Beautiful Ideas with Nature Sketchbook

  Post-it Notepad, Nature Sketchbook, Tutorial Maggi Harding, Graphic 45  (05)

We are loving the projects being created with Nature Sketchbook, our new gorgeous collection. Today, Maggi Harding and Clare Charvill share two perfect ideas with this new collection. Take a look at Maggi's gorgeous folios:

"I've got a quick and easy project for you today that I know will delight the recipient!  Its a Post-it notepad wrapped in a folio made from Graphic 45's new collection, Nature Sketchbook.  These make cute little stock stuffers or little gifts.  How about using them as place markers on your table?  You could easily use journaling type cut-aparts on the fronts and write in your guest's name." ~Maggi

Tip: I'm big on assembly line production so if you're going to make a lot of these, cut everything to size all at once.  Then ink your papers.  Now line the pieces up in the order of assembly and you can quickly put these together.

Tip: Do you have a sheet or two left from various collections but not really enough to do a big project?  Well then this is perfect use for those leftovers.  You can cut two folios from a 12 x 12 paper, now find some coordinating images and you're all set.  Of course, I do know that using all our Graphic 45 paper is really not the goal.  Do you kinda break out in a cold sweat when you discover than one of your treasured collections is all gone?  Yeah , so do I!

Natures Sketch Book Planner 5 Clare Charvill Graphic 45

"Nature Sketchbook was the perfect collection to choose for my hostess gift.  The feature image on the signature sheet was just the perfect size for my project too, and those butterflies just had to be cut out ☺  This planner holds all you need to organise your way through the weeks ahead.

The cover is made from double thickness 2mm chipboard and measures .  I altered the front cover in two sheets of 12 x 12, used one on the back cover and two sheets from the 12 x 12 Patterns and Solids to create the pocket sections that hold the post its, jotter and ‘things to so’ lists.  I picked all of these up from a local stationery shop.  A neat magnetic closure adds the final touch to this elegant and practical gift." ~Clare
