Legal Pads into Note Pads Dec 2015

Hey Crafters!!  Last minute stocking stuffers for all of my favorite peeps made from Legal Note Pads!  I love to make these and personalize them for the recipients.


My dad has a tractor just like this!  A cottage cutz tractor die cut in red and gray card stock and pieced back together the tires were colored with a Bic markit black marker and glossy accents added to parts of the tractor and the wheels. 

My brother has a stash and glasses! LOL. This one didn’t turn out too great but I always do a hunting or tool thing for him and I wanted to do something different this year!  A little bit of white acrylic paint was smeared over the mustache to reveal the words on this momenta die set.  “respect the stash” The glasses are from a stampabilities clear stamp set. 


My nephew goes to a college that has changed its mascot?  What!  It kind of blew my mind and mojo.  They’ve been Indians as long as I’ve known.  We have a little Indian blood, if we sat around crying offended minority we wouldn’t have anything.  Just sayin’. Recollections varsity Alpha stamp set and spellbinders font one A. The wolf stamp is from Stampin’ Up! nature silhouettes. 


My mom loves the beach!  And she always has a visor.  This art impressions lady is perfect and I colored her with copics exactly the way she is on the stamp set.  The Beachball is from a little one dollar stamp set by studio G or Inkadinkado.  Just keep swimming…just keep swimming….


My niece loves a little dog named Alice!  Alice is a very cute long haired dog that is black and white. I should have used colored pencil instead of trying to limp along with my black Bic mark it, but just didn’t think of it sooner. Cottage cutz dog on chair die. 

The local print shop cuts these legal pads down for me.  

I cut card stock to 2 7/8th inches x 8 1/2 inches.  This note below is wrong. LOL


Scored (Landscape) @ 3 1/2 inches and 3 3/4 inches to cover the top of the notepads. Glossy Accent glued them down. It’s acid free so it won’t discolor the CS. 

This One is my favorite!  My daughter in law works at urgent care and I had to use these little Lawn Fawn birds!  and that sweet WPlus9 owl from winter pals!  I improvised a thermometer from a spoon handle.

A close up I elevated some of the diecuts on fun foam and added glossy accents to the thermometer the bird beaks and the heart on the medicine bottle. Lawn Fawn get well soon and winter sparrows stamp sets. 


The cooking one for my daughter with lawn Fawn’s baked with love set.

My husband’s deer hunting scene with the buck from Taylored Expressions birch tree accessories die set and doe from cottage cutz dear die the birch trees and birds from impression obsession birch tree die set colored with copics. 

  And lastly one for me I never make one for myself!!!   

Sadly I failed to photograph my son in law’s note pads, one with a deer scene and one with a party crowd scene because he plays drums and guitar in a band. Maybe I can get him to snap a pic of them and I will come back and edit the post.  Because this project was inspired by Cody he requested the notepads because he’s the only person who actually uses them!!!

Edited to add Cody’s!
