So Grateful - Dr. Greene's Gift Collection - Part II

Good Morning Crafty Peeps!

The Challenge this week at 613 Avenue Create is:  Anything Goes / With
OPTIONAL TWIST:  Create a Post It Note Holder.  The design team members have created a variety of note holders to inspire those who plan to play the twist this week.

So Grateful - Gift Collection  Part II
(Notepad Holder, Key Chain Tag Mini, Tags, Book Marks)
I still have many pieces to complete.  I thought I would do the "fun" stuff first.
THE BASKET 
   My first attempt at creating my own designer sheet for a project. 
 I am so pleased with the outcome!  I had a ball designing this paper.
NOTE PAD HOLDER w/MINI CLIPBOARD

Thanks to hubby, who built a pad press for me a few years back, I was able to customize and pad my own paper.  The note tray holds two gummed pads.  The mini clipboard is functional and works great for little notes!  It also serves as a cover for the note tray.

KEY CHAIN TAG MINI ALBUM
My Shero
Dr. Tamara Greene, M. D. (Neurology)

This mini album started life as an empty Orbitz Chewing Gum Box.
The front of the tags read: smile, love, hope, etc., the backs of the tags are gold!
BOOKMARKS 
The bookmarks are covered with clear shelf liner to protect against stains.
AND GIFT TAGS
These are tags that the Doc can use for gifts to family and friends!  
Some are embossed and others are stamped.


I have created a box to hold this first group of items. Next, I will tackle the lap desk or the actual stationery sheets, which  are the most laborious, because the stenciling and embossing all have to be done the "old fashion" way....metal stencils, light boxes...you know.

  12. Hi, Chana! I love your blog!!!! I'm so glad you came to visit me and left me the link. I'll add you to my reader. I can't believe you live in Decatur...we lived in Stone Mountain for 16 years when our kids were young. Small world! I love this beautiful gift ensemble. Your custom made designer paper is so chic, and the basket you built is just darling. So many thoughtful components tucked into this lovely gift. I especially love your embossed notepad...it's gorgeous! So glad to have a new blog buddy!
