So I sat down to create the other day and I wanted to make something special for Emma. I was in need of some "me" stamping (not something for a class or something that was on a time line...just something for fun!) So I thought I could get a head start on stamping for Valentine's Day. BUT as I was creating, I started to wonder why I take the time to make these little "I love you projects" for Valentine's and not ALL the time! I've decided that I want to have "I love you days" in my house, at random, for each of my kids. So after I was done making this project I simply laid it on her bed, ready for her when she got home from school. Neither one of us have brought it up, but I know she looked at it. And this makes me pretty happy! We don't need to talk about it, but I need her to know I love her. I'm super excited to do this over time for all the kids (and maybe even Adam too!) It felt great sharing a project just for fun that I made especially for her!
Okay, enough babbling.....onto the "what". This is a little folder I made out of a 12x12 sheet of Real Red card stock. I created a folder that measures 8 1/2 x 5 on the front. Then I just used the SUPER FUN Love Impressions DSP on the cover with the glimmery shimmery heart (Big Shot die hearts and brackets with the glitter paper!!!!)
On the left side I made a pocket at the bottom and then punched out a bunch of tags (From the Two Tags Big Shot die). The I stamped "I love you" from Three Little Words and then hand wrote reasons. I think I wrote nine or so tags for her and dated them. I figure I'll continue writing her little tags and maybe someday down the road it may make a cute scrapbook page, or she'll tuck this little keepsake away and pull it out when needed:)
Then on the right I made a pocket the length of the folder. I thought it'd be a cute spot to write a little message or tuck a little treat in! I love how the glimmer brads make it pop against the DSP. I hope you like today's little project!
In the meantime, have a GREAT day! Enjoy your Saturday....did you sleep in? (I can guarantee I won't be:)
