A Note-worthy Hip Hop!!


Welcome to my Blog!
I hope you are having a great time!!


You are on the Unity and Ippity DT Hip Hop and if you came to me from Karen Maldonado's blog then you are "right where you should be"!

If you want to start at the beginning just head over to the Unity Blog and then folllow all the Next Blog icons til you reach the end of the Hop at the Ippity Blog. I have a special tutorial there for you today, so stick it out til the end and leave some love along the way!!

If you visited my blog on Monday's Hippity Hop, then you saw my Notepad Holder HERE!  It was my sample for this week's Back to School Hippity Hop challenge for the week!

I decided to learn to make my own Notepad Holder and I have shared the tutorial on how to do it for you on the Ippity Blog.  I decorated this one up very femininely for my sweet neighbor and friend Lisa!  What do you think???


The finished size of this is 3.5 x 5.125 inches.  I used the Life is Good line of Echo Park paper that is the paper for the Ippity Summer collection.  


The Ippity stamp set used is from the Just Wanted to Say stamp set.  I first stamped the frame on The Echo Park flowered paper with our Burnt Umber Hybrid Ink. Then I stamped it again on Kraft and cut away the outer frame leaving only the inner portion.  Next I stamped the Just a Note sentiment!  I added the row of rhinestones to enhance the label!


For all the details on how to create this Notepad holder, please finish the Hop and end up at the Ippity blog for my picture tutorial.  It's a really fun and easy project to make!!  I hope you will give one a try too!!

To continue on the Hop, please head to Lisa Arana's blog for your next amazingly inspired project!!

Next Blog


Have a wonderful day!!
