Monday Inspiration: Tablets and Notebook Gift Ideas

I'm really enjoying altering all of the tablets and notebooks. Amazed too at how easy it is to do. You will find more details HERE how how to do this. Here's what I made this weekend. I'm hoping it will inspire you to make one too.

These are small tablets that I purchased. They would easily fit into a purse or backpack. The Owl in the birdcage was made with our new Stamp Set called Aviary, item #116956 - Wood OR #120462 - Clear Mount.

The scallop layers were created using 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Extra-Large paper punch, item #118874 AND 1 3/4" Scallop Circle paper punch, item #119854. I accented it with our new Jewels ... Basic Rhinestones, item 119246 which has 150 pieces in the package (50 each of 3 different sizes).

SNEAK PEEK Alert ... the blue borders on the Bird Cage tablet were done using the BigZ XL Die called Tasteful Trim, item #120893. It has 4 designs for trim/borders PLUS the "negative" of the cut-outs makes great designs too. In fact, the blue border above is using the negative of the zig zag border. Nothing is wasted on this cut-out/paper use.

NOTE: SNEAK PEEK items are not available for purchase until September 1st, 2010.

More fun with the Tasteful Trim die for the Big Shot that I mentioned above and accented with our rhinestone jewels.

Isn't the crayon box and covered tiny bond notebook perfect for a child! I found the box of 4 crayons at our local party store over by the treat bag items. There were all kinds of things to fill a party treat bag with. I adhered the crayon box to the cover using Sticky Strip, item #104294. Sticky Strip is the perfect adhesive for this as you need something extremely strong because of the weight of the crayons.

This is a customized gift that I made for a dear friend. This paper is part of the Designer Series Paper called Travel Journal, item #117156. It will only be available thru the end of the month as it is in our Summer Mini Catalog.

The small cruise ship was stamped and cut out, then glued to the cover. The image is from Sentimental Journey, item #118513 - Wood OR item #120075 - Clear Mount. It is a great coordinating item for the Travel Journal Paper mentioned above. It also is only available thru the end of the month. To view the complete stamp set, click HERE.

If you want either the paper or the stamp set, you need to order now. Don't wait till the last minute and miss out.

Initials were stamped using Lovely Letters Alphabet stamp set (double mounted), item #115030 - wood only.
