Note Card Set & New Segment Announcement

Hello, Diana here, today I would like to share this Note Card Set I made. Every year my coworkers and I exchange small Christmas gifts, I made 3 sets of note cards for ea of the girls.



Again I used the same design for all of them, it is a huge time saver, I decided to make 5 cards per set, once I picked the Paper, Adhesive Paper Borders and Ribbon it was just a matter of gluing everything together.


































With leftover paper I decorated a Paper Bag to put the cards inside and keep them in a nice place, it also adds a good presentation to the gift, and to finish a Manila Tag that says: “from the desk of ……”




Supplies Used:
Pattern Paper and Paper Borders: K&Co Greenhouse collection
Ribbon and Lace: American Crafts
Twine: Martha Stewart
Craft Cards and Envelopes
Manila Tags
Brown Paper Bags
Cotton Twine
Border Punch: EK Success

And now my Announcement, I am so happy to be starting a new Segment here at TST, every 3rd Wednesday of the month I’ll be giving a Free Mini Album Tutorial.

I really like to make Mini Albums, the size is perfect for creating albums with a specific theme and they also make great gifts.
Here are some examples of previous Mini Albums I’ve made



































































Remember the 6"X9" layouts I shared here:

This is the cover of the album:
