Teachers Pet Note Set

I've always been meaning to make a password book since I have a hard time remembering them.  This month's MFT's Guest Designer Challenge gave me the perfect excuse and motivation to get moving on it.

I decided to start with my card and use the goodies I received in my November VIP kit.  I started out by stamping my images from the new Teacher's Pet Who's That Girl set that will be released on November 3rd on MFT's White Perfect Panels in memento tuxedo black in then colored with prismacolor markers.
Once my layering was done for the card, I sanded down the silver brads I was adding in order to match the Crate Paper from the kit.  For a final touch, a scrap of Stampin Up! chocolate chip grossgrain ribbon is stapled to the panels. 

Using MFT's Jumbo Ric Rack Die-Namic to make an embellie stamped in Stampin Up! pumpkin pie dye ink.  I then added a paper clip charm held between two country Prima flowers from my stash by a silver brad that was sanded down again.

For my notepad, I printed out some Stephanie Fizer school digital papers to cover a 99cent notepad I got from the dollar store.  After adding some scrap Crate Paper, and stamping NOTES with MFT's Wendy Alphabet with memento tuxedo black then stippled Tim Holtz old paper ink over it.
I finished it off by dusting off my Stampin Up! hardware kit and using the paper anchors to hold down my scrap chocolate chip grossgrain ribbon.

For my password book, I pulled out a mini composition book from Target and covered it with the Crate Paper from my VIP kit.  Taking the new banner die-namic to be released on November 3rd, I ran it through my Big Shot using Stampin Up! pumpkin pie paper, and then again with ruby red.  For layering, I took the pumpkin pie strip and layered it onto the leftover piece of ruby red.  I then stamped PASSWORDS using the new Banner Day Alphabet and used an apple to separate them. 

Using scrap Crate Paper, I rolled it up and decorated a pen for the final piece of my set.
