No Reason Notes 2013: 01/52


Well, of course, the very first NO REASON NOTE of 2013 went to the friend who inspired it all, Jenny. I decided to reach back to my scrapbooking roots and cute up the envelopes each week.

First things first: starting a Pinterest board just for beautiful envelopes and ideas. There's not too much out there so I thought I would share some of mine here.

Jenny is my Crafting Soul-mate.  We first bonded over sewing and craft blogs and she is my go-to friend for chatting about quilts.  You can check out her craft blog here....she's a quilting vixen!

I had a square card and an oblong envelope so I was able to sew right onto the envelope and be sure I could still get my card inside.

I stamped this cute Sewing Machine stamp onto a list pad I got at Target Dollar Spot a few years back.  Then I used a circle punch to cut it out.  If something has design or color you love (mustard yellow = stripes = swoon!), think about how you can use it!

sewing machine stamp: "puns from the past" set by Stampin' Up
scalloped border stamp: from a Japanese stamp shop on Etsy
finger pointing stamp: Martha Stewart
paper tags: My Mind's Eye
heart punch: fiskars
other: washi tape, sewing machine, mini alphabet stamps, red marker
