Build a Bouquet!!

Today I thought I'd share a project with you that I actually made at least a month ago!! I couldn't show it to you before because it was for my Mom and she didn't get it until Christmas!! And because she is one of my loyal readers, I knew she would see it if I posted it!!

I made this long shopping list type notepad using my Bind-It-All. I started out by cutting down some thinner chipboard that I had from one of my packages of SU designer paper. I made it the size I wanted and then covered it with Soft Sky dp. I cut some printer paper down to the right size and put it all together with my Bind-It-All. Then I worked on the cover. I stamped my image and some extra flowers on Papertrey's white cardstock. I used some VersaMagic Dew Drop Chalk inks that someone had given me called Sea Breeze and Pink Grapefruit and they just happen to match Soft Sky and Groovy Guava. The chalky type craft ink sticks better to the acrylic stamps, I find. The stamp set I used is a beautiful floral set by My Favorite Things, called Build a Bouquet! This was my first time using it and it was so fun and easy! I made the main panel and layered some of the extra stamped flowers on top of the first one and attached them with a glittery brad. I did the same beside the oval sentiment panel. For this I used the word 'create' and the tiny flowers from Boho Blossoms. I finished it off by tying coordinating stitched grosgrain ribbons on the spiral binding at the top! So easy but so cute and made especially for my Mom!! **Hi Mom!!**

There are some exciting things going on next week at My Favorite Things!! I have been playing around with the new January releases and I'm DYING to show them to you!! But.........I can't!! You'll have to wait!!! Heehee....I'm such a tease!!!

But you can join in the fun at the MFT Forum on Wednesday, January 9th when we will be having a New Release Cocktail Party from 9-11pm Eastern time!! There will be sneak peeks, a lot of fun and a chance to become MFT's newest Guest Designer!! And of course, the release of NEW STAMPS!!! What could be better...I ask you????

Well, it's back to work for me today.....and tonight. And my grey hair is really starting to show, so I'd better go dye it so I don't scare all the library patrons away.........wait......would that really be so bad???
