The Project BIn ~ XOXO!

Hi friends!

 Today is the day that I post for The Project Bin ~ Yay!
In a few hours, I will be flying back home to Miami
after a MOST incredible visit with some super awesome crafty friends!
Barb is truly the hostess with the mostess 
and made sure we were entertained from start to finish ~ thank you!
Barb, Carol, Darlene, LJ, Jeanette, Terry, Shelly - love you ♥
Not only did we get to enjoy good friends and good food,
we had good fun at Camp Stamp in Oga,
making cards and crafting till all hours of the night!
And there was snow!
Not falling, but plenty on the ground, especially the first
of hiking and exploring ♥


Back to my card:
I'm gearing up for Valentine's and tried using the polka dot heart
stamp from In My Heart from The Project Bin as a focal image
to create 'designer paper'.
I cut a small piece of cardstock and ran that through the Big Shot
with Gina Marie wonky stitched rectangles.
Then, stamped it in 4 different colored inks using the MISTI.
After adding it to the red A2 cardstock base, I used the big shot
again to make a die cut of the X0X0 in the same set.
It's so versatile and there's so many way to use this stamp set!
 Speaking of The Project Bin,
Lookie!  Lookie!
3 of us on the DT were together when the brand new stamp sets arrived
at Barb's house!

Jeanette has the wonderful Kinda Sorta and Barb is holding Hole Foods!
You can find these and more at The Project Bin!

Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
