Love Notes {Growing In Unity}

***Looking for my Operation Julie's Smile post? Look HERE***

Welcome to my last day as the Growing In Unity gal!
It's been a fun week!

But stay tuned because tomorrow {Saturday, October 8th} we'll have a big celebration as we have a blog hop with Unity Stamp Company and Authentique Paper.
You won't want to miss it!

If you are new here or aren't already a follower: I'd love to have you follow my blog!
If you are one of my regular readers: Thanks for coming back! I love having you!

For my last project I wanted to make you all a thank you card...but can you believe that I don't own a single Unity stamp that says "Thank You"?

So instead - I made you some love notes to show how much I appreciate you...

This little set was made with some basic white cardstock, ink, and the Sweet & Sour Soup stamp set.

I started by randomly stamping "LOVE" and "♥love notes" in two colors of ink on white cardstock. From that randomly stamped sheet of cardstock I created the little box to hold the notes.
{And I do mean is only about 2" wide.}

Each note is created with the notebook paper stamp and a circle punch stamped with "U ARE SPECIAL" or "U ARE FABULOUS".

I am a sucker for anything that is (or even resembles) office supplies...and this adorable notebook paper stamp is one I can see using over and over.

It would be perfect for a little bit of journaling on a layout.
It could be easily turned into a cute tag.
It could serve as a layering piece for a card.
Or you can just use it for a sweet little note that can be tucked in a lunchbox or briefcase (if people still use those).

Today I used it to write a special note to each one of you...

Don't forget to leave a comment telling me what you think about today's project so you can be in the running to win a free kit from Unity Stamp Company! {It's the last day to enter!}
{The randomly picked winner will have a choice of one kit from the following list: Sending My Love, Bitty Backgrounds, Little Me, Bella Fiori, Homegrown , Hugs & Kittens, Handmade Holiday, Bella Trees, Imagine It - to be sent to a domestic address only, please.}
