Cupcake Craft Challenge #124 - Something New

To go with the card below this post I thought I'd make a little birthday gift for my teacher friend Laura. I knew she uses post it notes a lot in class so I decided to make her a little post it and notebook set. I have just been given some lovely new My Mind's Eye papers by another very generous crafty friend which I have used on this project. I cut it to size and used Distress Ink - Brushed Corduroy around the edges. I used faux stitching to highlight the different papers. The notepad has a Prima flower, gems, pearls and ribbon from my stash. I also used my new Nellie Snellen branch punch for the leaves. I used my Design Runner to print Laura's name on a strip of card. The post it holder was decorated with Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, gems and ribbon and the same birthday sentiment as the card from LOTV. I just had to get the Diamond Stickles out to finish them off!
I'd like to enter this in the:
Cupcake Craft Challenge - #124 Something New
I've used my new papers, new punch and new stamp.
