As I was finishing up and thinking to myself, this would be cute for a teenage girl, my teenage daughter walked in and said, "I'd like a gift like this!" Now I know what she'll be getting for Valentine's Day, with chocolate of course! ;)

I prefer to make 3D projects over cards, as you can tell by my blog. Valentine's day is a definite card day, so I decided I needed one. :) I used a heart embossing folder on the red paper and the new Stampin' Up! Hello Life stamp set for the sentiment and heart. It was quick and simple, just the way I like all my cards. ;)

Another cracker! :) I need to stop making these, but they are so fun and easy! This one is much smaller and I used the artisan label punch to create a little window, so you can see the treat on the inside.

Isn't this a fun little treat holder? It's made with the envelope punch board and it's easy to make. The instructions can be found on Pootles.co.uk. She is very talented and has some wonderful projects with great easy to follow videos.

I found this fun idea on Pinterest. You need the two tags die to create the cute little topper. It's a fun way to present a small hand sanitizer and makes a great Valentine gift!

Our weather in Utah was unseasonably warm up until Christmas Day, when it finally snowed. As far as I'm concerned, I'd be fine if it didn't snow again until next Christmas :) But in the spirit of the season, I made a "let it snow" project ;)

There are several youtube videos explaining how to make these crackers. I thought it would be much harder, but they're simple and fun to make. I filled mine with kisses (Hershey) and confetti to bring in the new year. :)

I finally used my Wondrous Wreath stamps and framelits. It definitely takes time and practice, but the outcome is beautiful. A little washi tape and the wreath on a mason jar is a fun way to package a Christmas gift.

I wish I could take credit for coming up with this fun holder for the mini coffee cups. I can only take credit for how I decorated it. I found the instructions on Sue Becker's website at rnrstamping.com. She has simple and easy to follow instructions. Thanks for sharing Sue!

Isn't this cute?! I was going for something completely different and this was my outcome! :) I made a gift card holder with my envelope maker and attached Andes mints for legs. The shoes are made from the top note die. I cut it into four even pieces by cutting through the middle, both directions. I used the 1 1/4 circle punch to cut a notch in two of the pieces. The white piece on top of each shoe is the christmas tree from the holiday collection framelits. I cut it in half, then cut a little from the top and bottom, and presto... fur for the shoes! So cute!! :)

A little holiday cheer! The small Martinelli's sparkling white grape drinks are so darn cute! They make perfect gifts for Christmas, which in turn can be used for New Year's. I've attached a little pouch with a mini Ghiradelli chocolate, for an added treat. I'd keep this for myself if I liked white grape juice. :)

I wish I had enough time to make one of these envelopes for each place setting at our Thanksgiving dinner table. I'd put a note in each one with the reason I'm thankful for that person.
