Make your own sticky Post It notes for your Filofax planner

Hello Friends! I hope you are having a blessed Christmas!

 I have a very simple project for you today for the Craftwell Design Team (I'm almost embarrassed making a whole blog post on it because it's so easy)
 As some of you may know, I've become a little obsessed with my planner! However, I can't find any sticky notes that I love. I'm not really into the cutesy, and I'm not a fan of plain, so I decided to make my own. I originally bought a re-positionable  Elmers glue stick to make these, but of course I couldn't find it when I needed it! Story of my life lately lol. I did know where my Tombow Mono Multi glue was, so I used that and it worked just fine.

Please take a peek at my Zibbet shop

  I use my Personal Holborn Filofax as a wallet. Sometimes the sections are a little small to make notations beyond dates and times. This is where I like to use the sticky notes. I used my eBosser and Fiskars Fuse die to cut the shape. It's a generous size, but still fits the page.

These would make a great present for the person that has everything. I try to give presents that can be used and not take up place in a closet....stationary is almost always appreciated!

I stamped each sheet with one of my beautiful Something Tattered stamps.
(Brushed Corduroy Distress ink. This ink gives a soft look...if you want a crisper look I would suggest a Memento Stamp pad. I think the one I like is called cocoa or chocolate...or some other yummy name :)

As I said, these are very easy:
1. Cut your shape out of copy paper
2. Stamp or decorate each sheet
3. Put a strip of glue at the top of the sheet (I used my finger to flatten the glue line)
If you use the Tombow, make sure wait for the glue to dry so that it become re-positionable ) 
4. Stack and use

Thanks so much for peeking.

Shabby chic gift card/ Money holder for Christmas

Hello Friends!
  Tis the season for gift giving, but there are always those on your list that would prefer a gift card or cash. To me it's boring, but to each his own! Anyway, I try to make the presentation as pretty as I can, so this is what I made.

Please take a peek at my Zibbet shop

I'm not a huge fan of the traditional bright green and red "Christmas" colors, so I went with softer greens and pink.
The top edge of short library pocket has been punched with a Martha Stewart punch. I used the same punch on a piece of scrap design paper and adhered that to the front edge of the pocket.

I made a tag and stamped it with a Something Tattered stamp and tied it with pretty Olive seem Binding.

The flower is made from 4 flowers cut from a Fiskars Fuse flower die with my eBosser, some bling and a button. For my embellishments I like to use Crafters choice The Ultimate Glue. I've haven't lost an embellishment yet when using this. Layered under the vintage image is a piece of lace that I inked up with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. (All of the inking is done with that color)
I added a butterfly and a little bling and that's about it!

Thanks for Peeking and feel free to visit my blog

Sweet Memories Mini album cover

Hello Friends!
 I've got a new Craftwell Design Team project for you today. It's a mini album cover using a Fiskars Fuse die. (To use the Fiskars Fuse dies in your eBosser, you'll need 3 "A" plates)

Please take a peek at my Zibbet shop

I cut the hexagon with Fiskars Fuse die 0269

 Everything has been inked up with Frayed Burlap distress ink. I usually use Vintage Photo, but I wanted a darker, grungier look.
 I love these little epoxy stickers! The hexagon was cut from design paper.....It looks stamped, but it's really just the paper :)
I added a little vintage images and punched butterfly. The little doily peeking out balances the cover.

Super easy as usual lol.
As always, thanks for peeking and feel free to visit my blog at

Fiskars/ Craftwell Design Team Project Shabby Chic note pad as gifts

 Hello Friends!
   Are you looking for an inexpensive little something to give to friends and coworkers for Christmas? Well. I have an easy peasy project for you.Plus, it's very inexpensive....less than $1 each!

 The base of this is a little theme notebook. These are the ones you can get at most dollar stores that cost 4 for $1.00. I used scrap designer paper to cover the notebook and crinkled seam binding for the closure. I added a vintage image and a flower I made with a Fiskars Fuse flower die in my eBosser. Simple tape runner holds everything together!

Please take a peek at my Zibbet shop

I cut 4 organza flowers...folded them in half, and then in half again (should resemble a pie shape) then glued the pointy ends onto a cardstock circle and added the center.

You can see more projects on my blog at 

You can find the digital collage sheets in my Zibbet shop
