Coaster Post-It Note Holder

I received a lovely coaster post-it note holder from my good friend Kim. Of course, I had to make one too! This is another simple and fast project that took under a half hour to complete.

Supplies include a medium weight coaster, modge podge, designer paper of your choice (I used Basic Grey Blush Collection), a binder clip, ribbon, bling, and a post-it note pack.

First, I traced my designer paper on the coaster. I cut it out using my favorite Tim Holtz Tonic Scissors (the best!!) and I adhered it using Modge Podge (of course I used modge podge right?). I then inked up the edges of my coaster using my Tim Holtz Distess Ink in Fired Brick. I attached a piece of the designer paper to the binder clip and also adhered it using Modge Podge. Next, I stuck the post-it notes to the finished coaster and clipped it down with my binder clip. Finally, I added a matching ribbon to the binder clip, a Prima flower and some bling =)

Thank you for reading. Leave me a comment so that I can come and visit you too! I hope you are having a wonderful week =)

RockBottom Scrapbook Supplies Challenge

I have a yahoo group where members get discounts at products sold at my store, Wish On A Scrap. Members also get previews to the monthly contest kit before I release it to the general public. We regularly host contests and challenges for our members. My group is moderated by my dear friend Deb of Itty Bitty Ink Spots. She is an amazing person and I am so lucky to have her help me run the group. Last week, Deb put together a card sketch for members of the group to participate. Of course, I could not help myself and made a card for the sketch.

I flipped the sketch a bit so that it could work with my images. All of the stamps are from Stampendous. I used my Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Shabby Shutters and Broken China for the images and inking the edges of the cardstock. The designer paper was picked up on sale at one of the majors. The cardstock and punches are Stampin Up. I used my copic markers and copic blender pen to color in the flower and then popped it up with 3D Sticky Squares. I accented the leaf of the flower with Stickles in stardust and patina. In the middle of the flower is a jeweled brad by Heidi Swapp.

Please do not forget to leave comments. I love to know that you stopped by. I love visiting blogs =) Feel free to join our group too. The link is on the right side of the blog. Have a great day!


Wish On A Scrap Mini Pizza Box Treats

This is my first attempt at making a mini pizza box. I got the tutorial from Scor-Pal Summer Magazine. I used the papers from the August Contest Kit at my store, Wish On A Scrap.

The supplies for this project include a Scor-Pal, Marvy Punches, a stamped image of your choice, Copic markers, Terrifically Tacky Tape, Glossy Accents, and 3D Sticky Squares.

The tutorial was easy to follow for making the mini pizza box. Next, I decorated the box with my supplies. I used the glossy accents to make the green trim around my cupcake look glassy. The 3D squares were added to make the project look dimensional and were used in between the cupcake image and the Marvy punches. You could easily substitute the Marvy Punches with any of the Nestabilities shapes. Finally, I filled the mini pizza box up with some delicious treats =)

Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate the thoughtful comments =) The September Contest Kits will be shipping out the first week of September. Be sure to check the preview out at the store blog for Wish On A Scrap. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
