Oh Boy!

Morning all! Hope everyone is enjoying their week so far! If you haven't joined in on my Welch Creations challenge #5 be sure to do so (Click here for more details).

My sweet friend Shannel is having a boy and I have the honor of throwing her a shower! And of course that means doing my own invitations! I found the wording for my invites just by doing a google search.

I just printed these off on my home computer, then ran them through my Big Shot with the Stampin Up Top Notes die. The mustache is an SVG cut given to me by my friend Patsy and the bowtie was also printed out, cut out, then popped up! And lastly, the blue mat is embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder! Thought these turned out cute!

As always, ENJOY!

Memo Holder w/Pencil

If your looking for my Welch Creations challenge #5 click here!

Took a last minute trip to Dallas this past weekend to see family and one of my good friends! Enjoyed it, but am certainly glad to be back home!

I was sitting around today thinking of what to create and I have all these large post-it pads and wanted to make use of them! I've seen lots of notepad holders out there, but wanted to try my own so here's what I came up with.

Here's how I made it:
Notepad Base - 4 1/8" x 10 1/2" (Scored @ 4 5/8",  5 1/8" and right in the middle of both those score lines)
Yellow Mat - 3 7/8" x 4 3/8"
Cream Mat - 3 5/8" x 4 1/8"
Cardstock - Stampin Up
Fresh Vintage Stamp Set - Stampin Up
Large Post-it Pad & Pencil - Office Depot

As always, ENJOY!

Toilet Paper Mini Album

So I'm sure ya'll have noticed that I haven't posted my next challenge. The time change sure has thrown me off, but I will definitely get that challenge posted early this week.

For now, I have my first toilet paper mini album to show ya'll! If you've never made one, this is something you MUST try! They are so easy and fun! For step by step instructions see below.

For mine I used 4 toilet paper rolls and the first thing you want to do is flatten them:

Now using patterned paper or paper of your choice, cut 4 pieces at 4" x 7" ( That's the roll length by 2x the rollwidth + 1 inch).

After you cut those pieces place adhesive on all of them and wrap them around your rolls. ( I used score tape for this project)

I then decided to ink all the edges of my rolls and punch 2 holes in each roll:

Those aside, I grabbed a piece of chipboard for my inserts and cut them at 4.25" x 2.75". After they are all cut, I wrapped the patterned paper around them and cut off the top corners to make it look like a tag.

Once you have all of that done, its time to put it all together. Here's how mine came out, but you could also use binder clips instead of ribbon.

Hope ya'll enjoy!
