Filled With Love - Alternate Project - Love Notes

Filled with Love alternate idea Paper Pumpkin January 2015 Stampin Up
Alternate Project Idea - January 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit

I'm really just smitten with this months Paper Pumpkin kit!!
If you aren't a member and haven't seen this months kit, check out this video that shows the Filled With Love kit! Darling!!

Today I'm sharing some alternate projects for the January kit. I think the stamps will be perfect for Valentines treats or for love notes to your sweethearts. I have 3 little sweethearts - I can just see tucking some notes in lunches or their back packs! You could also use these for gift cards for weddings or anniversaries, or just sweet nothings for your special someone... Can't go wrong with Love!

Economical idea: Cut the Note Cards in HALF and the envelopes too!
If you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, I totally recommend ordering a pack of note cards to have on hand. They will work great with extra supplies, or just the stamps, in most kits! Once you've gotten a couple months worth, you'll be able to mix and match colors and stamp sets to make even more great cards! I've included them in the product links at the end of the post, check it out - you get 20 cards and envelopes in a pack!!

For sweet little gift enclosures, or lunch notes, or gift tags, I love that you can cut the note cards in half!! This doubles your fun, as it were! ;-) For the two cards above, I cut the note card in half, creating two top-fold notes, and I cut the envelope in half as well creating two pocket envelopes. You can just seal the edge with a piece of tape. I show the back side of the envelope above, but I did decorate both fronts. The cards are made with just the stamps from the kit!! Perfect for a little sweet treat, plate of cookies, or a seasonal thank you. You can really step these up by adding some bling, maybe ribbon or washi tape to the envelopes, or adding other elements from past Pumpkin kits. But for today, the basics are pretty beautiful! Sweet and simple. ((obviously too small to mail, but perfect for little love notes or gifts!))

So, you don't have time to make Valentines? BAM - this note card was done in UNDER 5 minutes!! It might even have been under 3 minutes, but the heart chain is a little tricky to line up. Its pretty sweet though, am I right? The envelope I stamped with the heart in the return address area, you enter your name here. Then next to the address I put the stamp that says "You have My Heart". See what I did there? 'You have my heart', then your name in the heart? ;-) I crack myself up. Ahem...

If you have extra supply pieces from the kit; or you order two kits to play around with (like I do); or you realize how cool the alternate projects are for a particular kit and order a Refill Kit ((Available exclusively to subscribers!!))... Then you can use them to make other projects!

Alternate idea for Filled with Love Paper Pumpkin Stampin Up January 2015
Note Cards - small in size, but can still handle the big feelings! 
For these cards, I used the fold over bag toppers from the kit, cut lengthwise in half. On note cards this will give you a nice chunk of pretty paper!! And for every tag, you'll have a die-cut heart, so you can use those too! Or, when you run out, use the stamps! Don't forget to decorate your envelopes!

You can see the beautiful Decor Pennant / Gift Bag Tag I made HERE.
