Happy Mother's Day! A Noteable Gingham Garden Gift

Hi there everyone!  I hope you are having a wonderful Mother's Day today!

I've got a fun little gift to share with you.  We created these notepads at my most recent Crafts and Cocktails event.  I made a couple - one for my mom, one for my mother in law, one to give away (keep reading!) and one for ME!   They are so cute and pretty easy to whip up - especially the way all of the papers in the Gingham Garden DSP Pack coordinate with each other.  And I've got a little bit of a crush on these papers!

 I layered up several patterns of paper and topped them off with some washi tape, a doily, and some die cut letters.

I added some washi tape to the top corner, and topped it off with our new Vintage buttons!  These are really  cute, and I love that they have a flat back, making it easy to glue onto projects.

I created a pocket on the front of the notepad, with a pull-out tag.  I can write a message on the tag if I want to!  And of course, I embellished it a bit.  The washi tape is so easy to work with, if you don't like where you've put it, it lift back up easily so you can move it around til you're content.

I also duded up a pad of sticky notes.  Aren't these just stinkin' adorable???  It just seems so flirty and fun.

Now - I wanted to gift this - so needed some cute packaging!  No prob....I whipped up a matching gift bag:

And to hold the bag closed - I created a magnetic clip!  Multi purpose there!

Let's hear it - would you love this little gift?  How about a give away!  Leave me a comment, and one lucky person will get this package mailed to them!  You have until Thursday, May 16th to comment, and this will ship out on Friday!
