I love having post it notes or little pads of paper in my bag for jotting things down while I am out and about. My previous post it not holder has been floating around in my purse/diaper bag for over a year and was looking pretty sad so I decided it was time to update.
The design is based off of some notepads that I picked up in the dollar bins at the “M” craft store ages ago. I think that the cute little gel pens came from the Dollar Bins at the “T” store also a long time ago.
The stamped image is actually stamped on Whisper White cardstock but it was just too white looking so after I colored the flowers and leaves I made a “wash” with Soft Suede to give it more of an aged and softer look to it. I just used my aquapainter and squished the lid of the ink pad to pick up ink. By doing this it also softened the other colored images. I know there are several versions of these floating around out there in blog land but if you want me to post the directions just let me know and I will figure out a tutorial.
