Curtain Call.....Take Note
Happy Tuesday Peeps! Hope your week is going well so far!
Today I am sharing a fun little project I made using a pattern I found here. I used Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 40 for the colors for my notebook. In the tutorial for this, she called it a gift card wallet, I changed mine up a bit to use one of the jr legal notepads I had cut in half last week. The colors this week for the challenge are basic black, kiwi kiss, real red, tempting turquoise and whisper white. I used some retired DS Speciality paper, from the Rockabilly pack. I really like how this turned out. The base of the note pad holder is basic black and then on the front I used some kiwi kiss card stock and then the front and back of one of the DS papers in the pack. I used the stamp set, "Tart & Tangy" also I used the top note die and the Naturally Serif sizzlit strip die for my "Take Note" letters. There is turquoise on the front, I added a strip between the two DS papers, but in the photo the ribbon is covering most of it. There is also a bit showing around the stamped cherries.
Now the real fun is the inside:
For the left side of the cover, I used some tempting turquoise card stock and some kiwi kiss dotted DS paper. I covered the top of the half notepad with a bit more of the DS paper and then used score tape to attach it to the inside. I added the stamped cherries on the first few pages of the notepad.
The right side is made with the Scallop Envelope Die. I cut three, one in real red, another in kiwi kiss and another with tempting turquoise. I added some DS paper to the envelopes and a jumbo white brad to each. These envelopes can be used for any number of things, candy, gift cards, coupons, stamps...etc. I think for the next one I will add a pen/pencil holder in the middle.
I used some real red grosgrain ribbon wrapped around to tie a half bow for the closure.
Well, that is it from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
