"FLOATING HEARTS" NOTEPAD AND PENCIL HOLDERS GIFT SET!

Good evening, all!

I'm back, but disappointed to not have the project I'd hoped to have for you.  For the life of me, I can't get that cut.file right and I know I'm close (but no cigar!), and I feel it's some silly little thing I'm overlooking.  Anyway, in lieu of not having a project to share with you at all today, I pushed myself away from that file --again--and made something else to share with you as I said I would.   It's not a project I would have liked for you but I did put this together with the hope that you'd like it.  I had to do it rather quickly too in order have it ready to present today .  I completed cutting it a couple of hours ago but I did want to embellish it a bit instead of just putting it out looking plain and, as you know, it also takes almost forever for Stickles to dry.  So, here I am posting a bit later than I expected.

It is a simple notepad and pencil holders gift set that I think I want to call "Floating Hearts" and I really hope you like it:


Although I still have not updated my files on 4Shared, I did add the cut.file for this (using the George cart), and you can find it at the bottom of this post.  I will make the cut.file available in other carts and add them also to 4Shared.  Once I've completed updating all my 4Shared files, I'll let you know and you'll be able to access/download this as well as any others I haven't gotten to yet.  You'll be able to select what you'd like from my sidebar selection once I'm done.

I apologize for how long it's taking me but I've had so many interruptions and distractions lately, so please just bear with me.

NOTE:
If you download this file, please use a heavy weight cardstock to cut it.  My first cut was with a lightweight cardstock, and neither the note holder tray or the pencil cup held up.

Until...

I'll be seeing you!

Someone is going to really be surprised when they open this beautiful set. You make such unique and lovely gifts, I would love to be the recipient. Have a great rest of the week my friend.

LOL! I wanted to let you know that I will be at CHA next week! Yay for me!!! I will be there Tues/Wed and Fri/Sat. How about you?! When and where do I finally get to meet up with you?!

Hugs!

I think you do so many nice projects, and I also would be thrilled to receive. Stickles is great but that drying time, and my Pippie always has to get close to see what it is and always ends up with it in her muzzle.
I know you know what I mean!

Jean said...

Audrey, this is so pretty. Sorry you are still having problems with that cut file.

Debbie said...

Love the colors! Don;t let that cut file get you down. In time it will all come together!

These are fabulous! I love the colors! Your bow tying is awesome! When I tie bows it is always a crap shoot, sometimes they are great other times not! :) I have not seen your doggy Buster. I would love to! I have 4 dogs (yes 4, I know....crazy!) But all 4 are rescue dogs and I couldn't imagine my life without them! :) I am going to have to get a picture of them on my blog soon. Thanks for your great comments over on my blog! **hugs**
