Featured Designer for Just Some Lines

I am so excited to be the feature designer this week for Just Some Lines. I have created a couple of things for you this week.
The first card I created uses Gab-Window Gaze. I think she is so cute with all her curls. I used a black base and then a mat of partially black and white designer paper and partially solid yellow cardstock. I like the color combination as it has a crisp and clean look and that is what Gab is doing--cleanibg. The embellishment is a flower which has a yellow punch flower that I clipped and curled the petals and a bought flower on top. For the flower center I used a clear stone. The sentiment is by Stampin' Up
Here is my second creation--a tag. I did a few things different on this tag. The background is made of two pieces of material. The image is also Just Some Lines. The two girls are colored with Copic markers. The clouds are two pieces of foam. The thread at the bottom is adhesive thread. Down the side I put a sentiment which I made on the computer.

I have a little tutorial for today. It is for a Post-It Note Cover. The directions are so simple that there is really no need to film it. Just follower step by step.

Post-It Note Cover

1. Cut a piece of cardstock to 3.5 inches x 7.5 inches.

2. Score on the long side at 3.5 inches.

3. Turn cardstock around 90 degrees and scor again at 3.5 inches.

4. This will leave you a band in the middle of 1/2 inch.

5. Take a bone folder and crease the two folds so they are crisp. NOTE: do not put post-it pad into the cover until you have finish step 6.

6. Decorate as desired. If you use lace or a trim that wraps around the cover like I did, you will want to cut 2 pieces of designer paper or cardstock to cover where the trim begins and ends. Cut these into two 3.5 inches squares.

Glue these pieces on the front and back (inside).

7. Insert your 3 inch square post-it note inside and glue. Make sure you have the glued side of the pad facing the spine of the cover you just made. Your cover may either open from the bottom or from the side like mine.

Here is my little finished Post-It Note Cover. So much fun! Quick and easy!
