I've just finished revamping this over sized notepad. It's quite nice paper really and could be used for writing letters in an elegant hand with a beautiful fountain pen, but I don't have a fountain pen or elegant hand-writing so that rules me out!
I kind of imagined Simply Sassy 'Love a Latte' was sat outside a Paris cafe sipping her drink on a bright Autumn day, with leaves blowing around her feet whilst she watches the world go by. I've coloured her with Copics. The background is made with a Tim Holtz stamp using one of my favourite techniques, inking over with Distress Ink and then splattering with water. I've used Antique Linen for the base colour and then gone over the top in Pumice Stone with a template made using a cloud punch.
The pad has been covered with DCWV cardstock. The rest of the embellishments are:
Papermania sticky ribbon.
An off-cut from a Cosmo Cricket sheet.
