Nifty Notepads!


I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Saturday was a workday for me but yesterday was nice. I got a few things created in the morning and then my parents came over for supper and a visit, which was great.

My husband left this morning at 5am to go work out west. His flight left at 7:15, so he should be in the air now and it's a four hour flight. I've asked him to email, text, phone me or whatever when he gets to Calgary to ease my mind. I should hear from him before I head in to work this afternoon.



One of the little projects that I'm working on for Christmas are these cute little notepads! I used 4x4 lightweight coasters for the covers and cut blank printer paper into 3 and 3/4 inch squares for inside. I put it all together using my Bind-it-All machine and decorated the fronts and added some ribbon on the coils!!

These are great little gifties for stocking stuffers or gift add-ons and making them gives me a chance to use up some designer papers I have. Also whenever I stamp an image to work with, I usually stamp up at least one extra, in case I screw up or something with the first one. So I have a bunch of already stamped images on my desk to pull out and play with for these notepads!!



I took a couple of them with me to work one day and the ladies went NUTS for them! Sooooo I will be making up a bunch and bringing them in.....I'm sure they'll sell like hotcakes!! AND my Bind-it-All machine is finally getting used!!!
