Hello friends! I’m Canadian Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Allison Okamitsu, and I’m so thrilled to be sharing some Valentine’s Day projects with you today on the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog. Rather than the traditional red and white with hearts, I chose to create my projects with the adorable Perfect Mix Stamp Set and the colours Pool Party, Pink Pirouette, So Saffron, Smoky Slate, and Crumb Cake.

PerfectMixStampSetThe Perfect Mix stamp set is so adorable, and I had such a great time watercolouring the images. I’ve created a card, treat bag, and scrapbook page to show you the true versatility of this set.


I create a special Valentines card each year for my husband, and this one is for him! However, I can totally envision giving this to my best girlfriend as well. Valentines cards are not just for your significant other, spread the love and send a note of love and appreciation to your friends and family too!


You can create this repeated stamped background by masking the sentiment part of the stamp with a post it note, and then stamping the handheld mixer several times with Archival Basic Black Ink. I stamped mine on Watercolor Paper so I could go back in with my Aqua Painter and watercolour the images with the colours Pool Party, Pink Pirouette, So Saffron, Smoky Slate, and Crumb Cake.

I think lots of Moms would love to send their child to school with cute decorated Valentines treats or show up to the office on Valentine’s Day to spread some love to coworkers, however sometimes by the time we are ready to shop for the treats all the Valentine’s stuff is gone and it’s on to Easter! Well don’t worry, with this cute little egg carton stamp you can totally pull of Valentine’s Day treats with mini eggs. 


You can create this little tag shape with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, and they come together really quickly. If you’re making these with the kiddos, why not ask them to colour the egg carton and eggs? It’s a fun way to get everyone involved in the creative process.

Last but certainly not least, I’ve created a scrapbook page to document the time my husband and I spent working in the restaurant industry together. The Perfect Mix Stamp Set is SO perfect for this. Maybe you weren’t a chef in your past life, but do you bake with your little ones? Once Valentine’s Day is over you can use this stamp set for your scrapbooking.


I hope you’ve enjoyed my projects today. I had such an incredible time using the Perfect Mix Stamp Set for all my Valentine’s, and I hope I’ve inspired you to use it for Valentine’s Day and beyond.
