More Amore Treats +
Hearts A Flutter Framelits =
I have SO many ideas from the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference in Orlando last week, but there were a couple that jumped out at me. This is the time of year to be thinking of little treats for neighbors and friends, or for school classroom parties, and here’s a sweet & simple treat to make and take!
The steps couldn’t be simpler.
- Snip apart the pre-cut heart paper (makes 32 large hearts per package) (see the paper online – 129309)
- Glue each heart to the front of a flat lollipop
- Choose the “express” solution or the “artisan” version:
- Express: use the Hearts a Flutter Framelits (see them online - 130159) with your Big Shot (see it online – 113439) to cut small hearts from the other pages of paper in the More Amore Designer Paper package
- Artisan: stamp with the Hearts A Flutter stamp set and cut with the framelits from the Hearts A Flutter Bundle (see it online – 131097) – *LOVE* the chevron heart from this stamp set! Finish up with a stamped Valentine greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (see it online – 127802)
Voila! Happy classmates and friends! Can’t you see your coworkers loving this treat? The More Amore Product Suite (see it online) is chock full of fun coordinating pieces for your projects.

Have you seen the 15 NEW items on my online Stampin’ Up! Clearance Rack? They were added yesterday — so shop now for best selection, since items are available “while supplies last”.
One of my fav items? The Heart Sweet Treat Cups! And on the Clearance Rack, they’re only $0.59 for a box of 12. Use them to make treats for a classroom or for friends & neighbors. Everyone loves a treat!
Here’s a fun way to use your Heart Sweet Treat Cups (Clearance Rack item, only $0.59 for 12 – see them online) and the matching Full Heart Punch (see it online). Did you know the Sweet Treat Cups have the adhesive on them already? Yeah, I know!! They could hardly be easier!!
These use the Scallop Squares Duo Die (120903) for the background, as well as the Sweetheart stamp set (it’s on the Clearance Rack! see it online – 120780). The tiny hearts are punched from the Red Glimmer Paper (see it online) which looks even BETTER in person. Absolutely gorgeous, and a little goes a long way.
The sticks are lollipop sticks from any big box store — just add a little flag banner with a heart, adhere them to the back and you’re set!
One last tip on the Sweet Treat Cups? Don’t overfill them. My strategy is to fill them until they look even, then remove one more M&M. (and it eat — you wouldn’t put it back in the bag, right?) But this way you’re sure there won’t be too much stress on the adhesive on the back of the Sweet Treat Cup.
Need more Sweet Treat Cup ideas? Check a few out on my blog. Remember, these are currently on the Clearance Rack, so they’re available only while supplies last!
Here’s what you’ll need to make these at home:

Once you’ve been “boo’d”, you place a sign in your window so other neighbors know you’ve been visited already for the year.
It’s a fun way to share treats and let the kids go around ringing doorbells and then running away
Here are the treat bags (featuring the Googly Ghouls stamp set – see it online) that we made up to leave on a couple of porches this year:
If you’re looking for a poem to include with your treats, here’s a link to one I found online.
Looking for a fun treat to make for holiday gifts? You know, the ones you always think about making to hand out to neighbors you see at the Post Office, or the clerk at the grocery store who always says something nice to you?
Oh wait – you haven’t gotten around to making those? Really? Well let me help you!! This is a really quick, really easy project that doesn’t use many supplies and is sure to put a smile on the face and in the heart of anyone who receives it from you!
Plus you can make about 20 of them in under an hour. That’s 20 smiles to share – won’t it feel great to share that happiness?

See how they fit together? The Petal Card Double Punch (see it online) is a perfect size for making little treat holders for the “minis” size of chocolates (Mmmmm….).
Here’s what you’ll do (picture yourself sharing these with friends!):
- Punch two petal card pieces for each candy. Place the candy inside one, put dabs of glue on three tabs of the other punched piece. Fold up and hold to adhere.
- Punch out ovals with the Small Oval Punch (see it online) from the Champagne Glimmer Paper (see it online)
- Stamp little trees (or another design) with the Merry Minis stamp set (see it online) and punch them with the matching Merry Minis Punch Pack (see them online).
- Layer all the pieces and put three treats into a perfectly sized 4 x 6″ Cellophane Bag (see them online).
- Tie with a piece of the sweet 1/4″ Sweater Trim (see it online).
- Add a cute little tag — if you don’t know who you’re going to give this to, then write something like “For You” instead of a specific name. Add a glimmer star with the Merry Minis Punch Pack (from above) and you’re all done!
So what do you think? I know you can do it!! If you make little treats to share this season, let me know – I’d love to hear about the smiles you’re spreading! And if you see me at the post office or at the IGA, maybe I’ll still have some left to share with you in person.

Who says My Digital Studio is only for scrapbooking or cards? Definitely not me! When you look back at the MDS projects on my blog, you’ll definitely see a variety of uses: mini lunchboxes and shrinky dinks, to name a couple.
Here’s another idea for My Digital Studio. In my daughter’s 1st grade class, I have the task of providing the goody bags for their end of year party. (wow, hard to believe the school year is nearly over!) I decided to use My Digital Studio to do the names for the bags:
The name were printed with my home printer, and matted on a Top Note shape cut with the Big Shot from Real Red card stock. The bottoms of the bags were finished with a Stampin’ Around Wheel — quick and easy!
