Shabby Chic Note Pads

Laura Kant (Laura's Creative Moments) from the Netherlands designed these Shabby Chic Note Pad Toppers back in 2012.  For a long time I have wanted to make some for my granddaughter to use at home and work, so this weekend was the time since her birthday is next week.

The Stampin' Up stamp set "Kindness Matters" along with the Designer Frames embossing folder and the Top Note die are all retired, but these lovely designs can still be copied and made with other tools and stamp sets.

Don't forget to protect your watercolor work with a Matte Finish permanent protective spray, especially if it is to be handled a lot.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, happy crafting.
