Hey everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. I had a fun stamping class on Friday and a quiet Saturday morning (I was home alone – all the boys were gone). Sunday afternoon we went to Georgia Tech for the New Student Convocation – Kyle is an official Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket with his very own Rat Cap. I know the Rat Cap is an old tradition but some how during the years that I was there I don’t think they gave one to every freshman like they do now – I don’t think I every had one and Greg doesn’t remember having one either and neither of us remember going to the Convocation Ceremony. I’ll post a couple of pictures probably tomorrow.
On to a stamping project. I saw this cute little project at the airport while we waited to find out about our canceled flight. I didn’t actually get one of these but a demonstrator I met at the airport was nice enough to let me see hers and take pictures. It was the cutest idea and I don’t know who made it.
The holder is cut from the Stampin’ Up! Two Tags die using the Big Shot Die-Cut machine. This is the tag that folds over. I also used the Big Shot to cut the letters for “notes” using the Billboard Alphabet Sizzlit Strip die.
We made this in my class on Friday and in the morning class I told the girls that I didn’t like the little hole showing from the tag but I couldn’t decide what to do with it. Someone suggested that we cover it with another leaf punch and that is exactly what we did.
I decided to add the post it notes on the inside with a hole so they could go on the ring – I was afraid they would fall out otherwise. I know in my purse they would. The swap that I saw just had them attached on the inside but not going through the ring. I took a normal sized mini post-it note pad and split it into four pieces – so this is 1/4 of a pad. The Crop-A-Dile will punch through it and the card stock tag with no problem.
I added some of the Peach Parfait Ribbon to the book ring.
It’s a cute little project don’t you think?
I am continuing with Round 1 of Monika’s Blog Bingo. Round 2 is full and I’m taking names for Round 3 right now which is close to being full too. See this POST for more details.
Here is piece #5 – the cupcake image from the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set (stamped in Poppy Parade.
Thanks for stopping by today!
