Hello readers! Welcome to the Great Gifts Blog Hop! Today we are sharing great gift ideas from the Great Gifts CD from Technique Junkies using stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and papers and embellishments from eclectic Paperie. This is going to be a fun blog hop full of wonderful ideas, so settle in with your favorite beverage and get ready for some wonderful eye candy!
For my project today, I created a Pocket Post It Pad. This tutorial can be found on the Great Gifts CD along with 39 other tutorials (40 total). Wanna see all the great things you can make from this CD? Here is a link to the Table of Contents for the Great Gifts CD - you can see samples of each of the tutorials here.
I used the beautiful Snowflake Silhouettes stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I love the different sizes of snowflakes and that wonderful sentiment. The gorgeous striped paper in the background is from Echo Park's Winter Wishes paper pad (from eclectic Paperie) and the buttons from the Ice collection at eclectic Paperie are a perfect match with this paper. I tied some baker's twine around the little section in the middle that houses the pen, and I stuck one of the beautiful Crystal Trinket Pins behind the sentiment. eclectic Paperie has a wonderful variety of embellishments to use on all of your crafting projects.
In the picture below, you can see the inside of my Pocket Post It Pad. I stamped some more of those beautiful snowflakes with some Versamark ink all over the inside of the cover. I am going to slip this inside a pretty little bag and give this to my grandmother for Christmas. She's always writing down notes, whether it's a grocery list, appointments, what time she put a roast in the oven and what time she needs to take it out, and reminders to send out birthday cards to all her friends and family. :-)
