To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.  For my customers, or if you do not have a consultant and see something you would like, you may order from my website or contact me

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this hop goes from east to west and I am the geographic start.  If you started elsewhere, then you came from Kristine of Home With Studio K and you are in the right place!

I loved making handmade Valentines each year for my children to give out to their classmates.  But they are now both in junior high so my little cards with Owl Be Your Friend Forever! and You're Outta this World Valentine! are no longer cool.  I really liked the January Stamp of the Month artwork showing the Designer Creations Paper Bags used to hold cookies.  My husband and children are real cookie monsters, so I though this would be a great Valentine's project.  Here is my version.
