The Stamp Review Crew Flower Patch



Welcome to Escape2stamp! Today I'm playing along with my friends at The Stamp Review Crew where we are sharing some crafty ideas using our Stampin' Up! set Flower Patch. Whether you've landed on my page as a subscriber or have arrived from Jill Coleman's site - Welcome! I hope you find an idea or two that tickles your fancy.


My project today is an altered note pad. Who says a functional item can't be nice to look at, too? ;)

Once opened, it looks like this:


I included an envelope on the front flap as a convenient place to stash odds and ends. The sample has a business card in it, but I was thinking it would be a convenient place to stash receipts while I'm out and about. What do you think?

Products used today: 


Stamps: Flower Patch, Remember This & That Rotary Stamp
Project Colors: Hello Honey, Pear Pizazz, Soft Sky, Pool Party, Basic Gray, Whisper White
Tools: Big Shot, Flower Fair Framelits, Scallop Edge Border Punch,
Embellishments: Jewel Basic Pearls, 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon (Hello Honey)
Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper
Fast Fuse Adhesive (this stuff is awesome!)

    1. Thank you, Yapha! I thought of you making this notebook; I figured you probably have a list (or 10) going at any time. Books to read, others to research, projects, etc. :)

    1. Now that you mentioned shopping, a little booklet like this (with the envelope) would be a great way to keep track of those coupons and grocery lists! Thanks for the comment and additional idea!

    1. Thank YOU Tanya! I'm so glad you liked the book. (As I mentioned in a previous comment, writing the notes in the book was the best way to keep track of them. Ha!)
      Thank you for allowing me the privilege of working on the board. It was great to get to meet others from the group in person and, of course, I got to work with Paula and meet one of her boys. :)

    1. Hi, Betty. Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I'm glad you like the notebook. I agree with you that it would make a fun class project. I just recommend that you mark the stamps and coordinating framelits somehow to make it easier to use them together. There are a few Youtube videos out there sharing ideas if you need help. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Mike! Thanks for the kudos on my little notebook. I have given it to a friend who makes a LOT of lists and is constantly being handed business cards. Hopefully this will give her a safe place to keep them until she gets back to her office :)
