Valentine's Day idea!

Here are two more ideas to make for the ones you love on Valentine's Day.

You can never go wrong with candy, right? But these new Heart Treat Cups can be filled with any little thing you want! I found some old buttons collecting dust, so I added them here.

But I must admit, I would prefer pink M&M's any day! I love chocolate, and pink is my favorite color! This stamp set, SWEETHEART is available in wood mount stamps or in the new Clear Mount format. I have lots of these new clear mount stamps here for you to try out. The deadline for January Card Class has already past, but next month's class will be held on the third Saturday of the month, February 20, at my home in Covington Park, Apollo Beach, FL. The cost is only $17, which covers all the supplies needed to create 12 cards with envelopes. All you need to do is R.S.V.P. two weeks prior to class, and bring your adhesive.with you.

These cards are quick and easy to put together. Would you like to make some yourself? Just go to my website here and place an order whenever it's convenient for you -- 7 days a week, 24/7. Or, if you'd like me to place an order for you, just contact me and I'll be happy to help you choose the right products you will need to make whatever you'd like.

NEW Heart Treat Cups

Do you remember these Sweet Centers cards from last fall? Well, Stampin' Up! has brought them back -- with a twist. Instead of a circle cup we can now use Heart Treat Cups (Item# 120435, 12 cups $2.95). The Sweetheart Stamp Set is perfectly coorrdinated with the Full Heart Punch. Stay tuned for tomorrow's post to see a photo of a card I just finished making using the new Heart Treat Cups and the Sweetheart Clear Mount Stamp Set from the New Occasions Mini Catalog.
I made this card for my granddaughter, Madelyn a while ago. Now I can use the Heart Treat  Cups to make her a Valentine filled with confetti (as seen here) or any other small treat. When filling with candy or chocolate, I recommend lining the back of the insert with a clear transparency to prevent the candy from melting into your cardstock and leaving a stain. Or, you could possibly include confetti, buttons, hair barettes, or some other treat for your loved one. :-)
