The last batch


This is the last of them. For a while I hope!! I did enjoy making them all but since I left it for the last minute it was quite stressful getting them all done in time.

The first one was for her librarian, the next was for her guidance counselor, her teacher who likes Green & Blue. Then my other daughter wanted some for her teachers. When I gave them out yesterday, I got some good feedback. I hope they can use them.

I'd list all the products like usual, but it's just like the previous notepads. All products PTI. Except for the actual notepads inside. I got them for a steal! Paid $5 at Walmart for two 6 packs (which gave me 24). Then I got an additional 24 notepads for free at Office Depot since the cutting machine didn't cut them exact. But I think they may still be usable....

I have a few Christmas projects almost ready to share this week. If the girls allow me some free time I'll get them done to show you all. Thanks for stopping by! Each and everyone of you make me smile!!

First try with my new Silhouette

See that pretty light pink design at the bottom of the notepad? It was cut out with my new Silhouette. I've only played with the machine a few times but I am smitten!! I added some Raspberry Fizz rhinestones to jazz it up, a damask image and a pretty little bow. I don't know about you, but I always seem to have a mile long list of things to do. And for some reason the list never shortens no matter how much I get done! So I figure if the package that has my dreaded errands in it is pretty to look at, I might be a little bit more apt to pull out the list and actually get the things done.

Stamps: PTI Damask Designs, Take Note
Ink: PTI Sweet Blush & Raspberry Fizz
Paper: PTI Sweet Blush, Raspberry Fizz & Vintage Cream
Misc: PTI Vintage Cream Satin Ribbon, MS Heart border punch, pop dots, Silhouette

I made another one for my friend that asked me to make her some notepads for her son's teachers. Not sure if it's too frilly for her, but I tried to keep it less than mine. I added flat back pearls instead of rhinestones, some buttons and a scalloped edge. I hope she likes it.
