Big Post It Note Cover & Tutorial

Hi Everyone!..

I have another project to share with you today … a cover for a big post it note, I have Robyn to thank for putting this idea into my head yesterday at the Mini Album Workshop.

The cover I made yesterday for the workshop is the same but on a smaller scale, this is only 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″

The patterned paper is gorgeous .. I got this yesterday too it is Graphic45’s Safari Adventure.. I also made another mini album last night when I got home using this same paper line, and again it is a smaller scale mini, but I will share that with you next week.

I hope you have had a great weekend and I will be back next week with more projects.

Tiny festive Notes

Hi Everyone!

I’m back 🙂  I had a horrid chest infection and the flu that wiped me out for 2 weeks, all better now though 😀

I was sitting at work on Friday looking at my tiny wee post it note pad on my desk and thought to myself, that would look good with a wee cover on it.. so I brought it home and gave it a makeover 🙂

This would be an ideal gift to leave on co-workers desks, I gave this one a masculine feel as you know what men are like about christmas its all bah humbug 😉 … you could always make a set of these and package them up all pretty and use as a stocking stuffer (I may do this next week and record a wee video just need to buy more post it’s)

I do love using paper that has a white background, seems to make anything on the front pop.

The paper line used was from Hobbycraft and I picked it up for 99p it is fab quality and quite thick.
