From Christmas to Valentine's Day to St. Patrick's Day...with Stampin' Up!

Do you love multipurpose products and projects? Then this blog post is for you--buy these supplies for Christmas holiday occasions, and use leftovers from those SAME products, for Valentine's Day (reds & neutral colors) and even St. Patrick's Day (greens). If you are viewing this blog post the day I published it, you can get the products marked with a red asterisk (*) at a discount through 11:50pm MT TONIGHT (December 2nd, 2013):

Season of Style Designer Series Paper: each paper has one side with a neutral pattern in one single color! (coordinates with Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, and Crumb Cake)

Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack: each paper has a neutral monochromatic design (Cherry Cobbler stripes, Crumb Cake with polka dots)

Season of Style Designer Washi Tape: three rolls in single colors (Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Sahara Sand)

Stamp-a-Tag Kit: ink and twine in Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive...the "to" stamp even has a little heart shape in it--perfect for Valentine's treat tags! Save the Old Olive striped twine for St. Patrick's Day projects.

* Old Olive Simply Styled Embellishments: Tuck these away to give out on St. Patrick's Day, to make your friends instantly un-pinchable! Attach to a lapel, button placket, pocket, shoelace, etc.

Cherry Cobbler 1" Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon: Christmas & Valentine's Day
Cherry Cobbler 1/2"Seam Binding Ribbon: Christmas & Valentine's Day
* Cherry Cobbler 3/4" Chevron Ribbon: Christmas & Valentine's Day
* Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details: Christmas & Valentine's Day
* Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon: Christmas & St. Patrick's Day

* Snowflake Season Simply Sent Card Kit: These would make cute Valentines, with just a little dressing up. Maybe use the Hearts Collection Framelits to die cut a heart from Real Red card stock to layer over the doily, and then stamp on the included die-cut starburst centers using Real Red Ink with the "Made With Love" image from our new Love You More stamp set (also in clear-mount and French), and layer that on top. Tie the red/white striped twine in a bow at the top, instead of leaving it in a loop for an ornament. Stamp the "love" bird (or other image) from the Love You More stamp set in Real Red ink on the outside of the envelope. Tuck a small, flat candy bar or chocolate square in the envelope, before giving to your sweeties :-)

Merry Little Christmas Simply Created Card Kit: Another cute Valentine, with just a tad bit of imagination, but if you cut away the lower (unseen) part from the red/white polka dot envelope liner, into skinny strips, you can cover each red/green stripe on the other patterned paper strip and make Valentine cards! Use a Valentine's stamp set (maybe choose from our Whole Lot of Love products) on the white banner piece of the card, and save the green/white striped Baker's Twine for St. Patrick's Day treats.

Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack: each paper has a neutral design you can use (Smoky Slate/Coastal Cabana geometric pattern, Pool Party hexagon background), which makes a GREAT background for Valentine cards with a more masculine look--think Smoky Slate or Coastal Cabana card stock hearts. Or, pair with Melon Mambo or Strawberry Slush card stock hearts for a feminine look.

This same idea applies to specially wrapped holiday candies, too. Try to grab those chocolates with the solid color red, green, and silver (or gold) wrappers, with neutral patterns like dots and stripes, instead of purchasing those with Christmas patterns or images on them. If you are making treat holders for the holidays, ensure the treats are removable without damage to the project or the candies. In other words, make treat holders that do not require you to permanently glue down the candies, such as an envelope into which you tuck the treat, or a box with a refastenable or removable device for opening. That way, you can take the candies out from projects you didn't end up gifting, and separate the candies into the colors you want to use for Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day. (Store them in air-tight containers to keep them fresh.) Need some project options? Just email me or leave a comment, and I'll send some ideas your way!!!
