Dressed up Writing Pads

     I saw some note pads that were "dressed up" in a similar way so when I bought the writing pads, I wanted to dress them up too so I adjusted the measurements to fit them so I could include a pen with each one.  Each pad was done in Stampin' Up! Classic Inks. (All except the red one were stamped with In Colors from Stampin' Up!  The red one is in Real Red.  The Top two are stamped with the Simply Sketched stamp set and the bottom one is stamped with the  Field Flowers stamp set. It just seemed fitting to do two of them with the maple leaf stamp (non Stampin' Up! stamp) for the occasion.

Personalized Post It Note Holders

     Here is a sample of personalized post it note holders I made for the children of a family who just arrived in Canada this past weekend.   The labels were stamped in 4 In Colors from Stampin' Up! and punched out with the Artisan label punch from Stampin' Up!  The bases are made from brown card stock and the mats are from Whisper White card stock and embossed with the Fancy Fan embossing folder (both from Stampin' Up!).
