Post it note holder

Just to show that Stampin' Up! products are wonderfully versatile I thought I would make a non-card project.  I'm always known to be frighteningly organised and am thinking ahead to birthday and Christmas presents already and thought that this would make a nice gift along with some personalised stationery.  Watch this space for the rest of the set!

I used Rose Red cardstock and stamping ink, Broadsheet alphabet, shimmer ink (applied with a sponge dauber), whisper white grosgrain ribbon (stuck with sticky strip) and some stampin' dimensionals to put on the initial.  Butterfly and flower are from the 'For Everything' set.

Taking the plunge!

I'm never usually one to take my time or not to try things, but somehow starting out with Stampin' Up! has me scared.  But now I'm being brave.... I've posted an invite on a local company's website inviting people to contact me if they'd like to try out learning to make baby cards and birth announcements and I'm about to put up a poster at my local shop to see if I can get some interest and make some new crafting buddies.  Wish me luck!
