Monday Makes

Here it is the beginning of a new work week and I have the pleasure of bringing you another edition of Monday Makes. This week Leonie from Stamp A Latte and I decided to use the Just Sayin’ Stamp Set which co-ordinates with the Word Bubble Framelit Dies.
My fist share shows you a quick way to dress up the Tag A Bag that’s available. You can also purchase an accessory kit for these bags, however I decided to ‘d my own thing’.

I’ve used the Fresh Prints DSP stack, Tea Lace Doilies, Banner Framelits Dies and Just Sayin’ stamp set with the appropriate Word Bubble Framelit Die. This would make a great bag for a quick gift of thanks or for any other purpose. You could put cookies, block of chocolate, pretty cards, papers etc. Dress them up in a male theme and add movie tickets or tickets for a sporting or adrenalin rush event.

My next share is a card. It’s a KISS (Keep It Super Simple) card.  You can fold your card in half and cut 2 framelit dies at a time, thus saving time. This would make a great card for anyone by just changing the colours and the twine to ribbon etc.

The little hearts you can see on the inside come from the Just Sayin’ Stamp Set as well. I’ve used Island Indigo and Whisper White Card; Island Indigo Ink; Just Sayin’ Stamp Set and Word Bubble Framelit Dies. I simply cut a number of the same framelit and mounted them on the card front with dimensionals. A very KISS card.

Here’s another Keep It Super Simple card using Sweet Sorbet DSP, Basic Black and Whisper White card, Basic Black Marker, Stayzon Jet Black Ink, Just Sayin’ Stamp Set and Word Bubble Framelit Dies. All I did here was to use the brush tip of the marker to ink up the outside of the stamps and stamp them on the card front. I used Stazon Jet Black to stamp the sentiment, cut it out with the appropriate framelit and mounted it on the front of the card with dimensionals.

My last project features a Post-It-Note Mini Tutorial for you. This was a fun little project to make and you can use up some of your scraps, not to mention all those post-it-note pads you have hanging around.

Note
I placed the sticky tear off end closest to the centre score lines to make it easy to open and tear off after writing a note.
