Packaging Sweet Treats for Valentine’s Day

Share this!

I sent some of my favorite stamps that I design for Expressionery to the awesome peeps on my Laura Kelly Design Team at the beginning of the month. Full disclosure, Expressionery provided the stamps for me to give away which was totally awesome. I always love to see how others use the stamps and gosh, these ideas are awesome. Packaging sweet treats for Valentine’s Day and really every single day makes me so happy. To know me is to understand that I am a total pushover for cute packaging.

What is expressionery?

Expressionery is an online shopping site that features personalized notes, stamps, labels and more.  I have been licensing art for their products for a LONG time and I love it so much.  With a strong stationery background, this is a natural fit for me.  The stamps that werer sent to my design team all had the baking theme going.

What did the team create?

Beth Watson (Creatively Beth) seems to always come up with the most darlingest of things.  I love her sweet treat and her packaging using the stamp from expressionery.

Amy Latta blogs over at Amy Latta Creations.  If you are a fan of hand lettering, she is an expert and then some.  She has a kiddo who LOVES (and I mean LOVES) to bake so I had the stamp made for him. He was so excited he used it to make himself business cards!  Hop over to her blog to see her adorable and super-easy treat bags.

Blanca blogs over at Creativities Galore.  She used her stamp with heart shaped brownies.  They look delicious to say the least.  Of course packaging sweet treats with bakers twine gets me ready to celebrate!

Debra Quartermain has the most darling bed and breakfast.  She used her stamp to make heart shaped tags that surely will spread love with her guests.  I love it that she used the heart die that I designed for Sizzix too in making the tags.  Her muffins look so yummy.  I have been there and can promise you that her baking is top notch.

Ten Reasons to Craft

I am going to say this again.  Crafting is just a great idea.  It is proven that crafting can be really good for mental and emotional health.  Studies show that making and crafting can lower anxiety.  Another benefit to crafting is that it creates connection.  When we make things and give them to others, we spread kindness and love.  Here are my top ten reasons to craft with kids, and I mean kids of all ages.

  1. Mental Health Benefits – Crafting puts me in a good mood.
  2. Self Expression – Crafting allows me to express myself.
  3. Education and Growth – I learn new skills by making things.
  4. Connection – Crafting connects me others through workshops, classes and gifting.
  5. Decor – Through making and crafting, I can totally customize every aspect of my decor.
  6. Gift Giving – Gifts is totally my love language.  I love to make handmade gifts.
  7. Offline Time – Crafting keeps me off of my phone and social media. We all know this can be beneficial.
  8. Income – Because I craft and sell items that I make, I have an additional income source.
  9. Fun – I like to have fun and to me, making things is fun.
  10. Socializing – Attending events where crafting is a part gets me out and around others with like minds.

What would you do with a custom stamp from expressionery?  Comment and let me know!

Cheers and Love,

Laura
