TSG Sneak Peek Day 2

Well, here we are - it's Day #2 of the There She Goes Sneak Peek Blog Hop and today the girls are showing projects using the new set A-Z and 123. This set is soooo versatile and I can see it becoming one of my most-used stamp sets for everyday gifts and personalized projects!

If you made your way to my blog from the fabulous Holly's blog, you're on the right track! If not, head on back to Jessica's blog and start at the beginning - you don't want to miss any of the amazing projects with this set!!

For my project, I created this cute little personalized notecard gift set for my Grandma Joan. She loves sending handwritten notes to all of her old lady friends and gets a kick out of telling them her granddaughter MADE the card she's sending them, so I know she'll love this set!! I used the "J" stamp and one of the circles from the new set to create a little monogram tag for each of the cards. I also pulled out my old TSG set - Thinking of You and used my SU markers to ink up the flowers and stamp along the bottom of the main image panel to match the old SU DP I used.

I used Lauren Meader's Captured Card Case Template to create the matching box, resizing it a bit to hold 3.5 x 5 inch notecards. The box base and some of the card accents are made out of Real Red CS and I added some Real Red ribbon as well. I used my circle nestabilities to cut out the mat for the monogram and some silver cording to attach it to the ribbon.

Here's a look at the open gift box with the notecards inside. They fit PERFECTLY and it's such a cute little gift set! I used the same Real Red color combo for half of the cards and Pumpkin Pie for the other half. I think it turned out great and this is a quick and easy personalized gift I can see myself recreating many times in the future!!
