Happy Valentine's day

Hello everyone and thank you for stopping by.  Today I want to reveal what the countdown was for. Last month I finally became an independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and I'm still so excited about it.  I joined my great Demonstrator's Franzi's team and we are going to have our firdt team meeting and event next month.It will be sooooooo much fun.
Okay now to today's project.  The sweet Franzi invited me to her Valentine's workshop and as always I prepared a little hostess gift for her. As it was valentines themed i picked the theme too and do she got this cute

I found the idea and a written tutorial for it on the blog of the awesome Mary Fish.
She used the milkbox die Stampin up had until last june. As I don't have that die I went and looked for a tutorial on how to make the milkbox on my own.
I found a very easy one including a video tutorial (these are the best) from the great Sam Pootles (I know that it's not her real name) and made my milk carton just like shown in her tutorial. 
I added a little bow, that I made with the new Stampin´Up! Bow builder punch from the spring catalog. I used the Stacked with love DesignerseriesPaper and also used the same pattern for the pannels on the front and back of the mailbox. The hearts and the border were punched with the Stampin up heart border punch. 
I just love how this little project turned out and I´m happy that Franzi liked it as well :)

So I used great Stampin´Up resources to make this mailbox for my Upline Demonstrator.  How cool is that, huh?
Let me know what you think of it and please show pictures if you try to make the mailbox yourself. 
Have a wonderful Valentine's weekend and Happy Crafting everyone
Maria :)
