This little Valentine basket was created with the Basket Builder Framelits Dies. For the basket base I used a strip of paper measuring 3 x 1 1/2. It's scored at 1" and 2" on the 3" side and 1/4" and 1 1/4" on the 1 1/2" side. Imagine the sweet little Easter baskets that can be made this same way... and you can be sure I'll be making one. :)

Why not use one of your cards from the Pretty Pocket card kit (free-during Sale-a-bration) for a Valentine card? Most of the work is done for you! The only thing I had to do was stamp the sentiment and add the bow.

Instructions for self closing boxes can be found all over Pinterest. I altered mine a bit. I thought the front already resembled the bottom of a heart, so I used my heart framelits as a template to create the top of the heart. Now it's a self closing "heart" box! I'm so pleased it worked out the way I envisioned it.

As much as I love the little bags the Adoring Arrows, Paper Pumpkin creates, I'm having a great time creating other projects with it as well. Instead of creating the bag I folded it flat into a gift card holder.

The Window Box Thinlits die is so much better than I imagined! I purchased it because it wasn't like anything else in my collection. It's such a great size and easy to decorate. I can hardly wait to make and decorate more!

This month's Paper Pumpkin is adorable! It's great just the way it was intended and would make perfect Valentines for school. For fun, I like to show variations of my Paper Pumpkins and I've made a few, so stay tuned. :)

You're going to see lots with this little guy. He's one of my favorites! I can't get enough of him, so I've been making several little treats with him. This project is made with the square pillow box thinlit. I sealed the sides and left the top open. He's stamped on the back of the box too, with the sentiment "hugs" inside his tummy. He's so dang cute!! :)

Not sure what else I'll do with this stamp set, but when I saw the little truck in the Sale-a-bration catalog I wanted to make one. Of course mine had to be for Valentine's Day. It was time consuming but fun to make. Now I'm hoping I'll find lots of greats ideas on Pinterest for other projects I can make with this set. ;)

The Sealed With Love stamp set in the new Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog is so darn cute! It has so many fun stamps in it, which makes my mind race with so many fun ideas. It's a must to put the hugs & kisses stamp with the lips, don't you think? :)

Yay, onto Valentine projects!! :) I'm starting with a simple treat bag. It has a card tucked inside so a note can be written on one side and a treat attached to the other, a twofer. :)

I'm trying to build my birthday stash for the year. So, I used the Two Tags Bigz Die to create a birthday box. I made sure to use colors versatile enough for a guy or girl. The candle is a strip of designer paper and the flame is the wing from the bird builder punch.

Welcome 2017! As a Paper Pumpkin subscriber I was given an updated 2017 calendar template for my "One Great Year" Paper Pumpkin. I decided to try something a little different with it and made this small matchbook calendar. Now I have a great little calendar to carry with me!
