Cute By the Inch

I am having a lot of fun playing with the new level two Hostess Stamp set called Cute By the Inch.  They are great to whip together little cards.  I have made several cards at the last second when I have a minute or two to spare in the morning to stick in my husband’s lunch so he gets a little love note while he is eating.  I have put them on the kids pillows for them to find when they go to bed (although they are not always found until a day or two later when they are cleaning.)  They are also great for 3x3 “love note” sized cards. 

This is a fun little card that I added in as a little extra with my last swap cards just because I was having so much fun with them.  I made a little mini envelope out of the new Newsprint DSP using a retired envelope template and the card is a 1 1/2 by 3 scrap folded in half.

new stuff

I think that on our next 100+ degree day I am going to hide a bunch of these around the house and have a little scavenger type hunt for the kids.  It could be so much fun.  Let me know if you come up with any great ideas of your own for this cute little stamp set!

What an absolutely fun idea to just leave these little notes for your family to find. I'm going to start doing that with my kids...they are 22 and 25...but they will still get a kick out of it. I love this stamp set, but have no new ideas for sorry.
Have a wonderful day.
