Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Simply Kind People


Welcome to the Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring Sale-a-Bration items! Our February 2021 blog hop features Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world!  Talented Demonstrators from all over the globe including the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia are participating!  Get ready to be wowed by a variety of creative projects and design styles!  You may have arrived from Sandra's blog.  She had a fabulous project!

My project is focused around the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper and Simply Succulents Bundle.  In honor of Random Act of Kindness Day being today, I chose the text "Kind people are my kind of people" for my cards.  My plan is to hand out some of these little Lunchbox Notes today to the kind people I run across.

I used Stampin' Blends to color the succulents.  The solid succulent elements were die-cut out of the Oh So Ombre DSP.  And since I won't be mailing these, I set some of the elements over the edge of the card.

Lunchbox Notes are so-oh cute and let you use get the most out of your cardstock!  Score a full piece of cardstock down the middle at 4-1/4".  Then cut at 2-3/4" along the 11" side to make four Lunchbox Note size cards.  I typically use these for gift tags, notes for co-workers, and of course messages to my kids in their lunchboxes...hence the name of these little notes!

Which color is your favorite?  

You can watch last night's Facebook LIVE to see me put together the Blackberry Bliss card.

  1. Really nice take on that bundle with the ombre paper - love it!

  2. Your cards are lovely and your blog makes me think of the days my kids were younger and I put notes into their lunchboxes. My notes were not nearly as cute as yours, I hadn’t learned about papercrafting in those days.

  3. Great projects, your color choices are perfect! Lunch box notes??!! I need to make some ASAP! Thank you for sharing.

  4. Really cute cards Julia. I like them all!

  5. Love the extra detail from the bow.

  6. I love Blackberry Bliss and Granny Apple Green together. Such pretty cards. TFS
