Valentine's Workshop

I had a Valentine workshop yesterday and it was a BIG hit! Everyone loved all the new Valentine January collection items. We made quite a number of projects...from cute treats to very fun cards!
I love doing a few extra things for my stamp club members...each one had some special treats at their place and I always stamp the place mat with the theme of the workshop.

Of course we always have some yummy food to eat. I went with the theme of the day...cupid's trail mix from Target and pink lemonade. Mini chicken salad sandwiches, salsa, and mini brownie bites...compliments of  Mrs. C.

Just a few of our projects we made yesterday...we also made the enjoy conversation heart box treat and decorated some hershey kisses and put them in a cute little box.(past blog posts)
Thank you ladies for another fun filled afternoon...until next time...

I was inspired by my sister-in-law, Melissa to make these treats. She made Halloween ones that were so cute that I wanted to make them for other occasions. So I made them at Christmas and now Valentine's them and they are so easy to make! Thanks Melissa for the inspiration!

Amuse studio products:

6x6 pattern paper for the nuggets cut 1" by 3" 
Heart trio die - second largest and smallest 
Love stamp from January collection
Small cello treat bags

Treat box

I found these darling Kraft treat boxes at Michaels the other day. They are already printed with the white hearts. I used the punny Valentine set for the sentiment and the smallest of the three hearts from the heart trio die set. They are filled with Hershey kisses that have been decorated with Valentine can you see that through the clear window. So easy and so cute!

mr and mrs

Linda is on a roll...are these not just so cute?!
I have made these for different occasions in the past...but I must say these are really darling. I have several weddings to go to this year...maybe one of them will have these sitting around their cake table or at a bridal shower....the possibilities are endless.

I was inspired by fellow consultant Angela Kelley when she made a JOY banner for the holidays. I decided to make a LOVE banner for Valentine's Day! I think it turned out pretty cute.
Thank you Angela for the inspiration!

Favor boxes

I found these cute Valentine favor boxes at Micheals! I added a little extra to some of them but not really necessary. I covered two Hershey nugget candies and they fit perfectly inside! Oh and yes I did notice the lips are upside down...I corrected that :)

I found these printed gum balls at Micheals and turned them into some cute Valentine treats. I used a new stamp set from the January collection, "with love" for the topper...easy peasy!

ribbon rosette

I consider my sister the "queen" of rosettes! She can turn a simple rosette into something fabulous! Here she took the cozy back snowman set (now retired) and used the words "in the meadow we can build a snowman" and stamped in on the edge of the paper so that when she folded her rosette the words would be on the outside cute! This ribbon rosette was on the package.

Happy 85th!

It's my Mother-in-Law's 85th birthday today! Happy birthday Mom!
She loves flowers so I thought this card would be perfect to give her. I made it at my friend Gena's house when we got together for card making day. I stamped the clay pot and the flowers separately and then used dimensional dots to pop the flowers and pot. I printed the words out on the computer and attached them to a toothpick and inserted it into the flower pot...just like the real deal!
I love how it turned out. Wishing you a year of love and blessings Mom!
