Day 3 Embellished Note pads

Welcome to Day 3 of our GQ Spring Hop, I'm so happy that you've come back to see what we have new today! I'm having a great time sharing and I'm getting so inspired by all the lovely creations, can't wait to see what the rest of the week brings.

Today I'm going to share something a little different, I had bought several of the small purse sized lined notepads that I wanted to decorate for an upcoming craft fair, plus they make great little gifts, so I decorated a few to share and inspire you. Look around there's so many things we use on a daily basis that we can really cute up, lol, plus it makes that item more fun to use :)

For this project I used DSP; Flirtatious, Enchanted & Sweet Shop; stamp sets, Tea Shoppe, Notes & Details; the fancy flower punch and the doily triple layer punch. I also used the pleated ribbon from the Mini, the embellishment ribbon from the SAB, & grosgrain ribbon from the IBC.

I covered and embellished the front and back plus the inside of the front and back covers, there's even room for a small picture and some journaling or personalizing.

To create the large flower on the front, I used the die cut doily sheet in the flirtatious DSP, I carefully cut one complete doily, then I daubed a little ink on the edges and used a thin knitting needle to curl the edges, then I punched out 2 fancy flowers and 1 triple layer doily for the center. I used a dauber to ink the edges of all these pieces as well then I used a brad (from SAB catalog) to layer and attach them together.

I hope your enjoying the hop so far.....
