Recent projects..

I've been reading Jen del Muro's blog (I {heart} 2 stamp) for a while now. She's had a few projects posted recently that I thought I'd give a shot, and I think they turned out quite well. First I made a post-it note holder (directions here) and 2nd, a little tri-fold stationery set (template here). After making the post-it holder (cozy? Can something that's made out of paper be a cozy??), I tried adapting the instructions to make a larger note-pad cover, but I haven't quite perfected it yet. It's close, just not 100% yet.

Anyway, here are some pics of what I've been up to (and uh, excuse the mess. The cave is in need of a good tidying to say the least):
Post-it holder:
Tri-fold set - front:CC posing with the folded set: In Jen's tri-fold, she put a note-card, 3 3" square cards & matching envelopes. I put post-its , a thank you card, and left a spot empty to put a picture. It took some trial and error, but I love it, and think I'll definitely be making more in the weeks to come.And here's the notepad holder. I still have a bit of tweaking to do, but the general idea works. I love the 'crib notes' stamp, andI think it'll make a cute addition to baby gifts, no?
