Blog hop order:
Robin (you are here)
I took my daughter back to college this week so I made these fun Fall notebooks for my daughter and each of her roommates, this is the "Fall" semester for them. The notebooks can be used for grocery list, notes to friends or perhaps a little gratitude/thankful list.
I used two of Kimberly's new stamp sets, the Stampin' Around Fall and the Happy Thanksgiving, as well as the new Tiny Doily Metal Dies. All these stamp sets and dies are available for purchase today at My Craft Spot woo-hoo!
The three crinkle ribbon colors that I used are Pumpkin Spice, Carmel and Acorn available at My Craft Shop. I taped them down to my patterned paper then used my sewing machine to sew a zig-zag stitch over each ribbon.
The leaves were cut using Everyday Paper Dolls cricut cartridge pg. 35, I crinkled them up a bit then sponged them using Tim Holtz Antique Photo ink.
I added a button tied with Vintage Chocolate bakers twine on top of the bow, available at My Craft Spot
Below are two of the stamped sayings from the Happy Thanksgiving stamp set.

I bought a pack 8 /12" x 11" notepads from an office store and took it to my local copy store and had them cut the pads in the three long equal sizes, it was very inexpensive.

  54. Wow! Your notepads are fabulous! Fall is my favorite time of year and Halloween is my favorite holiday, so choosing just one of these stamp sets is so hard. I guess I would have to lean toward Spooky Treats because the lettering is so elegant.
