Glitter Queens Blog Hop Day 3

Welcome to the last day of the Glitter Queens Blog Hop! We’re so glad that you are joining us today!  If you happened to visit my blog yesterday,  you might have been unable to access it.  I apologize for that.  I had a few problems with my server but all is well now!

On to my project – a paper covered notepad.  I found these 3 x 5 notepads on Amazon and thought they would be so cute covered with Stampin’ Up! cardstock and DSP!  Who wouldn’t enjoy receiving one of these??

The cover of the notepad is a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock that extends up and over the notepad to about 1-1/2″ on the back.  My sentiment is from the Sale-a-bration stamp set, You Brighten My Day.  Did you know that with a $50 purchase (before shipping/tax), you can receive this set absolutely FREE? Sale-a-bration is still in full swing and with every $50 purchase, you can pick a free product.  Place a $100 order and you choose 2 products.  Click HERE to see the Sale-a-bration catalog.

I used the Note Tag punch for the sentiment and the Glimmer paper.  I finished it up with flowers using  the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and a pearl in the center of each one.

Here’s one more!  So quick and easy!  The paper is so beautiful all by itself that you don’t need to add much by way of embellishments!  All of the products I used for both notepads can be found at the end of the post.

    Hi, Tracy. I love the note pads but my favorite these past 3 days is the flower card from yesterday. Thank you for sharing.

      Carol, I am so glad you liked the Dahlia card and note pads! I’ve been working on a few more flower cards. It is hard to stop making them!

    All our projects and cards are awesome. I really enjoyed learning the dahlia fold. I love flowers and I am going to try this technique this weekend. Your post it notes are awesome too!
    Thanks so much for sharing with us!!!!

    Love all the projects but especially the covered notepad. The colors are beautiful and the sentiment is so true!

    • Tracy says:

      KFisher, thank you! I am so glad you like the covered notepad. It is such a cute size and who can’t use notepads!?

  6. Elizabeth says:

    I love the Covered Notepads. Your other projects are all so creative but my favorite is the notepads. Can’t get enough of that DSP!

    • Tracy says:

      Elizabeth, I love that DSP too! Such beautiful colors! I am so glad you enjoyed seeing the notepads. Thank you for your nice words!

  7. Both are gorgeous. Beautiful as always! I like your Dahlia card very much.
    Thanks for the fun hop. Enjoyed all your creations.

  8. All of your projects were wonderful and I got some great ideas to try myself. I loved the card using the Hello thinlit to create a unique embossed background. I am obsessed with those thinlits and am always looking for new ways to use them.

    • Tracy says:

      Christy, thank you for your kind comments! I am so happy that I have given you some new ideas. I agree that the Thinlits are awesome. I am hoping Stampin’ Up! will keep bringing us more word Thinlits! Thanks for visiting!

    All your projects were beautiful and inspiring but I think I liked the faux embossing using the thinlits best. I love using dies to cut perfect cuts and your idea to use them in different ways is genius!!
