Spring Notebook and Cards

I had some leftover patterned paper from THIS PROJECT so I decided to use up my scraps before cleaning up my area. I noticed that this photo from my Inspiration File has lots of the fun colors I used on my projects so I thought I would share. Using my scraps, I made two square cards that I'll probably use for Mother's Day, and a little idea book to keep in my tote.
By making my cards 4.25" square, I was able to place my sentiment circle off the top of the card. The cards still fit in regular A2 size envelopes.
For my notebook, I created a round embellishment by using the *Absolutely Fabulous* sentiment from Mixed Messages and then spelling out *ideas* using small alphabet stamps. I also reach for more of those big honkin' Vintage Buttons that I love so much. I just scattered them on my notebook along the strips of ribbon. Notebook from Target.
Here's a little closeup shot of the buttons and the circle embellishment.

Supplies used for this project:
Paper: Bitty Dots Basics patterned paper, Kraft Cardstock
Buttons: Vintage Buttons in White, Aqua Mist, Hibiscus Burst, Ripe Avocado
Other: twine string

Tip: Use up all supplies from one project before moving to the next project. If you think *I'll save these little pieces for another project*.....they'll most likely end up cluttering your space. Use it all up now, clean up.....then move on to your next project. It's a good thing. Enjoy your Sunday everyone!!

LOVE the notebook, Michelle - I need to crank out an easy-enough giftable today and I think this is it! I always love that you remember to make things for yourself too! Have a great day!

Ooh, I used todays tip before you even told me to, lol! I made your Rib-n-Strips today and I only wanted to do one card at first but I still had 3 more Rib-n-Strips so I figured i'd better use them while all of my supplies were out. :) I'm posting the cards on my blog-o later. Hope you're enjoying your weekend!

I need to follow your tip for today! I always end up saving my scraps, especially from papers that I "love" at the time. After a while, the newness wears off and I don't "love" them snymore!!

That little notebook is so cute. I try hard to use it before I move on but with 12 X 12 papers, I get tired of using it before it is gone. I am throwing away little pieces of cardstock now (thanks to you). Have a fun day.
