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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!!!

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.

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.. :(

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.

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!
