Cute DVD Case Notepad Holder

I have been wanting to make another one of these adorable DVD case notepad holders and I finally was inspired the other night to do it. I'm very pleased with how it came out. And yes, Stampin' Up! does sell these cases - they are called Clear-Mount Stamp Cases and are found on pg. 192 of the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog (item #119104, set of 4 for $4.95).
I used the Sunny Garden DSP (pg. 174 IB&C) and the coordinating Cottage Garden stamp set (pg. 107 IB&C). I love the bright colors in this paper - Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, and Daffodil Delight. I also used the Defining Alphabet and Define Your Life stamp sets (pp. 160-161 IB&C) for the focal point. The whole thing makes me think of spring and sunshine! (Now if we could just GET some!)

I made the "pocket" on the left with a Small Open-End Envelope (pg. 171 IB&C). I folded it to the length I needed, sealed it, and covered it with DSP. Then I cut off the top (which was originally the side of the envelope) and punched out a bit of the front so it made it easier to get into the envelope.

I also added a ribbon loop at the top of the paper pad to hold my mini-pen in place. That way it doesn't fall out every time I open the case. Pretty smart, huh? Smiley from millan.net

Until next time...
