GKD Release Party Challenges

Last week's Gina K. Designs release party challenges were indeed challenging. I wasn't one of the lucky random winners of a free set this time, but I made some great things!

I did have a question about how I made the post-it-note holder. I'll try and find time for a tutorial on that. Wish me luck!

I altered a spiral notebook and made a matching post-it-note holder and R.S.V.P. pen. Almost all of the ribbons came from my scrap box. You can see photos in the post below.
