Notice the Details Blog Hop....

Welcome to the December SOTM Blog Hop using Notice the Details (available only during the month of December).  We have over 60 Consultants participating this  month and it should be an interesting month with lots of great artwork!!!  This stamp set has 41 images and is GREAT for just about anything!!!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you've come from Jill's Blog, you're on the right track.  If you happen to get lost along the way you can always check in at Jena's Blog for a complete list and pick up where you left off!!!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I chose to use the Grace Paper Packet because it's so warm and masculine!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
My first project is a mini-birthday card measuring 3.5" x 2.5" and the pattern comes from CTMH's Wishes Card Confidence Program (Simple Strip on pg. 37).  I made it with my oldest son in mind who will have a birthday Jan. 1st!!!  The only thing that will fit inside is folded $$$ or you could put a gift card inside (loose as there will be no room for a pocket and such).  I embossed the binder clip using Clear Detail Embossing Powder over the honey ink.  I used Cocoa Grosgrain Ribbon and our corner rounder for the scalloped pocket.  I used a sponge and Cocoa Ink to distress all the paper edges.






----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My second project is a to-do list which measures approximately 8.25" x 2.75".  These have been done on numerous blogs over the past few months and I've made several for Christmas Wish Lists, Honey-Do Lists, etc.  I changed this one up a bit to make it a little smaller so you could get 2 from a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock.

I randomed stamped the front using Honey, Barn Red, Twilight, & Cocoa Ink.    I used a sponge and Cocoa to distress all the paper edges.  I also broke out my Building Block Alphabet to do my initials on the front.  I used our corner rounder to make the scalloped edge at the top of the note pad.  The ribbon is from a LSS (LOVE the wider ribbon) and the button is a Clear Craft Button (soooooooo VERSATILE!!!) backed with some of the B&T and tied with Colonial White Waxy Flax.

Ok....don't forget to hop on over to  JODY'S BLOG to see what super creative project she's come up with!!  She's an AWESOME artist and will not disappoint!!!

You always blow me away with your clever ideas! Where did you get your notepad cut at?

Paige Dolecki said...

Very cool projects! I like how the money will be a surprise in the small card as it doesn't have the tradional size for a money card!
