Here is a little treat holder I made using the SU Apron of Love Bundle.
Just a little unexpected treat you can give to a special person in your life.
The treat holder can hold 3 or 4 Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares nicely.
It is quite simple to make a little box on the bottom to hold the treat.
Here is a video I made to show you some tips and tricks:)

We made this pretties at class last week. Everyone was so taken, as I was, with the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper and the intricate die cut from the So Detailed Thinlits.
I love how you can place the die cut in so many different ways…on top, on bottom, and even on the side vertically as you have probably seen on Pinterest. Such a pretty die that was super easy to cut out. And, oh my, what about those beautiful Falling in Love Embellishments…swoon.
So many sentiments from the So In Love stamp set fit in the Stitched Shapes oval die as seen below, and you can put them inside as well since each is a “a day to celebrate.”
I love how Stampin’ Up has incorporated sentiment fonts from various stamp sets
into a suite like they did with this one from SU Suite Sentiments.
Blessed wishes to you all this Good Friday morning as we ponder and reflect upon HIS sacrifice for us. I am so very grateful that God so loved us that he would give up his very own son for us. And that Jesus was obedient and suffered for our sins on the cross. The story never grows old, it is fresh every day for me, for you, and for anyone who desires to know him. May you have a joyous Easter weekend.
When I think of Jesus, I often think how my mom epitomizes so many of the beautitudes he taught us. She is truly a wonderful woman who raised me while quietly displaying a servant’s heart and an overflowing love I hope I have shown to my children. I just loved the sentiment in the SU Mother’s Love stamp set- a simple yet bold handwritten font – perfect for my mom. I decided to make her a “just because” card even though it is not actually Mother’s Day- we should celebrate moms everyday just like Good Friday, Easter, and Christmas should be a daily celebration!
I used the colors from ColourQ #285 this week. I did not have the retired colors Kiwi Kiss or Cool Caribbean so I subbed in Pear Pizzazz and Coastal Cabana.
This stamp set is a two-step stamp set with the option of adding a watercolor look with the “fill in” stamps. For this reason, you may decide upon the photopolymer stamps for the ease of two-step stamping. If you are a die-hard block stamper, just use your trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect alignment. I also pulled out my Large Scallop Edgelit- I had not used it in a while and forgot how it adds a great touch to a card!
You could also so easily and beautifully color with your Aquapainters and Blender pens. On this card, I chose to color in my flowers and leaves with my Blendabilities (sniff, sniff- love them.) Look at all the stamps in the set…I added in the butterfly from the SAB set, Nature’s Perfection- I thought it was perfect with the stamps! So, if you got it during Sale-a-Bration this year, you can pair it with this stamp set:)
