Notecard Box & Sharing!

I was inspired by Maren who was inspired by Andrea to make one of these cute 3x3 boxes of notecards. If you're wondering how to make the box, Andrea has an excellent step by step tutorial on her blog. {The photo does not show true colors.... it looks mismatched, but it's not. }
I made 6 little 3x3 notecards to go into the box. Of course, they needed envelopes so I was excited to find a Stampin Up envelope template in just the right size! I also punched little seals for the backs of the envelopes. I hope my friend will like this little gift.




I dug through my box of "elements" to make my cards. My elements as I call them are bits and pieces of outcast projects and stamped images I haven't yet used. I keep my stamped images in the smaller case and my other tidbits in the larger case.
It includes Cuttlebugged pieces and punched shapes, etc. which recently outgrew the smaller little suitcase I kept them in. I'm really at the point of trashing a bit of it, but got to thinking that these pieces could be someone else's treasure. So instead of trashing them, I would love to send an envelope or two out. Anyone interested? I'll draw a few names on "Leap Day" if I have any interest.
We're wondering if the Nascar race will ever get underway??? And exactly how much interviewing of the drivers and watching of the wet track can they do?
We've spent the day with 4 little ones so I am a bit pooped! I'll have pics tomorrow!

That is too cute! I need something like this for my Secret Sister at church! Perfect timing! And as for the bits of "this and that" those will always find a home at my house! Maybe it's just what I need to get my mo-jo back in gear to stamp again!
Miss ya my friend!

What a cute gift this makes. I think I just might make up a few to give away. Thanks for sharing ~ I also might place an order for that Stampin' up template!
God bless!

I am trying to get someone to bring me 'the bug'. Shipping would kill me if I order it(to India)..so I'm always looking out for such treasures that could find a place at my home!
esp c'bugged pieces..
If you don't mind shipping it int'nationally, I would love to get them

What can I say, someone's loss, and someone's gain!!
thanks Angel for such generosity!

Angel;
I went through the SU Catalogue to find that envelope template but all I could see were the mini-envelope templates and some note card template. Do you know if that template is still available or where I could find it???
Can you e-mail me with that info pleeeeease? Hugs
