Sorry for the delay in posting, but I've been super busy getting things ready for my parents & brother/sister-in-law who are coming for Thanksgiving that I haven't had a moment to get on the computer...whew! Thanks so much for your wonderful comments on my last post from the recent Tour de Freaks.
For these items I am showing you today I used the Sunny Days Simply Scrappin' Kit! Using this kit for any project will surely brighten your recipients day! They only items that didn't come in the kit were the ribbons.
I love making these Jumbo Clothespins. It is soooo easy! YOU CAN CLICK HERE to find out how to make these & to see more samples than you probably care to see! In that post there is also the link to where I purchased these from & a discount code...I think it still works! What? There weren't enough clothespins, you need to see more??? Well, okay, CLICK HERE and HERE , I have a few more you might like!!
MINI COMPOSITION NOTEBOOKS & PENS
I was so excited to find these mini composition notebooks at a "Back To School" Clearance Sale a couple of months ago! I just knew that they would come in handy for a special project. If you've never made your own composition notebook mini or regular size, don't hesitate any longer. It's really not that difficult to do. My best tip is to use Stampin' Up!'s Sticky Strip along the outer edges of the notebook, so that even after it's been crammed in your purse or shoved into your desk it'll still look pretty nice because the edges are really STUCK! I also use some Stampin' Up! SNAIL adhesive in the center portion of the paper to keep it stuck in the middle. I typically SNAIL down the ribbon too, so that it doesn't slide around like it's doing in the notebook on the bottom left...oops! I like decorating my own pens using the Pentel RSVP pens, but since I had these cute Stampin' Up! Pens that coordinated beautifully, I opted to use them instead.
I'll be back soon to tell you more about the Animal Stories Backpack & Card Set!! Stay tuned...Erin
