No Stampin' Required but Cuteness Guaranteed!

It's always so exciting to get something free in the mail.  Especially when it is stamp related.  SU! sent all the demonstrators a free sheet from our Love Impressions rub ons found in the new occasions mini.  I have always felt valued as a demonstrator for Stampin Up! and when they do these random acts of kindness and thanks, I feel so loved!  So, I have to use them and share them with you.

To wrap up the week of Valentine's cards, here are 2 cards I made using the rub ons.  They were cased by Sherri Barron and Angie Leach and embellished upon to my liking :)

I am wondering how many people follow these types of blogs, but don't have the money to buy all the products needed to make them.  There are guys who drool over pictures of cars only knowing the purchase of said car is just a pipe dream.  Well, those of you who are on a fixed craft budget, rub ons are perfect for you.  It requires no ink and no stamps.  A great place for beginners to start.  Let me help you get your new passion started.  Here's a quick video on how to use rub ons.
