Creative Inking Blog Hop — Meant To Be Sharing The Love

Good evening my stamper friends! I'm so happy that you're traveling the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of January! This months theme is geared towards Sharing The Love!  This does not necessarily have to revolve around Valentine's Day, so I created a project that can be used for any celebration of love or appreciation.  I can't wait to share with you!!


You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Colleen Vassos' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop.


So, to start off this post, I have a confession to make.  I have never created a project using our LOVELY Gable Boxes!  GASP!!  They come in both Lustrous White and Silver, both of which, I have in my stash, but haven't found the right moment or need to dress one up.  Well, here we go because that is going to change!


I am in the middle of designing several different projects as prototypes for my daughter to give little gifts to her bridesmaids later this year.  Yes, if I don't start early, I'll be freaking out later.  These boxes measure 4" x 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" and can hold quite a few small thoughtful items. The Meant To Be stamp set and coordinating Be Mine Stitched Framelits aren't just for creating Valentine gifts and cards.  I have found this bundle to be very versatile and fitting for many occasions.

My new fav product to use in my creations is the Tufted Dynamic Embossing folder and the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies.  That Stitched Scalloped edging is to 'die' for; and the pillow effect from the Tufted embossing folder is super cute embedded within the scalloped heart die.  I am having so much fun playing with the Lovely Lipstick Foil Paper, too.  It comes in a pack of 6 sheets (3 Grapefruit Grove and 3 Lovely Lipstock) and is one of the free selections in the Sale-A-Bration catalog with a $50 product purchase.

All of the ingredients for my card are listed at the bottom of this post.  Click on any of the items and you'll be directed to my online store and add any of them to your shopping cart.  I sooo appreciate your business and for choosing me as your Stampin' Up! demonstrator.



From the bottom of my heart, many, many "thanks" to you for you stopping by to visit me.  I love the visits and wonderful thoughts you share with your comments.  It is always my passion to inspire you with my papercrafting projects.  I hope I have peaked your excitement to get your dreams stamped out onto paper using some of the products that I have shared with you.  I truly live to inspire!! But, if you want to become a "Happy Shopper" and get all of your favorites on your wish list at a discount, you can purchase the Starter Kit and join my Stampin' Up! family...fill your Starter Kit with what YOU want (up to $125 worth of product)!  How exciting is that?!!   I am always very, very appreciative of your shopping excursion through my online store, too.


So with one click you can be on your way to soak in some more inspiration showcasing the assigned sketch.  Your next stop on the hop will be with our very creative, Dena Rekow.  I know her projects will not disappoint...she'll have a beautiful creation to share with everyone. Click on the 'Next' button and you'll be at your next stop.  Have fun filling your inspiration bucket...don't forget to come back real soon.  :)
