Hip Hop {Thursday} 'Take Note' Notepad!

Welcome to another fun Thursday with Unity! You should be joining me from Heather B.'s blog! Isn't she amazing? If you didn't start at the Unity blog, you will want to head back there so that you don't miss any of the amazing design team inspiration and fun!

Today, Angela is releasing two sets today--Tickled Pink and Bouncy Blue. Yes, you guessed it, they are wonderful baby themed sets! Angela wanted us to share a baby photo so here is a picture of me with my mom from Easter 1966. Yes, I was 8 months old there! Isn't my mom beautiful? She still is just as beautiful inside and out! I am blessed! Love ya Mom!!
Now what "mom-to-be" doesn't need a notepad nearby? I always told people in my childbirth classes that "your brain cells shrink as your uterine cells stretch." So, in an effort for any mom-to-be or goodness ANY MOM to remember things, I created this fun matchbook style notepad. It measures 3 1/2"x4 3/4", and I fill it with junk paper. Why not use the back of the paper for notes and recycle a bit? It's super easy to make and so cute. I made my first one in 2007 but it was a bit larger. I like the smaller size to fit in my purse. I used the Unity April KOM (the butterflies and the scroll stamps) for my notepad. Once I cut the scrap paper, I use my Crop-a-Dile to punch holes through all of the paper and ribbon. The brads are larger brads, and you can add more paper as needed!

Thanks for stopping by today. Now you can head on over to Linsey's awesome blog to see what she has in store for you today! Enjoy the rest of your day everyone!

Oh my goodness, Patter, what a wonderful and lovely gift for anyone and I think I will be making something like this for someone I love too! You are so inspiring, I adore your pink/white/black color combo and fabulous cover design using the new KOM! Gorgeous as always, my sweet friend! And you and your Mom are both beauties!! Now I know where you got that sweet, beautiful face! :) hugs and happy hip hop!

Beautiful color combo, Patter. I made some of your larger pads a couple years ago. I'll have to make a few more in this smaller size. I like the idea of them being more "purse-sized." The brads are a good idea too.
