Hi my Stampin’ Friends,
today I have these very pretty handmade Cards with matching Notebooks that I have placed inside a Mini Treat Bag. They are all simple to make. I used Powder Pink for the Cards with a small piece of DSP that I cut from the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper in Powder Pink. I love black and pink together, they set each other off so perfectly.
The Layering Squares Framelits dies were used for the sentiment on the front and the flower comes from the Stamp Set called Flourishing Phrases. I stamped them using the Basic Black Archival and Powder Pink Classic Ink Pads. I forgot to take a photo of the inside but they were also stamped with a sentiment from Flourishing Phrases and inside I made a small pocket which held a packet of Lavender Seeds.
I covered a small notebook using the Bundle of Love Speciality Designer Papers and used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies to make the gift bag to hold the matching notebook. The pretty hearts on the front of the notebook and gift bag are from the same dies. I was extremely chuffed with the way they turned out, as they look so professional. They made lovely customer thank you gifts for this month.
I have placed the measurements below as you might like to make some of your own. They would be great as last minute Christmas gifts and stocking fillers!
Happy Crafting with LOVE from SANDRA xx
