Woodware Design Team Challenge - Rollagraph

We're having a blog hop!!!
Welcome to the
Woodware and Clearsnap
Spring Gifts Blog Hop!!!
Whether you're getting ready for Mother's Day (US), graduation season, or just because, these gifts ideas can be made with a few Clearsnap inks, Rollagraph Stamp Wheels, and Woodware Craft Collection Clear Stamps. All week long we'll be sharing inspiring gift ideas on our blogs here:
Clearsnap Blog: 

It's all about Rollagraphs this week and creating a gift. So I have decorated the cover of a tall notepad that I bought in Tesco. In fact I bought a few as I liked the shape - tall and long. Asda also sell little notepads but they are shorter.

I have used my Rollagraph design over every thing I have added to the cover. I started by making a sheet of background paper using some of the very smooth stamping paper that Woodware distribute for 'Craftwork Cards'. I did some masking and sponging to bring out the design. I have used 'Chippies' to spell out the word 'notes' and rolled over them with the Rollagraph. I have added strips of black torn card which is all 'Rollagraphed' as well as the ribbon!!.... see what I mean. The black on black is very subtle.
Once the ink was dry on the 'Chippies' I sponged the letters. I really like the way that the letters are just visible and almost blend in to the background.
For the ink I used a ColorBox Wicked Black pad. I simply rolled my Rollagraph over the pad several times for good ever coverage like you would with a brayer. Very easy to use and versatile! [as you can see lol].

Head on over to the Clear Snap Blog to see what they've created today!! And don't forget to follow Clearsnap  on twitter and Facebook and you will find Woodware on Twitter and Facebook too.

Happy Hopping!


  1. I love the text background, and the stamped chippie letters. Very cool! These little covered notepads would make great gifts.

  2. This is such a cool idea. I love to create notepads for gifts, this is a good one for a young man maybe?? The chippie letters/no's get onto everything don't they. I have used them quite a lot on bunting and for "age" cards - soo useful!
