Desktop Notes Tidy - Video Tutorial with Petal Garden DSP by Stampin' Up

I know a few of you are looking forward to this project since I showed it to you during my craft room tour earlier this week. 

As I explain the video I wanted something on my desk which I could use to make notes from a telephone call, a bit like we used to have when I was growing up - back in the days when even the house phone wasn't mobile.

I chose to use paper from the Petal Garden DSP stack for decoration.

This paper has some really big and bold floral designs but it also has some lovely subtle patterns too.

It gives quite a different look to two otherwise identical projects. 

Which do you prefer?

This is really easy to put together - see for yourself in my video tutorial by clicking HERE.

As always, if you would like to buy any Stampin' Up products, you can shop on line 24/7 in my online shop HERE, or get in touch at and it would be my pleasure to help.
