This week for The Cutting Cafe we were asked to play with the wonderful file called Jot It Down. This set is really wonderful and has a TON of things on it, so much so that pretty much any paper crafter would get a lot of use of the this set, not just a little. And that's got to be the best set out there...one you could use over and over...
So...my anniversary is coming up and so I thought to make something a little different then just a card. So using the "lined paper" from the set, I made my own notebook. The cover is done with some different kraft card stocks. Embossed with a flourish in clear powder and then the flower stamped in white and hand cut and layered.
The brad is by K&Company and the stickers on the belly band are Mrs Grossmans.
Here's a photo from a few years ago, really love this of us...
The "remember" is from the set as well, cut in half.
I need to example myself that the embellishments inside are all flat because I wanted it to close..but I just look at this and think something needs popped! LOL! At least I added some glitter to the heart...LOL!
There are some pages in between where I can write to my hubby...and this last page I used a tiny paper bag, folded and stuck in these cute pieces from the set...there's also a spot in the top for another teeny tiny little note.
I thought this was a fun project to make and something just a little different then just giving a card...I think I will make these more often. I love writing in cards so I could use the extra room! =0)
I leave in a few days for a scrapbooking retreat so I want to apologize for probably not getting around to many blogs this week! Though I am sure you all understand! And can I tell you...I'm a SAHM with 3 little kids and I don't even get 2 hours a week to myself...so...this is REALLY a needed break! LOL!
