Today’s projects are some that I made for my daughter and her college friends. After all who doesn’t need post its when you’re writing all those college papers, right? I know my desk is littered with all kinds of notes – over the years them become my to do lists. LOL!
I found these cute little note pads at my local dollar spot and knew they would be perfect for the kids. This first one is an easel holder. I wanted to make it look like the notes conversation hearts – so I chose one of the sentiments and stamped it onto So Saffron card stock and then punched it out using my Sweetheart Punch (133786).
I used the soft Wisteria Wonder pattern from the Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper Stack (140567) to add a bit more umpf. And keeping it soft, I teamed it up with the Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride card stock. The colors once again reminded me of the conversation hearts that have been around forever.
This second little note pad is a bit more elegant and holds the second post it note pad that came in the package – since it only had two little hearts in the corner of the pad I went a bit bolder and used our Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper (140655) and pulled the colors Watermelon Wonder and Mossy Meadow for the card stock base.
I then used my Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp. I added a third color, Early Espresso, for the words and of course once again the Watermelon Wonder and Mossy Meadow from the In Colors.
I love punches, they make things so easy and my 2″ Circle was perfect for this sentiment. If you’re new to stamping our circles and scallop circles are a great place to start – they’ll make quick and easy focal points such as these!
And the final project for today is a card that uses the Bloomin Love stamp set.
It’s raining once again here in North Georgia so it was tough to get a good photo. I hope you can see the richness of this Gold Embossed heart. Maria used the soft Blushing Bride card stock and teamed it up with our Basic Black for this classic look.
So which is your favorite?
