Looks Like Spring Notebooks

Each of these notebooks was created with the Looks Like Spring stamp set.

The blue and yellow note pad used a clear emboss resist technique. First, I stamped blue flowers on the white card stock. Then, using white embossing power I embossed several flowers. I finished by sponging blue ink on the entire piece of card stock and then wiped off the excess ink. 

Post It Note Holders

I used the Simply Circles stamp set to decorate these sticky note holders. I found the sticky notes at Target. 

Floral Gift Card Holder

This gift card holder was created using the Pick a Petal stamp set, bamboo skewers. The vase was decorated with rub-ons, which adhere nicely to many surfaces.  


I made this clipboard using the set Crayon Kids and modge podge. This is the back of the clipboard.
