Lunch Box Notes by designer Patty Folchert

Well it is back to school time, or in my house off to school for the first time! I thought it would be fun to create some sweet little lunchbox notes to include in my son’s lunchbox someday soon. So I grabbed some fabulous Canvas Corp. papers, stamps and mini bags and got to work.
Using the Canvas Corp. stamps and papers I stamped the star and sentiments onto orange and turquoise papers. Then using black ink I also stamped stars onto the white mini bags as shown. Then I cut out more turquoise paper and stamped with the outline stamp for the notes to put inside the bags, see examples below:

Then I cut out banner pieces adding the kraft stars paper as a center strip. I also added silver twine tied in bows for just a little bit of bling. Here is what a finished note looks like:


So do you think your little students would like to find one of these in their lunch box? You decide.

Proud Mama, 
Patty

We'll Be Friends card by designer Lori Williams

We'll Be Friends tag by Lori Williams

I can’t wait to give a gift to my best friend, because this tag is going to be hanging off of it for sure.  I love the sentiment stamp ( LOL, laugh out loud stamp SC0622).  I stamped it with Versa Mark ink and then embossed it with aqua embossing powder.  I cut the sentiment out and then colored in the border edge with colored pencil just to give the edge some definition and pop.  For the base tag I used the Vintologie Adhering Stencil and cover the entire stencil with versa mark and then clear embossing powder.  

Once it was heat set, I used a blending tool and added in various shade of ink.  The flourishes from the stencil remained cream colored while the rest of the tag got blended color…beautiful.  I added some ribbon and flowers to the tag to finish it all off.  Be sure to check out the LOL Stamps, there are some of the cutest phrases and stamp sets, you’ll just have to have.

Love card by designer Patty Folchert featuring Jillibean Soup

Here is a card featuring some brand new Jillibean Soup Soup Staples 3 papers and embellishments with a touch of new Mix the Media Ephemera Pack. Oh and I just can’t get enough of the new Doilies and Woodgrain stamp and stencil set from Jillibean Soup it is so versatile I find myself coming back to it over and over again. 

Love card by Patty Folchert

I could not resist the lovely new circle kraft tags in a love you theme, I used Love spelled out, xo, and the cut out heart. Using the cotton twine included in the pack I added the three tag bows. I made the new Soup Staple 3 paper my card base and added some white paper doilies from my mix the media ephemera pack. Using the doilies from the set I stamped them onto the kraft cardstock using brown ink. Then I started layering, being sure to add backer papers to the kraft tags for extra emphasis. 


A subtle and sweet card was the end result, perfect for lots of different occasions. Really loving these new products!

Inspired by Soup,
Patty
