Batch of Firsts

One of the projects we are making in class today is a post it note holder. Nothing earth-shattering about that, but I wanted to make them a bit more chic than usual, so I went with classic colour combo black, cream and red and used a bunch of products for the first time.

First time using Love Letter DSP - so in vogue right now!
First time using the scallop trim corner punch - thanks to a lesson from a friend. Thanks Rob!
First time making little roses with the scallop circle punch - thanks to the lovely Andrea Buckland's tutorial (see here).

My ladies can decorate theirs differently if they want to, but I am very happy with the overall look of mine. Inside are the post it note pad and a little gel pen.

Thanks for calling in today. Enjoy the last day of the school holidays!
