My Little Valentine and Happy Valentine Heart Treats

Today is the last day to order the Valentine Treat Bundle (132771) and the My Little Valentine Promotion (132242) from Stampin’ Up.  With the My Little Valentine Promotion, you get the My Little Valentine stamp set and the Sealed with Sealed Love Simply Sent Kit for $9.95.  With the Valentine Treat Bundle, you get the Happy Valentine Heart Single Stamp and a 50-count package of 1″ x 8″ cellophane bags for $5.95.  Both of the bundles are available in clear mount only.

Today I’m sharing some treat holders that I made with the two stamp sets.  The first treat holder was made using a small sauce jar, I thought that it was the perfect size for a little valentine gift.  I’m making these for the teachers for Valentine’s Day.

Valentine Treats and My Paper Pumpkin, New from Stampin’ Up!

I’m Paper Pumpkin . . .

I come to your door each month (a fully decked-out creativity carriage). I’ll help you to escape your life with some paper fun.

I come in a sweet box, but you’ll really love what you find on the inside:

All the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create pinable projects. Create stuff like cards, journals, décor, and more!

Paper Pumpkin by Stampin’ Up! is a new monthly kit program that anyone can enjoy!
