Happy Fathers Day!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend.
I'm really in the christmas mood at the moment, and i just couldn't resist this weeks Winter Wonderland challenge! So... i inked up my new Magnolia stamp.
I stamped it, cut it out and matted it with 3-D foam pads.

I found a great tutorial on Liza's blog on how to make this super cute liitle gift...
A Post-it note holder.

I have used, Basic Grey Sugared paper and cardstock stickers, and the rest is form stash.

The Inside:


It's really easy to make, so why don't you pop over to Liza's blog and have a go? :O)

Before i leave, i need some help....
I have no idea how to store my clear stamps, if any one has any ideas i would be truly grateful! :O)

Thanks for looking,

Fern xx

  2. Very pretty creations again Fern love the xmas one & the glossy accents, regarding the clear stamps I think I'm right in saying they need to be out of the sunlight & store them onto acetate sheets, put holes at the side & then you can keep them in a lever back type folder. Google... storing clear stamps... lots of info there.

  14. Hi Fern, Great card and Love the pretty colours on your post-it box :)
    Christine's idea is fab. I dont have many, but I am storing my clear stamps in an old shoe box on the bottom shelf... but I might just pick up a folder when I'm in town next :)

  16. Hi Fern,
    It's Georgia again! I just read that you wanted to know about storing clear stamps - yoyu could try using a filing folder and decorating it. Have a look at the one on my Mum's blog that she decorated to store stamped images. You can find her blog here.
    Hope this helps! :)
    Love, Georgia xx
