Take note, Use it up : Blooms & Bliss

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Blooms & Bliss Notepad for you.


Today’s project came about because of my wish to use up my full sheet of 12 x 12 DSP, after using about two thirds of it on yesterdays gift bag I was left with 2 strips to use up, the widest being 4″. The first thing that came to mind when looking at the long slim pieces was a long notepad, and because both sides of the DSP are equally gorgeous this style works really well.


Firstly I cut a piece 3″ x 9″, I then cut this piece at 5″ so that I had the two pieces I needed. I put the largest pattern at the bottom using the 5″ piece and then using the other side glued the smaller piece to it overlapping to make the length 1/8″ less than my notepad. I added the knotted ribbon to cover the join. This was then added to my notepad base of Island Indigo.

For instructions of how to measure for any notepad base please click  –  HERE  This will take you to a previous project which contains these instructions.


For the sentiment:

Die cut or punch 2 circles: Whisper White, 1 3/4″ – Island Indigo, 1 7/8″.

Stamping: Blooms & Wishes stamp set, Island Indigo, Sahara Sand and Mint Macaron ink. Distress edges with Island Indigo.

Adhere your sentiment to your Island Indigo circle, then using dimensionals add to your notepad as shown.


Tomorrow I have a matching Card to show you all, using most of the paper that’s left. So that will be 3 full projects from my one piece of DSP, and they could all be given together as a gift for someone. Oh I do love getting the most from my papers 🙂

Happy Crafting
