Inspired Stamps Notepad Cover

I love this scripture and wanted to feature it front and center on the band of this project.  We were asked by Inspired Stamps to create a project other than a card this week and I jumped at the chance to create this notepad cover for a gift.  The clear-polymer stamp is from the Strength stamp set. 

 Here is the outside of the notepad holder.  These are so easy to make and really make a lovely gift.  (I found the instructions by Heidi Swapp on My Craft Channel). On the inside of the notepad holder, I used stamps from the gorgeous Blooms Stamp Set.

 Everyone owes it to themselves to have this versatile stamp set in their collection.  You will use it over and over for so many projects!  Just look at the detail of these flowers and frilly butterfly.  So sweet!
And here's the other side and more of the stamps from the same set.  I just love it!!  You could glue the notepad down if you wanted but I just cut a double slit in the center of the holder, covered the back of the pad and slid the pad in the slits.
Did you enjoy my project as much as I did?  I hope you'll make some today after stopping by the Inspired Stamps store.  And, as always, check out the blogs of all my fellow team members!
