Seriously SWAK'd

OMG, just wait until you see what the ladies in this challenge did. And yes, I think I did underestimate this (lesson learned!).

Phew, that's a lot of code for a faux-computer geek like myself! (Anyone else notice that Blogger is not so Mac friendly?!)

I'm just going to put it out there that I am doing my best Wayne & Garth "I'm not worthy" to each and every talented person listed above. Their creations are FAB, and most of them, if not all, are in the middle of creating CHA samples, too, so I can't even use that as an excuse. I will say that I created these with a specific purpose - they will go in my DH's suitcase on his next trip. I love hiding little notes for him when he goes overseas, almost as much as he loves finding them. So here is my series for his next trip (insides are included, too):




This one uses Papertrey Ink's Sweet Love (flourishes), Faux Ribbon (outer sentiment), and Out on a Limb (inside sentiment).




This one uses Limitless Labels on the front and Faux Ribbon inside. The paper is Bazzill Bling (hence the glimmer/glare).




This one is actually my favorite. I used the moon from Out On a Limb and embossed it with clear embossing powder and then added stars and edged it with my Copic Y19 Napoli Yellow. (Sorry for the inside photo being a little blurry!)

So that is my feeble attempt at Lisa's challenge. I'm in awe of the talent she called out on this challenge - everyone made a great show of it! ) I think what is next on my list is going to be to finish my tin. Thanks for looking, and thanks for the great challenge, Lisa - it's a sweet little pattern! If you made a version, be sure to put a link in the comments!

Be well! ~ Jenn

What a great idea to put these in your husband's luggage!! What a nice surprise when he unpacks. My husband travels overseas quite often too, I might have to borrow that idea. They look great! Thanks for sharing.

These are really cute! I especially like the top one! :-D

Oh Jenn...these are adorable. I love the idea of hidding love notes. I usually do something like that when I go away (DH usually stays home to take care of our 4-legged kid)...but there are places he looks everyday, so while I'm at CHA, you can bet he'll be finding a few of these!

Lisa Johnson said...

THESE ARE PERFECT!!! a perfect use for the tiny pattern for sure. I LOVE the way you combined the sentiments on the inside with the images on the front.
you also inspired me with another idea....I might just have to pull it outta my hat at a later date! ;)

Julie Brooks said...

How cute, Jennifer! The baby one is adorable! I can see it attached to a baby gift... perhaps a stamped onesie! :)
