Note Pad Holder and Note Cards

Aug 21st, 2010 | By | Category: Announcements, archives, DSP - Elegant Soiree', Recent Posts

I put my Neutrals Patterns Designer Series Paper Pack to good use this week by creating this Notepad holder and six note cards for a friend/co-worker.  Her last work day was yesterday (at my full-time job) and she is going to concentrate on building up her embroidery/silk screen business.  I decided to create this for her gift and thought the note cards might come in handy for her business.  Here name is Wanda too – funny, huh?  How many Wanda’s do you know…and then to have us work at the same place, right across from each other and in the same role? If somebody wanted to get our attention, they just stood behind us and said our name. <smile>.  I was inspired by Becky Roberts post HERE to make the Notepad holder.  Mine is slightly different; I decided not to add a pen holder, used different paper, etc.  But I wanted to use Black and Very Vanilla for a more business-like look.  I forgot to get a picture of the cards outside of the package and wasn’t about to tear it open to get the pic!  Oh, and I couldn’t possibly stop without mentioning the gorgeous Antique Brads AND the Crochet Trim in the new Idea Book & Catalog!  Just love them! 



Here’s the inside of the NotePad holder.  I added a pocket to the left side of the holder and embellished it with some fun sayings from the Summer Mini – Favorite Thoughts.  Only TEN more days to purchase items from the Summer Mini!  Place your order today!



 I finished the set up by making a card using the Neutrals Collection and DSP.  The paper I used is the Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper, and I embellished it with the new 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Basic Black and Very Vanilla.  I love this ribbon!  The final touch was done by adding three of the small flower buttons from the Neutrals Designer Buttons.  Yes, I should have dipped that stamp in the ink just a little more!  But by then it was almost 2:00 am and I was getting really sleepy…AND had to get up for work that morning! ;-/

Thanks for stopping by!
