Butterfly Notes.

At Easter my daughter told me that she didn't want any chocolate, strange woman, so I altered a notebook and clipboard and made a post it note holder for her. I took the covers of the notebook and covered them with some pretty pink paper that was free with issue 3 of the Simply Homemade magazine. I went round the edges with vintage photo Distress ink. I used coffee Archival ink to stamp the background and the main butterfly image. I put some butterfly tissue tape on the cover and then matted some corrugated card and the image.
I was in a swap last year on KCUK and Chris the lady I swapped with made me a lovely post it note holder so I coppied how she made hers. I covered some mountboard with the paper then I stamped the main image onto card and cut them out individually and attatched them to the cover.
I painted the clipboard with some pink emulsion paint then stamped the background images with vintage photo Distress ink then I put a couple of strips of butterfly tissue tape on it. I attached a piece of stamped paper across the board. The main images were stamped with coffee Archival ink and then attached to the board. I also decorated the other side but didn't take a photo.
All the stamps that I used are of the Stampers Anonymous Papillon set.


  1. So beautiful, love the colours and the butterflies!

  2. I love this project Hazel - and I bet your daughter was thrilled with it. I felt the same as your daughter - not that I didn't want chocolate but my waist line certainly didn't need it!

  3. Lovely Hazel! They all look beautiful!

    This is beautiful Hazel, the shades of pink you have used, the Vintage DI, the images - everything! I just love it and if you ever want another daughter (I can pretend to be young) I am up for it - and I would even give up chocolate.
    Take care - Hugs, Neet x
