Pretty Notepads

The past week, I did have a little time to create!  I had a few of these junior note pads and used the "Charming" stamp set from Stampin' UP! 
 I used soft suede ink and stamped on each page of the notepad.  Just turn on the tv or the radio and stamp away!

Next I took some beautiful, retired DSP from SU! and scalloped the bottom,distressed it on the edges and attached it to the notepad using sticky strip. I also added just a small edge of soft suede cardstock using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch and Baja Breeze Seam Binding ribbon from SU!
This is what the finished notepad looks like:

 Sorry for the photo not being so clear and bright! We have had such cloudy, wet weather I couldn't go outside for some natural light and I used what I could!

I love how my tag turned out!  I used the SU! tag punch, stamped one of the Charming stamps on some DSP, added a SU! brad and tied it to the ribbon with some SU! twine. 

I made 6 of these for gifts to have on hand. When I reach 500 blog posts, I will have to give one away as blog candy - sound good??

Thanks for stopping by ~ Gail
