More Love Notes!

The other day I shared with you a Valentine's Day card I made using the  new Love Notes dies from Lifestyle Crafts...well today I'm going to share a couple of cute little something somethings. You know, things that you might leave on someones desk, or hand to a neighbor, or friend.  It's just a little thing that shows you're thinking of them.  People need the reminders these days.

Ok, so first up is the Heart Box dies...

I only used two of the dies for this box, but I just loved it's simple cuteness with out adding anything else.  Also, imagine that the tiny staple that's on the heart is really two tiny staples shaped like an X.  I ran out of staples and can't find the box of refills anywhere in my studio.  Hate when that happens.

Ok, now here's how it looks when you open it up...see how the to sides of the heart have a notch in them so when you put them together they interlock? It keeps you little treat inside.  :)  Total cuteness.

Ok, so while we're imagining stuff...imagine a yummy chocolate heart in, not this digital one, a real one.  ;)  It would be cute!

Now let's move on.  Next up is the Valentine's Matchbook dies.

Valentine Matchbook - Erin BassettNow I used all the dies in this set...and I even used the main matchbook die twice so that I could use multiple papers on it instead of having it all one paper like the first project.

So I cut out the matchbook part twice, trimmed the heart part off of the yellow polka-dot paper and adhered just the matchbook part of the yellow paper to the front of the heart paper matchbook so that it looked like this:

This time it's the little heart part that interlocks it cute! I die-cut out the little heart from the set out of book paper and added that to it too.

For that doodled heart I just put down the tiny heart die from the set and sprayed some Glimmer Mist over it.  Since the dies are metal the excess spray mist just wipes right off of them with a towle.  Once the spray ink was dry I just doodled around it.  I then added a couple of hearts that I die-cut with the same die and a little bit of stamping.
