Your Next Stamp December Release Blog Hop
Hello and welcome to the Your Next Stamp December new release blog hop.
This month we are featuring a variety of stamps, including cute animals, fun backgrounds, and my favourite LOTS of coffee related goodies. The dies this month are wonderful too, including a sweet treat box and long awaited stitched oval dies!
This release there is theme to my projects. I am still working on a few final handmade gifts and this month I made a number of new decorated notepad holders. They make a great gift for a teacher, boss, and friends. My first notepad holder, is one made for 3x3 sticky notes. I used the cute Word Critters Cats and Dogs set to decorate this easel style note holder. The paper is Simple Stories We Are Family.
I fussy cut the darling cat and hung him from the heat embossed sentiment. I used embroidery thread to create a ball of yarn to decorate the holder.
The back of the note holder was also decorated.
Here is a look at the stamp set used:
For my second project, I made a book style cover for a 5 x 8 inch notepad and decorated using the fabulous and fun Java Geek and Coffee Rings.
I paper pieced the cute coffee take away cup and featured it on the pattern paper cut using the stitched oval dies. The coffee title was heat embossed on navy cardstock using white embossing powder.
Here is a look at the inside of the holder. I created pockets to hold the notepad, so they can be changed out when they are empty.
