So let's get on with the hop!
I absolutely loved the look of the Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper when I saw it in the new catalogue and couldn't wait to order it when we had our pre-order last month! So when we decided to do a blog hop for the new catalogue, I instantly knew what I was going to make - stationery! I made three samples for today and here is the first one:

This is a little notepad holder made from cardstock with a small notepad inside decorated with a strip of matching dsp. Quick and easy - I liked it so much that I made a few more from retired dsp for my upcoming launch. The notepad holder measures 8cm x 21 cm, you can alter the size easily to suit any notepads you have.

The second sample is a cute little holder filled with notecards and matching envelopes, decorated with Gingham Garden dsp and the matching washi tape. Check out the bow - I made it by sticking daffodil delight washi tape to whisper white organza ribbon and tying it into a bow! I love the new washi tape - I am definitely a convert to the washi tape craze!
The holder measures 11.5 x 3.5 x 9cm and the notecards measure 14.8 x 10.5cm, perfect size to send through the post!

This last sample is one of our clear mount cases, decorated and filled with a full-size notepad and matching SU! Logo pen.There is even a little pocket for bits and pieces on the other side. I made 3 of these (differently decorated) for my roomies and I for Convention recently, they are really handy! The clear mount covers come in a set of 4 for $9.95, and I picked up the notepads in a pack of 5 from my local grocery store for about $5, so these would make really cute, inexpensive gifts!

So here is my little set all together - what did you think? I love the bright colours of this DSP, I am not usually a yellow person, but it was just so cheery I couldn't help myself! I would love your feedback, so please leave some comment love below!
