Going Places, Going and Gone

The hardest part about retired lists are seeing some of you favorite products gone for good.  And it's really difficult when you know you are a craft supply hoarder and you are afraid to use it when you go it.  I'm really working to stop my hoarding and share what I love with those I love so this project applies to both goals.

These little love notes were created for my husband.  Every year for Valentine's Day, I make little notes and hide them so that he can find them at home and work through the day.  Since the holiday fell on Saturday, I enlisted my daughter to help me hide them in places he likes to go.  I about died when she put the first one on the toilet seat!  :)

These cards are all 6 x 3 and folded in half to make a typical love note size. 

Callie also made one for her dad.  Isn't it cute?

  • Cardstock: Going Places DSP Stack (retiring), Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake
  • Ink: Memento Black
  • Stamp Sets: Going Global (retiring)
  • Accessories: 2" Circle Punch, 2 1/2 Circle Punch (retiring), 1" Circle Punch, Delightful Dijon 1" Dotted Trim (retiring), Home for the Holidays Enamel Dots (retired), gold thread, dimensionals, scissors, and adhesive

The 6 x 6 pages work great with our envelope punch board to make great envelopes to go with these cards!

His final present was a shadow box using scraps of paper on the glass and my favorite stamp from the Going Global stamp set.  My husband, an engineer by day and musician by night, is a little figety so I put a surprise in there.  I punched out a bunch of hearts using our small heart punch and wrote 831 on many of them - our code for "I love you".  So now he can shake the frame when he needs an outlet and be showered in love.  :)
