Pocket Full of Love

That was the contest name that The Angel Company held for demonstrators. I'm sad to report that I didn't win BUT there were three fantastic Angels who did win. You can see their beautiful creations here.

I thought I'd go ahead and show you my entries though because I, of course, think they are pretty cool! The first one, Love Notes, is a double pocket card front that has a magnetic strip on the back so it can go on my refrigerator. Abby really likes to get little notes from me so that is where I came up with the idea.

Each pocket holds little tags. One side of the tag is decorated using Kid Praises stamp set and the other side is blank. This way each morning when I'm making Abby's lunch, I can grab a tag, write a short note on the back and put it in her lunch box. Here is a close up of a few of the tags:

I used the Miss Moxie Collection and matching cardstock, hardware, ribbon and some Scrappers Floss & buttons to decorate everything. The colors are bright and cheery, perfect for kids!

My next entry is a special card that is perfect for your loved one. I used a template that I found at Nichole Heady's Blog quite awhile ago. The card looks like a tag and slides into a vellum pocket.
I used Rustic Chic papers, Basic Birds stamp set as well as some flowers, buttons & ribbon. The heart is from another stamp set, Sweet Goodies. I cut it out and placed it between the birds. Each bird is paper pieced using Rustic Chic papers. I decorated the inside and stamped one of my favorite quotes from the Life Thoughts stamp set.
So what do you think? Both projects were a lot of fun to make plus they make the recipient feel special which is always a good thing!

I hope you are having a great day! Thanks so much for looking!

Interested in purchasing any of the supplies I used for these two projects? I'd be happy to help you out! Just contact me to order!
