National Memo Day

Celebrate Again on May 21st, 2012

Got something to say? Put it in a memo. It will make your message seem important and official. Besides, saying, 'Looks like someone didn't get the memo' just has a better ring to it than, 'Looks like someone didn't get the scrap of paper I taped to the copier.'
(from the Hallmark channel)

My Minds Eye, Follow Your Heart, Be Happy Designer Paper
Stampin' Up Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon
3.5 X 5 in plastic frame
Sticky notes

The paper was double sided, so I used the other side to decorate the inside of the pen.
I turned the picture frame upside down, then laid it down and then put the sticky note on and the ribbon on top.

The line-up for May includes:

Jearise:   GO HERE NEXT!

  1. Super cute projects! Love the paper and the ribbon in the first one. Did you make the note pad magnetic?

    1. no, it's just sticky notes. I chose the colors on the papers so I could change the colors of the sticky notes. I wish the light would have picked up the green striped paper in the pen.

    2. Thanks for the likes :) your package went postal today.

  2. Very nice job. LOVE the pattern paper and that ribbon goes great with it.

  3. Excellent projects!!! I love the bike card and the use of ribbon. I really need a training on how to tie bows and incorporate them into my cards. I love ribbon, but I just am horrible at bows! You did an excellent job. So pretty. The memo holder and pen set is a fabulous idea. I wish I would have thought of for Secretary's day! Maybe I can make some for office Christmas presents. thanks for sharing and so fun being part of a cool and talented line up! :)

  4. Love your projects the card is super Love that paper and grat color combo! Adorable note pad!!Nice hopping with you.
