February is here and love it in he air! I am starting out the month on day one hosting a session of Bloomin' Love Bunco. The end of January was unexpectedly hectic for me so I ended up not having time to prep for Bunco until the last minute which is something I try to avoid. So, I was so grateful for my January Paper Pumpkin kit which allowed me to assemble this adorable banner just in time for my guests to arrive.
I LOVE how easy it was to assemble this months kit. It took me about 15 minutes from start to finish. This paper pumpkin kit came with everything I needed to complete an entire Valentines banner. I copied the kit directions except instead of using glue dots to adhere the small flags between the hearts I used my mini stapler because it was faster.
For my favor and Aloha prize I used products from our Bloomin' Love collection on pages 16 and 17 of our new Occasions Catalog.
The note pad is almost 12 inches long so there is plenty of space to write out your grocery list, "to do" list or better yet to mark down all the fun products on your wish list from our newest Stampin' Up! catalog!
I created the pad by taking a legal sized note pad and cutting it into thirds. Most office supply stores have access to large cutters so cutting an entire package of pads can be done with ease. I featured small pieces of our Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper on the front of the pad. It's such cute paper so I wanted to feature as many different patterns as I could fit on the front of the long pad.
For the favor I filled our new Polka Dot Cone Cellophane Bags with a quarter cup of hot cocoa. I added mini marshmallows and topped it off with red and pink sprinkles. I added a bow and a cute tag made with the Bloomin' Love stamp set.
Here's a close up of the tag that features one of our cute little bow paper clips. Aren't they sweet?
Speaking of sweet, I captured this precious moment of mother and daughter admiring today's favors and Aloha Prize. Zoe's face is priceless and tells me she will really be hoping to be the recipient of today's Aloha prize.
It makes me so happy to create projects that bring joy to others! I also love gathering with friends where we can experience fun, laughter, joy and a whole lot of Bloomin' love!
