Halloween Lunchbox Notes

These cute lunchbox notes were running around in my head, distracting me from other work. I had to make them to move on. Of course, my offspring are past lunchbox notes, and I am not sure what I am going to do with these!

The little 2 x 2 inch scenes were on one sheet of Doodlebug Designs Brews and Boos paper. The finished cards are 3 x 3 inches square, and I even had the perfect size envelopes in my stash. (They do not meet minimum size requirements for the United States Postal Service.)

Supplies: paper – Doodlebug Designs Brews and Boos, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Sour Apple, Stampin’ Up! Pumpkin Pie, Taylored Expressions Grape Jelly.

Floral Encouragement Card – Essentials by Ellen May 2017 Mix It Up Challenge

Here is a challenge card today! I had the supplies necessary to participate in the Essentials by Ellen May 2017 Mix It Up Challenge with Reverse Confetti.

I created a masked background (you know how much I love those!), and added a sentiment on the tag.

The beautiful blue ribbon was a thank you gift with an Ellen Hutson order.

Sorry I Overreacted Card

I love all of the flasks in this background paper!

I unpacked almost all of my kitchen last night, and placed things in the new cabinets. A few of the cabinets changed size (or configuration)…not sure if I like how I have things this first iteration. Luckily, I can always try again!

Valentine Shaker Card

falling-hearts-valentine-shaker

I was in the mood for a shaker card! (no particular reason)

The background is ink blended through a falling heart stencil (Simon Says Stamp). The sentiment is a sticker from the Simon Says Stamp February 2016 card kit (Crate Paper).

Here is a close up of the shaker window:
