Feeling Creative Today

I have been super crafty today. I got some new class kits from Memory Makers delivered. I can't wait to hold the classes for these. I don't think I'll be able to get the Valentine Card classes scheduled to make before the 14th but there are 3 of the 4 that aren't THAT specific that they could not be used for Sweetest Day (Oct 16th this year).



I also made this adorable Pocket of Love. (I'll be giving this to my hubby on the 14th, ssshhh). It was so quick and easy to put together.

I just had to cut and score the cardstock (4 X 10, folded at the 5 1/2" mark) to fold and make the pocket. Just staple the sides together and ink the edges to distress it.

Cut the cardstock strips (10 pieces @ 6 X 3/4 inches) and staple your ribbon strips to the top. Add number and/or letter stickers to to the strips. And write on each one something you love about your hubby, BF, or even your child or best friend. This Pocket of Love can be given to anyone any time of the year!



And the last project completed today was this GORGEOUS Recipe Ring File. This is perfect for a new couple, or single person starting out on their own... Give it to celebrate a new home, new marriage...
even a birthday or Christmas gift. It was fun and easy to do and you can easily add tons more recipe cards buy just punching  a hole and opening the O ring to slip them in. You can fill in a couple of your favorite (perhaps secret) recipes as a starter and let the recipient begin filling in their own favorites.

These recipe cards are printed on both sides to you can even include all the little details to your favorite dishes. Or use the back to jot down another short recipe or any cooking tips. There is a small pocket on the inside front cover with categories that can be adhered to any card to identify the type of recipe it is. I can't get over how cute this and can't wait to get some of my family's favorites jotted down to hang close by my kitchen work area.



These are some super easy and fun card/paper crafts that anyone can do with the included instructions.
So easy I just might have 1 (or more) to GIVE AWAY when I reach 100 followers!
