Piggie Note Pad


Hi, I am delighted to be a Guest Designer at She's A Sassy Lady today!!  This is Lori from Scrappin' My Stress Away.

My niece just celebrated her 6th birthday.  She LOVES piggies!!  My gift to her is a day with Aunt Lori where we get pedicures and paint pottery (unless she chooses something different).  But I can't come empty handed to her birthday party, so I made her a piggie notepad and matching card.


I found this pig from Disney Pixar Toy Story.  I put the shadow layer on my gypsy at 4.18 inches and cut some out of white cardstock.


I cut out the another piggie at 4.29 (with the layer) for the cover.


I made the card the same size as the notebook cover.  I just welded two piggie shadow layers together for the card base and cut out a second piggie face.


Here is the card.



I wasn't sure how to bind my notebook without punching through the piggie's ears, so I used my Bind It All on a scrap piece of paper.


I put the scrap paper at the top of the notepad and centered it.

Then I used my Crop A Dile to punch three holes in the cover, back and the pages.



I trimmed the wires down to fit the note pad.


The trick is to flip the back cover over the front and poke the wires in.  Then bind it in the Bind It All.

The back of the wires will be hidden in the back of the notepad.



I used pink stickles to add some sparkle.
I had to put a little ribbon on her too!!


Here are Sabryna's piggie cupcakes.

As always, I am honored to be on Sheila's blog!!  Thanks for joining me!
