I really love the tin of cards and got the stampset to match to make the cards inside but I used the Perpetual Birthday Calendar set to stamp the months on each of the tabs.
Maybe Stampin Up will put 12 dividers next time in the kit?
When I gifr these, I also like to put a pen - you can use a velcro tab on the pen and the lid to attach if you want.
Hopefully I will be better this year sending out my cards.....

One of my boy's teacher this year is crazy about Star Wars. He has movie nights at school and has lots of paraphernalia on his desk. He was the teacher for my other boy in the past and I had found some Star Wars designer paper then, but this time I had no luck finding anything appropriate. So Undefined again to the rescue- it is now retired through Stampin' Up but I bought a bunch of extra carving material just for situations like this. I found some pictures on the internet that I thought would work and printed it and used it to carve out the images. I found the font TIE-WING on line for free and printed on whisper white CS using my printer. I printed 4 on one sheet then cut it out then stamped the images above the sentiment. The Yoda is stamped in Pear Pizazz with same color CS to layer the stamped piece.
Easy cards and now with my new stamps I can make many many more. I have little stamping space so I don't mount the carved rubber on the wood blocks but they are thick enough to work without the wood.
I also carved out too much of Yoda's eyes so when I stamp it, it looks wonky. Since Stampin' Up has coordinated everything, I just used the marker to fill in the eyes a bit and it's just fine.....

I actually put a nail on my wall to make it a permanent part of my little wall.
I still have tons of leaves and yellow flowers left over to make more projects. I will have to play some more. This was the anniversary kit and it came with an extra stampset which was super sweet.

Diecut the whisper white with the leaves- make sure you have the orientation right on that one. Stamp the
Used the Botanical Gardens suite to diecut all the little flowers again and mounted them using dimensionals and Multipurpose glue and put the jewel crystals in the center.
The hummingbird is stamped first with stamped off Pear Pizazz with #1 stamp, full strength Pear Pizazz with #2 stamp and the Blackberry bliss with #3 stamp. Then use Melon Mambo for the collar stamp. You do have to fussy cut the bird but it does not take long- took me less than a minute to cut it out and you know how I hate cutting with scissors!

Anyhow in the pack were these really cheesy white heart with LOVE printed on it. There really is no one I could possible send these to as it stood but there had been really pretty black and white stripe cards I had seen. When I layer cards and have to cut the cardstock to size there are always 1/2 inch strips left over that I keep and these left over 1/2 inch whisper white strips were perfect for this purpose.
Stamped the sentiment from Rose Wonder stampset in black.
So all those little tiny pieces of cardstock, before you throw it away, see if you cut a few pieces of flower or center or whatever out of it.
