STAMP OF THE MONTH FOR JANUARY 2011

This month's stamp of the month club is featuring the Valentine Defined stamp set. 

Valentine Defined - Clear-Mount Stamp - Clear-Mount Stamp Set - by Stampin' Up!

How many symbols are more powerful than a heart? Such a pleasant little image loaded with so much meaning, which is why we’ve packed this set with plenty of them. Atop of stems, as leaves on a tree, and hanging sweetly from delicate boughs to spread love all around. One is even to be found in the curvy shape a pair of graceful flamingos’ necks make when their beaks nuzzle closely together. Fill your Valentine’s Day cards and love notes at any time of the year with an abundance of affection with these tender, full of heart images.

Here are the projects we will be completing at this month's club:
