Valentine Treats

***This is my second post for the day. To see my CAS-ual Fridays post, please scroll down***
Today, Leah and Josh brought in Valentine treats for their classmates. Leah wanted to make all of them, but there were 32, so she just stuck to her class. I helped her by trimming cardstock, embossing, punching hearts and applying ATG. She did ALL of the stamping and assembly except stapling the names. We were quite the team.

For this project, she used Decorative Love, Hearts Stamp set, Heartfelt Greetings, and Mini Heart for the stamping. I used Diagonal Stripe and Chevron for the embossing. I thought I would let you know that she did not use a stamp positioner when stamping Decorative Love. She inked it up, placed it on its side and then rolled it onto the heart. A few of them had some extra smudges, but not many. I am so proud of her hard work.
I also tried to take some annual Valentine's Day photos yesterday. It wasn't a complete failure, but I do hope to try again today after I pick the kids up from school. I hope to share those with you this weekend. Every year I take photos of the kids for Valentine's Day because it falls very closely to both of their half birthdays. Just a way to document their lives because I also make a mini Valentine's Day album.


  1. Deb, these are amazing. I can just imagine all the fun you and Leah had putting them together:) She is becoming QUITE a good stamper!
    Happy St. Valentine's Day to you and yours. Hope you get the photos you want!

  2. She's so ambitious! I love that....and I love her! These are so cute. You're so on top of things, taking their half birthday photos. I don't even take their birthday portraits! *insert hang head*

  3. Leah is doing such a great job with her stamping Deb!! Did she do her DeNami shopping yet!!??!! Happy Valentine's Day, good luck with the photos ;)

  4. I knew I would find something sweet here today. Happy Valentines day, and I love your project. How nice that you guys can craft together.

  5. These are super sweet! Great job to you both, Leah and Deb!! You *definitely* make a great team. I bet these were super well received!
