That's Right - It's a Pig Post-It Note Holder!

Good morning!  Hope your week has gone well.  Today's project is something I made for a friend's daughter, Annabelle.  It's one of a couple of things I am making for her birthday.  Since this is a belated gift, I'm making her several things to make up for the fact that it's late!

A friend of mine, Kathi of Kards by Kathi, showed me these really cute easel cards she made that are actually post-it note holders.  Click here to go to her blog where you can check out her Hello Kitty post-it note holder.  

Check out my version of the Easel Card/Post-It Note Holder:

Isn't that little piglet too cute???  Annabelle just loves pigs and she loves the color Aqua Blue -- this is the closest I could come to that color :)  

The paper is actually called Footloose from Close to My Heart.  I cut the base of the holder using Lagoon cardstock at 4 1/4" x 11".  I then scored it at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2".  I took some Creme Brulee cardstock and cut it at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" and edged it with Cocoa ink.  The next matte is a sheet that comes from the Footloose paper and was cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and also edged with Cocoa ink.  Finally, the matte directly beneath Miss Piggy is a scalloped rectangle I cut using our exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  The image is found on page 54, D4, < Rctngle2 > cut at 3 1/2" x 5" (using Fit to Length).

For the darling little piggy, I used my second most favorite Cricut cartridge - Create-A-Critter.  You can find her on page 28, A5, < Pig > cut at 3 1/2".  I used Hollyhock, Baby Pink, and Black cardstock to cut her out.

Supplies Used:
Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge (Z1686)
Footloose Paper (X7151B)
Lagoon Cardstock (X5762)
Creme Brulee Cardstock (X5754)
Cocoa Ink Stamp Pad (Z2114)

I hope Annabelle will like this.  Thanks so much for stopping by - love reading your comments!
