Valentine's Mini Mailbox Treat Holder

Hi Stampers! Today, I wanted to share with you these super cute Valentine's Mini Mailboxes that I made for our grandchildren. We have three grands under the age of 2 1/2 but wanted to make them something special from Mimi and Pops!!! I have three Dove milk chocolate treats inside (yummy).

I stamped "love you" on the inside of the flap for an added surprise, when the mailbox is opened. 

This stamp is from the Forever Lovely stamp set. A gorgeous stamp set with the matching Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies! This bundle is a keeper!

The mailbox flag was made from the Classic Label Punch. I stamped "My Love" from the Forever Lovely stamp set and die cut it from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies. The box inside is made with Thick Whisper White cardstock, for added stability. 

I used the Hardwood background stamp on Whisper White cardstock and stamped with different colors. Sponged a little ink over the stamping. I tried using some Designer Series Paper but depending on the patterns, it would be upside down on one side if it wasn't an overall pattern. My inspiration came from Amanda Frankel's YouTube video. Thanks Amanda for the inspiration!

These are so fun to make, I plan on making a bunch in different colors! I hope you are inspired to make a few yourself. These would be really sweet RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness) treats for folks to brighten their day. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Valentine's Day Hershey's Nugget Cake

It has been a while since I have posted anything and wanted to get back in the swing of things! For today's post, I made a sweet, three-tiered Hershey's Nugget Cake. Over the Christmas holiday, I did a Craft Fair and sold several of these little beauties and then had orders to make more!!!

To wrap the Hershey's Nuggets on the top and bottom layers, I used the beautiful, All My Love Designer Series Paper. For the middle layer, I stamped the Hearts from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Flirty Flamingo ink on Whisper White cardstock. The Ribbon on the middle layer is the Flirty Flamingo ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack. Isn't it gorgeous?!!

The sentiment was stamped from the Meant to Be stamp set. I used a few dies from the coordinating, Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies. All of these products are from the 2019 Occasions Catalog. Hope you like my Happy Valentine's Nugget Cake. Thanks so much for stopping by, would love for you to leave me a comment! Happy Stamping!
