My craft show is just a few weeks away, and here is another item for the table. I modified a design at Dawn's Stamping Thoughts where she made a cover for post-it-notes. I wanted to do a similar design with the half of a small legal pad so I changed the 7 3/8" x 3 1/4" base to 7 3/8" x 8 1/4". Check out her video tutorial here as it is very easy to follow.
Stamp Set: Day of Gratitude
Card Stock: Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla
Stamp Pads: Cajun Craze, Versamark
Other: Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke and More Mustard Markers, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch, Autumn Spice Designer Series Paper,

I have had these metal tins in the basement for several years and finally decided to pull them out of the box and make something. With the holidays approaching, I thought I would make a few gift items to have on hand. I used the Pawsitively Prints II Designer Series Paper to cover the tin and clip board and accent the recipe dividers. I used modgepodge to adhere the paper to the clipboard and sticky strip on the tin.
The alphabet set Lovely Letters Alphabet was used to stamp out RECIPES. I created a Word file with the different categories of recipes and used the Round Tab Extra Large Punch to punch out the dividers. I was pleased to discover the clipboard fit inside the box for easy gift giving. Enjoy!

Fall is in the air in Minnesota, and the colors in my neighborhood are beautiful. This inspired me to make this card for my sister.
Stamp Set: Autumn Splendor, Perfect Punches
Card Stock: Garden Green, Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze, Chocolate Chip
Markers: Garden Green, Cajun Craze
Other: Word Window and Wide Oval Punch, pearls, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Crystal Effects, sponge, dimensionals
Stamp Pads: Garden Green, Cajun Craze, More Mustard
I wanted to add dimension to the card so I cut out two of the oak leaves and two of the maple leaves along with a set of acorns. I used dimensionals to raise them up and then added crystal effects to make the leaves shine.
