Just a Note....

I met with my Stamp Club ladies recently.  We always make 3 projects together....usually 2 are cards and the third is something 3D and simple to make.  This was our 3D project from the other's an "oldie, but a goodie."  They LOVED this idea....THEY didn't know this idea has been around!

With school about to begin (in NJ, we usually begin right around Labor Day), there's lots of things for busy Moms to remember...and in my house, small pads of paper, or Post-It pads seem to develop legs and walk away!  By putting the Post-It pads onto an easel, they tend to stay put and be there when you need them.  It seems these ladies understood that concept perfectly...could it be that my house is not the only home where this phenomenon happens?!!

Can you tell what the easel is?  It's an inexpensive acrylic easel-type 5x7 frame!'s just turned the opposite direction so that the Post-Its are down and the "stand" is what is giving it elevation....Am I explaining that clearly?

Anyway, the stamp used for the background is a new Al La Carte, single stamp, called Triple Treat Flower. (Item #122909; Page #18)  So fun!  Matches a few of our punches.  The background is Crumb Cake and the flower was stamped in Wild Wasabi.  Then the image was stamped twice more, once in Pool Party onto Whisper White and again in Calypso Coral onto Crumb Cake.  The 5-Petal Flower Punch was used to punch out the Pool Party/Whisper White flower; and the 1/2" Round Punch was used to punch out the little circle flower in the center.  Can you see the little dot of white in the very, very center of each flower?  A fun little touch with the White Gel Pen.

The word, "Notes" was computer generated....I was lucky enough to easily match up the color to the ink!  This was punched out using the Large Oval Punch and layerd onto the framed background.  I'm loving this color combo....on my screen, it just doesn't look nearly as pretty as it does in real life; hope it looks better on yours.
