I got a letter from my youngest daughters sorority asking parents to send a box of surprises our students for exam week. I added this little note pad holder made from a stamp set case. (And this is the only picture I snapped in my haste to get it finished and out the door!) The background paper is Tea for Two – but from the MDS version. I was surprised to discover that in MDS there is a pattern that has different colors! So I just printed it out and used it. The letters from Letter It fit perfectly across the top. I am so sad to see them on the retired list. They have been my “go to” alphabet for several years. (Maybe that’s why they are on the retired list?)
So I cut the paper to fit the cover of the case – die cut the cute owl again – added the letters and the front was finished. The inside holders a junior legal pad and an RSVP pen with a little left over paper rolled up inside. Valerie had left me comment saying there might be a few more “sisters” wanting the magnet board that matches this – she was right!

It’s another rainy day here – sigh. At least it’s a good day to stay inside and stamp Hugs, Fran
P.S. I Love You has some really nice sentiments in the set. I particularly like “I love the u in us.” Thinking of that sentiment took me to this card – which, by the way, got a very luke warm response from the peanut gallery around here!
The Basic Black “U” is 6 die cuts glued in a stack to give it more dimension.

This week I’m going to share with you some of the projects that didn’t make the cut to be taken to convention. The first is a frame using several new sets – Frame It and Letter It. I’m taking some other large items and this one just can’t go.
The frame around the picture is stamped in Jet Black Stazon and is just two corners- meaning the frame is square, I just used two corners! The lattice is the Lattice die.
The frame was painted with white acrylic paint tinted with Marina Mist reinker and then sanded. The letters are popped up with Dimensionals. So now I have a frame with a cute pic of my youngest!
Stamp Sets – Letter It, Frame It
card stock – Very Vanilla, Old Olive
Ink – Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, Old Olive, Jet black Stazon
Etc – Big Shot Lattice die and Square Lattice embossing folder, Fancy Flower punch, glue gun
I have tons and tons of stuff to do today! The garage sale went great – but it has put me a bit behind getting ready to leave for convention! Enjoy! Hugs, Fran
