Perfect Mix for Valentine's Day

Hello friends! I'm Canadian Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Allison Okamitsu, and I'm so thrilled to be sharing some Valentine's Day projects with you on Scrapbook and Cards Today. Rather than the traditional red and white with hearts, I chose to create my project with the adorable Perfect Mix Stamp Set and the colours Pool Party, Pink Pirouette, So Saffron, Smoky Slate, and Crumb Cake.

The Perfect Mix Stamp Set is so adorable, and I had such a great time watercolouring the images. I've created a card, treat bag, and scrapbook page to show you the true versatility of this set.

I create my husband a special Valentines card each year, and this one is for him. However I can totally envision giving this to my best girlfriend as well. Valentines cards are not just for your significant other, spread the love and send a note of love and appreciate to your friends and family as well. 
You can create this repeated stamped background by masking the sentiment part of the stamp with a post it note, and then stamping the handheld mixer several times with Archival Basic Black Ink. I stamped mine on Watercolour Paper so I could go back in with my Aqua Painter and watercolour the images with the colours Pool Party, Pink Pirouette, So Saffron, Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake.

I think lots of Moms would love to send their child to school with cute decorated Valentines treats or show up to the office on Valentine's Day to spread some love to coworkers, however sometimes by the time we are ready to shop for the treats all the Valentines stuff is gone and it's on to Easter! Well don't worry, with this cute little egg carton stamp you can totally pull of Valentines Day treats with mini eggs.
You can crate this little tag stamp with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, and they come together really quickly. If you're making these with the kiddos, why not ask them to colour the egg carton and eggs? It's a fun way to get everyone involved in the creative process.

Last but certainly not least, I've created a scrapbook page to document the time my husband and I spent working in the restaurant industry together. The Perfect Mix Stamp Set is SO perfect for this. Maybe you weren't a chef in your past life, but do you bake with your little ones? Once Valentines is over you can use this stamp set for your scrapbooking.
I hope you've enjoyed my projects today. I had such an incredible time using the Perfect Mix Stamp Set for all my Valentines, and I hope I've inspired you to use it for Valentines Day and beyond.
