Gifts Sets for my Mom

My mom finally ordered some sets from me to make for her friends to give for Christmas. She gave me the amount of money she wanted to spend on each person so I had to figure out what to make. So, without further ado...


This gift set includes a set of 6 cards and envies, a scalloped bookmark inspired by BevR from SCS, notebook and matching pen. The notebook I altered was cut in half at OfficeMax. I had seen this idea in the SCS gallery and thought it was a great idea to decorate twice the number of notebooks. It costs $1 per cut at OfficeMax. I used Unity formal alphabet stamps for the monogram. I had never created a circle card before, but had the idea to make it a bookmark for the notebook I created. I normally attach a ribbon for a bookmark, but since I did not cover the spine, I decided to create a separate bookmark for it. I found these really cool looking notecard holders made by trishalim1 from SCS. I used this template for the card holder.

stamps: unity formal alphabet, papertrey corners and borders - circles paper: white, light teal, light purple, unknown dp ink: almost amethyst accessories: nesties, wide grossgrain teal ribbon, composition notebook, dimensionals, rsvp pen, purple polka dot ribbon from M's, mini flower eyelets to hold scalloped bookmark together
