Pink Cat Studio Sneak Peek Day 1 - Enchanted Lily and Hanging 4x4" Post-It Note Holder Tutorial

Hello Friends!! Whoohoo! It's Day 1 of sneak peeks of the new Pink Cat Studio "Enchanted Lily" stamp set!! Yay! Let's all do the happy dance. . .why? Well. . .because Lily is a fairy with pretty wings and looking absolutely adorable!! Today Lily on the swing is being featured. . .now, isn't she the cutest or what? I see you nodding your head in approval! LOL! The stamps will be released on February 23rd . . .we'll be doing 3 days of sneak peeks so be sure to stop by tomorrow to see another sneak peek of this AWESOME stamp set.

I decided to create this "Hanging Post-it Note Clip Board" and I even provided a tutorial. I actually first created the tutorial way back in October for my Stampin Up club but I decided to share it with you all!

It's actually a very easy project. . .you can either hang it or attach it to you refrigerator.

Just a little info on this project. I colored Lily with my Copic Markers and added a bit of SU Crystal Effects to the leaves and to her wings.

Be sure to stop by Pink Cat Studio online store as well as their blog. PCS also has a group site on Paper Craft Planet and there's an awesome challenge hosted by Heather going on right now!! Be sure to stop by and join in the fun!!
