Today is the day.. it's Valentine's. The Sweet Talk Suite includes these adorable treat boxes. They are the same size as the old fashioned heart candies. I remember the candies from my school days. They were one of the things that was good at the time, but I've discovered better treats now. But they still have a nostalgic feeling. To decorate the box, I wrapped card stock around the outside and then pattern paper on top of the card stock. I … [Read more...] about Happy Valentine’s Day
We are three days from Valentine's Day and I'm sharing the love. Today's card is a quick one. All the little pink hearts in the background are hand stamped, but it's not as complicated as it seems. The stamp actually has three heart stamps all in a row so you aren't stamping just one heart at a time. The stamp set in the Sweet Talk Suite includes several of the candy heart stamps to pick from. I chose the Hug Me and UR Cute. And the … [Read more...] about Hug Me!

Today's project combines the Free Catching Butterflies Sale-a-bration stamp set with the Sweet Talk Suite. Rather than butterflies, the little girl is catching Valentine's candies. This card is one of the slimline formats and it's perfect for the girl with the net and lots of the candies floating in … [Read more...] about UR Cute

I just realized we are now more than halfway through the month of January and Valentine's is just a few weeks away. I'm trying to get some projects made quickly to share with you. One of my favorite products from the new Occasions/Spring Catalog are these cute heart-shaped tins. These tins are food safe and you can bake in them. I filled mine with candy since I didn't really have time to do any baking this weekend. I decorated … [Read more...] about I Had This Lion Around
I am so excited that I get to see some crafty friends tomorrow. I will be at the Just Crop Retreat in Fullerton and I am so looking forward to seeing all the ladies. I love sharing make and takes with them and all the fun new products every time a new Stampin Up Catalog comes out. Sale-A-Bration is also one the best times of the year because of the freebies you earn with a qualifying purchase. This Valentine's Treat Box is one of my make … [Read more...] about Love You Lots

I used the stamps, paper, and heart doilies from the From My Heart Suite and combined them with the Printed Cellophane Bags from the Birthday Bonanza Suite.Just fill the bags with candy … [Read more...] about How about a quickie?
