Valentine Bag Toppers...

One my New Year's Resolutions was to get things back on course and enjoy what l love! When I started out paper crafting, it was ALL about scrap booking. As I was browsing through some old photos (the kid's baby books!) the other day I realized how much I missed scrap booking! I have my nearly 6 year old's book done, and very few pages in my 3 year old's. Last week I took on the task of organizing all our photos from 2008 and had them developed! Surprisingly, nearly 300 photos only cost $44.00, which would have cost tons more had I sent them ALL in for printing. It was such a "chore" going through all my saved photos, but I picked ONLY the best shots for developing. So, now your asking yourself what all this has to do with tonight's post right? Well, tomorrow evening I'm going to a refresher course on scrap booking and I will be in the company of great girlfriends and LOTS of laughter! I wanted to bring a little something for them and I came up with these cute Valentine choco/heart bags! The bag toppers are cut with my nesty die (the largest of this design) and all stamps are from PTI (Polka Dot Basics, BG Basics Text Style II). The hearts are punched from my Valentine K&CO paper deck. The sentiment is 3 separate stamps from PTI's First Fruit. I lined all 3 stamps up together on one acrylic block. If you have the arcylic blocks with a built in grid, it comes in handy in this case! My cello bags (clearbags.com) are the perfect size to fit 4 Dove chocolate hearts.I made up an extra kit for purchase in my Etsy shop if your are interested. This kit will include enough supplies for 10 Valentine goody bags (cello bags included!). I have already assembled 2 of them, so your work is cut out for you:) To break away from my Polka Dot Basics, I decided to break out my Damask Designs set. I love how it made the whole look more "vintage" when I used SU! classic inks.

Well just look at that Dove Chocolate Information. I LOVE peanut butter with my chocolate! These treats were such a hit on Monday. I was tempted to open them all and steal the chocolates, but I'll share...promise!
