Every time I do a vendor show I seem to have one item that is a "best seller." It is a little pack of notcards in a holder made with a 6x6 page protector. I have heard that the concept has been around for quite a few years but I just learned how to make them about a year ago. I love them and they are so simple. It is also a fantastic way to use up some scraps of Designer Series Paper. I made a few using some retired colors and prints and some with new. Here are just a few of them:
My favorite is the set with the Apple Blossom stamp set. It reminds me of fall back home in Michigan. When I see red apples this time of the year, I always think of the cider mill we used to visit with round tables covered in red checked tablecloths where we sat to have donuts and cider. This is the entire packet:
I used the checked paper from Pawsitively Prints II that actually coordinates with Poppy Parade. But, I absolutely LOVE it with Cherry Cobbler!! Whooda thunk it???? :) I think they came out so cute!!! Thoughts are going through my mind to change this notecard up a bit for one of my samples for Sherrill Graff. This combo would even be cute for Christmas or Valentine's Day. I hope you won't get sick of seeing it :) LOL!!
The notecards are made from the Notecards in the 2010-2011 catalog and can be purchased HERE. I love it because you can get 5 of these from one pack of the notecards. So, not only are they adorable, they are affordable!! I am putting together a class packet that can be purchased for $25. It includes everything you need to make 5 notecard packets with embellishments. The only thing you need to add are the stamp sets and adhesive. The price includes priority mail shipping. Look for the BUY NOW button under my classes and tutorials in the next couple of days. Or, if you are in the San Diego area and would like to hold a class for yourself and a group of friends, contact me to set a date. Thanks for coming by today and sharing with me. 'Til next time...........
