I heart Hoppin' Hearts or MTE Valentine's Stamp Extravaganza

I used that sweet little label from MTE in girly colors with my
"little notebook" svg.

Welcome to the My Thoughts Exactly Stamp release, if you haven't seen these stamps yet, you are going to be in for some fun!
My favorite day of the month has arrived...MTE stamp release! These amazing sets have been so much fun to work with, she's designed these sets with something for everyone.

Now in order to win the "I want it All"  when you comment on each post you will get ONE entry into the contest- So after you've commented on Kim's post you will be entered ELEVEN times...And any stamp purchase you make on this day you'll get the Love Lable stamp for FREE! MTE heaven! You are such a lucky bunch just like we're lucky to have you....So get on it!

You may think it's only for Valentines Day but there are just so many uses beyond that. 
  Here's pics of some of the non Vday uses. My daughter has always loved hearts so this came at the perfect time. I had a lapse in sanity and I acquiesced to a slumber party- I know! It was all fun and games for the first 5 hours but then when 1:30 am rolled around and those sugar junkies were still up and yelling. I made the vow- never EVER again- EVER will I host a slumber party of 9 girls. Needless to say I was in need of a nap the next day. 
I made these cute little notebooks for the little favor bags
I used lettering delights files Something Fishy and Good Luck Gnomes along
with K&Company Daydream paper pack.

I normally don't get lucky at Big Lots but this time I did, I got a pack of this
uber girly paper pad by Colorbok for 2.00! 

The next time I do these little doodle pads in the number I did, I will use ONE pattern, and not customize them all. I used some Trendy Twine and Twinery twine to match the colors.You can grab this file to make your very own notebooks as a gift with any purchase at my shop.

Here are some little cards I made up just for Valentines day for my little ones. I normally don't like to make cards for my kids because it bothers me to see them laying on the floor, left on the counter, in the dog bed, etc. - you get the idea. My boy is pretty secure in his manliness so he'll be ok with a pink card from Mommy. I made my quasi washi tapes with packing material sheets and tissue paper...
I used a $1 background stamp and the little hearts from MTE  Candy hearts set on packing
sheets and white tissue paper with regular old mounting tape.

The little folder is from quickcutz, I got it from but can't find it anywhere now. I used
my spellbinders die for the insert. Of course the stamps are from MTE.
