WOW, am I glad to not be in the car! :D We put 1600 miles on our car in six days. Let's just say that's a LOT of sitting. LOL!
While we were with Kenn's cousin in Wichita, my sister-in-law, Susan, celebrated a big birthday. Kenn suggested that she'd like a journal when I asked him, so here we go! :)
Colors are obviously Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, and Very Vanilla. The ribbon is the ONLY thing I used that isn't current; I LOVED the satin ribbon from the 2007 Holiday Mini, and since I still had some.... :)
The spine's paper is from the current promotion/sneak peek from the NEW IB&C coming out MONDAY!!! The big mat is cut with the Top Note die; the letters are from the Natural Serif die. The smaller punches are the curly label, as well as CUTE & CURLY, the set that coordinates with the punch.
I think it was a hit, and I liked it myself. :) Susan is a big hiker, and everything except the ribbon is FLAT, so she can put it into her backpack, etc. It feels GOOD to make a gift special for someone!
I'm going to try to get some more posts set up like have the last week, so you'll have something fun to come check out every week day while I work on the OPEN HOUSE projects for next Monday, as well as birthday cards for Saturday's BIRTHDAY BONANZA. :)
What are YOU stamping?? You ARE stamping, aren't you?!?!? :D
