Heart Shaped Treat Holder

Well last night I had my monthly stamp club and I shared with the girls some exciting news.  It seemed everyone was thinking I was going to have a baby.  No, that is not the case.  (sigh)

Instead, my exciting news is that my stamp room is being moved from the upstairs to the downstairs and will be about twice as big.  I have drawn up my layout, purchased pantry cupboards on sale and on the hunt for the right furniture that will fit the room.  Once complete I should be able to have about 3 tables that would fit (comfortably) 6 people each.  That means no more stamp club on the main floor in two rooms. Woo hoo!  I can also have larger groups than before and I won't be running up and down the stairs when I forget one thing (or two or three or four - LOL)  In the winter when we get a chill, no problem, there is a nice stone fireplace to keep us cozy.  I am so excited and can't wait to begin putting the cupboards together and start moving.  Two things I am looking for are 2 or 3 white folding craft tables with SMOOTH tops, as well as folding chairs.  I have two craft tables already but they have the rough patterned tops :(  Once I can replace them I will be selling the 'old' ones. 

Once I get the new room set up and organized I will take some pics and show them on the blog.

Okay so enough chatting about my new stamp room and on to today's project.  I would love to claim this idea as my own but I can't.  I CASE'd this design from Deanna at DeStampinCorner.  I changed up the embellishments a tad to make it my own.  This was a simple sweet treat holder.  For stamp club, I had the girls fill a small cellophane bag with cinnamon hearts and candies to put inside.

Thanks for looking.
Margaret :)
