PTI Goodness

I made this project quite some time ago when I saw Nichole's tutorial for making this pad/pen holder, just haven't shared it yet. I do love making notepads and journals!
I wanted to make a baby ensemble using their new pastel patterned papers, that paper pad is just gorgeous! I am a sucker for pastels, love, love, love them! The notepad and pencil holder took me a while to figure out though, LOL. I just wasn't getting it for some reason.
I wanted to make a matching card for the notepad, this way I could give a card and a little something extra as a gift. And what new mother doesn't need a handy shopping list for the seemingly endless necessities for new babies! I colored one of Mo's digital images, the adorable chubby baby with a few Copic markers. I wanted to add some stitching around the edge of the card, so I used my piercing tool and plastic canvas as a guidline and pierced some holes all the way around. This way it was easy to get even, straight stitches with a needle and some embroidery floss.
That's it, clean, simple and adorable! I love how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by!
