It's Riley and Company Design Team Challenge Time!

The Riley and Company Design Team challenge
this time was a non card item.
I just had to make something green first!
It also had to be Clover Riley.  Love that stamp!

I am still playing with Cricut cartridges and what
better way to make a non card item. 

This little basket is actually off the new Cricut Easter
Special release cartridge.  Basket is cut at 8". 
The shamrock came from Designer
Calendars cartridge and is cut at 3 1/4"
and a white shadow the same size.

The handle has a 1 1/2" shamrock placed over where there
is actually a flower and the leaves to the flower were trimmed off.

I had another project I couldn't wait to make and just barely
got it done Monday evening.  Tanya this one is for you!   

These are classic Stamper's Ink classes.  We did these
a year or two ago way before we all met Riley and Sophie.

We never did actually team it up as a desk set though.
So here is an update to a popular classic....

The Sophie Desk Set

This a notepad with sticky notes and a note holder. 
The secret ingredients are a square coaster and a binder clip.
You can add a bull dog clip to the notepad holder to hang.
I just could not locate my stash of them Monday eve.  LOL!

This photo will show you the note holder back so you can
see how it works.

Design Tip - look for items beyond paper to make
projects.  These are actually file folders, pens and
binder clips from the dollar bins. 
Add some shapes cut from glossy black paper
with a Spellbinders Pendant die and some satin ribbon and
voila a classy desk set. 
The stamp is Cyber Riley and a personal
fave of mine. Sorry Riley! This set just had to be Sophie for
my desk so I added a hairbow.  LOL!

Please use the links on my page to check out what the
rest of the design team has in store and be sure and stop
by Riley's home.

Stayed tuned -  tomorrow I have one more St. Patrick's Day
Project to post!

Also be sure and check back next Weds at 9 PM
central time for a new Riley and Company release
and Blog hop.  It will truly be March Madness!
