giddy in the mail

10.31.2013

there is something that makes me a little giddy when i have hand crafted for someone specific in mind...
then i finally get it to the post...
and i know it is on it's way somewhere in the world...
makes me simply giddy.
it's a simple pleasure that has inspired me for years to send pretty stuff in the mail.
i only wish i had more time to do even more of the same.

jamie pate ~ pretty large tag card

as shared earlier in the week, i am a little obsessed by these large tag cards...
pretty large tags cards as i have named them.
totally and completely inspired by heidi swapp's card she shared here...

jamie pate ~ pretty large tag card

this card is heavy with sugar chic off cuts.
some new color magic alphas...
plus the timeless color magic chipboard pieces and notes.

you know how when you use only part of a 12x12 sheet of pattern paper?
and then you try to save it in your stash...
and that one little skinny strip just keeps getting in the way...
those are perfect scraps to layer in on these tags.

i want to encourage you to do the same...
take out your scraps...
a few of your favorite pattern papers (that you may or may not be hoarding)
layer them up anyway you want...
add some pockets for hidden messages...
and send some giddy in the mail.
