Sticky Note Holders with Butterflies

Friday, January 18, 2019

I'm gearing up for my first market stall in a few years and have been a busy little bee putting together cards, bunting, and other bits and bobs such as these darling little sticky note holders.  


Aren't they just the cutest?  I decorated them with the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper Stack after making the holders with the coordinating cardstock.


The butterflies were coloured in using my Stampin' Blends in various colours.  At the moment the butterfly stamp set, Butterfly Gala, is bundled with a matching punch so that you can purchase them both at 10% off.  Great deal!

Now watch my video below to see how I put them together and how to get the little magnets on and in just the right place then read on for the measurements of the pieces.


Quick shot of the inside and we're done!!  (Don't forget to decorate your large butterfly with some embellishments of your choice.)


Measurements: 
Cardstock: 8" x 3 1/4"
DSP: 3 1/8" x 2", 3 1/8" x 1 7/8"
Score on the long side at 2", 2 3/8", 5 1/2", 5 7/8"

CASEd from Pootles (Sam Donald) with huge thanks.

Peachy Thanks

I am on a mission to use more DSP on my cards this year.  I have sadly neglected all the gorgeous pages that lie in a box, their beauty hidden to the world.  But, no more!  You are going to see a LOT more patterned papers in my cards from now on.


Both the peaches and the background are from the from the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP.  Sadly it has retired now but this is a layout you can easily recreate using a whole range of patterns in your DSP drawer (go on, admit it, you have one too, don't you?  Get stuck into them crafters!  Let their beauty out!)


The sentiment seemed just right with two peaches and is from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  I popped them on squares cut using the Layering Squares framelits.


 The colours of the cardstock are Mint Macaron, Mango Medley and Whisper White.

Happy crafting,

Baby

Thanks for all you do

My neighbour recently had a beautiful baby boy and asked if I could make her three special thank you cards for the medical teams who looked after her.  What an honour!  I hope they love these as much as I do.


Because she wanted to write a great deal inside the card, she asked if I could make them A5 size which I was happy to do.  This allowed me the room to make a background myself using stamps from the A Little Wild stamp set which I coloured in using Stampin' Blends.


I fussy cut out one of the images to stick on the end of my sentiment banner (stamped from the Friendly Expressions stamp set).  The base cardstock is Balmy Blue and the banner is Daffodil Delight.
