Woohoo! It’s another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop and today our theme is Love/Hearts. I’m using the Love & Happiness Bundle to make a sweet little notepad Valentine gift.
Love & Happiness Notepad
I used the Love & Happiness Bundle from the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog to make this sweet little gift. This is a beautiful bundle with words for all LOVEly occasions from Valentine’s Day to Engagements, Weddings and Anniversaries. This bundle includes not only a stamp set and dies, but also a Hybrid Embossing Folder that embosses and cuts out a heart at the same time!
A Sweet Little Gift
I used Basic Black cardstock for the base, then measured, cut and scored to create the perfect size for a 3″ sticky note pad. The spine is cut, scored and glued to allow a spot for an ink pen to be attached.
I found these cute little ink pens online, and although they are supposed to be red, they are really closer to Melon Mambo, so I used that color on the embossed and cut front.
I also found these white 3′ x 3″ sticky note pads online, and they are perfect for this little gift project.
After embossing and cutting a Melon Mambo square with the Hybrid Embossing folder from the Love & Happiness Bundle, I adhered the square to my base and wrapped it with White Glittered Organdy Ribbon.
I used a Dauber with our Whisper White ink to lighten up the embossing on the heart and attached it with Dimensionals (which also secured the ribbon).
Using other dies from the Love & Happiness Bundle, I cut the small heart and flowers from Blushing Bride and stamped the heart using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Basic Rhinestone jewels gave the finishing touch.
