Gingham Gala Post it Pad

Hi everyone,

Today I am taking part in the Team Scrimpy Blog Hop and the tutorial below is my entry. 

It's a cute little post it pad using my current favourite Gingham Gala DSP, I just love it. It's so versatile, it goes with lots of stamp sets as well as the Butterfly Gala which is part of the same suite.  This time I have teamed it with Daisy Delight and punched out the flower to stick to the front.


1.  1 piece of coloured cardstock (I used Granny Apple Green) 7 3/8" x 3 1/8", scored on long side          at 3 1/8", 3 1/2" and 3 7/8". Scrap of whisper white for the daisy.
2.   1 piece of Designer Series Paper (I used Gingham Gala) 2 7/8" x 2 7/8".
3.   Daisy Delight stamp set
4.   Daisy Punch
5.   Multi purpose adhesive
6.   Ink to match DSP and Memento Black for the sentiment.
7.   Dimensional (optional)
8.   Post it pad to fit (I used one from the Range 4 for £1)
9.   Sentiment
10.  Small pen to fit (the one I used is from Wilkinsons and comes in packs of 5 for £1.50)


Cut cardstock to size and make the three scorelines, then fold and burnish.

Fold on the first scoreline and make two small cuts from the fold to the scoreline to make the tab for the pen to slide into.

Make the first fold lie flat against the back piece of card to make a book shape and glue either side of the pen tab. Make the pen tab fold outwards in the opposite direction.

Glue the back of the post it pad to the inside of the card.

Glue the chosen DSP to the front of the card.

Stamp out a daisy in the matching ink and punch it out. Stamp your sentiment directly onto the DSP at the bottom in the centre ( I used one from the Soft Sayings Card Kit) and then stick the daisy above it with a dimensional (or glue it flat, whichever you prefer).  Insert the pen and its done. A cute little pad to keep in your bag, on your desk or by the phone. 

Here are four others that I made in different colours.

Give it a try, its easy.

Happy stamping
