Convention DVD Notepad Case

I made these DVD Notepad cases for my downline, upline and roommates at the Stampin' Up! Convention this year!!!  I used the AWESOME Cheerful Treat Designer Paper that is a hostess only special in the new catalog!  LOVE these patterns and colors of Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette and Lucky Limeade!


On the front, I used the new Pennant Parade Stamp Set and Petite Pennant Punch with their name spelled out with the Sweet Shoppe Lower Alphabet set.  I added a couple Melon Mambo small Boho Blossoms flowers with Old Olive Mini brads in the center and hung them on White Bakers Twine.  I covered the line between the two patterns with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch in Pink Pirouette.



Inside the DVD case is a notepad for them to use at Convention (I forgot to photograph the matching notepad inside!)  I also included a Bag Tag using the same DSP and their initial so they could tie it on their new Convention Bag!



For this Bag Tag, I used the larger Scallop Circle on the Scallop Circle #2 Die with two of the matching patterns of Cheerful Treat DSP and glued to a layer of chipboard in between for sturdiness.  I punched the top with the Crop A Dile and added the Melon Mambo Scallop Dots Ribbon (another share that I have available in my RIBBON SHARES HERE!)  I used the Serif Essentials Alphabet Die for the letters in Melon Mambo cardstock and jazzed them with Rhinestone Jewels.  And I added the DSP flower from Blossom Party Die to their initial with a Pear Pizzazz Glimmer Brad in the center.

Convention was SO much fun!  I love seeing online friends I've met thru the 9 years that I've been a demonstrator.  This actually was my 10th convention…I've NEVER missed one!  WOOHOO!!!

Hi Connie,
Thanks so much for keeping us informed about SU and about the convention. Hope it was cool there where you were.  We're having 100+ temps here this week.  We're about to melt!!!!!  UGH!
I enjoy everything.  Maybe sometimie I will become a demonstrator– I have been thinking about it but I am 74 years of age and hesitate taking on so much   plus I am new here in this town and do not know hardly anyone.
Thanks again, I appreciate all your cards and all your marvelous work.

Hi, Connie! What fun I've had visiting you again today! Great ideas you have and thanks for sharing!!
I have a question about the notepads you put in the DVD case….how do you cut them to fit? Is there a special size you buy?
Thanks for any information!
Keep up the great creations!
