Happy Saturday!

We finally got a glimpse of the sun here in New Jersey yesterday.  It’s been unusually hot, but I enjoy seeing the sun and blue skies.  I hope you have some outdoor weekend plans and can spend some time in your craft room.

In yesterday’s post, I gave you the directions for the matching clip board to today’s pocket notebook.  Today, as promised, I have a PDF tutorial for this adorable project.  You can download the tutorial at the end of this post.

Each month, my Stampin’ Up! Team and I get together to talk about the latest and greatest over at Stampin’ Up! and we each create a project to share. I’m a card maker at heart but the ladies are testing my creative abilities with more and more 3-D projects. I’ve been enjoying them and hope to mix it up a little more for you. I think this little pocket notebook is so much fun to create and share.  Alone, or matched with the clip board, it makes a pretty little gift.

I’m listing the supplies I used below and they will also be listed in the tutorial.  If you have any questions at all, feel free to reach out to me.

Here’s What I Used:
  • Basic Black, Basic White, Polished Pink, Bermuda Bay and So Saffron Cardstock;
  • Pattern Party Designer Series Paper (Annual Catalog);
  • Playful Alphabet Dies;
  • Scalloped Contours Dies;
  • Pierced Blooms Dies;
  • Multipurpose Glue and Tear & Tape Adhesive;
  • Small lined note pads purchased at Dollar Tree.  They come 5 to a pack and measure 3 1/2″ x  5″.
  • Mini Ballpoint Pens purchased at Amazon.  They come 48 to a pack and are in assorted colors with blue ink.  The pens measure 3 1/4″ in length.
  • The finished notebook size is 4″ X 5 1/4″. This is a good size to slip into your bag.
