A Quick Make...

...well it would've been if my bind-it-all had co-operated, but I got it going in the end and produced this pad and pen set.

The pad measures roughly 9cm x 9.5cm, the pages being just under 9cm x 9cm. The purple is misc cs, and the paper on the pad and pen is from the Dovecraft Retro Floral Prints 8x8 pack. I thought I would have multicoloured pages to add a bit of interest so I picked colours that matched the dp (blue, green, pink, orange and yellow).

The pen is made in the same way as these here with the exception that I heated the tape for about 40 seconds before adding the beads - apparently it helps the beads stick better, so I'll see if it works.

Notelet Set 2

This set is different to the first in that it opens out, instead of having a flap.
I made 6 A6 cards, and used the Chick-a-Doo range of Sei papers and some more Core'dinations card. The papers are double sided, so the cover consists of the front side of Chick-a-doo layered on slightly larger pieces of the reverse side IYSWIM. The front of the top three cards are Pee Wee's Kiwis from the same paper range, and the bottom three use the reverse side, so all six cards are made with one sheet of 12x12. The scallops are from the Core'dinations card, which I've drawn dots on using a Sakura glaze pen, and the pictures are 2" circles taken from a sheet of the paper I used for the covers.
I didn't plan to use these for the scallops but I put a message on them and when they were all put together I didn't like them and needed to cover them up!
The ribbon used to tie them up is American Crafts... I thought it was too dark, but the opinion so far is that it's a good contrast, so it's staying. Oh, and the box itself is another sheet of Core'dinations white cs.
