PJ party projects

Today I was able to take pictures of the projects I made at Jen's house last night. Unfortunately, for some reasons the pictures are really blurry -- sorry! But you'll get an idea anyway.

The first project is a cool little photo wallet. This was a project designed by Stamipn' Up! Demonstrators who attended the Stampin' Up! leadership convention this year could order these Make and Take kit projects, and so Jen ordered some for us. We stamped the wallet using the Doodle This and Doodle Alphabet stamp sets. It's a cool little mini scrapbook. It's held closed by a belly band. When you slip the belly band off, inside you have room for 3 photos or journaling on the black card stock and the 6 additional more pages for photos or journaling on the color card stock that pulls out of envelope pockets. Very Cool! If you would be interesting in learning how to make a similar photo wallet post a comment below or send me an e-mail to and if there are enough people interested I will schedule a class.
The next project was an On Board Art Journal. This little journal is new in the Spring Mini Catalog, as is the spiral punch that I used to create the holes in the designer paper allowing me to cover the chipboard cover perfectly. I used the Notations double sided designer paper to cover both the cover and the chipboard "m" from the on board simon lower chipboard assortment, which to me stands for "memories". The 20 inside pages are very vanilla card stock, and you can also add other colors of card stock pages because you can use the spiral punch to make the pages easy to insert.
I love this little journal (inside pages measure 5.25x5.25) because it's perfect for so many occasions. It would be a great memory book for a graduating senior -- a place for photos and reflections from friends. It would also be a beautiful gift for mother's day or father's day or, filled with advice, a beautiful gift for a baby or bridal shower. It's easy to customize the journal simply by choosing different designer paper or stamp set to decorate the covers and inside pages. And the best thing? Priced at only $6.95 it's one of the best bargains around!
