Gratitude for Days

I puchased the Gratitude for days kit last July decided to alter it and   make it for my daughter.  She in turn bought a kit for her Sister-in-Law. Gratitude for days suspended on Ikea picture frame.Since they always have family Thanksgiving together, I felt that I shoud try and alter my kit some what and this is what I came up with.

You can make many fun things with the pockets in this kit.

Life is a little sweeter when you take a step back to recall how good we have it. Record your gratitude from day to day and hang them up as a reminder with these colorful cards and pockets.

Kit includes 33 cards and 30 pockets, as well as stickers, binder Here are some project ideas for you:

Use it with some of our stamps and framelits to create a bright and fun card anyone would love to receive.

Create a fun 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.


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.


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.

Video – Tag Topper Punches

Learn how to make tags of any length with just one punch. Most tag punches punch out the entire tag, so you’re limited to one size. Now there’s a tool that punches out just the top of a tag so you can choose how long you want your tag to be. It also punches out the hole for a tassel or thread so you don’t have to do it separately. It’s available in two top designs: scalloped and angled. (continue on to wath the video…)
