Before I start this post – I have a confession to make:
I. CAN’T. DO. EVERYTHING.
I told myself I could BUT then found out I lied!!!
I am SO SORRY to have been lacking in the Commenting area – I know that I have not done well with that and have fallen GROSSLY behind!! I am OVERWHELMED and want to just start a fresh, clean slate!! I love all your blogs and love seeing what delights you dazzle us with and sharing with you what I enjoyed makes me happy so I will try to be better!! Thank you for your understanding!!
On that note, let me add — I am blogging from bed today about my Retreat because I seem to have caught some kind of yucky flu bug!! Luckily pictures are all taken – and all I have to do is the actual post part!! Hope you enjoy Day # 3!
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 second four cards –
Card # 1 Love You
This card was made from a diecut from a Pebbles 12 by 12 paper! It was added to a premade card from Michaels along with a pink heart brad!! The size is 3 by 3 inches!
Card # 2 You Make Me Smile
Also 3 by 3 inches this card features another die cut from the same Pebbles 12 by 12 paper! I had cut some pink cardstock for these cards and used some envelopes that I had! Sequins were added to dazzle it up a bit!!
Card # 3 All You Have to Do is Fly
I feel so repetitious because this card is ALSO 3 by 3 inches and made with a Pebbles Die cut – layered it on some pink scraps from my scrap box!! I think this 12 by 12 piece of paper that I cut everything from is amazing!! I will post a pic at the end of the post!
Card # 4 Sweet
Made from a premade tab note – 2 by 3 inch size! I added Gold paper and a wood button from American Crafts that said Sweet on it – I tied some really thin jute twine through the button holes and used a 1″ glue dot to secure it to the card!!
Here is the picture of the sheet of die cuts that I cut up and used from Pebbles, Inc.
12 by 12 paper by Pebbles, Inc – From Me to You from Sunny Side Collection as it appeared before I cut it apart.
Here are all the pieces that I cut from the 12 by 12 paper – From Me to You in the Sunny Side Collection by Pebbles, Inc.
39 cute pieces in all!
There you have it – the last 4 of the mini card sets I created for the Retreat!!
What a treat it was to make these for my friends to use!! They each had a set of 8, of the same design, in their Love Notes Kit!! I love sharing BEAUTIFUL things with those I love and care about!!
I will be back later today with the “corny” treat notes I gave them each day!! Lots of puns and playing on words!!
I am grateful for all the friends I have that enrich my life!! I appreciate EACH one of them, near and far!!
