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! ;)

Love Card

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. ;)

Windowed Cracker

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.

Red candy in a small glassine envelope are stapled inside my little treat pouch.  I used the heart framelits to cut a heart in just the right spot.

Valentine Hand Sanitizer

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!

Let It Snow

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 ;)

Kisses and Confetti Cracker

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. :)

Wondrous Wreath Jar

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.

Joy Curvy Keepsake

I slightly altered the curvy keepsake box by folding down two of the sides instead of having all the pieces close on top.  I love how quick and easy this box comes together.

Merry Takeout

The Stampin' Up! gift bow die and expressions thinlits dies are all that's needed to turn a takeout box into adorable Christmas packaging.  I love the simplicity!

Holly Jolly Kisses

I love these little wooden spoons!  I've added a little washi tape to the handle and attached it to a small bag of Hershey Kisses.  It's a yummy, sweet treat. :)

The box #2 bigz die is the perfect size for holding two mini hand sanitizers and hand lotion.  Now I have a great little gift for a co-worker or friend. :)

Gingerbread Coffee Cup and Holder

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!

Elf Gift Card Holder

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!! :)

Remember my piece of cake box turned piece of pumpkin pie?  Well now it's a Christmas tree! :)

Christmas Cheer

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. :)

Pumpkin Pie

I turned a piece of cake box into a piece of pumpkin pie!  If only my real homemade pumpkin pies turned out this well. :)

Thanksgiving Envelope

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.

Thanksgiving Sour Cream Container

I haven't made a sour cream container in a very long time.  They're easy to make as long as you have good strong adhesive.

Thanksgiving Gift Bag

I purchased the gift bag punch board. Each time I've used it I've done something wrong. :(  This bag looks cute, but it's not done the correct way. I'll keep trying...
