Hey there, boy that Cami...she's a mean one! She actually cracked the whip on me today, and well...I kind of liked it! BWAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!! She told me I needed to get out of my funk and get to blogging again. So here I am, doing what she told me to. *grin*
Before I share mine and Cami's project, I figured I would let you know why I have been MIA and haven't been lurking in blog land. My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in January. We've been busy doing the doctor thing and trying to figure out her best method of treatment. We found out she was not a candidate for surgery at this time. That was VERY disappointing news! Her health isn't good enough right now, so she was instructed to start chemo and blood thinners then go back in six months for another evaluation. That was last month and she just now (yesterday) got started on the chemo! This has NOT been a quick process to say the least! So with that said...I haven't really been in a crafty sort of mood. *sigh* I'm hoping that will change very soon!
Enough about all that! Now...let me tell you about this super fun project that Cami and I will be teaching at Memories of Time on Saturday! OMGosh...it was a blast! We turned a mini legal pad into an adorable notepad complete with mini gel pen! If that wasn't enough, we made a matching card and envelope in case we want to give it as a gift!
I absolutely love this notebook! The flower pot and grass are Taylored Expressions dies and the words are from My Favorite Things. The bumble bee is my all time favorite bee from Our Craft Lounge. I sure do miss them! The honeycomb stencil is from Tim Holtz. We added some Distress Paint to Molding Paste and mixed it in then used a spatula to apply it. Once it was dry, we sponged some matching Distress Stain over the edges. I really love the way this notebook turned out and I can't wait to make more!
The notepad has a magnetic closure. Once you pop it open, you see the gel pen and holder.
Here's the notebook opened up. Don't you just LOVE that bumble bee paper!?! And how about those mitered corners? There's a cool tool for that!
Last but not least, here's the 4" x 4" card that we made with the matching envelope. Cute, cute, cute!
No details to share with this one. Mostly because I'm just too lazy to get up and get the supplies. Ugh! Sorry about that! If you have specific questions, you can always email me and I'll get back to you. Oh, I almost forgot...hurry up and get a hold of Cami to sign up for this class (MOT link above). You will have so much fun making it, you'll want to make another...guaranteed! Ha!
Well, thanks for stopping by!
