ATS Wednesday.....♥Valentine Ideas♥.....

This is my second post for today, please scroll down to see the Pixie Cottage's Love Themed Challenge.


Hello again!
I'm back with this weeks All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge, this weeks theme is ideas for Valentine's Day . Now that the kids consider themselves "too old "to take treats to school, I had think about this project a little bit. At the end of the day, I decided to make Valentine treat boxes. Originally I had made three treat boxes of various sizes but wasn't able to capture all three treat boxes and card into the photo. I think that treat boxes are perfect ideas for gift giving. You can dress them up beautifully for a more sophisticated crowd or make them simple for kids. The possibilities are endless here! I feel my
"mojo" trying to return and I plan to make some fancy Valentine treat boxes for a few of my friends.

Once again I resorted to my scrap bin for design paper and used what I could find to decorate my treat boxes. Both boxes are embellished rather simply, I just add some eyelet lace trim. Of course I had to make a card and decided to feature C.C. Designs Honey Teacher Rubber Stamp. I covered Honey's Teachers apple with my sentiment titled "For You". The base layer of my card was embossed with Sizzix's textured hearts embossing folder. I also used my EK Success hearts border punch to embellish Honey Teacher's mat and added ribbon and Kaiser half back gems for contrast.

Be sure to head over to the ATS Wednesdays Challenge Blog to play along with us. Every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered .... but in order to be eligible to win,your card must include a stamp that is sold in the ALL THAT SCRAPS store..Whether it is one of our wonderful in-house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr. Linky by next Tuesday at 10:00pm EST with only one entry per person please! For more Valentine Day Ideas, be sure to check out the ATS DT Blogs♥

Have a beautiful day and I thank all of you so much for your kind and beautiful words of inspiration. Your acts of kindness truly touched my heart in ways that you could never imagine.

Hugs
Risa:)
