No banner picture today as I’m writing from Halifax on my lunch break…

I’ve got a quick little Christmas project to show you today that didn’t even take 30 minutes to put together as I had a pre-chosen layout (PWCO Sunday Sketch #50) and I used the same layout on both items but did a landscape and a portait version using the same papers/cardstock. 

The creation on the left is a notepad – it’s done the same way as the ones I posted yesterday using a 4X5.5″ notepad covered in kraft cardstock.

I used elements from a diecut sheet from My Mind’s Eye – I used the colorful christmas line from last year – I waited for it to go on sale this year – that’s a money saving tip for you.  My stuff is usually one year behind as it tends to go on sale and believe it or not it’s okay if you aren’t using papers from this season’s collection.  It’s all gorgeous so just use what you like!

I pop dotted the die cuts to give them a little more dimension on the card and the notepad and I added a couple of buttons for a homespun feeling. 

When I get back to St. John’s I think I’m going to start some Halloween projects so stay tuned!   I’ve got the new K&Co paper pad and I’m itching to get started!
