Blog Hop!

The Stamping With Others has a monthly Blog Hop on the 7th of every month. This month's theme was using one of the Sale-A-Bration products that are free with a $50.00 Purchase! I chose to use the Flowering Fields 141300 (wood mount) or 141303 (clear mount) stamps and make 3 post it note holders. I wish I could take full credit for the basic design but I found all of them on YouTube. I also used Another Thank You Photo Polymer stamps.

Version 1

originally created by: Noreen's Kitchen

This is the simplest of the 3.

I used Delightful Dijon trimmed to 3.5 X 8.5 inches.
It is scored at the following: 1 1/2, 1 7/8, 5 and 5 3/8

For inks I used Mint Macaron and Cucumber Crush - embellishments are Basic Pearls.
You will also need velcro dots to secure the flap and Glue Dots or a Snail to hold the Post-It-Note pad.

Stamp and add embellishments before folding along score lines. Add the Sticky Notes and velcro strips. Total time to make 10 minutes.

Version 2

A little more complex but gives you a hard cover holder.

What you'll need:
Designer Series paper cut to: 7 1/2 X 3 3/4 inches - exterior cover.
                                               7 X 4 inches - interior cover - you may need to trim this before you put            
                                                                       it on.

Whisper White Cardstock cut to 3 X 3 inches
Card board cut: (2) 3 1/4 X 3 1/4 and 1 at 1 1/2 X 3 1/4
Multi Purpose Glue or Fast Fuse Adhesive.
I used Tip Top Taupe Designer series paper and ink.

 - Center the 1 1/2 inch wide cardboard in the longest sheet of designer series paper, and glue. Hopefully your ruler does centimeters as well as inches - but you need to mark 1/2 centimeter on each side of the cardboard. Line up both 3 1/4 X 3 1/4 on either side and glue. 

- Trim all 4 corners at a diagonal.

- Fold down trim and glue to the cardboard.

- Glue the 7 X 4 inch piece on the inside.

- Glue the Sticky Note (Post-It-Note) to the inside of the book. (Prior to doing this you can paint the edges of your Sticky Notes with a metallic spray paint. I would suggest cutting a 3rd piece of 3 1/4 X 3 1/4 piece of cardboard before doing this to keep the edges from flying up.)

- Stamp the image on the Whisper White with your design and glue to your book.

Notice I cut my cardboard too small and so my Whisper White piece covers the whole. This took about an hour with waiting for the glue to dry.

Version 3

Have to admit this one is my favorite for the busy professional.

Originally Designed by ChicnScratch

Warning: This one is complex (and the one you see is actually the second one I did.)

I used Cucumber Crush - Designer Series, Cardstock, and Ink and Whisper White Cardstock. 

You will need:

Cardstock cut to 8 X 5 1/2
Whisper White Cardstock cut to 2 1/2 X 4 1/2 and 3 1/2 X 5 1/4
Designer Series Paper cut to 2 3/4 X 4 3/4, 3 3/4 X 5 1/2, and 1/2 X 3 1/4 (this last one is optional as you can use ribbon)
Sticky notes - 3X3 and mini.
Snail Adhesive


- Score the 8 X 5 1/2 at 3 3/4 and 4 1/4
- Fold along score lines and set aside - this is the holder.
- Using the 3 3/4 X 5 1/2 score at 1/4 inch on three sides and fold - along score lines
- Adhere to the 3 1/2 X 5 1/4 whisper white by the flaps. This creates the pocket. 
- Using a large oval punch or by eyeballing create a notch in the open side.
- Use Snail adhesive to the back of the front of your holder on the opposite size.
- Find the pen you wish to use - I just happened to have a gel pen that matched but a simple pen will  
  work fine. Place the 3X3 on the page and determine location of the pen - I put it near the inside fold, 
  but you can put it on the outside.
- using the 1/2 X 3 1/4 adhere one side where it will be under the Sticky Note using the snail (you can 
  also use Fast Fuse) Double check spacing with the Sticky Note and make a loop that the pen will fit 
  in. and glue to the where the end will be under the Sticky Note.
- Using Snail Adhesive adhere the Sticky Notes.
- Adhere the 2 3/4 X 4 3/4 Designer Series paper to the front cover.
- Stamp the Whisper White 2 1/2 X 4 1/2 with your designs.
- Adhere the Whisper White to the Designer Series Paper. 

This one took me about an hour and a half. Mainly because I ended up having to make 2.

Now that you've completed all three sit back and smile at your accomplishment!
