Hi everyone, Tara here! As much as I'm pretending that the summer can last forever, there's a small voice in the back of my head that says, "Fall is just around the corner!"
Fall means school and getting our family organized. I whipped up this fun tear-away to-do list using some of the wonderful stamps and Framelits that are a part of the Planner Pages collection. Whether it's for your desk or fridge - or perhaps it's a simple gift to give to your child's teacher to kick off the school year - this little notepad can help to get things done.

I was smitten with the little sayings and Framelits that come in this collection. My favorite phrases are the ones that tell me to get my act together: the Get it Done die set and Make Today Count die set.
I used an acrylic stamp block to mount the cling stamps and then pressed them into Ranger Archival Ink in black. I had fun testing out various phrases on colours of cardstock.
When I found a stamp that I was particularly taken with, I die-cut using a corresponding framelit shape. I love Sizzix's Adhesive Sheets and so I put it on the back of the cardstock prior to cutting it. This means that my cardstock was now transformed into stickers!
Using my Rectangles Bigz die, I cut out a big pile of standard white paper. These would make up my notepad.
I stamped out a title and little check-boxes onto each piece of paper.
After a while, I was on a roll!
Using a stapler, I secured the notepad to a piece of square cardstock.
Then I embellished with the stamps and framelits of my choice. Depending on who this list is for, you could personalize the decorations with all sorts of die cuts.
A few hot-glued magnets to the back of this cardstock could transform this list into a fridge magnet/tear-away note-pad.
I prefer my list on my desk. That way I can jot things down as I'm working (and cross things off as I get them done).
Where would you place your to-list so that you could "get it done"?
