As you make your way through the hop make sure you comment on each and every post.

There will be 4 prize winners chosen randomly among the blogs:

Two winners will win 2 stamp sets of winners choice valued at $12.95. (total retail value: $26.90 per prize) from The {Stamps} of Life
and
Two Colorful Bunch Sampler Packs ($20 value!) from The Twinery!!!



The prize winners will be announced on The {Stamps} of Life and The Twinery blogs on Tuesday May 3rd.

The project I am sharing with you today uses the momogram2build set from The {Stamps} of Life and Caribbean, Honeydew, and Cappuccino twine from The Twinery.


I chose three monogram frames and three sentiments from the stamp set (there are so many combinations you can create!). I then chose three colors of The Twinery's twine and found some ink that coordinated nicely. I wanted to create mini cards that can easily be tucked in a lunch bag or backpack - these stamps were perfect for the job.

Once I stamped, cut, and folded the mini cards I added a little accent of twine from The Twinery. I decided to create a fun box to contain all the little cards, and tied it off with The Twinery's twine. A cute little card set and coordinating packaging - fun and super easy!
