I shared this project at the February Stamping Night Out - and it was a huge hit! I wanted to make a case to keep a notepad in my purse out of the DVD cases we sell in the Amuse Studio Catalog. I love having a notepad - but hate how they get tore up in my purse!
I started out with a Labels 8 Nestibilities and cut the largest die with Sugar cardstock. I stamped my flowers with Memories Tuxedo black ink and colored it with Copic markers.

I then stamped my flowers onto regular paper and cut them out to make a set of masks for my flowers. Did you know that our Tombow Multi Glue makes AWESOME masks? You just apply some to your cut out mask pieces and let it air dry. It dries as a repositional bond! Then when you stick down your masks you can stamp away without slippage and remove them when you are done! LOVE!
Once I had my masks in place I stamped my background leaves. I used Sage ink and the Beautiful Botanicals stamp set. I sponged on some Sage and Sky ink with Sponge Daubers.
Next I attached the label to a piece of Buttercup Petite Dot Cardstock. I layered on a strip of sugar stamped with Sage ink and the Typeset Alphabet set. I slipped my cover into the DVD case then wrapped a piece of Lime Chevron ribbon around the spine and tied a knot.
Inside my box I put a pen and a trimmed down Mini Legal pad. I happen to have a big cutter that I can cut the pads with - but you can also have them trimmed at your local office supply store. I trimmed about a half inch from the bottom edge and the right edge also to allow room for my pen!
We have just a few days left of 30% off retiring list - shop now before it is all gone for good!
Even more exciting - is the release of the 2013 Amuse Studio Catalog and Idea book! I have seen it - and sneak peeks too - and it is awesome! (email me and I can get you hooked up with a sneak peek too!)
I am looking forward to more studio time this weekend - so hopefully I will have more to share soon!
