, Occasions Alphabet, Itty Bitty Banners, Perfect Pennants, A Round Array, and Tag It.  Big Shot: Hearts Collection and Bitty Banner  Framelits; Circle & Label Card Thinlits; Fancy Fan, Chevron, Adorning Accents, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Punches: Small Heart, Cupcake Builder, Little Labels Pack, Full Heart, Banner, Owl Builder, Large Oval, 7/8" Scallop & 1-1/4" Scallop Circle, 1" Circle.   Accessories: Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Pack, Neutrals Designer Buttons, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, White Baker's Twine, Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Candy Dots, Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Delicate Details Lace Tape, and Basic Metal Buttons.  Other: 8x8" Shadow Box
Where do I even begin to describe this?  I have seen plenty of these around including one that was featured in the last Stampin' Addicts Blog Hop by Sara Mattson-Blume, but I tried not to look at any of them when I put mine together so it could be original.  You can see from the extensive list of products used in it, it really is a sampler of stamps, Big Shot items, punches and accessories.  I pretty much just pulled out anything Valentine's or love-related and went to town. And most people probably don't think of teal blue/green when they think of Valentines, but I love the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Pack that is in the new Occasions Mini Catalog and knew that I had to use it in this.

I picked the 8x8 size because I have seen frames and shadow boxes this size at two different stores lately and I think it is the perfect size--not too big and not too small.  Each white square is 2"so it isn't a lot of real estate to work with, but sometimes that is easier.

It took me the better part of one day to put this all together, however at the class, you should be able to put it together in under 2 hours because I will have most of it cut out for you.  You will just need to stamp and assemble (or stamp and take it home and assemble).  Watch for more details on pricing in the class information in the coming days.

And I've joined a new blog hop group, The Stamp Review Crew,  and will be participating for the first time this coming Monday.  All the stops are featuring the same stamp set, Chalk Talk (one of my favorites!) so you will see just how versatile one stamp set can be.  We'll see you then!
