More Altered DVD Cases

It's been quite a while since I posted...did you miss me? I'm sure nobody noticed but the spammers...seems I get an abundance of spam messages when I don't post regularly...not sure why that is??? I've been busy working outside since we've had such beautiful weather here, so not as much time to stamp.

Anyways...I have some more of the altered Stampin' Up! Clear Stamp DVD Cases to share with you. These make such a nice little gift for someone...perfect for end of the year teacher's gifts, or maybe a stampin' friend to keep track of their wish list in the upcoming new catalog, etc... Everyone I've given them to so far have really liked them. It's been fun for me to make them because I used some of my favorite retired DSP.


The case on the left uses LeJardin papers and the one on the right, Spice Cake. Here's a look at the inside.

I couldn't find pads of paper the right size to fit inside, so I bought 5x8 pads at Staples and had them cut down to 4 1/2 x 7 so that they would fit inside the case along with the pen. (Note: next time I'll be sure to emphasize that it is the RIGHT side I want cut & NOT the margin side.) The pens are Pentel RSVP pens and I inserted a rolled piece of DSP into the barrel so it coordinates with the set. The pocket is perfect to hold receipts, coupons, etc. Here's a couple more...

The case on the right uses Thoroughly Modern DSP and the one on the right, Sweet Pea. Here's a peek at the inside...
For all four cases I also used: Adorning Accents Edgelits Die, Labels Collection Framelits, Designer Frame Embossing Folder, Letter It Alphabet - embossed with White Embossing Powder & coordinating Seam Binding Ribbon.

I thought you might like to see a family that has taken up residence at our house this Spring.
A Robin built this nest on the top of a grapevine wreath I have hanging on the side of our garage. I've tried not to bother them, but I have been checking on them each day and I think there are 4-5 of them in there. They sure keep their parents busy...they are constantly flying in and out of the nest feeding them. Guess who else is extremely interested in this nest...
That's our barn cat Stinker...I sure hope he doesn't get them! Once those babies get bigger and really fill up that nest I'm also worried they'll fall right out...look at how the nest is attached to the top/side of the wreath...I sure hope mama knew what she was doing when she chose this spot.
Have a beautiful day!

These are great! Who did you get to cut down the note pads? Did Staples do it?

Hi Chris, Yes, Staples cut the pads for me.

TFS, Lynn! Is the inside pocket added with Sticky Strip or is it part of the original template, folded up, and the other side cut out? Hope you get what I mean. These are great - thanks for the measurements on the pads, too.

Hi Sue, Yes, I attached the pocket using Sticky strip...so far mine is holding up well.

I love these! They are so easy to make and have made a few but not with the inside pocket. Could you share the dimensions for the inside pocket? That is such a nice finishing touch.

Your Stinker is so cute! I do hope he misses out on the day the baby birds learn to fly. :)

Can you tell me where you got the DVD cases from? Stampin' up? They sell those? I can only find them in LARGE quantities and I need like 4 of them. Thanks in advance! :)
