Ready for School with Quick Quotes~

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page and a couple of note pads, that would be perfect for teachers. Catalina Island was perfect for these projects.  First up is the scrapbook page~

This layout was created using scraps from other projects, a little of this and that.  Layering of papers, die-cutting Ivy, stickers and chipboard were all used in creating this page.  Look real close and stamping was involved also.

Continuing on with the scrap bits and pieces of paper, two note pads were created~

These are created using the legal size note pads from the Office Supply Store.  Most places will cut them in thirds for you, if you buy the 12 pack of note pads, for no charge.
1. Have note pads cut in thirds.
2. Mat the back of the pad with pattern paper , leaving an 1/8" edge .
3. The top flap is a 3"x3" paper square.
4. Wrap it around the top and secure in the back using adhesive.
5. Secure the front with adhesive.
6. Embellish!!!!
