I finally found a little time for some shtampin'. Whew! I feel much better now. Paper therapy....I didn't come up with that....someone else did....but my memory escapes me. Anywho, this is what I made. I started out with this little notebook (no not the one in the mini....the other one, in the big catalog). I liked this one because it had more pages and I wanted a journal to write down the funny things that my kids say and do....so here you have....my "kids say the darndest things" notebook. I covered it in one of my favorite DS papers, Notations, then used the accompanying stamp set Office Accoutrement to stamp the flower and the little notation in the corner after printing out my saying on So Saffron Cardstock. The saying along the bottom is a piece cut out of the Notations paper (I LOVE THIS PAPER!!! It is so versatile!). Anywho....then I used a piece of darling polka dot ribbon from my new best friend Jody and it matched perfectly....thanks Jody! Along the corner I used another ribbon from Jody and put a coordinating brad in the middle of it. I mounted the whole thing on the reverse side of the DS paper and also lined the inside covers (front and back) with the same paper so it would coordinate. I used the spiral punch to make it fit in between the spirals and the round tab punch (which I have dubbed the diaper punch for obvious reasons) to make tabs for each of the kids names and then printed their names out on the computer on So Saffron and stuck them in the middle of the tab. Ireally like the way it came out and I have already started journaling away. Just in the nick of time eh?
And the Bella addiction continues. It seems that all I really want to do is stamp with my Bella's. I don't think this is good. I already want to order more. If you want your own Bella's or want to read about the Bella's or become a Bellaholic....go here. Here is my version of cosmobella which Kari and I have renamed martinibella and prezzibella. One is a birthday card for a good friend who will rename nameless in case she is reading this otherwise she won't be surprised. Hee hee. I can't believe I actually got it done early and will be mailing it. It might even get there on time.....miracles never cease. =) Also, Bella's got a Fella....and he is a cutie. Go check it out. Happy Sunday and Happy Stamping.
