jingle notepad

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with another fun project I recently made for a stamping event with friends.  The theme was “Jingle All The Way”.  Here I made a covered notepad with a magnetic closure using the super fun gal from Ai’s Reindeer Games Set (4351).  The sentiment is from the Jingle Set (4681).

Just about everyone could use a cute notepad for all those holiday lists, right?  I would be lost without them!

I used a reindeer embossing folder for part of the background.  I also added some sparkle to her belt with a glitter pen and some Crystal lacquer on her glasses but they didn’t photograph well.

Check out those jingle bell earrings!  I found some bell brads in my stash that were perfectly sized!  They really jingle!

The notepad is a Jr. Legal size pad which was cut in half vertically.  I had these cut quite a few years ago but you can ask for them to be cut at your local office supply store.  I never added a magnetic closure before, though, which was inspired by a special friend from Canada, Michele.  I love the magnetic closure!

NOTE- I started with a 6 1/2 x 8 1/8 inch piece of cardstock and scored the 6 1/2″ side @ 2 1/2, 2 3/4, 5 1/4, and 5 1/2.

The layers on the front are 2 3/8 x 8 and 2 1/4 x 7 7/8.

While I was typing this, Frank Sinatra was popping in my mind… “I love those J-I-N-G-L-E bells, OH!….”  Don’t you love Christmas music while crafting?

Sooo….if it’s stuck in my head, might as well be stuck in yours too!  lol.

  1. Diane, both you and your AI chickie are rockin’ this design:). Love your fun spirit and creativity. The colours and patterns are great; her make-up is done to a “t”, and the paper tabs add another lovely design touch along with cutting back the magnetic bond on those babies:)))!!! This is great!

  2. Yes! I have a Christmas playlist that I run off my ipad while crafting these days:)

  3. What a cute and fun idea! Love her jingle bell earrings! And I’ll be signing Frank all day LOL!

  4. Another genius idea! I love these notepads and she looks awesome on it, Diane!!! And yes!! I love to listen to Christmas music while creating!!! :)
