A Little Smile For You To Share!

A Little Smile Mini Card Kit

A Little Smile card kit.

Did you miss me?

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. Thanks to my wonderful customers and team, Steve and I spent a heavenly week in Maui, on the Stampin’ Up! Elite Incentive Trip. We enjoyed relaxing and took a much needed rest at the beautiful Grand Wailea Resort.

A New Look

While we were gone, Brian and Nicole from Integrant Services updated my blog. I hope you like the changes!! Didn’t Nicole do a great job with my new logo?

Let’s Get Going

To get back in the swing, it’s time for another Blog Hop with my friends from Australia. This week, we are highlighting the new Stampin’ Up! Kit Collection.

I chose the A Little Smile Kit. This cute tropical kit makes 8 mini cards, and comes with a cute little mini card case to hold them all. This is an all-inclusive kit, which means it contains EVERYTHING you need to make these cards!

Two of the cards use pre-printed palm trees that are easily punched out to adhere as you choose.

The remaining two cards use shells, palm fronds and vellum die cuts.

I think they’re all super cute!

You may be asking what you would do with mini cards. I like to slip them inside a gift, or inside a book I’ve borrowed from a friend. Another favorite thing to do is take the mini cards when we travel (like our recent trip to Maui or on a cruise). They are the perfect size to give extra tips to those who have gone above and beyond to make our vacation wonderful.

What ideas do you have for these cute little cards? I’d love to hear in the comments below.

Now, let’s see what Leonie’s been up to.

Using Retired Product Anew

I’m never one to let a chance go to “MAKE and DO”

I have pulled from my stash the retired Hello Life project Kit,

Remember this… ’the cake rack’ display board…

I used the leftovers to make up Note cards, to have on hand to send out! To update it I used the new In Colour, Berry Burst

And to make the Polaroid shape,

Cut your cardstock at 3” x 4” and then cut out the

Centre. I used a 2 3/8” Square die cut for the inner square.

I hope you enjoyed this project, and will look at your “leftovers” in new, creative ways!

Thanks for stopping by today!
