Valentine's Inspiration from Kate!

Hi Everyone, I hope you have been enjoying the Design Team Inspiration so far!  I have such an amazing group of crafters at My Craft Spot!  If you missed AllyAymee, Bobby, or Marlene's wonderful posts, just click on their names to see them.

Kate (Small Bits of Paper) has so many fun projects for us today!  Sit back and enjoy - you're in for a treat!

These cello bags filled with red and pink Smarties (like M&M's, but Kate says they are much better!) are way too pretty to eat! 

I love the beautiful rosettes and the embossed hearts!  The "Be mine" sentiment is from the Always and Forever stamp set.

I just love the faux stitching Kate did around her adorable cats!  The faces are so cute!  The card base was made with the Elegant Edges and Plantin' Schoolbook cartridges.  Check out the hearts along the bottom!

The sentiment is from the Build a Valentine stamp set and the Divine Valentine twine is the perfect finishing touch!

These beautiful candy tents are a fabulous way to share treats with your Sweetheart!  I love the button and Bakers Twine on the top!  

Kate cut these pretty candy tents by hand (paper trimmer) and then ran the bases (red) through her Cuttlebug - I love the embossing on this!!  The toppers were made with a border punch.  Simple, but oh so elegant!  The "Sweetheart" sentiment is from the Always and Forever stamp set.

Aren't these just the cutest treat bags for kids?!?!

The darling frog is from the Paisley cartridge and both sentiments are from the Build a Valentine stamp set.

I love how Kate played with the die cut ladybug to make it match her cute bag!  The lady bug base is from the Walk in My Garden cartridge and Kate created the custom wings using hearts from Create a Critter, cutting the larger heart in half.  How clever!!!

 This is one of my favorites!! Check out the conversation heart centers on Kate's flowers!  So pretty and Valentiney (is that a word? lol)!!  The conversation hearts are from the Build a Valentine stamp set and Kate stamped them on little hearts cut from the Create a Critter cartridge.  Love the Valentine Bakers Twine!!

Head on over to Kate's Blog for even more inspiration and a chance to win the stamp set of your choice from My Craft Spot!

Kate will announce a winner on Monday!
Have a wonderful day!
