Just Us Girls Challenge 24 ..... Flap Card

Pam is hosting a challenge this week to create a flap card. I chose to make a notepad cover so I could have something in my purse when I want to make a list. I'm big on lists so this comes in very handy. I'm in love with these new papers that I got at our local scrapbook store. Looks like spring to me! I used my Justrite stamps to create my name and that was all the stamping that I did. I purchased my little notepads from Papertrey and I made my own cover for my notepad. I placed one of my Mom's crocheted flowers to the bottom. I just love this and can't wait to use it. A little velcro circle keeps it shut right under my name. Here's a close up of my flower....don't ask me why it is flipped....google is doing something funny to me!

Thought I would show you how I made my flap....it's pretty high tech! I took my scoretape and traced around the outer edge and cut it out! Pretty inventive huh?~!


Here's a close up of my name.....again I don't know why it is flipped!


Hope all of you have a great weekend. Be sure to stop by the JUGS site and check out all the girls creations. Stephanie is our guest designer for this month so please stop by and see what she has created for you this week too. The JUGS girl's links are on my sidebar too. Thanks for stopping by!

Ooooh Alicia - this is SUPER. What a great way to use the flap technique for this lovely and adorable list maker. I'm a list girl also although I tend to use my iphone nowadays but these would make fantastic gifts - for all your DT sisters? *LOL*
