Learn to pause....notepad holder

***Please scroll down for my TGF Miss Anya Snippet Post!!***

Hi Everyone! Happy Friday! I have to say, this week has been amazing. I'm busy in the background getting ready for  homeschooling, coloring when I get the chance, starting up a new business venture and developing new friendships. Seriously, it's been a blessed week!
I just LOVE this sketch at Cosmo Cricket and this note pad holder has been lying in pieces on my desk and it finally  hit me how I want to put it together. I scrapped the original pieces I had cut for it (believe it or not, it was another Cosmo Cricket collection) but when I saw the chipboard pieces I had from Circa 1934 I knew exactly what I wanted to do!

Here is a close up of the cover. I love how it turned out. I make lots of lists lately to keep myself on track with everything that is going on and I wanted something pretty to keep my lists in, so this was created with no one else in mind by me!! I used Helmar Acid Free glue to adhere the paper and the notepad inside. I love it b/c it made the cover that much sturdier. Then for the chipboard I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry b/c even tho it is already self adhesive, I know with the wear and tear I am going to put this thru, I didn't want anything coming off randomly in my purse. I stamped the sentiment which says "Learn to pause....or nothing worthwhile will catch up to you." I love that b/c even tho I'm busy checking off things on my list, I want to also take moments to pause and listen to the whisperings of my heart. :D 

Here is a picture of one of my favorite Helmar products Liquid Scrap Dots!! I used it to adhere the ink bottle chipboard b/c it was layered on top of the other chipboard piece it needed some dimension but I didn't want to stack zap dots so this was an easy solution. 

Thanks for stopping by!
