Simple Stories Design Team Hugs and Kisses and Snow Fun Layout and Cards

 Simple Stories' Valentine line of papers, Hugs and Kisses ,is a cheery light hearted paper collection  because of it's bright color palette. It is fun to create Valentine's Day Treats inspirational products:
Above is an SRM pillow box container wrapped in a paper border, embellished with stickers, and sprayed with silver colored Glitter Dust spray. It's filled with chocolates! Below is a Pebbles  treat bag filled with chocolates. I added a bicycle sticker from the sticker sheet, folded over the bag's top and secured it with a red Doodlebug clothespin.
 I used a tag shaped punch to create tags from the Love Letters paper. (They are about 2x3" un-punched).
Above and below tent shaped treat containers were created using 2" wide strips of various pieces of Hugs and Kisses paper, folding them to create two sides and the bottom, filling cellophane bags with treats and putting them inside the paper tents.
 I secured the cellophane bags with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher, and the covered the staples with embellishments
 The 6x6 "LOVE" card was easy to create with the sticker sheet, ribbon, and a
  beautiful Graphic 45 key tied with twine. I secured the ribbon and key with glue lines and glue dots.
 I would also like to share this winter themed layout using Simple Stories Snow Fun paper collection:
 I used their fundamentals 6x12 sticker sheet to add some words and circles to the page, and clear crystals for the snowflake centers. I used a Copic Marker to color some of the crystals a lime green color so they would match the paper.
 Finally, here are a few cards also created with the Snow Fun collection. I love the Snowman icons found throughout this line of papers and stickers:
 I used an SRM silver doily as a mat for my greeting which is pop dotted onto the doily. I die cut the racoon using a Sizzix die, and the large snowflake is also cut using s Sizzix die.
Fawn lawn white dots hold the banner together, a snowflake charm held on with fine floss adds a bit of texture to the card. I also used a Chalksters white marker around the edges of the blue paper.
 The circle mat was created with a WRMK 6x6 punch, the window, snowman, cocoa, and ticket are all stickers from the 6x12 fundamentals stickers. I added some silver/white glitter paper for a little sparkle.
Thanks for taking a peak at these Valentine treats and winter layouts and cards. Remember, you can find them all at The Scrapbooking Studio, Moline, IL
