SAB sneak peek - Good as Gold card & post-it

Sale-a-bration (SAB) is just 4 days away so today I'm sharing a sneak peek of an awesome SAB kit that you can choose FREE when you spend $90 during Sale-a-bration (28 Jan - 31 March).
The 'Good as Gold' kit includes everything you need to make 8 cards, including envelopes & liners - all with a trendy touch of gold. Here's the card, as designed by Stampin' Up! - can you see the shiny spots of gold?
The sentiments & flag end banners are all die cut, so you just pop them out. You'll actually receive 24 sentiment flags (8 each in English, French & German), which you can alter & use. The envelope liners are a fabulous gold foil (no pic), so I think I'll be re-purposing some of those in other projects too. I'll add a full pic of the kit contents to this post once Sale-a-bration is live on the 28th. See a pic of the full kit at the bottom of this post.

Then I thought..."What else can I make with the kit?" - a cute post-it note book! I was excited that a regular long post-it book fitted perfectly!
How to make post-it note book
1. Score the card  at 1cm & 10cm (in the same direction as the centre score already on the card).
    If you work in inches, try scoring at a 1/2 inch & 4-1/8 inches.
2. Fold & flatten each score line. Adhere post-it pad to base (76mm x 127mm / 3 x 5 inch post-it)
3. Wrap gold elastic cord (from kit) around the note book & tie in a bow at the front. Secure it on the top with some sticky strip (where tape/glue will be hidden by decoration).
4. Attach the sentiment banner, thin coloured banner & gold banner as shown using dimensionals or tombow glue (or however you like).
5. Give it to a stationery loving friend.
Here's a closer pic of my post-it book decoration.
You could really easily step up both the card & post it note, but I decided to keep it simple - we all need quick & cute projects! I hope you like this sneak peek & are as excited as me about Sale-a-bration & our new Occasions Catalogue.
I've posted out Catalogues to all my regular customers, so they'll be arriving very soon. If you'd like a free copy of each, plus my new newsletter, just contact me with your details.
Back soon with lots more to share.
Inky wishes, Di
