Pillow Box Kisses

I have this great sizzix die... it's shaped like a pillow box, but one end is flat so it can stand.  It's called (Box, Pillow).  Framelits dies work great when you want to cut a shape in the middle of your project, which is what I wanted.  The red heart was made with the scalloped heart from the Hearts a Flutter Framelits. I used the Hearts Collection Framelits to cut a small heart inside the scalloped heart. I'm glad Stampin' Up! has so many great products that work so well together.

Heart Tree

Last year around Easter, I found this cute tree.  I had every intention of decorating it with Easter eggs.  But, like most good intentions... I didn't get it done. :(  Luckily the pot is pink, so I decided I could use it this year for Valentine's.  I'm glad I had time this year! :)  A couple different size hearts and designer paper was all I needed.

Happy Valentine's Day Sucker

Did you know if you put two small candy canes together and heat them in the oven for a few minutes you create a heart?  If you put a sucker stick between the candy canes you can create an adorable heart shaped sucker!  I found cello bags at the craft store that are used for chocolate covered pretzel sticks, luckily they fit my sucker too.  I used the stamp from the Stampin' Up! Valentine promotion with white StazOn ink. It fit the center of my sucker PERFECTLY! :) The hearts shapes are created with the Hearts Collection Framelits.

Birthday Card & Cake

How fun is this?!  I've seen a few birthday cakes made with the tea light and thought I'd give it a try.  The matching card was and afterthought and I'm glad I made it, together they make an adorable little gift.

Valentine Chalkboard

After seeing the chalkboard frame in the new mini catalog I knew I had to make one. I had this red frame tucked away doing nothing, so I finally put it to use. I purchased chalkboard paper at the scrapbook expo last year and finally put it to use too.  I absolutely LOVE the Hearts a Flutter bundle! I used it to make my banner.  This was a much easier project than I originally thought.

Two Tags Valentine Box


Here's a fun little box made with the two tags die.  I used the hearts collection framelits to cut a heart shape for the handle.  The stamp is from Affection Collection, which was in the holiday mini catalog.  I hope you didn't miss out on the set, it's great for Valentine!

Jar Full of Love


When I purchased the perfectly preserved stamp set, I envisioned so many fun things inside the jar and hearts were one of them.  The conversation hearts are exactly what I wanted, they're from the sweetheart candy set, which retired long ago. :(  However, they're are so many possibilities and so many holidays, I'm sure you'll find something fun too!!!

Matchbox Chocolates

Here's a "fewer calorie" version of a box of chocolates. :)   I placed the chocolates in mini cupcake wrappers, because I love that they come in so many cute colors and designs.  The matchbox with a clear top, is the perfect size for this fun Valentine sweet.

With Love Pencil

I used the flower folds die and the perfect polka dots folder to make this flower, then added a pencil and dove chocolate to turn it into a fun gift/treat.

Valentine's Day Candy Wrapper

I love simple little treats like this one!  I stamped, filled, glued and crimped a 6 x 6 piece of white cardstock.  I used tiny tags and hearts a flutter stamp sets. The "Happy Valentine's Day!" is from the discontinued, Toucan of my love, stamp set.  The only downfall... it has to be torn to get to the treat.. :(

Rosette Heart

Onto Valentine... :) I'll be adding this fun little creation to my Valentine decor.  Have you seen the new Stampin' Up! mini catalog? You're going to love it!  I used one of the paper doilies they offer to wrap around the base of my jar.  I can't wait to use some of other products I purchased on future projects, stay tuned.

Yummy Container

Long ago, I purchased these cute little containers at the scrapbook expo.  I used ribbon, paper and a stamp from the new sale-a-bration catalog, to turn it into a yummy treat.  You're going to love the fun "free" new products available in the sale-a-bration catalog!
