Monochromatic In Colors

Edited to add :The altered junior notepads was made with the directions found HERE, by the fabulous Nancy Riley!

I get my JR legal notepads at Office Max and they will cut them in half for a small fee, like a dollar, if I am remembering correctly.

Good Monday Morning Peeps!!! Today I have some fun little projects to share with you and a special announcement. Last week I received an e-mail from Mary Jo asking if I would like to be the first ever Guest Design Team Member for the month of October for LateNightStampers. I was thrilled and of course I said YES!! This weeks challenge is Challenge 90 -- They are in for 2010/11--use our new in colors.

I have to admit I haven't played with the new in colors much, I think with all the new color changes this year, I have just overlooked the incolors a bit, in favor of some of the other colors, so this was a good challenge for me.

I knew right away that I wanted to make some gift sets, I like to have some on hand for unexpected occasions, birthdays, thank yous, whatever. I have really been enjoying making these little altered junior legal note pads. I added a matching card and a bookmark/paperclip and you have a nice little gift set.

I went monochromatic with these and that fits the challenge this week at
The Paper Players Challenge Blog. I used three of the new in colors, Poppy Parade, Concord Crush and Peach Parfait. The designer series paper is from the Level 1 hostess 6x6 paper pack. I used the Cherry Blossom Embosslit for the flower on the notepad and on the bookmark. I added a sticky pearl to the center of the flower. The sentiment "just a little note" is from the Apple Blossom stamp set and the sentiments on the cards come from the Occasional Quotes hostess set and the Curly Cute stamp set.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!

Perfect little gifts...sweet, simple, easy and they pack a punch! The In Colors this year have not been as appealing to me as in the past....although with projects like this, they're growing on me! Thanks so much for playing with the Paper Players this week!

These are too cute!!! I just saw them on Stampin' Connection. Where did you find the notepads for this project? I've been looking for them for other projects.

Thanks for sharing!

Vicki - congrats on your guest designer spot at Latenightstampers. Very well deserved!
I love this project. I'm so pleased that you featured the in colors. I don't think we look at them as often as we should. I love the way you treated the inside of the note pads. Great project!
Thanks for joining the Paper Players again this week.
