Sneak Peeks Day 2 – Hug a Cactus Today!
Good morning, crafty friends! We’re continuing sneak peeks of our Valentine themed December Release and today we’re hugging a cactus, learning about the birds and the bees (get your mind out of the gutter!), checking out what hearts would say if they could talk, and climbing “ALL ABOARD” the love train!

So now let’s get started with the sweet little cactus you ever did meet. He’s a hugger!
Jen Shults created these adorable little treat holders to hold a Ghirardelli Square (having a hard time thinking of a better treat than that!) and adorned them with the cute little cactus! Wouldn’t these be great for coworker or classroom Valentines?
As promised, we also have the Birds & the Bees! Don’t worry, this won’t be one of those awkward conversations… it’s just the cutest little birds and bees you’ve ever seen!
Once again, designer Jen Shults, worked her magic by combining the cute little birds with our On a Limb & On a Limb leaves to create this lovey-dovey card. And she’s showing off the amazing blend-ability of our specially formulated ink on her sponged backdrop!
“People all over the world, join hands, start a love train, love train!”
(you’ll thank me later for putting those lyrics in your head!)
Isn’t this just the cutest card for a little boy’s birthday!? Michele Boyer got creative with the fold in order to create more space for the train to rumble through town. And of course her gorgeous coloring brings the whole card up a notch!
Next, we have a fun addition to our popular If _____ Could Talk series! Joining balloons, turkeys, bunnies, and more, we’re discovering what HEARTS would say if they could talk. But really, the faces steal the show for me!
Keia’s adorable card also showcases the Stroke of Genius – Valentine set that was featured yesterday and I love how she foiled some of the hearts in the background!
We’re also adding to another popular series (dies this time!) with our Roly Poly – Monkey die and a sentiment set to cover occasions for many of our Roly Poly critters!
Designer Kerri Michaud paired the Roly Poly – Monkey with our Leafy Vine Cutting Plate to create this jungle-rific scene perfect for any child’s birthday. Just take out the hair bow to make it boy-appropriate!
And Jean Manis shows us how the Roly Poly Sentiments stamps can be used with our previously released Roly Poly – Panda to create this super cute treat holder:
Last on the feature list for today is this A-Maze-ing stamp set, great on cards as Keia will show us below, but also perfect for classroom treats with a heart-shaped maze that actually works!
Keia’s card shows us a creative way to incorporate the heart maze into a card. I love her little heart shaker pocket! Note: the heart maze can be quickly and easily die cut with both the previously released Heart Stacklets & Stitched Heart Stacklets.
