Happy Monday everyone!

I've got a little share for you today. I made this fun birdhouse notepad from a couple of Kerri Bradfords digital cutting files. It's to hang on the fridge to take quick notes. 

Once I had my pieces cut, I went to town covering the birdhouse with strips of my FAVORITE Studio Calico papers. The Bird was cut out with white cardstock then colored with Distress inks (I started with Antique Line and finished with Frayed Burlap).

 

The finished notepad is 10" x 6.5".  The notes are 3.75" square and are made from printer paper secured with brads... I can pull each sheet off and refill when it runs out.  I hope you like it!

Thanks and Enjoy!!!
