Simply Sent - Create and Keep

When I saw the new Simply Sent Kit in the Occasions Mini Catalog, I knew I had to get one just to see what it was like. Well, needless to say, I want more of them! This is the coolest little kit ever!! Inside the package, you will find everything you need to make 10 greeting cards, the envelopes to mail them in, as well as a box (complete with dividers) to store them in until you need them!! You don't even have to stamp anything - the die cuts that are included allow you to decorate your cards for all sorts of occasions. All that and they are cute, too :)

In the kit, you get the pre-cut and scored pieces to assemble this box:



I used Sticky Strip to put mine together - that or Tombo multi-pupose glue is recommended. I hate "drying time" so I chose the quicker method :) I was too anxious to see how cute it was! You also receive four divider cards and on the die cut sheet, there are little stickers to put on the tabs. You can choose the ones with titles printed (like I did) or you can use the blank ones for you own occasions:



The color combination is awesome - Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Early Espresso. The envelopes are Pear Pizzazz and have a cute little label to add a name or address to on the back and an adorable tab closure:



I know, I know - where are the cards?????? Well, here are the first five. You get 2 each of the five different colors and all of the die cuts coordinate. The fun is in putting them together - no two sets ever have to be the same :) I love these peel-and-stick little beauties:



There is such a diverse collection of sentiments - "Thinking of You", "Thanks", "Happy Birthday", "Hi", "Congrats", and "For You". I love that you have such great choices - something for all occasions:



The complete list of supplies:

Accessories: Simply Sent Kit - Create and Keep, Sticky Strip

How simple is that supply list!? I love it!!! The best part is that you can get all 10 cards with envelopes and the box with dividers for under $15 (plus shipping and tax). Yes, you heard correctly - it is only $14.95!! How great is that???

This would make a great gift for someone who enjoys sending cards to friends and family. And I think it would make a fantastic class (for all you demonstrators out there)! I know I certainly intend to have one. This goes together so quickly and is super easy!! I have friends who suffer with arthritis and sometimes it is just too painful to stamp. With this kit, they could still make beautiful hand-made cards with ease. And, it is great for kids, too, because you don't have to worry about "inky fingers" touching everything..lol!!

The possibilities are endless with this little kit. I can't wait to get some more of them. I think it would be fun to "step up" the cards by adding some ribbon, buttons, and brads. Hopefully this will not be the only kit we see like this - I intend to ask for more :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I am so happy to be back. I don't get to stamp everyday, but I do it every chance I get and hope to share again very soon. I am loving all of the new things and can't wait to show you more. 'Til next time..............................

Happy Stamping,

Laurie
