Another Note Card Gift Set

Hey y'all! Happy Tuesday! I hope you are having a fabulous week so far! I wanted to share another note card gift set with you today. Y'all know me...I seem to get on these crafty streaks every now and then of creating the same type of project and this week it's these little note card gift sets. I made this one for a friend. I added her initial, which is 'T' to the front of the box and to some simple note cards inside. I used my Cricut Expression, Cricut Gypsy and the 'Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More' cartridge for this project. I cut the initials out using my SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) Software. This font is called 'Ballpark Weiner'...tee hee, love that name! I chose patterned paper from K & Company. I also added in some gold bling, lace, and a 3-D flower. Of course, I pulled out my favorite Helmar Adhesives to put my project together. For this project, I used: Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots, Helmar Premium Craft Glue, and the Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner. I pulled this whole project together in a few hours. I hope my friend will enjoy this. In her profession, I thought she might need the occasional note card to send out.
 Here are the cards inside. Once again, I mixed up my colors of cards for that extra pop of color inside.
 This holds 12 cards, 4 designs.

Card #1
 Card #2
 Card #3
 Card #4
I'd like to tell you that you won't have to look at another one of these again, but I already have another one (maybe 2) in the works! LOL! I can't help myself! They are so fun and I love to give them to my family/friends as gifts! So I'll see ya tomorrow or later in the week with another one! :)

Have a fabulous evening! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Happy Scrappin'!!!
Pin It!

I am so glad I found your blog! I am missing my cricut especially after seeing your beautiful work! I am in the middle of a move due to a military orders. I am living temporary with family while my husband is away at school so my craft supplies are packed on their way. I use to live in Hawaii where I didn't have access to a lot of great products,so where can I find Helmars? I was excited to get back to Michaels and the Big Box stores, but it doesn't appear they have it unless I am missing it. I am happy to be a new follower!

Thank you for your kind words ladies! I really do appreciate them! :)

Tammy-You can find Helmar at many local scrappy stores and I know Hobby Lobby is starting to carry it in their craft department too. Other than that, you can find any of their products online. If you will go to the Helmar Blog and look on the left hand side, there is a big list of preferred retailers that sell Helmar products. Here is the link to the blog for you:

If you even just get 1 thing, I highly recommend the big bottle of the 450 Quick Dry Adhesive!!! I adore this stuff! It dries quickly and adheres anything!!! I also am a fan of the Liquid Scrap Dots, but those need time to set and dry. I usually like to let things I've adhered with it set up over night. I also love their square Zap Dots in black or white. I hope this will help!

Oooh, and be sure to friend them on their FB page. They do give aways all the time!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!
