Huh?? As I was making samples for Stampin' Up's Leadership Conference I was wracking my brain trying to come up with things that were "different" for some of my samples. This is an example of one of those ... I had a pretty clear picture in my head what I wanted to make ... just not a very clear idea of what it was that I HAD when I was finished!!

See??? When you open it up, it has five cute little "pockets" inside made with the Petite Pockets Die ...

... and inside each pocket is a little "card" made with the Two Tags die ...

but ... What IS it??? "Five Reasons I Love You?" "Five Happy Birthday Wishes?" "Five 'Honey-Do' Certificates?" I guess that is up to whoever makes it, right? I'm still trying to figure it out!!

As for the dimensions (which I know I'm gonna get asked about), I can't exactly remember, since this was one of my last samples made and I had to get them in the mail to Stampin' Up. I think the overall dimension is 5.5" x 5.5". Let's see ... two pieces of cardstock that were 5.5" x 7.5", scored at 5.5",6" and 6.5" along the 7" side. Fold the scored lines "valley/mountain/valley" and overlap the valleys from each piece to created a fold in which you can tuck the pockets. Does that makes sense? I hope so!! (I'm guesstimating the overall measurements since I didn't write them down ...)

From Millan.NetIt snowed yesterday so we FINALLY have some blue sky today (living in a "bowl" with mountains on either side of the valley makes Salt Lake City have the WORST air quality in the US until a storm system can come in and blow it all out!). YAY for blue skies!
