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.
