Today I wanted to share with you a quick teacher treat I put together, with the help of my 2 kids. I purchased 20 of these Lindt chocolate bars on sale and honestly....do not want them in my house. But my initial purchase was for kids...and then I thought hmmm they would make a quick easy treat for my son's teachers.
They were super easy to make and I didn't really have to worry about measurements. Honestly the first one I eyeballed the paper size and then went from there. So the overall paper measures 3Lx8 1/2H and I simply wrapped it around the chocolate bar and adhered in the back.
I used the bundle called Heartfelt, it is part of the From My Heart Suite by Stampin Up, and this came together really quickly. The bundle includes the stamp set Heartfelt and 2 heart punches, 1 scallop and 1 regular.
So I stamped the Happy Valentine's Day on White and punched it with the heart. I also punched a Powder Pink scallop heart and layered ontop of the Heart Dolies. I added a strip of paper 3/4x4 and flagged the ends to add a little more dimension.
And WaLa. After I finished the 4 for my son's teachers, my middle daughter, 13, wanted to make them for her teachers so we whipped out 4 more, plus we added another 4 for the 2 secretaries, principal and bus driver
So 12 in total and made in about 30 minutes.
How great!! Just a sweet and simple way to show our appreciation.
I hope enjoyed my projects

Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Stampin!
The Gang’s All Meer Stamp Set is a fun one to bring out the smiles and you can see its versatility with our projects here. To create a darling valentine, we paired the set with From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Heart Punch Pack, and the Stitched Be Mine Dies. The beautiful For You card shows how to pair sentiments with embellishments, in this case, the Peaceful Poppies Elements. And on our cute birthday box, we combined the stamp set with the Bonanza Dies. There are so many ways to share creativity—and Sale-A-Bration!

Today I want to share with you my projects using the Parisian Blossoms Suite. This is a new suite in the Stampin Up Mini Catalog. You can find information on pages 14-17. Each product in the suite can be purchased separately or together as one whole bundle. And best of all, because of Sale-A-Bration, you would earn 2 free exclusives products, just from ordering this suite. Click here to view the Parisian Blossoms Suite.
This beautiful card below, uses the Tri-Fold Shutter fancy fold technique. It's a little tricky but WOW how gorgeous is this!!!
To make this card you need a piece of cardstock that measure 5 1/2x12. I used Cherry Cobbler.
Now here comes the tricky part. The folding...so we will go fold by fold
Ok so now the picture above shows the correct direction of the card. We need to refold the middle section because right now it all folds the same way. We need to create the tri-fold part of it.
We are now going to take that second score line and fold it in the opposite direction. If you look at the picture below you can see that the middle section, second score line, is now folded opposite.
Now it's time to decorate. I used 3 sheets of DSP. And cut layers to be 1/4" smaller than each section. You can use one sheet of DSP if you prefer. But I liked the idea of mixing it up.
So you will need:
2 - 1 3/4"x5 1/4" outer edges
4 - 13/4"x1 1/4" flaps
1 - 3 3/4" x 2 1/4" inside
2 - 1 3/4" x 2 1/4" inside -sides
2 - 3 3/4"x 1 1/4" top insides
You can see below, that the blue (Pool Party) is that section we went back and folded opposite.
For my embellishments, I used the stamp set and dies in this suite. The Eiffel Towers were cut from a piece of silver paper using the Die in Parisian Dies set, as well as the word Amour. This die is from the same set and I used Cherry Cobbler. The stamped flowers are from the Forever Blossoms stamp set cut out with the Cherry Blossoms Dies. I used the same dies to cut out the flowers on the Eiffel Towers. The greeting in the middle is from the Parisian Beauty stamp set. Stamped in black on vellum and laid over the diecutted flower. As you can see from the picture at the top, the card layers fold nicely!!!
This fancy fold card, took a little bit of work, but the end result is totally worth it. It is just beautiful in person. Remember you can find all the products I used to make these cards by clicking here.
I hope you enjoyed the cards I shared with you today.
If you have any questions or are interested in this Suite, please contact me and I would be happy to help.

Today I created two fun projects for an upcoming card club! Since Valentine’s Day is a few weeks away, I wanted to focus and get a little head start.
My projects feature Stampin Ups new From the Heart Suite! This gorgeous suite can be found in the new 2020 Mini Catalog! The DSP is beautiful and several of the sheets have a foiled appearance! And best of all you can use the Heart Punch Pack to punch out several of the hearts on the paper!
The card was created using a sheet of Real Red cardstock cut to 5.5x8.5 and scored on the 8.5 side at 4 1/4. I added a layer of DSP on top that measures 4x5 1/4 next I took another piece of DSP and cut a frame using 2 different sizes of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. I cut out several hearts using the Heart Punch Pack. On one of the red hearts, I stamped the dotted outline from the Heartfelt Stamp set in Real Red, the punches it out nd 2 of the hearts are punched out right from the DSP! So easy! The Happy Valentines Day greeting is from the Meant to Be stamp set, which is in the current annual catalog!
This card was so simple to make and so quick that I was Able to
create multiples fast.
Have you tried the Copper Dotted Treat bags?? They are such pretty bags! I don’t know why I waited to use them! Similar to the card, I punched out a bunch of different hearts from the DSP and cardstock and I used the same greeting! I added a little Valentine Cheez-it snack that I found at Target. They are mini bags but so cute!!! Depending on who I give the bags to I might fill with candy or cookies too!! These bags are a great size at 4 3/4x 6 1/2 and are food safe!! I used a retired twine to make the bow and I came across these mini clothes pins I had on hand! I either purchased these at Walmart or A.C. Moore.
What do you think?
Really cute and easy to make right??

Today I have two fun projects for you using the new Stampin Up Peaceful Poppies Suite from the mini catalog. This Suite features not 1 but 2 stamp sets with coordinating dies. I think it is so pretty, I couldn't wait to use it!
The card was made using Rich Razzleberry as the card base and features the Peaceful Poppies DSP. Isn't it pretty? The Happy Birthday greeting is from the new Peaceful Moments stamp set included in this bundle. The flowers and leaves are from the Painted Poppies stamp set. I stamped on vellum with Versamark, and embossed the images in white. The flowers and leaves were cut out using the coordinating dies, Poppy Moments. If you were browsing through the catalog, you may have noticed this card with a different greeting! I actually made a whole bunch of these cards as part of a swap for a Stampin UP group I am in.
My next project is this huge box!!! I love to give candles to friends and families and normally I would just grab a giftbag and add a tag! But I thought what about a box. No problem right?? After a few failed attempts of trying to make a box on my own. I was ready to throw the towel in.
The flower and leaves were cut out with the Poppy Moments dies. I used Poppy Parade, Basic Black, Mossy Meadow and Old Olive. I layered them together and used the Fine Tip Glue Pen on the top of the flower to give it a shiny look. And I brushed the leaves with the Clear Wink of Stella.
I hope you enjoyed my projects. Be sure to leave a comment, I will love to hear your thoughts!
