Neat New Post-it Note Covers

I found a great tutorial at Dawn's Stampin' Studio and decided to try my hand at these since I sold most of my craft fair stock at my Holiday Stamp-a-Stack on Sunday! These are so much faster and easier (and cheaper to do) than the chipboard ones I did last time. I whipped 9 of these out in not too long at all! Will do more for sure. Thanks for sharing your tutorial Dawn!

Here's a picture of the back side and the inside of one set. I tried to spruce up the inside on this set since I left the outside basic. Although the flowers do have some dazzling diamonds in the centers. For the closure I glued a Curly Label to the front then punched a word window on the back so the label could wrap around and slip inside. These will also have pens in the outside loop (where the ribbon is) when I buy them. For each set I used a different type of closure- large oval punch on one, and a cut out tag on the other. HTH! If you want supplies I used let me know... stamp sets are: Be Happy, Heartfelt Thanks, Tart & Tangy, and the inside sentiment is from an old set Happy Harmony which I'd almost forgotten about.

These are great for using up old designer series paper. I used Recollections, Spring Fling I think it was called and the current Summer Picnic (from right to left). I can't wait to do more designs!

My Holiday Stamp-a-Stack on Sunday was a success! I had 7 ladies here and I really enjoyed having them. They completed 16 cards (4 each of 4 designs) and 1 gift bag. I've posted pictures here. Everyone seemed to enjoy the projects, even though they did take some time (4+ hours) as I expected. I try, oh I try, to do simple super-quick projects, but I just can't leave well enough alone. And honestly, I think some of them would be disappointed with 1 layer, 1 minute cards! We also had dinner and snacks, door prizes and lots of laughs.

Anyway, don't forget to contact me about my Award-Winning Roof Garden Gift Set Class if you are interested. Because this class requires product ordered, payment is required with registration no later than Nov. 10th . Space is limited.

Details are as follows: November 23rd at 3pm, my house, $25 includes the Roof Garden Accents & Elements Tin, and 4 full size cards, 4 note cards, with matching envelopes. PLUS, you will have 2 full sets of the Accents & Elements (adhesive cardstock weight embellishments) left to make many many more cards and projects at home!

This class should take much less time (I'd guess 2 hours) since I will have everything completely prepared for you. You will be assembling the cards using your preordered A&E tin, and the only stamping is for the greetings. Don't worry, I will have optional greetings available if you don't really have a use for "To my Wonderful Sister-in-Law". :)

I'll post individual pictures of each of these cards tomorrow, plus hopefully more projects I get done today if I ever end this post! Don't forget, only 3 days left to celebrate Stampin' Up!'s 20th anniversary with their great 20% off deal! (Hint, some of these sets we'll be using in my Annual Birthday Bonanza in January so you just might want to take advantage of this!).

How's that for a post?!? Makes up for missing yesterday, eh?! Glad to have you here!
