Love Notes - My Time Easy Sneak Peek

Hi friends! Do you ever leave love notes for your spouse/partner? Or even your kids? I have the perfect little love notes to share with you and a wonderful little box to store them in. It's getting close to Valentine's Day, so it's perfect timing! My Time Made Easy is releasing a new template on Tuesday called Creative Card Candy and it comes in a large and mini size. I'm using the mini size today.I love the new digi papers being released this month at MTME! I just love this music sheet paper...perfect for my "Love Notes" theme! I kept the top simple with a scalloped heart adorned with Martha Stewart roses and some silver pearls. The "Love Notes" title was created using the new Monograms Defined stamp set. It's a great alphabet stamp set and there are adjectives for every letter as well as some other words/phrases. The word "notes" was created using the "Just a Note sentiment". I just masked off the words I didn't want and inked it up. Then I masked all the letters except the "s" and inked it up and stamped it after "note". Easy peasy! I wanted the closure to be something other than ribbon and I found the perfect solution at my LSS yesterday.
This elastic band has metal ends on it and all I did was make a hole in the inside of the base and string them through the hole (the metal ends are inside the box) making a loop. I put a pretty brad in the center of the top lid, then looped the elastic band around it and it stays closed tightly! The love notes were cut using the Creative Card 2 cut file. I cut the mat with another new digi paper being released this month. This cut file comes with an envelope template as well. I stamped the hearts (from the You've Got Mail stamp set) on the envelope in Pretty in Pink ink.
This template is very roomy. I was able to get three love notes and 3 matching envelopes in there with room to grow!
I just love this little set! The paper is just so pretty and the box is really cute! You can see more sneaks from the team. Make sure you stop by their blogs to see what they have created!


Thanks for stopping in! The MTME team will be doing a group post on Tuesday, and I've got another fabulous note set that I made for a friend! See you then!

Lisa I LOVE this - what a great use of the new cut file mini cards/envies! Perfect touch of elegance and your solution to the ribbon was perfection. I WISH I had known about this BEFORE I created my set that you'll see on the 1st. I wanted an elastic closure - but went with a slightly different idea instead. You always inspire me!! Wish my LSS carried cool stuff like yours does.
