Finished gift, finally!




I finally finished the gift set for my SIL for Christmas that I had posted as a 'partial' for the blog hop the other night. I hope to make more of these for my other SILs and a few other people on my list, in different colors. :) The other night, the notepad still needed more embellishments, I hadn't made the notecards or the tea holder yet. What do you think? Too many dew drops on the tea holder? There are six notecards with envelopes in the holder, too few? Add a pen? What would you do differently? Thanks for looking!
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Take Note, Tea for Two, Fresh Alphabet, Simply Stationery, Damask Designs
Paper: PTI white, New Leaf, SU Pink Pirouette and DP
Ink: PTI New Leaf, Hibiscus, SU Going Gray, Black Stazon
Accessories: punches, nestabilities, decorative scissors, PTI buttons, ribbon, dewdrops
Templates: Lauren Meader's Recipe Wrap-Up, From the Desk Of, Nichole Heady's notebook cover

Beautiful! I love it, and what a great gift idea:) I think your added idea of a pretty pen tucked in the ensemble would be perfect:)

You put so much thought into these, and I checked back at least 3 times yesterday to see the final result! I like your layout for the notecards, they have a great design to them, not too simple, not too much stuff on them to mail!!
And your tea pocket is adorable, the notebook is perfection with those 3 slits for the paper to thread through...so much detail!
You had mentioned a lotion for your caddy, but I think a pen in light pink would be pretty. I've seen them at the dollar store sometimes. You've made a beautiful from the heart gift!!

How lovely, what a great gift. I wouldn't change it at all except to add a beaded pen. Then she could write on her pretty cards.
