EIO Notes

Hello to Everyone~

I hope you are all doing wonderful this fabulous Monday! :) Don't forget to check out my Blog Candy for a Cause HERE! Today it's my weekly post for Embellish and I have a fun notepad to share with you! I found the dimensions HERE. Jackie did an amazing job with her notepad that I just had to try to make one, and I have to say it's so easy! I tweeked a few things, that I will share with you while you are here!

I used one of my new WOJ stamps....this is one of the new Gnomes by Norma Fickle called Uru with Candycane. I am in love with the cute Gnomes so you will get to see many more! I have used numerous papers from the Imaginisce Polar Expression Collection. The "notes" is the new delight Thickers, they are fabric covered and I adore them. The size is perfect for cardmakers because they are smaller than the regular Thickers.

Here is a close up of Miss. Uru colored with Copics. I have cut and embossed the image with my Curved Rectangle Nesties. My border design was created with Rubber Tapestry Pine Forest stamps. I love how you can create your own unique borders with these small stamps. To make Uru's candycane sparkle I have used my clear Spica Copic on the red parts and frosted lace Stickles on the white parts. I have accented the image with my white gel pen.

I created a twinkling snowflake for the bottom corner of the notepad. Created with my Snowflake Nesties, and then added Twinklets for the crystal sparkles!
Then we have the inside with my notepad. Again I used my Snowflake Nesties along with a Imaginisce Cozy Sticker Stacker for the accent on the left hand side of my holder. I covered the top of the notepad to match the papers that I have used on the front.
And then this is where I tweeked Jackie's tutorial a bit. So many customers at the craft shows I have been in have said they LOVE my altered notepads, however they are sad that when you use all of the paper you have to throw out the cute cover. Here I have created a fix to the problem. I have created a pocket that you slide the back cover of the notepad in so all you have to do is replace the notepad when you are done and can keep reusing the decorated cover. YAY!
