Still Working on Daughter Wordbook

I am still working on the wordbook.  I try to do a little bit here and there as I can.  I was so excited to get it put together today with my bind it all…  then my worst fear arghhhh!!! I messed up the first page and ended up putting the holes in crooked.  I even did test cuts on some extra pieces so I could figure out where I wanted the holes to be.  The only thing that I can think of was that it got caught on the shadowed D and did not get down all the way, like I SWEAR that it was.  I thought about it for awhile and decided to just let it be what it is.  I think I covered it up pretty well with the ribbon and bow.

I love working with glitter but it is messy and a pain.  I learned a trick to run the letters through the Xyron machine backwards and then put the glitter on.  It works!  The glitter stays put and does not come off on your fingers and go everywhere.  I tried the flower-soft on the the scalloped circle and I am not sure I like it but I think that it looks okay.

I can’t believe that it has been almost 2 years, time sure does fly by quick.  I am just glad that I have a ton of pictures to look back through.

Post It Note Pad

Today I had a little bit of free time so I worked on project that I have been wanting to try.

It is a chipboard post it note pad. I used some pretty patterned paper, ribbon, Bind It All, 3M memo pad and chipboard. The heart is from the Hello Kitty Greetings Cartridge.

I wanted the chipboard to be sturdy so I glued two pieces of it together and then adhered the pattern paper to both sides.  Next, I attatched the 3M pad and sanded the sides to make them look nice and binded it with the Bind It All.  I tied my new pink grosgrain ribbon on the front and cut the heart from the Hello Kitty Greeting cartridge.    The heart was attatched with foam mounting.
