On Friday I had my monthly class and it was called Get Connected Notes Class – we made two projects one I designed as a box set that you could have sitting on your desk ready to go whenever you needed to connect with friends or family by sending them a note.  I used the Bella Rose Designer Series Paper and the coordinating colors and pulled out an old stamp set that I hadn’t used in a while – Heartfelt Thanks.  It is a beautiful 2-step stampin’ set.  Everyone made the box, four cards with matching envelopes – there were two different styles, a bookmark and a beaded pen.  This project would also be a perfect gift for a teacher – I’ve seen many discussions on what to give and not give teachers.  It seemed the most popular gift that teachers want is note cards or thank you cards – something consumable.  So this idea is perfect!   My kids only have about 6 more weeks of school left for this year – it is unbelievable how fast time goes by!
