MTE February Blog Hop

Welcome to our My Thoughts Exactly February release blog hop. If you are here from Kendra's blog you are in the right spot!
Here's the lineup in case you get lost!
Strawberry milk anyone? Have you ever heard of strawberry milk before? I haven't, but my fiancee was telling me how he use to love it as a kid. Personally it sounds hideous! While we were away on vacation last week I found these little strawberry flavoring straws to flavor your milk! I couldn't believe it so I knew I had to get them for my honey. I also knew I was going to make a treat box using the new My Thoughts Exactly Candy Heart box set! I've been looking for a sweetheart box stamp set to make a shaker card for like a year now so it was a huge surprise when Alyssa unveiled the February release! I could hardly contain my excitement! Since the shaker card has already been made with this collection I decided I better come up with something a bit different for you guys once I received the collection! Hope you like it!




 I stamped all the little sweethearts with my Fresh ink and A muse ink then colored them in with my Copics. After that I stamped the sentiments in red ink. I then hand cut all the little hearts outs and popped them up with some pop dots. The small milk carton is from SVG Cuts Spring Bird houses set. I cut it at 9.8" x 6.6" and that was perfect to stamp the Candy Hearts stamp onto each side with Versamark then embossed with white embossing powder.

I also cut a long skinny strip of pink paper stamped the little miniature candy hearts along the top of the milk carton with Versamark then embossed with white embossing powder.



For my Happy Valentines tag I used the Mini Love Label set. I stamped the label on white paper and cut it out by hand then re stamped it on another piece of paper and hand cut out just the oval, colored it with my copics then stamped the Happy Valentines in red ink. I then popped it up with a pop dot to give it some dimension! I love love love this little tag.

Well that's it for now!!!

Next on the hop is our talented Tracy!
If I can inspire just one person today I have done my job!
