I went down into my craft room to make a few Valentines cards for my family.
But after looking in my card stash…I see I have more than enough for this year.
And with my goal to send the cards that I already have, I didn't need to make any.
When I make my cards, I usually make them 5.5x5.5, which leaves me with a 3x11 piece of card stock left over from my base, perfect for a 3x3 card.
I made this card awhile ago but it needed a little something.
So I used my new Teresa Collin's "Love" punch, to spruce my card up a bit.
I punched "Love" 3 times and layered them for a thick-chipboard look to it and then adhered it on my card.
These small 3x3 cards are so fun to make….and a perfect way to use up some of those tiny scraps :)
My oldest daughter Ashley has a love with journals, notebooks and her new love of planners, just like me :)
She sent me a link to a mint coloured KikiK with gold details.
Ashley was trying to figure out a way to justify purchasing this planner ;)
I had asked her at Christmas if she would use a planner, and she didn't think she would.
She really likes how I decorate my planner pages and my fauxbonichi, but she said her note book for work is functional, but boring.
I told her we couldn't have that, and to bring it over next time she comes over.
Which was tonight ;)
She writes a lot in her book for work, so I needed to keep the writing area clear.
So I used washi tape to decorate the top of each page.
Isn't this such pretty washi :)
I also did a bit of stamping.
Because the ink shadowed through to the next page, I would add washi on the next 2 pages.
I hope this makes her smile when she opens this book in the morning at work.
Our cat Luna loves to be around us, especially when we are in the kitchen.
When we are in the kitchen, she is either at her food dish, on a chair pawing at us as we walk by, or on the top of the cupboards watching us eat our dinner.
But tonight, she enjoyed watching Heather wash the dishes, teehee, she is so cute.
I hope you all had a very Creative Monday.
