Notelet and Pen Set

Hi , Christine here again for this month's blog post. Ive created a "Thank you" Notelet pad and pen set which can be hung on a wall or board and used over and over again as inside the cover is a tear-off post-it note.

To make this project:  Using a  piece of Mount Board 11cm x 22cm embossed the whole board with Pearlescent Gold Pearl powder. Stamp the "Flowers" Stamp over the top and emboss with Earth Tone Paprika powders.  Punch two holes in the top for the ribbon.

For the Post it note holder:  Draw round a post-it note pad onto gold cardstock - double the length and a further 4cm . Dry emboss 2 lines 0.25 from the centre - this will form the top spine when your post-it note is inside. Emboss with the "Flower" background stamp but this time in Primary Lagoon Blue. When folded, stick the post-it note to the inside back section of the holder making sure the top is level with spine. Once the post-it note is enclosed you should have a 2cm overlap at the bottom. Punch a hole in both sections and add ribbon to keep the notelet closed.

For the pen holder. - Roll up a pen inside a piece of paper and stick down to form a tube. Take the pen out and cut at a slant top and bottom. Draw swirls onto the tube with the WoW Embossing Pen and add Primary Lagoon powders. Stick the tube to the project with strong PVA glue and pop the pen back in. It should fit nice and snug.

For the Sentiment: .  Stick a Thank you outline sticker to cardstock and emboss the whole thing with Lagoon powder.  Peel off the sentiment and draw inside the letters with the WoW Embossing Pen - add Paprika powders and emboss again.

Stick all the pieces onto the base, add the pen into the tube, the ribbons onto the top and post-it holder and decorate with small punched flowers embossed with Lagoon powders to finish. 

Items used in this project:  Stamps - Flowers
                                         Powders - Primary Lagoon, Pearlescent Gold Pearl, Earth Tones, Paprika
Wow Embossing Pen



  1. This is GORGEOUS. I guess it shouldn't surprise me that something so luxuriously coated with embossing powders should look so luxurious!

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.

For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.

The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.

I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!

Here are brief instructions on how to make it:


Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…


But we did it…..
