Just a little note...

I haven't been very crafty lately.

Life's just been too busy.

Its slowing down now, so I've deliberately taken some time to get crafty. I have several friends and family members with birthdays coming up, so I better stock pile some cards and gifts!

I saw these little legal pads at Staples the other day and thought they'd make the perfect craft project. They are 3 1/2" x 5 1/4" and come in a pack of 3 for $2. Perfect inexpensive gift for a teacher, coworker, friend or family member! I think this idea may carry over to Christmas ;o)

Notepad 1

I used the new Flirtatious Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! as my inspiration for this project. I just love this paper. It really is flirty and fun! And it challenges me to use brighter colors than I usually use. I'm more of a muted tone kinda girl, but since its summer I'll lighten things up! ;o)

Notepad cover

I used the scallop border punch, the decorative label punch, and the 1 3/4" x 7/8" oval punch for quick and easy detail and used a dot embossing folder in my cuttle bug for some extra texture.

Notepad inside

The jacket that wraps around the note pad measures 7 3/4" and is scored at 3 5/8" and 3 7/8" to make the cover. I just covered the Staples logo on the note pad with some more of that lovely flirtatious DSP and voila! So easy!
