Gifts From the Heart

Hello, Gorgeouses!

I wanted to work up a little birthday gift for my wonderful sister. She shares my appreciation for beautiful stationary, so I wanted to make up a batch of "Thank You" notes that she would enjoy using.

Stephanie Barnard's "Flip-Its" cards by Sizzix are quick and easy to produce, which allowed afforded me the luxury of preparing a whole set, personalized just for her.

I was thankful for the Sizzix framelits, because I could tell where the cut line was going to be - right on the inside edge. That way, I could ensure which size die would be a perfect fit. I REALLY was down to the last of yhe coordinating scraps, so there was no room for error.

One tool I was thankful to have on hand was ScraPerfect's "Perfect Crafting Pouch." It really helped keep my embossing powder in check as I prepared to heat emboss, after I had already covered the paper full of various other inks.

What do you think? A great little package, don't you think? What have you made up for YOUR friends and family lately?

Happy Day, Laurel
