This card is so plain, so simple and so cute! :)

Heart Pouch

My favorite part of this pouch is the bow. I made the pouch with the two largest hearts in the Hearts framelits.  I completely forgot this bow is in the Cutie Pie thinlits, until I spotted it on a project in the catalog.  I guess that's what happens when you have waaaay too many framelits. Wait! What am I saying, you can never have too many! :)

Valentine Fry Box

I don't like January, but I do like February, because I "love" (pun intended) making Valentine projects!  This is the fry box die. I cut it twice, cut off the front pieces and glued together the two back pieces.

Flowered Heart Box

I used the gift box punch board to create this small box. I especially like how the two hearts with the flower look on top. Pink, brown and red make the best Valentine colors.

Cute Conversations Heart

The January 2016 Paper Pumpkin is so cute! I love the colors! Look how perfect the SweeTARTS Hearts candy match the colors in the kit. I created a pouch by glueing two of the hearts together, but didn't glue the top left arch, leaving perfect access for the candy. The clip keeps it closed and adds to the charm.

Valentine's Muslin Bag

After I created a tag with the scalloped tag topper punch, I chose to use washi tape through the notch on top, instead of the typical ribbon. Oh, I used washi tape on the bottom of the bag too! The only thing left is to fill it up!

Valentine Wishes Box

This fun little box was made with four petite purse die cuts. I found the instructions on disneysuitsme.blogspot.com. She made one for Halloween. I wanted mine to be a Valentine project.

Tea-riffic Tea Box

Don't you think this project is tea-riffic?! :) It's a little box that holds two packages of tea. Unfortunately, I'm not a tea drinker, but my family drinks it. This would be so cute with a scone or cookies! :)

XOXO Gift Bag

This mini Valentine bag is made with the 2,4,6,8 instructions you can find just about anywhere.  It's the fastest and easiest way to create a small bag. I put lots of embellishments on this bag, but I think it would be cute plain, as long as you have adorable patterned paper. ;)

XOXO Shaker Box

I used my Sizzix shaker box die to create this little Valentine box.  The heart folds up into the slot, I punched in the cover.  This way it stays closed in a very fun way. The heart is attached to a piece of acetate, so the treat can be seen underneath. The heart is seen whether it's open or closed! :)

Valentine Cocoa

I'm so happy with how cute this card turned out! :)  I used the new Cups & Kettle framelits dies. They were a must when I spotted them in the Occasions catalog.  The whipped cream on my cocoa is made with the cupcake punch!

Valentine Keepsake

Before I get my January 2016 Paper Pumpkin, I thought I'd make a Valentine project with my January 2015 Paper Pumpkin.  It was my favorite kit of the year! I saw this kit when it came out and was so sad I wasn't a subscriber. Can you imagine how excited I was when I signed up in September and found out this kit was still available to order? I ordered it immediately! :)  I can hardly wait for this month's box. I've seen the videos on YouTube, it's so cute!

Build A Birthday Card

I just realized I didn't make a single card for Christmas. Well, at least I'm off  to a good start with a birthday card, because I always need birthday cards. I'm glad I began with the build a birthday stamp set. It's easy and makes a cute card.

Snowflake Baker's Box

With the holidays over and the snow piling up, it only seemed fitting to make another snow related project. :)

Happy Winter Snowman

I used the Stylin' Snowfolk stamp set on this project. It holds a mini hand sanitizer. The "Happy Winter" sentiment seemed fitting. :)

Because You're So Nice Cone

These cello bags in the new Stampin' Up occassions catalog are stinkin' cute! I'm so excited to fill them with different things. This one reminds me of spring. Maybe it's the flower...or maybe it's the spring fever I already have. :)

Happy January Card

I used my December paper pumpkin stamp set to create this card.  I'm hoping a happy January card will boost my spirits, and anyone else who's not a fan of January, just like me. ;)

Happy New Year Chocolates

Here's a simple party favor for the new year. I found the little gold boxes at Target. The gold is trendy, easy to embellish and fun to fill. Happy New Year!

Just For You Gift Bag

I made a medium size gift bag with my gift bag punch board then used the Botanicals For You, Sale-A-Bration stamp set, for the sentiment.  I love the large "just for you" stamp, it fit perfectly on the bag. The adorable bow paper clips are in the new occasions catalog and made a perfect embellishment. I can't get over how dang cute they are! :)

Merry Mints

A quick last minute stocking stuffer. I wrapped Icebreakers Cool Blasts Spearmint Chews in pattern paper and added a sweet little tag and bow.

Just a fun little treat holder made with the mustache framelit and petite purse die.

Cutie Pie Christmas

The cutie pie thinlit makes a great Christmas box because it has a Christmas tree shape. It's always great when a thinlit is versatile. It's a great way to sell yourself on purchasing it. ;)

Ferrero Rocher Angel

Look at the sweet little angel I made out of a Ferrero Rocher.  I used a couple of circle punches and the bow builder punch to create it. I think it turned out pretty darn cute. :)

Christmas Tree Treat Box

I used my perfect pennants die to create this Christmas tree box.  It holds a chocolate truffle perfectly.
