As promised, I’ve put together a super quick tutorial for the Note Pads that I made for my new team members, at our recent ‘Meet & Greet’ event.
(BTW: This project is a direct CASE from Andrea Gideon)
Here ya go:
Using card stock of your choice (I used Whisper White for this tutorial), cut at 9 3/4″ by 5 1/4″. Then score at 1″ and 1 1/4″. Click on the photo to make it larger, if you want to see the score lines.
Next, decorate your card stock with your stamps – I used my jumbo wheel with Crumb Cake Classic Ink and the gorgeous “Very Vintage” wheel.
Going with the ‘vintage’ theme, I sponged Crumb Cake onto the card stock. Our sponges work GREAT for this! I always cut my sponge into 8 pieces so one sponge goes a LONG way!
Using some Sticky Strip, adhere your notepad to card stock.
I chose to use “Bashful Blue” ribbon to tie around the top.
The bird image I used on the tag is from the Hostess One set: Silhouette Sentiments. This is such a great stamp set! You can’t buy it though, because even better, it’s FREE! Just host a workshop and you can earn your own set – which is easy peasy to do – and soooooooooo much FUN! Contact me today to book your workshop – I have some dates available for January and February! I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I also stamped the flowers from ‘Silhouette Sentiments’ on to the top page of the note pad, in the bottom corner.
Here’s the finished note pad! What do you think? So quick and simple and I really enjoyed making these notepads! I can’t wait to make more for gifts! Can you imagine making these for holidays, such as Valentines? This would also be perfect with a magnet on the back, to put on your refrigerator or your filing cabinet. Hey! How about some Velcro and place it on your dash in your car? Maybe just make it a bit smaller and attach a pencil to it! Oh, the possibilities are endless. I love stamping. It’s just too much FUN!!!!!
