Creation Station - Kinda Eclectic, Altered Notepads


Welcome everyone!  This is The Creation Station, and we are here to inspire you; to fill you with oodles of ideas!

This week's assignment is to create something with the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!  We are also to make some altered notebooks, notepads, etc.

I went a little crazy, and created an entire gift ensemble.  I have thoughts of giving this to my son's teacher.  (I really need to create another set for the other son's teacher!)


Let's start out with the notepad.  Since it's back to school season (that's a season right?) I always stock up on my own supplies, they are on sale - why not!  I love these notepads that are 5x8" - perfect for doctoring up - and the cover takes just one sheet of cardstock.


I decided I was going to decorate some sticky notepads too, but was wanting something cute to put them in.....Guess what!  Our new (available August 28th!) Gift Box Punch Board to the rescue!  I created a box in the 3.25"x 3.25"x 2.25"  size.



It holds perfectly altered sticky notes!


But that's not all.....I also created some altered clothespins, and they fit in there perfectly too!  What's not to love?



Here are those sticky notes again.

Just think, lots of projects with just one stamp set, a little bit of cardstock and some designer series paper!




If you look closely, I even stamped the piece of cardstock that I attached the clothespins to.

Well....I'm sure you are looking for more inspiration - head over to Ilina's blog for some jaw dropping fun, or go back to Justin's blog to see his masterpieces!
