If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Michelle at My Creations with Michelle. If you came from Nancy Klein then you are in the right place! 

I'm in the little homemade everything cutesy mood lately, you should see my new apron my mom sewed me, it is just perfect and lots of owls..of course. This is a handy little 3x3" post it note matchbook. After I researched a few different types and came up with my own measurements..I just googled it. I used Copic markers some of mine and the others I borrowed from one of my downlines. As you can see I added some sparkles and ribbon to cover up the staples. I will soon have these sets and more on my Etsy store. The actual match book was cut from kraft card stock cut 2x and then I glued them (good ol Bonding Memories) together to make the book fairly strong, I scored after it was dry (like 10 mins after i glued it). The rest is pretty easy to figure out. I used a few different stamp sets to make some but this Jeanette Archived Stamp sets are the best and my this the first one and so far my favorite. Im off to buy more of them...since they are only available for a short while (maybe only for this idea book).

This is the inside of this pretty cool matchbook, I choose to coordinated the color of the post it note to match the vibrant yellow background.

If you would like to have the measurements please feel free to contact me! 
I'm at the end but feel free to click on Michelle's in case you did not start at the start. 
If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog, My creations with Michelle as she has the complete blog list. 

All these picture were from my new Cannon Rebel T3i and a light box, they turned out great and i am still learning how to not use the auto.

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. Join us again in November when we will be featuring the Holiday Gift Guide.  We hope you will join us again on November 15th.

What a great idea, making this into a notepad worthy to sit on anyone's desk. I loved how you matched the colour of the post it notes to the colours used in the shirt. So cute!
