Monthly Notes by Wendy Kessler

Monthly Notes by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: From the Notebook Stamp Set (July 2016 SOTM), Noted Stamp Set, Cardstock (Gypsy, White Daisy), and Inks (Gypsy, Pear, Cotton Candy).

With no AC for the past week and 80+ temps combined with 70-80% humidity, my creativity is a bit lacking.  I used the SOTM to create these simple little note cards.  I have mine held together with a clip but you could also hole-punch them and “bind” with ribbon or a jump-ring.  I am going to use my cards for my monthly scrapbooking goals.  They could be used for any to-do list or could also be used to keep track of birthdays.  After laying them out for my picture, another idea would be to put them all laid out on a large clipboard or whiteboard.  You could also put kid’s names on them instead of the month and use as a chore checklist.

Now “Hop” on over to Jean McNulty’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the From the Notebook Stamp Set is only available through the end of July!

This set is available on my website for only $5 with a $50 purchase.  Shop now!
