I have had this Sara binder for probably 2 years (don't you think Angie?) And I have all the fun address section, envelopes, pockets, and there they have sat. Well I pulled that sucker out and thought I would use some SU paper on it. That stuff is so nice to work with, especially the thicker double sided paper. Just gotta love it like velvet! So, this is what I came up with, I stuck to a neutral color, oh I know not everyone loves PINK like me. I really wanted to make it PINK though, you know that! But I didn't, and here are some pic of the inside.Now I just need to decide what I will do with it. I am wondering if I might try and sell it at the craft show but now sure how to price it and/or if anyone would want to purchase something like this. Oh but who knows it might be something that someone will purchase for themselves, but I think that you have to really like it to purchase it.

So, then since I am also in a mini notebook swap, I started on those this week as I figured they would be easy and fun and I was sooooooooooo right! I worked until after midnight one night on these. I am thrilled with the way they came out. I am making 3 Bella ones and then I am making a Halloween one for the hostess. Hope you enjoy!
Okay, that is all for tonight, it is getting late and I am trying to get to bed at a more suitable time for rising with the boys once they are back in school. I can just see it the first week- okay, now you boys get yourselves up, dressed, eat breakfast and pack your lunch- I will see you when you get home! Probably would not be the "mother of the year" best practices, you think? Oh well, I can't proclaim that prize anyways- they had soup for dinner tonight! I shall not carry on anymore- tata!

Then I have to show you this card, I got it from Jessica'smom on SCS and she made it at a stamp a stack (I can't recall whose b/c my kids stole my paper that had her name on it). I love the pink and orange, probably because they are not colors I would typically use together but this is just a beauty! Don't you think? When I asked if I could post it here (with credits) she was happily agreeable so I thought, I should do this more often. So- if you send me a card that you made (include credits) I will post them over the next two week on here! Now, that might not mean you are published but we can show off some of your work!
I am working on some fun Christmas tags that I will show you next time ! In the meantime, take care!

Tata for now!

This card I used chocolate chip and real rust on it. I got my In the Spotlight hostess set and this is so sweet. Of course, the scallop punch which I am unfortunately going to have to have replaced because it only punches through thin paper and not the real cardstock (boo hoo!). I really like to make these spiritual cards and now I just need to start sending them out!
This little card is made with Fun and Fast notes and it is on celery and brilliant blue cardstock. I wanted to use the scallop punch but the images are a bit too big for it. That made me sad but the set is so very versatile that it makes it worth it. I used the slit punch to tie the ribbon through and I of course always love using my punches.
Speaking of punches- I will try and use my corner frame punch this week and get some photos uploaded. We are going to be doing some camping so I will have to see what time I have. I look forward to giving it a try.
I think that is it for today-

Last night I was up, couldn't sleep and this was the card I kept picturing in my mind. I was going to come down to the stamp room and make it but just couldn't believe that I could stay up that late. So tonight I stamped it and it looks just like I pictured in my head. Not sure if it needs something else, maybe a little ribbon but I used pomegranite and I don't have any ribbon in that color and I think that is the only color I could use. I used a little foam to make the ladybug pop. Just a sweet little card to tell someone thanks (sentiment is from simply said)
Hope you enjoyed these! I know I said I was going to do a product review but I just couldn't let these guys wait a few more days as I will be doing some traveling. I will do the review later this week.
Have a good one!

As for the other wild side, I worked like a wild woman last night making 10 of these little note pad covers. I have a team meeting this week and wanted to give each of my staff a little something so they will all get one of these and then an embellished paperclip as well. I thought that the design and the overall look came out great and I hope they like them! Just flip them open and start doodling.............
So that is it for now................ next I will post a new product I got and tell you what I think of it.
