February Key Ingredients Blog Hop

February 20, 2012

Hey there, everyone!  Long time no post...so sorry for that!  I really needed a creative week off, and in place I did a lot of cleaning around the house, etc.  It was a good week for me, and I am feeling much more inspired and invigorated to create again!

Today is the February Key Ingredients Blog Hop, and our theme for this month is "Take Note".  I took the theme quite literally, and covered this little notepad that I keep in the kitchen to take notes of from phone calls, or write out our grocery list.  The colors in this kit are perfect for a little pad that you leave in the kitchen...they even FEEL like they were meant for that room!  Tee hee!  Here is what I created!
"Just A Note" supplies:
Paper/Ribbon/Flower/Pearls: Taylored Expressions February Key Ingredients kit
Stamps: Taylored Expressions (Vintage Dreamer)
Ink: Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black)

Instructions:  Layer two pieces of paper together to create cover for the front, then zig zag stitch along the edges.  Tie ribbon around the seam, then add a flower to the center of the bow.  Stamp the damask to the top half, and the sentiment to the bottom half.  Accent with pearls, then adhere to the front of the notepad using permanent adhesive.  

There you have it...quick and easy, and now you have a pretty little notepad!!  If you aren't a subscriber to the Key Ingredients kit yet, here are some perks!!
