Valentine Treats

It is just a month until Valentine's Day.  You may have noticed that I like to make cute containers to put holiday goodies in.  Here are some of my Valentine treat holders I have been making this year.  I'm still selling my paper crafts at the Winter Market on Fridays here in Clarksville.  I won't make as many Valentine's treats as I did Christmas but I
think I might be able to sell some of these goodies.
I took these last week and did sell some.  It was funny how people would open them to see what is inside.  They are see-through!  I used the printed window sheets that come with the Candlelight Christmas DSP pack.  Perfect for Valentine's, right???

I had to make some M&M filled skinny bags and decided on the 3-D hearts for the toppers.  The Top Note die purses are always a quick and easy thing to make and they are just great for small gifts.  I'd love to get a Valentine like this!
Lots of great things are happening at Stampin' Up this year.  They will be celebrating their 25th year in business in 2013, a great milestone for the little company that two sisters started and operated out of Shelli Gardner's living room with money she had been saving to buy a home.  It started out humbly but has grown and proves to have been a wise investment of her savings!  I think that one of the reasons the company has done so well is the heart of the company.  Shelli really cares more about people than she does about money.  She cares so much about the quality of everything Stampin' Up sells.  And she has always operated in the black.  The company's "Statement of the Heart" is:
To love what we do and share what we love,
as we help others enjoy creativity
and worthwhile accomplishments . . .
in this we make a difference.
Happy 25th Anniversary Stampin' Up!
