Breaking out of the 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ box

I love Love Notes.

What are they? They are 3 x 3 inch notes that
Stampin’ Up! sells with envelopes. And they are truly *fun* to design.
We get so locked into that standard size we all make that when you get
a chance to break out and do something a little different, it is
incredibly freeing!

This next month, you’ll be able to get the
Love Notes in 3 of the new In Colors. I had to do the swap for my
upline’s meeting tonight, so I decided to use the new Quick Cards set
which I had bought and not played with nearly enough. At first I made
this card:


And I like it, but I didn’t really want to make multiples of this.
Mostly because of that teeny piece of wire I used to make the ornament
loop and because the Crosshatch background is embossed. More work than
I wanted to do.

 

 

 


So instead, I made this. It’s a Love Note that isn’t one…I didn’t
prepurchase the Love Notes in the Holiday Mini. Instead I had the new 3
1/8" x 3 1/8" envelopes and they are Whisper White instead of the ivory
in the Holiday Mini Love Notes. Isn’t it CUTE?!?!?! These little notes
are just cunning in person; seeing a picture just doesn’t do it.

 

I
got a few Love Notes the last time they were offered in the Winter Mini
from the ControlFreaks Swappers and before that I couldn’t see the
point, but once I got them in my hot little hands, I fell in love.
