Summer Love Note Cards with Pouch - Kit in the Mail

I did a class on this project back in April using some other supplies and I thought it would be super cute using the Summer Love Rub-Ons.  I am offering this as a kit for purchase, see below for kit contents.

Walkinparkpouchgroup   

The pouch is made from a 6x6 page protector.  There are five note cards with envelopes in it.  I used the images from one sheet of the Summer Love Rub-Ons along with a couple of stamp sets, scrap strips of DSP and card stock, small grommets, ribbons and the Big Shot with Texturz Plates.

I am offering a class kit to go for this project.  It will include:

1 sheet of the Summer Love Rub-Ons
5 Note Cards with envelopes
1 Baja Breeze Corduroy accent (brad or button)
1 sheet of Cameo Coral card stock, cut and scored for the pouch
1 6x6 page protector for the pouch
1/2 container of Small Grommets
4 pieces of various ribbons for the pouch and three cards
Emailed document showing close-ups of each card and a list of products used.
 
You will need to supply scrap pieces of card stock, stamps and ink.
 
I will take orders for the kit through June 6th.  I will then order the supplies, package them up and have them ready for mailing or delivery the week of June 15th.

2nd Teacher Gift

Here is the teacher gift for my son's 2nd preschool teacher.

Serifalphamrskay  

I used the Georgia Peach paper again and cut the letters out with my Big Shot and the Serif Essentials Alphabet in Old Olive.  The Butterfly was cut with the Beautiful Butterflies die and then I ran it through the Polka Dot Texturz Plate in the Stampin' Up! Backgrounds set.  The White daisies have a Summer Sun button in the middle.

I have one more to show you but I need to get a frame first. :-)

Have a Safe and fun Memorial Day Weekend.
