Friends Notepad

Some time ago I bought some notepads and I had planned on making a cover for it. I finally got around to it :-D! I used three different Designer Series Paper packs- Cottage Wall, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive. I really like the Vintage Vogue stamp set and wanted to use it for this project. I used a card map from Mojo Monday (Week #88) for the cover. The 'Friends' mat is popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals and the flower and leaves are stamped and cut out, with only the flower popped up on another Stampin' Dimensional. I used a clear rhinestone brad for the center of the flower and curled the petals to give it more dimension.

On the inside, I added a 2010 bookmark calendar matted on Rich Razzleberry Designer Series Paper. I may add some small flowers from the Vintage Vogue stamp set to the inside left cover, but for now I am leaving it as is. If you want to make one of these, please see instructions below:

Cut Rich Razzleberry card stock 8 1/8" x 10.5". With the 10.5" side running across the top, score 5 1/8" from each side. Cut Old Olive card stock 4.75" x 7.75" for the front mat. Cut top part of Designer Series Paper 4.50" x 4.25". Cut bottom part of Designer Series Paper 4.50" x 3.25". Adhere to the Old Olive card stock mat. Cut Old Olive card stock 4.75" x 2" and punch with the Scalloped Trim border punch. Trim straight edge so the border piece is 7/16" wide. Adhere to the front between the two Designer Series Papers. Cut two mats from Old Olive 1.25" x 4" and two Designer Series Paper 1" x 3.75". Adhere the Designer Series Paper to the Old Olive mats. Add a brad to the two outer corners of the mats and adhere. Stamp the Friends image onto 1.75" x 2.25" Whisper White card stock in Rich Razzleberry. Mat onto Rich Razzleberry Textured card stock cut at 2" x 2.50". Add Stampin' Dimensionals to the back and center on the two Old Olive mats with brads. Stamp the small flower from Vintage Vogue in Rich Razzleberry, cut out, curl the petals a little, add a clear rhinestone brad to the center, a Stampin' Dimensional on the back and place on the lower right corner. Stamp two leaves from Vintage Vogue in Old Olive and adhere underneath the flower.

For the inside, cut Designer Series Paper 4.75" x 7.75" and adhere. You can add a calendar if you would like, add some flowers from Vintage Vogue, or just leave it plain.

For the top of the notepad, cut Designer Series Paper 2.75" x 5". Line it up at the top, bringing it around to the back and adhere. Use four to five strips of Sticky Strip on the back of the notepad to make sure it stays put and line up the left edge of the notepad with the right scoreline, press down to secure the Sticky Strip.

Hope you will try one of these. It would be great to give with a set of matching 3" x 3" note cards and/or a designer pen made with one of the papers used for the Notepad. Have a great day everyone!!! See ya' tomorrow!
