Valentine Candy Treats

Here are some valentine candy treats I was working on today. I will be using the top one when I go to the Ronald McDonald House to volunteer on the 7th of February to do projects with the families there. It is a box of the candy conversation hearts that has been covered with cardstock and then decorated with designer series paper and a stamped image and punched hearts.
The bottom image is a cute purse containing some smartee candies. I used the scalloped bag sizzix die to make the shape. You can't see it very well in the photo, but inside it says "happy valentine's day."

Valentine Stamp Camp Cards

Shown above are 3 of the 5 cards we will be making in my Valentine Stamp Camp today. The top two cards are ideas I got from the Leadership convention and from Regionals. Thank you to the creators of these cards. (they did not put their information on the back, so I can't give them proper credit). The bottom one is my own creation. There is glitter on the dandelion, but it is hard to see in this photo.

Valentine Stamp Camp Project

This is the project we will be doing in my Valentine Stamp Camp this Sunday. It is a little bag that will hold some hersheys "kisses" and "hugs" candies. I made it using the Stampin' Up top note sizzix die, raspberry tart designer series paper, and the Love You Much stamp set. It's a very sweet gift for any special friend!

Kimono Card

I made this cute little kimono card after seeing a card on the idea board at leadership. It is fun and easy. Wouldn't it look gorgeous with washi paper? I think I will try that next.

I am back from Leadership in Orlando, Florida! I had a great time and learned so many new and exciting things! One new item that Stampin' Up will be offering later this year is digital scrapbooking software! I was one of the lucky ones at leadership to win this! I am looking forward to trying it out when they ship it to me later this year. I have the new Spring/Summer Idea Book & Catalog available, so let me know if you are interested in purchasing one! There are so many new and fun ideas in there!
The picture above is another swap I took with me to Leadership. I have one more that I will share in another post. I will also soon be sharing the cards and project that we will be doing in our Valentine Stamp Camp on January 25th. Check out my website for the details of how to sign up for this camp!

Second Leadership Swap

This is my second leadership swap. I used another one of the new stamp sets for the flower image, and the new raspberry tart designer series paper. I may use this for my valentine stamp camp and change the greeting to Happy Valentine's Day.
I hope to make at least one more swap for leadership and will post that before I go if I have time. Have a great day!

First Leadership Swap

This is one of the swaps I made for leadership. I used the new stamp set from the valentine bundle. (This is a great deal, you get a stamp set, designer series paper, and a triple heart punch at a discounted price. These are items from the upcoming Spring/Summer Idea Book and Catalog. Let me know if you want to know more, or go to my Stampin' Up website.)
I also used the sizzix serif dies from SU. I love Valentine's day, so you will probably be seeing a lot of valentine's cards this month.
PS--today is my birthday, so I am off to have a fun day!

Ronald McDonald House Project

This is the project I am doing with the families at the Ronald McDonald House this Saturday. It opens up and has a slot to hold a small candy bar. It is a very easy, but fun project. It is do-able for all ages!
Have a good day!
