Sweet Conversations Valentine Class to Go!


You’re really going to enjoy this sweet little class filled with fun and unique projects!

I don’t normally show the full projects beforehand in Class to Gos, but this one was too cute to pass up! I am sharing one of the projects that we will be making below, it’s the sweetest little treat box with a Valentine gnome on the front! On the back side you will see the “ingredients” for this sweet treat that you can be filled with whatever your HEART desires! The ingredient graphic on the back will be something you can download, and I even show light gray cutting lines so you can cut it the exact size! Also, in the PDF tutorial, you will get the gnome pattern so you can re-create many different gnomes!!!! You can use this pattern for all seasons!

The other projects are just as sweet, you can see that one of them you can add a personalized photo of you and your family member, friend or sweetheart! I LOVE personalized things!!!!! You don’t have to add a photo, you can just add a heart there if you want!

Here’s a video so you can see one of the projects, PLUS I have another sweet make and take used with the products in the class as well.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Here are more Valentine projectst! I LOVE working with Hershey Kisses on Valentine’s Day cards! I made the little chocolate wrap pull-tab by stamping on tissue paper and using Balmy Blue ink!

This simple little treat box (which can be used for ANYTHING!) was found on Wendy Cranford’s blog HERE. I love the simplicity of it! And the outside is just a tag die from the Bonanza dies!

  I LOVE the Detailed Hearts die! Such a fun and simple background!

This one has a heart “peek a boo” window, you can see the front of the cardstock is PUNCHED!

Thanks for joining me today on my blog!

Another Valentine!

Here’s a Valentine card with a fun fold, again, featuring the Heartfelt suite! It’s such a fun time of year after the hustle and bustle of the holidays!

The card fold is just cut down on the score line 2 3/4″ and then across the front of the card.

The sentiment is embossed on the doily, using Versamark ink and White Embossing Powder.

Valentine Card and Treat – Labels to Love

Here’s a Valentine card and treat holder – this stamp set will be carried over from the holiday catalog! YAY! This is a great stamp set to have because there are so many holidays covered here, PLUS it coordinates with the darling Every Day Label Punch (item # 144668).

To make the little treat box (which fits ONE ROLLO!) you make a 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″ square. Score it at 3/4″ on all sides. Cut slits on each side and fold and adhere into a box. Then adhere the jars that have been cut out on both sides of the box!

LOTS of Valentine Sharing Today!

I ran out of time to come up with an original Valentine for my sweetie, so PINTEREST to the rescue! Total CASE of Wendy Lee’s card, but changed the colors to make it a little more masculine. You can view her card HERE.

The photo below is from this morning. Dan is such a sweetheart. He has carried on my papa’s tradition, where HE showers the family with Valentine treats for our kids. Mom is off the hook (crazy hard for me because I LOVE making these kinds of things). But I know it was SO SPECIAL that it was my papa’s holiday and he always got the treats for us kids, and Dan has done the same. Our kids have always looked forward to Valentine’s Day morning with their daddy!

As you all know, I love baking,  and I LOVELOVELOVE that 2 of our grandkids enjoy baking as well! Here’s Stella and Eli baking. Here are some Valentine cookies I made. I am still such a beginner, but really want to get this sugar cookie decorating down! It will take me a long time to get better at this! Any hints are welcome!!!

Here’s a photo of Stella, who made a Valentine for her mommy and daddy when they were on a get away trip. She’s a girl after her Grammy’s heart – she loves crafting!

Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!!!!
