holly jolly Christmas notes

Today, we ran in early to get flu shots. Josey got hers, I had to run to Walgreens to get mine and Jordan couldn't get hers because she had a low fever last night. She's home today watching Sponge Bob. I'm going to be her little nurse maid in between working on my Ali Edward's class.........and I'm going to organize a Holiday Inspiration Station. So stay tuned!

Today I have a few notepads to show you using Papertrey's Holiday Button Bits and some new Basic Grey holiday paper I scored at Archiver's last weekend.For the Santa image, I stamped him and colored him in with Copic markers. I colored and paper pieced his head/beard and popped it up on top of the button. I used two SU! dimensionals and got just the right height. A shiny Pure Poppy Vintage Button is used for his chubby belly. For the sentiments, I used *holly jolly Christmas* from Holiday Button Bits and paired it with *notes* from my Take Note set....cute combo, huh? Tiny ric rac and red velvet ribbon finish off the notebooks.
My system this year is to make a few for myself and make a few for the shop. That way I'll have goodies to share with you....and goodies to give out to my friends and family. (FYI..these are sold out already in the shop but I'll have more holiday notebooks soon so keep checking).


Well, I'm off to warm up a heat bag for Jordy....poor little squirt. Stay healthy everyone!!

Mish These are so cute and always a great idea. I love the new picture of yourself. I was at the CHA show and told you you needed that new picture. Just beautiful inside and out.

Poor Jordan! Hope she's feeling better soon! Thanks for sharing your Christmas notepads with us today.. I am working on a few myself, as we speak. Just taking a little break to check out the blog world. :) Great job, as always!

Love making the Christmas notepads for gifts. Is there a secret to keeping the cover closed. Mine don't seem to want to stay closed and just pop up. Is it the weight of the embellishments that keep it closed? Any help is appreciated.
