VALENTINE MINI MAGAZINE NOTE HOLDER

No one is more happy to see 2008 come to an end and a new year beginning than me! I've never had so much drama in one year! Don't get me wrong ... things could be so much worse and I am grateful for the many blessings around me, but 2008 had more than it's share of challenges. I've told my co-workers at my new job several times who I just met a few short months ago, "My life is usually pretty boring, and not normally filled with this much drama. I'm going to have to introduce you to some of my friends who have known me for years to vouch for that!". I'm praying for a drama-free 2009!

Onto the project .... with the exception of a few changes, I cased this Mini Magazine Note Holder from bejoyce on SCS HERE. The Mini Magazine Note Holder was designed by the very talented Becky Roberts at Inking Idaho. You can find her tutorial HERE (Part 1) and HERE (Part 2). Becky's Mini Magazine Note Holders are absolutely adorable and fairly easy to make. The notecards that fit inside measure 3" x 3". The only stamp set I used for this collection is Love You Much along with Candy Lane DP ... both from the Stampin' Up! Love You Much Promotion ... and it used every stamp in the set! (I also used the Heart to Heart Punch from the promotion too!).

RECIPE
Stamps: Love You Much
Paper: Candy Lane DP, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Close To Cocoa, and Very Vanilla CS
Ink: Riding Hood Red
Embellishments: Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Very Vanilla 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Riding Hood Red 5/8" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Pretty In Pink Brad
Tools: Heart To Heart Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 1/4" and 3/4" Circle Punches, Word Window Punch, Paper Piercer, Trio Flower Punch, Scallop Border Punch, Double Circle Punch
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots

Other: Very Vanilla Mini Square Envelopes

Nancy: AWESOME card holder and cards - going to make one of these today! I was thinking last night that my 2008 was a year filled with illness (diagnosed with RA) and sadness (deaths of two amazing women in my life) and I was looking forward to WELCOMING in 2009. I'm wishing you a year of FUN, PLEASURE and MUCH JOY!

Today I saw this post and started laughing because just yesterday I was working in a kit like this one. Just that mine is not a valentines (traditional) one but one with inspiring messages and is green.

I love this mini magazine holder! Mine has 6 cards! Today I need to work in embellishing it. I was tired at almost midnight.
