As promised I am back to tell you a little more about the fun we had at the Retreat!
Today I want to share about the Love Notes Kit I made for each person! The idea was to encourage all my friends to notice nice things about each other and then tell them in a little note!
The Love Notes Kit looked like this:
And on the back – it had a description of what was in each kit:
And there was also a pen washi taped onto the back
And I closed it on the front with a mini tag and a black clothespin that I added a twine bow and button to!
Here are the mint, toothpicks, and chocolate kiss – this is how I bagged them up
NOW – For the MINI CARDS that went into the kit!!
I made 8 sets of 8 mini cards and I am going to show you 4 of them today!!
A Group photo of the first four cards –
Card # 1 You are the Sprinkles on the Cupcake of Life
Made using 3 by 3 card base and envelope! Used Stampin’ Up!’s new set Sprinkles Of Life stamped images on background papers and cut out with the Tree Builder Punch also from SU! Also fussy cut the cupcake bottom! Added a flower and a pink brad!
Card # 2 “BEE”utiful card
For this little cutie I used a 2 by 3 card with a matching envelope! A Bumblebee Doodlebug Mini Doily was glued down first, then I stamped images from Lawn Fawn’s Bee Mine stamp set on a white circle that was layered in the middle of the doily!! The beautiful word is from an older, name unknown SU! set! Colored the bee in and added a Wink of Stella to the wings!!
Card # 3 Hello, Friend
This card is also a 3 by 3 card with envelope – the bases and envelopes were purchased from Michaels’ bargain bins quite awhile ago! And the hello friend square is from a sheet of die cuts made by Pebbles and mentioned here!
Card # 4 “SODA” lightful
This is another 2 by 3 card – I trimmed a thin piece off the side with zigzag scissors and layered some scrap of blue behind it! Also layered a piece of yellow and stamped the -lightful sentiment in black on it and the hearts in Real Red!! I used the following YNS products – Happy Meal and Fast Food Fun Sentiments Stamp sets and the matching Happy Meal Die Set! Stamped the outline images and sentiment in Versafine – Onyx Black inkpad and used Clear ultra fine embossing powder. Colored image in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and a Zig Detailer Watercolor brush!
