Hi there hens!! Are ya ready for another round of Sneak Peeks from Taylored Expressions?? Woo-hoo!! Today's sneak peek is featuring a new set being released this Friday called "Take Note". This set contains three labels and multiple sentiments too! I can think of a ton of different note pads to make with this set and what fun gifts they make too. Take for instance my little Grocery Lists notepads here. I made these for my Sister, Sister in Law and Aunt and they all three LOVED 'em!!
I started by stamping the label onto some Choice CS and then used two of the sentiments in the set "Grocery" and "List" and stamped them inside. These little Post It Notes are the 4x4 size and worked perfectly with the 8 1/2 x 11 CS from Taylored Expressions. Using the short side of the CS, I cut the CS just a little wider then the pad and scored the center with two parallel lines a 1/4" apart. This fit the notepad perfectly and I was able to make two from one sheet of CS. I used some Sticky Tape on the back side of the notepad to adhere it to the CS and then I decorated the front with some DP, ribbon, and my label of course.
Then I just HAD to make matching pens!! Tee-hee!! Oh yeah, this was HARD!! Pffftt!! Seriously, it took like one minute!! All ya gotta do is roll some of the DP into tubes and slide it into the barrel of the pen and that's it! What a great little addition to the notepads and super simple to boot! Taylored Expressions is also offering a new line of dies that coordinate with this set too! You're sure to want to include these with this set for easy cutting of the labels. Now to finish my little notepads, I adhered a business card magnet to the back, so you can hang them on the fridge, and I also added a little magnet to the pen and top corner of the notepad so the pen will always be handy!! If you're like me, seems I always have the pen or the pad but never BOTH!! Ok, that's it for me today, be sure to leave a cluck below and let me know what ya think, ok? Wanna see some more great ideas for the Take Note set? Check out the rest of the Baker's Dozen below!
I've been a crafter all my life but finally found an outlet for my passion for paper about 9 years ago and I've been stamping ever since! I'm married to the most WONDERFUL man in the whole wide world, and we've just recently become grandparents to our SWEET grandson Jaxon! I work full time but hide out in my COOP (stamp room) every chance I get! I LOVE this hobby of mine, and sharing my creations with you here in the HEN HOUSE. I hope you enjoy your visit! Awwwk!
