Much Love!

I can't tell you all how much your awesome comments mean to me!  You have all been too kind, and I appreciate each and every one of you that take the time to stop by and take a look!  The recent sneak peeks from The Greeting Farm have been super cute and super fun!  July 1st will be here in just a few days, and then all of the new cuties can be yours!!!!!!!!!

I've been pretty busy, but I have had some small windows of time to put together a few odds and ends.

I recently saw a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers for a "Matchbook Post-It Holder".  The tutorial is for the slightly larger pad, but I used a regular sized pad for mine.  I didn't exactly follow the directions as far as measurements were concerned, I just kind of used the general idea and made up my own size as I went.  Here's how mine turned out:

 This little girl is from TGF's Furever clear stamp set.

I used little squares of velcro for the closure.

It's just a simple little paper pad, but I like to have these types of things on hand.  The paper is from My Mind's Eye Dwell pad.  The post-it pad is from the dollar bins at Target.  I stamped the sentiment on the front of the pad with blue distress ink, the wet embossed over it with a clear iridescent embossing powder.
I dry embossed the shape behind the girl, and added a button and twine.  The front edge was punched with my EK notebook edge punch.

Copics:  Hair: YR04 YR07 YR09 R08.  Clothes, ribbons, socks: BG11 BG13 BG18.  Cat: N0 N2 BG000 RV91 RV11.

I also made a easel post-it pad card that I made with Wryn and Wren from Tiddly Inks.

This was the first time I actually colored Wryn's hair black, and I love it that color!  This super fun butterfly paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle's Hello Spring paper pad.  I used my Nestabilities to make a few layers under the image.  Behind her is a pretty white flowered ribbon that sits on top of some blue cardstock that I used one of my Martha Stewart edge punches on. (on both edges)  The sentiment is from a Doodlebug set.  The bottom rose that is white with purple edges is one that I made myself, and colored the edges with a copic, then topped it of with a bunch of Stickles.  The butterflies came from one of my Cuttlebug dies, and then I smeared them with a ton of Stickles. (used the embossing gun on them so they would dry sooner!)  And of course I squeezed a button and twine in there. (I feel naked without them!)  This is going to my aunt as a thank you card.

Copics:  Hair: N4 N8 100.  Dress: B63 B66, BG02 BG05.  Bird: G00 G02.

Thanks for looking!  Hope everyone has a great weekend!  TGIF!
