30 Days of Lists - My Album

I love LISTS....I do a few everyday for many a things. I have tried all kind of apps for them, but some how end up just handwriting them. So, when I saw this class online for 30 days of Lists, I had to sign up. So, basically, you get a prompt everyday via email and then you create a list for that prompt. I felt like this will be a true documentation of who I am - at least at this stage of my life.

There is still time to sign up as the prompts do not start until September 1st.

So, I had to create a mini journal of sorts for me to write these lists in. I created this journal using some Project Life Patterned Paper (Had bought a few packs when Becky Higgins had them on half off sale). Love those papers, they are so thick as well. I inked the edges and then bound them using my CINCH binding machine. This is the first time I am using the Cinch after having it for 2 years. GASP!! I know. Oh well. Better Late than never. It is not perfect, but I am loving my first attempt at binding. It was quite easy and the issues were only with user errors.

Without further Ado, here is my album cover,

I used the doily, a tag and some stamps on the tag as well. I also used some tiny texts stickers from Cosmo Cricket on teh front page - I could not resist using these as the book is all about lists. Here is how the album looks from Top View,

Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully, I will share some of my lists in future as well.

CFC67 - Penguin Birthday

I wanted to share this quick simple (one layer..not much LOL) card that I made for the Casual Friday's Challenge #67 - Banners and Flags.

I used this stamp set from PTI - Winter Penguin for the penguins and the banner they are holding that says Happy is from PTI Tag-its #10 stamp set. I also used some Queen and Co Washi tape on the card. Loved how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by,

SFYTT - August 2012 - Kind Words

Hello Friends, Happy Sunday. It has been a while since I posted on my blog. I was just not having the Enthusiasm to take pictures and blog. But I am back and hopefully for a while :))

I wanted to share this card that I did for August SFYTT challenge hosted by Jen Del Muro. The sketch was nice, you could keep it simple or jazz it up.

I used the Verve Kind Words stamp set for this card and used one of the sentiments (i just love this sentiment) from that stamp set.

I am also entering this card for the ICR Challenge #20 - To use embossing on your project and to have a sentiment that has three different fonts in it. My white panel in the card is dry embossed with the textiles embossing folder.

Thanks for stopping by.
