Two for Tuesday

Back in the day when there was 98 Rock, I looked forward to Two for Tuesdays. Because if I liked the group, I knew there would be two good songs to listen to and I would turn up the volume. If I didn't like the group, I knew I could turn the channel and leave it there for awhile.Guess I'm showing my age again! Well, hopefully, you won't turn the channel on my two projects!LOL!

Today, I used Doodlebug's Nifty Notions collection for my two projects. I always like sewing themes even though I don't sew very much anymore.

The first project is an easel card.These cards are really simple, now I know why everybody loves making them! My formula for figuring out the size of the cardstock is I decide how big the feature card "cover" is then I double the height to get the base easel part. This card, when folded closed is 6 1/2" wide and 6" tall. So, my easel base is 6 1/2" x 12".

I'm using two of the punch out embellishments here. I'm not sure who I will give this to, so I didn't write anything on the bottom part yet.

My second project is a post-it note holder.I wrote a project sheet  for this in case you haven't made one before.

My twist on it today is that I added a lining on the inside, which makes it even sturdier. I cut the lining 1/2" smaller all around. I had to score it 1/4" less for each line. After scoring and folding, I matched up the cuts on the seam. Then, I just double-stick taped it all together. Used another punch out to embellish the cover.

The great thing about using the same paper for two projects , is you really start to use up your scraps, while they are still fresh and new.

Speaking of new...I'm still thinking about a new computer so I just want to remind you that you still have until 12 noon tomorrow to leave a comment on Friday's post about what kind of computer you have and what crafty tings you do on it.
