It's AmberINK's INKredible 21-Day Challenge!

Yes, It's Challenge #5 -- Organize!

Did you know that once upon a time, people lived without sticky notes? (Note careful avoidance of trademarked names... :P) Thank goodness someone recognized this void in our lives! Sticky notes are a powerful organizing tool. Think of the dark days when fluttering, torn scraps of paper were all you could use to, say, mark articles in a magazine to read later! Or flag your favourite recipes to try in a new cookbook! Or denote paragraphs to cite in that important term paper you're writing! Not to mention all the to-do reminders that you can safely and securely stick anywhere you might need them.

Sticky notes don't have to be just plain, however. It takes only a few minutes to turn them into an elegant desk accessory.


Then, whenever need or inspiration strikes, your sticky notes are close at hand:


I made this sticky-note holder using the clear and easy directions at Splitcoast Stampers. On a base of SU Ruby Red cardstock, I layered white cardstock with three different AmberINK iPapers, SpinPin -- Holiday: Black Tie regular & tiny; and Schoolgirl Plaid -- Fire and Ash: Tiny. I could have used a regular golf pencil, but why when I could use a shiny, cow-splatted one! I didn't add ribbon to my holder; when you're brilliant but not patient *wink* you can't take the time to undo a ribbon to get at those sticky notes!
Check out AmberINK's INKredible 21-Day Challenge and join in on the fun... and get organized!

Supplies: white & SU ruby red cardstock, AmberINK iPapers: Spin Pin -- Holiday: Black Tie regular & tiny and Schoolgirl Plaid -- Fire and Ash: tiny, sticky notes, pencil Pin It Now!

Lindsey, this is just so cute! The reason why you didn't add ribbon just made me laugh. ;D

Fabby idea! I'm always moving stuff around on my desk trying to find my post its. If I had something this pretty, it would stay in one specific place and never be covered up!

Classiest sticky note holder I ever saw! The color combo is TDF! Terrifico.
(my word verification is Fatif - is that a msg to my forced New Year's resolution or what???)

So cute! I love the papers you chose--that red, black, and cream color combo is great!

First, love the post-it note holder (yeah, yeah, trademark shmademark). But more importantly....hahahahahahaha!!!! And you think you may just walk away from this little space when your month is done. You have a watermark now! There's not turning back. :P
