Sweet Treats Blog Hop!

Sweet Treats Blog Hop | Newton's Nook Designs

Second Annual Sweet Treats Blog Hop! 

The Newton's Nook Designs Team is hopping along today to share some great Sweet Treats - just in time for Valentines day! Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the whole list and hop along and comment for a chance to win!

For my stop on this hop I created  a couple of fun projects - First up is a fun set of candy boxes:

Valentine Mini Treat boxes by Jennifer Jackson | Hoppy Days stamps by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

These little clear square boxes came with washi tape inside and I thought they were so adorable I should save them - Sometimes being a crafty hoarder comes in handy - they work perfectly for these Valentine treats!  I used our Tags Times Two die set to cut out some white tags and then I stamped the frog and grasshopper from the Jolly Tags stamp set on them. I colored them with copic markers and then added them to the boxes with some twine. I also added a strip of washi tape along the top edges of the boxes!

For the second project today I created this adorable little Valentine treat bag! I stamped the owl from our Sweetheart Tails stamp set and colored it with copics and fussy cut it out. I cut out the large heart using the Darling Hearts die set with the black and white paper and with red. I then cut out a smaller heart in the corner of the patterned piece so the red behind would show through. I stamped the "Love OWL-ways" sentiment and embossed it in white on black cardstock. I just LOVE how this turned out!

HOPPY Birthday!

A Masculine Valentine by Kimberly Rendino

Kimberly Rendino | Tranquil Tides stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

This Fishy Valentine is perfect for that special guy!

Today we have a bit of a non-traditional Valentine Card by Kimberly! She created this masculine valentine using our Tranquil Tides stamp set. I love that fun background she created for the school of fish - and it's so cute how she gave them little heart air bubbles. The tag uses the "You're the only fish in the sea for me" stamp, also from our Tranquil Tides stamp set! Although Kimberly created this as a Valentine, I think you could use it any time of year to send to your sweetie!

Thanks, Kimberly for helping us think creatively today! You can head over to her blog, Kimplete Kreativity to see more of Kimberly's fun creations!

Clean and Simple Love Card by Crafty-Math Chick

Love Bird card by Crafty Math Chick, Winged Wishes Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs

Love birds!

Today we have a sweet and simple love card by Crafty Math-Chick! She used the little word "love" cut out with our Darling Hearts purr-fect die set. Then she stamped out two little birds from the Winged Wishes stamp set  and fussy cut them out so they could hold onto the word with a bit of bakers twine! Such a cute idea! I love the pop of red on the white card base too! Sometimes just a simple card can be stunning!

Thanks, Crafty Math-Chick for the fun inspiration today! To see more details and other projects, you can visit her blog, Canines & Card Designs.
