Love Notes

Hello Friends

Happy almost Valentine's Day!

Are you one of those people who loves Valentine's day?? or not so much? Me I am in the middle! It is a wee bit too commercial for me. I do like presents though ha :) 

 I wanted to do something a wee but different for my husband this year. I did buy a present for him but also wanted to make something a bit more personal. So I made him a jar of love notes. I saw various forms of this idea on Pinterest but I came up with my own version.

The jar is an empty gelato container. I made a label for it using this distressed stamp from the Trust Your Soul kit. I stamped the LVE in black and heat embossed the heart with red embossing powder. I then layered it on to red and black card. Finally I tied some twine around the lid to finish the outside of the jar.

 I typed up a lots of love notes the top note reads.

 I love you because......

It is followed by lots of wee notes like this that I typed up for him :) I also added some stamped sentiments from the No Remedy For Love kit.  It is a lovely love themed kit that worked perfect for this project.

I hope you like my Jar of Love! Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Craft Stamper May Challenge

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is doing ok during this crazy time.  I just wanted to remind you that we are still running the Craft Stamper Challenges.  The May challenge is well underway but you still have time to come and join in.  Here is my card I made for this month's project.  I made this clean and simple floral card with Unity stamps.  I used two different kits to create this card. The jar with the flowers is from the  Strength & Wisdom  stamp set and the sentiment is from the kit called  His Words .  I kept my card really clean and just used my watercolors to colour the flowers and jar then tied a little twine around it to finish it off. If you have the time come and play along with us this month.  You can use any stamps you wish on your project.  Here is the prize we have on offer this month this fab Eileen Hull die.  All of the details of the challenge can be found on the  Craft Stamper Blog . Hope to see your project

Unity & Misti Blog Hop

Hello My lovelies :) Welcome to the Unity and Misti blog hop! I  hope you are enjoying seeing all of the projects so far. I just had my first wee play with the Misti tool the other day. It is a very new to me tool and wow do I LOVE it!! It is awesome! Just for the simplest of things like positioning a stamp.  One time is all you need with the Misti!! I am not one of those crafters that gets my stamped images crisp first time. I usually have wasted a card or two before I end up with a perfect image. This tool totally eliminates all of that.  Here is my very first card that I made with the Misti tool and Unity stamps.  I used a stamp called  Scattered Pieces . I LOVE this stamp and the sentiments that come with it.  I positioned the feather and the sentiment at the same time on the Misti.  I totally love that you can do that too!  It lets you stamp several at once instead of just eye balling it and hoping it works out!
