I made a note pad today for a change ideal for by the phone or in your bag

I didnt feel like making any cards today so I went into the world of notepads.
Never made one before so it was full of disasters but I got there in the end.
The outer part (front and back) is made from strong card which I scored to one edge so the notebook would open better.
The papers inside were cut a little bit smaller. I stamped a tree on the front mainly because it was the first stamp I found  ...  lol  I stamped with versamark and then embossed with gold sparkle embossing powder. I stamped it onto a bit of lighter card and used a Martha Stewart punch for a bit of further decoration then stuck it onto the strong card. I added a bit of ribbon and was quite pleased with the result. Punched the holes for the ribbon of course .........

Hello Elly, this is really pretty and so usefull too.
I have some calendar's that I was supposed to do week's back, just starting the first one now.
I don't know if you will be the same now your a blogbabe, but deciding what to make just seem's harder for me, as I have seen ton's of thing's I want to try....just deciding what to do first is really difficult
