March Expressions!

 

It’s time for Card kits from Express the Moment! This month’s goodies came from Fancy Pants Designs – a line by Lili called “It’s the Little Things!” Did you ever notice that it’s the little things in life, like a handwritten note, or something in the mail besides BILLS that can really make your day?

Here are the cards that I have made with this month’s kit so far. I hope to have time to crank out a few more, and work with the other kits from Express the Moment that are out this month too. The page of the month kit is adorable – and I have really gotten into this year’s Moments project – a 12 x 12 album! More about this later. . . ON WITH THE CARDS!

I really wanted to focus on making complete cards this month. That meant, adding sentiments, paper on the inside of the cards, and even liners for the envelopes. The huge amount of patterned papers in the March kit made this really easy and fun to do. This “precious moment” card has a lot of uses, don’t you think? A matching lined envelope just really gives it a nice finishing touch.

The kit also includes a full sheet of chipboard stickers in these fun little banner shapes. I have seen lots of projects with banners on them lately… Banners must be IN!!! I doodled the letters onto these triangle banner shapes to make a baby card and attached them to a ribbon. How much fun is that!!! Not into making a baby card right now? You could write “love” or something else on your little banner. I like that you can make up whatever you want!

There is also a full 12x12 page of what looks like playing cards with these little hearts and birds on them in the kit. I cut out two of the aces and added them to this card with the hand-journaled sentiment, “What a great pair!”  You could also cut out the numbered cards to represent a special date, or an age! For instance. . . to make a birthday card for me, you should use the “2” and “9” cards, for 29, of course!!

Kim also includes envelopes of different sizes in her kits. When you get tired of making those A-2 size cards, you can always try your hand at something different. This card is 4 x 9 and includes a liner of really fun old-school tablet paper, perfect for writing a long love note to somebody special.

This last card is also a big one – 7 x 5.5 – I was thinking that this would be a good size to include my son’s school photos in – since I like to send the big ones to Grandma and Grandpop. What a fun kit! Now don’t forget to stop by the gallery page at Express the Moment for more exact measurements and instructions, and to see what everyone else is doing with their kits. That’s the fun part. . . besides getting these kits every month, that is!

Here is one more look at the papers and embellies that I used on the insides of the cards. . . I especially love the look of the school paper on the black card – and what an easy way to get your kids to write a note on the inside of a card too!

Thanks for stopping by!
