Happy Saturday! It has been a long week of final exams and end of year testing at school. Schools not out yet! Students have three more days and I still have over a week! Soon, though! Very soon! Anyway, I was ready to shake off the week and play in my craft room for awhile. My craft room relaxes me and keeps me sane!
I am playing along with PTI Make It Monday Challenge! This week we were challenged to create a notepad. I chose to use the PTI file folder dies and kraft card stock for the base. The colors I chose inside for my notes are harvest gold, hawaiian shores, and spring moss. Once again, I reached for the Shakers and Sprinkles kit! Seriously! I cannot help myself! I decided to go for an inlaid die cut focal image. This meant that I had to back the notepad cover in another piece of kraft. I was okay with that as it offered some more reinforcement. I figured with a notepad, the word "Scatter" made sense. Scattering notes of joy!
I did a bit of distress stamping with the Venice BG stamp and some harvest gold ink. I did not want it perfect. I added one of the memory clips in rustic white that I layered with a piece of kraft for added stability. I stamped the tiny heart from the Shakers & Sprinkles kit in the three colors included in the pad. I tried to keep the pad front simple. I did add a few buttons to tie in all the colors. I am also playing along with NBUS Challenge! This week is Anything Goes with a focus on Friendship. My new and unused item is the Scatter die. Not used it yet til now!
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
