Office Accoutrement

Happy Thursday to you all. I know I have not been around for a couple days to post but I have thought about it- just didn't get the time. Trying to spend some time with the family - kids are on spring break right now. Next week- off they go to school.

I just love this set and I was trying to figure out why I would need to get it and just couldn't justify having it but............ I was overcome with the urge to splurge so I got it. And I am so glad that I did, not only can I alter items but it is great for cards too! Here I took a composition book and altered it and I am thinking of making a few of these and giving them to some friends (hm, I wonder who might get these!). The paper is K&Co and SU tempting turquoise and Celery (one of my all time favs!). I also used some hodgepodge and the round tab and spiral punch.

For the card, which is standard size, I used the same set but also Polka Dots and Petals (remember how much I love this set?) Oh- and I did send it on to Jen so she can enjoy it as much as I did! Anywho- I cut the flower out to make it stand out a bit. I was thrilled with the way this card turned out.

As I have told many of you I had some marathon crafting last week and these are some of the projects that I worked on. I have a few more things in mind but I have to clean up my area and spend some time with the family. But hope to work on some new projects this weekend and will post them when I can. Please feel free to leave comments.

I got my stamps Heidi, and as you know I have some organizing to do but I think I need to play a little first and these stamps - since their already mounted :) thanks - are going to be first.
I love the journal, specifically the file card with the ribbon, I'm thinking I could make one and instead of attaching the file card use it as a book mark and flip it back when needed. The polka dots set looks awesome on that card. Sooooo cool. I'm loving the inspiration I'm getting here.

I love this set and may just have to get it. I just couldn't figure out what to do with it. Now I know, thanks H!
