Watercolor Trio Mini Notes

Well, hi there! I know that it has been FOREVER since I last posted - so sorry! I'm not quite sure I can offer an explanation, other than sometimes life takes over and you just go along for the ride. We've been busy with end-of-school year craziness, as well as some traveling, but I'm hoping things will settle down for a bit so I can get some stamping done. Today's project is one that I demonstrated at a recent workshop. It is pretty quick and easy, doesn't require a ton of materials, and packs a "WOW!" factor.

We made this adorable little box (couldn't be easier - just used the SU! Bitty Box & Envelope die with my Big Shot) and 4 coordinating mini note cards with the Watercolor Trio set. The note cards measure 2 1/4" x 2 1/4". Here's a closer look at the box...

...and here's a shot of the cards. We made two of each design, for a total of 4 note cards. Everyone LOVED it! :)

It's been hot, hot, HOT here and we have yet to turn on the AC. Whew! I'm hoping my hubby can get it done tonight, or I'm afraid I *may* melt. Hang in there with me - I'm hoping to have something new for you later this week. Thanks for stopping by!
