Quick and Easy Valentine Treats

So I had to make some Valentine treats in a hurry for my daughters girl scout troop. But I really wanted her to make them so I had to come up with an easy assembly process.
These were so easy to make. Easier with my Cricut Explore & design space, but you can do it without it too.

PS: I Love You Sticker PagePS: I Love You Paper Pack
How cute are these.
Just purchase, Download & cut (by hand or on a machine)
I used this multi-heart with arrow print as my backer paper on my treats.
Cut at 7' x 3.5" scored at 2'' at the top of the design.
Then folded down so the white shows at the top.

Next I cropped the sticker page so I just had the Penguin, a Heart & Happy Valentines set up to print & cut on the Cricut. You can also edit in most basic photo editors and print and fussy cut.
You can see a short Periscope I made cutting some stickers on my Youtube channel here. I warn you it is unedited. Don't judge...lol.

Now the easy part. Just add stickers to the white area.
Then tape in your treats.
And done!

I found these Organic treats on Amazon Prime Now.
Which is a fabulous 2 hr free delivery service from Amazon prime.
Which was perfect since I had no time to run to the store.
They are also available from Whole Foods.
Hope you enjoyed this fast tutorial.

Insta Photo Fun Mini-Album & Craft60 Project

Sharing my project I did for DCWV's CHA booth.
Here is one of my favorites. 
This Insta Fun Mini Album
You can find directions & a supply list at the Craft 60 Project website sponsored by DCWV.
Just a little info about the Craft 60 Project.
"The Craft 60tm Project is a movement dedicated to creating opportunities for crafters to teach their skills to friends and family.  They are able to do this with the help of a particular project; one whose components can be purchased in a pre-made bundle or created from their own imagination.  Project recipes as well as kit information for pre-packaged projects can be found on The Craft 60tm Project website, along with a place for all to share their teaching and learning experiences with the Craft 60tm  community."

These are my two main Supplies I used.
The DCWV Peechy Keen Stack & the Kraft Insta Photo Fun Allbum
Again you can get a full supply list on the Craft 60 Project Site.

I did lots of painting and embellishing. Check it all out below....
