Post-It note and pen holder

I have a little crafty project to share today that is not a card! I found this video tutorial at Dawn’s Stamping Studio and thought I would give it a go! So easy to make and as you will see I didn’t stop at one! (LOTS of photos in this post!)

My Mum, sister and I are busy making items for a craft market stall we will be having at the Burdekin Craft Spectacular which is held in my sister’s home town of Ayr in North Queensland. We will all be flying up there in about 3 weeks! Can’t wait! I am soooo busy making heaps of cards (and other crafty things like these note holders) to sell! There is something satisfying about making and selling home made craft items (and no doubt I’ll be buying a few as well!!)

Anyway, the first two holders I am entering into PDCC #90 as I used the challenge colours.

The butterfly is coloured in with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

Don’t you just love those cute little pens I found?

I painted these flowers with distress inks after embossing the image.

This butterfly is coloured with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

These butterflies are coloured in with prismacolor and then blended with a blending pencil. Love the colours against the kraft!

More prismacolor and gamsol.

Some left over hearts from my last card.

A lion that has been waiting to be placed on a project for months – from Recollections Zoolicious stamp set. Coloured in with prismacolors and gamsol.
