I have so many papers I love and NEED To be using, so today I picked these. I think most of them were Basic Grey.
I used the NEW large set of Bird Lovers Stamps from Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage.
and one of the CS little Sweet Chips Chipboard Frames. Olive Green and Creme de Cocoa Glimmer Mist.
The saying gave me an idea.....
I thought it would be fun to include a CD of some relaxing music for mom. She has a CD player in her kitchen... so she can listen while she writes out her cards. I tucked the ribbon under each side of the brown papers and adhered it well. Then pulled the two ends of the ribbons up through the middle of the cd hole , and tied a bow to hold the cd in place..and make it easy enough to remove.
Here's the box open with the cards in it.
I put a round magnet latch on the box to hold it shut. I put one of the round magnets inside this paper band I made, and adhered the other one to the front of the box.
here's a shot , with the cards taken out.
Simple cards...but I love how the stamps look, just stamped in brown. Like I've said before, I am a huge fan of the girls that can color these images with amazing detail..but I'm leaving that to them. ( that's my way of saying , I'm not good at it). lol
I seriously love these stamps!
again, simple ,...but fun.
I'm thinking I need to make myself some of these. They were quick... and I'm really loving the simple look.
Okay.... I need to finish getting things in the suitcase , and get supplies packed up , so I'm ready to leave for KC in the morning. Looking forward to teaching at the retreat...and meeting all the girls from "The Paper Pixie". ...and spending some time with Jan and Keith.
