Simply Created Kit~ Gratitude for Days Guest Post

Today's blog post is from Jen C., Concept Artist at Stampin' Up!

GRATITUDE FOR DAYS

There are some darling kits in the new holiday catalog. My personal favorite might be theGratitude for Days Simply Created Kit. I love the bright colors and patterns. The coordinating stamp set also has some great images.
I decided to play with the kit and explore ways to use it other than as a gratitude countdown. Here are a few ideas that I came up with while playing with this cute kit.
1. Add a little pocket and note to a treat or gift. I love being able to tuck a little message inside the pocket. And there are 30 of these cute clips in the kit that are perfect for attaching the pocket to your gift.

2. Create a little birthday “card” that holds both a message and a gift card. Use the number stickers to represent your recipient’s age. Stamp on the lined pocket card and add a sweet birthday wish. This is super-quick and easy.

3. Use it with Project Life. This kit coordinates beautifully with the Happiness Is Project Life Card Collection. If you cut down the pockets from the Gratitude for Days kit, they become 3" x 4" specialty cards—which you can then add as an interactive element to your Project Life layout. Insert the lined card in the pocket with journaling, or use it to store ticket stubs/memorabilia.
The coordinating stamp set is also great for memory keeping. It helps prompt journaling about things you’re grateful for.
