A great day had by all…….

Yesterday (Saturday) was my World Card Making Day event and even though numbers were small we had a great couple of hours together. Until Saturday morning I thought it might just be 4 friends and myself and then I was contacted by 2 members of an online stamping group that I help run who wanted to come along too. I wasn’t sure if there would be anyone coming along from seeing my event listed on the Stampin’ Up!’s website so I decided just to have 10 kits made and if more turned up I had things handy to quickly whip up some more. My 2 eldest girls were glad no one else did as it meant there were kits left for them to make up. Like to see what we made??

 

Love Notes Set

This is a little Love Notes box and 3 matching Love Note Cards all made using the Sending Happy Thoughts stamp set from the Simply Sent Kit – Sending Happy Thoughts which is 20% off from 4th – 1th October ONLY. I kept with the same colours scheme as used in the kit to show some other prospects with the Simply Sent kits.

 

Here is a closer look at the Love Notes box which has an Old Olive base and Pumpkin Pie DSP top.

Petals & Paisley Love Notes & Box

 

Petals & Paisley 3 x 3 Origami Box & Cards

I’ve been meaning to make one of these 3 x 3 Card boxes since receiving the Splitcoaststampers Newsletter back on 14th August, where it was the featured tutorial, and just haven’t made time, until last Saturday night that is. Along with the box I decided to make a set of 5 Love Notes (3 x 3 cards) to put inside using some of the Petals & Paisley Designer Series Papers to coordinate. This box could fit more than 5 Love Notes & envelopes too as there is still plenty of room left. If you’d like to make on you can find the tutorial from SCS here.

You have probably only seen Love Note cards on my blog from Convention or Regionals as I usually find working in small spaces harder than standard sized cards. I had fun with these though and they didn’t really take too long so you might start seeing more of these around in the coming weeks (I’m psyching myself up to not go MIA again….hehehe).

Here are some closer pictures of the box and each card with supplies.
