My New Datebook............and Magnolia Blog Candy!!!
YEP!! You've been waitin' for it and here it IS!!! Your chance to win some AMAZING goodies from Magnolia Designs!!! But WAIT!!! You have to read about my creation first..........or you can just skip over it and go straight to the bottom!!! It's up to you!!
Well, you know I love my job at the library.....really I do. BUT it's not my passion. My passion is stamping, papercrafting.....creating. I wish I could do it for a living.....but alas, I need the income of my 'real job'. It takes up a lot of my time, so I have to really manage my 'spare time' properly in order to complete my list of designs, samples and challenges for each of my Design Teams. I need to know what needs to be done by when, emailed to who, uploaded where and blogged about when!!!
SO I decided to make myself my very own crafty datebook!!! I bought some 4x6 recipe cards at the dollar store and cut two covers, slightly bigger than the cards themselves from the thin cardboard that comes in the SU designer paper packs. I covered them with Blue Bayou cardstock and used my Bind-it-All machine to put it all together with spiral wire. Then I decorated the front with Lavender Lace cardstock, DCWV Baby Boy dp, stitched grosgrain ribbon, button brads, Prima flowers, a glittery purple brad and I added a bunch of ribbon on the wires. I actually added a bunch more after I took the picture, so it's even more lovely now. Of course, I used one of my new Tilda stamps from the Summer Stamp Club Kit and coloured her in with my Copics, then added Stardust Stickles to her wings and added some highlights to her cheeks with some white acrylic paint. She is sitting in an oval layer that I made using my Nestabilities and I pop dotted the whole thing. I really love it!! Now I have this little notebook that I keep beside my computer and I can keep myself completely organized! And it's so PURDY too!!!
