and a partridge in a pear tree....

Well, not exactly a partridge... maybe it's a bluebird? Anyway I made these cute little notepad booklets for my guests at last week's open house. I think they turned out so cute!!! I love this set - Cheep Talk - I was so ithing to ink it up especially after a couple of weeks of Always.

So I had to pull out Kiwi Kiss, So Safron and Confetti White paper. I stamped the branches in Kiwi Kiss and the bird in Pacific Point. I used a marker on his beak and legs (Summer Sun and Chocolate Chip). The pear is from teh So Tweet On Board Chipboard. The leaves are Kiwi, stem is Chocolate Chip and for the pear I colored it with Summer Sun first and then rolled the edges in Kiwi Kiss. Then I embossed it with clear to give it a nice little shine.

The ribbon is available through the Sale-a-Bration promotion going on right now (for each $50 purchase you can select an item from the Sale-a-Bration catalog for FREE). I added a cute paperclip too. It has a chocolate chip flower underneath and a felt flower with brad on top.

The next photo is the inside. I found these short mechanical pencils that worked perfectly. I used the ribbon as a holder. Opposite the paper pad is a littl pocket for notes or whatever. I decorated that with a strip of Good Morning Sunshine designer series paper.

I am making more of these to sell at Mugs, the coffee shop I work at on Saturdays. Maybe I'll bring a few to my day job too. It's a cute little gifty thing.

Have a great day! Happy stamping!
