flavorful notepads and stickies

i think i'm making up for lost time here. either that or i have a lot of projects from wayyy back to show you.

this one is from over a month ago when i made some bridal shower party favors for my sister who was the maid of honor in her college roomie's wedding. i got to use some artistic license because i knew the friend, and the colors... so i was basically given free reign to make the 'right choices' in regards to patterns, layout, etc.

here's a stack of notepads i covered. my main focal point has Coredinations cardstock as the scalloped circle and base of the pad... i really LOVED working with that cardstock--super sturdy!

and oh, how i love pom poms :D

down here you can kind of see the spread of what i did... smaller 3x3 post-it pads, notebooks for jotting things down, etc. i coordinated everything, and i used some SEI papers along with a sheet or two from DCWV. i absolutely LOVE how all of them turned out, but they never would have happened without some ideas from Dawn McVey and Paulina. they are the ones who displayed how to do some of these tricks :D

thanks for stopping by again. my advice to those of you stuck in a card-making rut... go make something else! i know that making these 40 items (20 each) was so much fun for me :)
