Arianna Memo Pad Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Here we are again…the very last Heartfelt Creations Wednesday in June!  Where is this year going, and why is it in such a hurry?  I don’t know about you, but the time has been going so fast, that I have been having trouble keeping up and I’ve had a few important things fall through the cracks.  So I decided to make a little book to help me keep track of my to do list.  I’ll share it here with you today in my Arianna memo pad tutorial.  You’ll find a complete list of materials and detailed instructions at the end of this post.

HC Arianna Blooms Memo book 02aI tell you, friends, creating with the Arianna Blooms Collection is pure joy!  I added lots of pretty gingham ribbons and crochet lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon to finish this memo pad.  I also decorated the inside.

I also stamped on the individual pages so that I would be inspired to make my lists! This is the pretty Arianna Vines PreCut Stamp.

Thanks for stopping in.  Be sure to pop by the Heartfelt Creations BLOG where you’ll find dozens of inspiring projects from the rest of the team.  Or, you can click on the DT links in my sidebar.  I hope you have a day that makes you happy right down to the tips of your crafty little fingers!
