A Little Parker's Patterns

Hello!  How is your Thursday going?  I am looking forward to a fun class tonight...don't worry, I will post pictures next week!  Today, I want to share a little Parker's Patterns with you! 

Monday I mentioned that I had a special downline event where we did lots of fun stamping.  When I was planning make & takes for the event, I wanted them each to feature a product suite from the Spring Catalog.  Today I'm going to show you the make & take that featured the Parker's Patterns product suite.  I love this suite.  There are some great textures and patterns in this suite that lend themselves wonderfully to more masculine projects.


You can see some of the Designer Paper, the fantastic Natural Trim Ribbon (which looks like it's rough and thick, but in real life, it's soft and ties beautifully!) as well as the super awesome Silver Buttons.  Seriously, check out the centers of the buttons.  They are textured!  And, these buttons have some serious shine to them...love them!!!!  You will also see some embossing (both heat and with the big shot) and some stamping.  That sentiment is one of my favorites...you can find it in the Pursuit of Happiness set.

So, do you want to know what it is?  It's a notepad cover!  Here are some more views for you...

Inside...I love the little flap pocket!  And, you'll see an extra score line by the far left edge...that was an oops when I was making my sample, so ignore that, yours won't have one!

Back

We used a Jr. Legal Pad as our notepad (these can be found at your local office supply store...often singly or in packs of 10 or 12).  One of the reasons why I love using these notepads is that I can cover the top of them where all the papers are bound together (look for the strip of DSP in the middle picture).

Now, I know I'm going to get comments and emails asking for the pattern or measurements.  So, I'm happy to supply you with a little something to help you create these for yourself.......


Happy creating and have an inspired day!
