grey gift set

Whoa! Loads of pictures alert!! So I hosted our Battalion's monthly coffee yesterday, and I made a little gift set for a prize to one of our games. I'd newly bought the bookmark dies and notepads from PTI, but haven't get to use them yet- until now! LOVE them!!

So let's start with the colors... over on EIC this week, they're shopping at LaPomme- simply gorgeous stuff! Love the vintagey feel :) Lots of her photos have neutral monochromatic tones with a pop of yellow... {here} {here} {here}... and well, now HERE in my gift set! I went with the greys for my monochromatic base and a pop of yellow. And ya wanna know why I went with grey as my base color... because Moxie Fab is hosting "Gray is the New Black Challenge in the Moxie Fab World!"
The first part of the set is the bookmark. The DP is from a set of papers from Walmart that I've had for ages. Lovin my PTI stamps :D Inked up the edges, added some of my favorite ribbon-the lush black satin- and some gems and done!

Next up is the notepad- again more PTI stamps and the sentiment is from Unity! Love me my Unity stamps too :) Threw in a bit of embroidery floss, thin satin ribbon, and the SU! notebook edge punch.

I didn't want the closure to be too busy, so I ended up threading ribbon behind the DP, knotting the end around a button, and it loops together quite nicely!

I cut the inside flap across the corner and traced one of my circle spellbinders to get the curved edge {since a corner punch wouldn't work here, but I wanted it rounded!}. The inside sentiment here is Unity- love it!

And I picked up this candle holder at Michael's for $1, added a few embellies, and I'd gotten the candle as a gift, but it's not one of my favorite scents, so I re-gifted it!
