Make it Monday #220 - Die Cut Mini Notebooks

Hello friends.  This week over at the Make it Monday challenge is making die cut mini notebooks with Melissa Phillips.  I always get super excited when I see anything by Melissa, as she has a style all her own, and one I can only dream of ever coming up with on my own or even copying!  It's all in the details!  Lots and LOTS of details! But anyway, this was a fun little project to do, and in fact they were so much fun and easy, that I made two!  Take a look:






 
My first little pad used On the Farm stamp set and the scalloped die is from the Shakers & Sprinkles kit.  I used Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Pure Poppy, Scarlet Jewel, & Classic Kraft inks.  My 2nd little pad was made with left over flowers (Vintage Linens) from last weeks MIM challenge and my watermelon leaves. The "just a note" is from Think Big Favorites: #22.  My striped DSP is from the Harvest Gold Pattern Pack.  Quick, fun, and easy to do!  May have to make some more of these for stocking stuffers this year!! :0)
 
You can check out Melissa's video and darling mini notebooks over on Nichole's blog right HERE.
 
I'll leave you with one last photo of my granddaughter Addy who is 11 months old now.  Her folks lost power with the big storms this past weekend, so they spent the day with us on Monday and Addy needed a bath...I was only too happy to oblige!!
 
 
  Can't believe this little peanut is going to be a year old next month!  She's pulling herself up on everything and moves like greased lightning!  "Talks" all the time too...just like her momma! (That's my oldest daughter Caitlin in the photo)  Who knew being a grandma would be SO much fun?!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)

  5. I love a good rooster, Marcia...so stinkin' cute! What a precious little grand baby! My own little Addy will be five this winter and I can't believe how quickly it all goes by.

  7. 1 year already? She is so precious with that sweet smile. I know you will adore every minute with her!
    Both mini books are beauties. Completely agree with Marybeth, the rooster is a must do! Thought of these as stocking stuffers for the grandkids too. Just don't think I can wait that long!

  9. I can't believe Addy will be a year already! She's a sweetie pie for sure!
    Your note pads are super cute as well! I'm loving them both but the rooster one speaks to my country loving heart, especially with that homespun background paper! Still crossing my fingers I can get to this challenge soon.

  11. Addi is such a little cutie-patootie! And so are your notebooks! Love your idea to use On the Farm for one set--very original! (I really should make a couple of these cute notepads for my granddaughters...)

  13. Marcia, your notebooks are super sweet, of course, but Addy is the big scene stealer in this post. She's so cute! I love being a nana to 4 boys, and wouldn't change anything, but it would have been nice to have had one little girl :)
