So, with Christmas coming, I wanted to have a place to jot down all of my lists for gift ideas, sizes, baking to do, and so on. I wanted to keep all of my notes in one place, and it needed to be small enough to tuck into a pocket in my purse where the kiddos wouldn't find it! My solution... one of those mini composition books, and my dollar store sells them in a 3-pack! Bingo! Cheap and easy to dress up! :)
I wanted to color up Mrs. Claus from the Santa and Friends set for the cover. After adding a little bit of Glossy Accents to her glasses, I cut her out, and popped her up in the center. The "No Peeking" sentiment from AmyR Joyful Greetings seemed appropriate! :)
The notebook is covered in paper from the Doodlebug Santa Express 6x6 pad. I had some scraps from left over, so I whipped up a matching pen! I just rolled up a small strip of paper, and inserted it into the barrel of a mini gel pen.
Now I have a cute little book to keep all of my Christmas plans organized!
That's all from me!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Oh yeah! We have some extra cuteness joining the C.C. Designs family of Illustrators. I was tickled pink when Dustin contacted me to design stamps for us. I have always loved his incredibly adorable images, and now they are mine, muwahahaha!
The new DT is joining us in a Doodle Dragon Blog Hop. Wait until you see what they have done with the images, your mind will be blown.
To introduce Doodle Dragon we are having a blog hop. 3 of the blogs on the hop are giving away 2 stamps each. But we are not going to tell you who! Leave some love to all the players and on Monday December 1st we will announce the winners.
I have been a huge fan of Dustin's images for sooooo long! I'm pretty sure I purchased my first ever digital stamp from his site many years ago! I remember thinking at the time that he has some of the BEST images for boy cards.
I had the pleasure of coloring up the adorable Special Delivery image for my card today. I love the little baby dragon peeking out of the sack! This image would easily work for boy or girl cards... gotta love a versatile stamp!!
I paired it with a sweet sentiment from AmyR Welcome Little One, and some scraps of paper from my We R Memory Keepers Baby Mine 6x6 pad.
