At the beginning of June I held my Stampin’ UP! 2019 -2020 Catalog launch. Everyone made a couple of make-n-takes, got their copy of the new catalog and a little gift from me to thank them for coming and their on-going support for my card-crafting business.
The gift was a little decorated notepad showcasing the new Garden Lane Designer Series Paper as well as the new Timeless Label Punch. This has to be one of my most favorite papers in the new catalog – I just love all the fresh greens and how they all work so beautifully together…….. and don’t get me started on the Timeless Label Punch – I don’t think it has been out of my hands since the UPS man delivered it!
The little notepads measure 5 x 3 1/2 and are 3/16 thick, for this size I cut the cover 6 x 3 1/2 – this is the width of the notepad then the length plus 1″ for attaching it to the back of the pad. I scored @ 3/4 then @ 15/16 (I can hear you going uugghhh but my paper trimmer has 1/16 markings and if you have the Stampin’ UP! trimmer then so will yours 🙂 )
When attached to the notepad it leaves a 1/16 overhang on the bottom edge of the pad which makes it very easy to open!
I used Tear and Tape double sided tape to attach this to the back of the notepad – this provides a strong bond – I would hate it to fall apart on the first use!
You can see I have selected various of the greens within the DSP to make covers and the decorative layers, Mossy Meadow, Mint Macaron, Soft Seafoam.
Layer 1: 4 1/4 x 3 Card
Layer 2: 4 x 2 3/4 DSP
Banner 3 x 1/2 Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink Colors: Mossy Meadow
The greeting is from the Crafting Forever Stamp Set – just perfect for this occasion! It is cut with 1 1/2 circle punch then layered onto card cut with the Timeless Label punch; attached together with some Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive then onto the notepad with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals. The leaves are cut with the Leaf Punch and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to finish.
I think I made about 30 in all and my ladies were thrilled with them – you can’t say thank you too many times!
Now you might have different size notepads – my tip is to measure the length and the width then add 3/4″ for attaching at the back then add the thickness of the of notepad.
