Amazing Paper Grace Adorned Note Pads

Amazing Paper Grace Adorned Note Pads with Simple Stories Simple Vintage Botanicals

Hello, Friends!  I’m back today with another Amazing Paper Grace Guest Designer project.  Today, I’m featuring the Vintage Treasures Adorned Note Pads Dies.  So often we need a quick, affordable, yet beautiful gift.  These dies are just the ticket!


There’s a lot to love about the Adorned Note Pads  dies.  Measuring just 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ this little beauty is the perfect size to tuck into a purse or travel bag.  The notebook base die has a sweet little scalloped edge and creases all the fold lines for you when you run it through your machine.  Yu also get a trio of little flower dies, which I used to adorn the cover.  A smaller frame die cuts a perfectly sized mat layer.  So Becca really thought of everything when she designed this lovely die.

A 3″ sticky note pad fits perfectly inside .  And look a the cute little pen/pencil holder!  That die comes with the set, too.  This is such a handy little notebook to have on hand when you are running into the grocery store for “just 3 things” but then you get inside and can’t remember what you came in for and you end up buying the entire store.  So I guess it’s a money saver, too!  Becca has a tutorial on her blog showing you how she put this notebook together so you can check that out to see how it works.

Amazing Paper Grace Adorned Notepads: Another Thought

As I made the first notebook, a thought popped into my head for another way to use this fun die.  Why not turn it into a tea bag caddy?  So I did!  As you can see in the above photo, I simply flipped the die on its head, adding the scallop at the top.  Then I created a simple ribbon belly band added flowers and had the cutest little gift!

I used the pen/pencil holder die to create this little shaped pocket.  Then I tied one of my cherished vintage Italian Demitasse spoons to a pretty tea bag, added a honey stick and tucked it inside.  How fun is that?

This would make such a sweet little thinking of you or get well gift.  And it would also be stunning used in a place setting for ladies’ luncheon.  I can see lots of wonderful ways to use the Vintage Treasures Adorned Notebook, can’t you?

This is my final APG Guest Designer post.  What an honor!  I’ve had the best time working with these gorgeous dies, and I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

    You make me smile Kathy. Love your ornamentation incorporated in a practical item. For me, you have opened my thought process to incorporate more color and patterns into my designs. Hope Becca invites you back soon. Thank you Becca for having Kathy as a guest! Will continue following both of you not only for my enjoyment but also with the hope of my growth.
