Back to School Love Notes!

    Hi there! Hannah here, from Fanciful Spaces!
    Back to school is around the corner! My daughter’s closet is slowly getting filled with new clothing, backpacks, and school supplies. My kiddo is a go-getter. She’s confident to a fault, and she doesn’t need her momma to help her through the world. Or so she thinks right now.
    Even if she doesn’t need it, I like to always tell her how amazing she is, or I occasionally sneak something small and special into her day. Who doesn’t melt a little at an unexpected expression of  Love?The first week back of school, I’m planning on sneaking a card into her backpack.  Just a little note from her mommy, found randomly in the day, to remind my 2nd grader that she’s adored at home.By keeping my design simple, with just a POP of color, I ensured that during this busy time of the year I could produce quite a few of these in almost no time. Touches of glitter and gemstones make my daughter feel special and she KNOWS that mommy loves her when I use my favorite gemstones.

    I used one of my favorite stamp sets, called Lunch Box Notes. It is a retired stamp, but there is a second version: Lunch Box Notes 2.

    To ensure that my stamp was lined up, and not going to stamp crooked in my stamping platform, I like to test stamp on a sheet of acetate. I printed a grid on mine to make it easier to line up.
    Perfect placement.
    Run some stripes of Scor-Tape down your trimmed and stamped focal strips.
    Glitter away.
    Finish off by mounting with 3D foam adhesive onto a nice white card base. I LOVED using the Basis White #110! It is sturdy, perfectly white, and has a nice tooth to it. Accent with your favorite gemstones, or not! I won’t judge if you keep hoarding them!
    I hope she loves this! Thank you so much for joining me! I hope I’ve inspired you to make a few paper hugs for your Littles!I used the following products in my cards:
