New Kits from Adriana’s Cafe September 30, 2012

Boy, do I have a lot of things to show you!  My internet has been out for a while (again!), so I am quite behind on layouts and show and tell.  J  But hang in there – I have some freebies, too, including a fun printable of lunchbox notes.

First up is Daily Memories by Adriana’s Café.  Here are some layouts.  I really like the one with my great-grandparents – the paper and lace make it feel so vintage!  🙂

My great grandparents and me! 🙂

…And the kit….

…And a cluster frame using Daily Memories that you can download here.

Adriana also has September’s Our Life in a Year out, too.  Check out the kit.

I went hybrid with this one and made some fun printable notes – 8 of them, actually – that can be slipped into school or work lunches.  I had so much fun with them that I just might have some next month with another of Adriana’s kits, except with a Halloween theme.  (Hint, hint!)  Here’s a peek at some of them.

And here’s a look at the notes in the download.  (Click on image for larger view.)

Download the printable lunch notes here, then just print them out on 8.5 x 11 paper, cut them and stick them in lunches.  Most of the notes are generic, but there are a couple school ones, too.  In the download some blank ones are also included so you can customize the notes.  Here are some other ideas and tips for notes:

  • Print out and pre-cut several notes at one time so they’re ready to grab and go on a busy morning.
  • Write a Bible verse to encourage or inspire.
  • Add a knock-knock joke.  What kid doesn’t love these?
  • Is there a test coming up?  A project at work?  A deadline?  Add a quote or Bible verse to let them know you’re thinking of them….
  • Save all those random toys from party bags and Happy Meals and throw them in every once in a while, or pop in some stickers for a fun surprise.
  • Write a personal note on pre-printed notes every now and then.
  • Have Daddy write notes every now and then for the kids, too.
  • …And don’t forget Daddy!  Have your kids draw a picture on a note for his lunch.

All of Adriana’s kits can be picked up at Scraps-n-Pieces or Stuff to Scrap.
