Happy Heart Day: I Freakin' Love You + Sweet Packages

Happy Valentine's Day! I'm not gaga over this holiday, Halloween is my baby. But, I do enjoy making cards and crafts with the feel for it - because although these projects are appropriate for Valentine's, it could work for an Anniversary, or Thank you along with some other occasions too.
I made this card back in the summer - but it was appropriate for Valentine's Day so I saved it to share. I used a bunch of stamp sets to create it... Yippee Skippee and Good Greetings. I was preparing for a presentation at my upline's event last fall and this was one of my samples. I used the technique called "Subway Art". 
It's a really fun technique - for this card, I used a combination of clear and wood mounted stamps, so I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig. I went for a traditional white with some pop of colour with the Real Red, but I had to add some black so a nice contrast!
Stampin' Up! Supplies Used:
Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog

 This is one of the projects we created at my "It's all abou the Love" class last week. This is one of the "Postcard" style cards we made - with a nice distressed feel. I love the cute tiny envelope with the hearts flying out from it... super cute!
Valentine's Day Treats: 
We also made these cute little treat bags using the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack - which although small, can hold quite a lot of sweeties inside. 4-5 chocolate hearts fit nicely!

I made these cute treats for my favourite Senior Peeps at my work! I bought a bunch of the Valentine's Mini Smarties Boxes and jazzed them up a bit with some pretty papers and punches!!
I used the Stacked with Love papers again for these, paired with coordinating colours of cardstock. Added a few punched out images and added some sentiments and there you have it a cute treat for someone sweet!
I just had to put the "Love You" on the Hexagon punch out, since I love it so much! It pairs perfectly with the xoxoxoxoxxo's too = D
This is the template that I made for the Smarties Box, could use for multiple occasions. I added a piece of sticky strip on the right edge, after I wrapped it around the box. I did adhere the DSP before scoring to save a step.
Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping!
