Nicole's Calendar

I wanted to get this on here right away. I am so very pleased with how it turned out. I hope my daughter will feel the same way. She was just recently married and I thought making this will help her remember when everyone's birthdays and anniversaries are.
I found this on another ladies blog and knew right away this was what I wanted to make for Nicole.

I used the following items to make this book:
Stampin' Up! products unless noted
Paper: DSP Berry Bliss, Whisper White, Purely Pomegranate, Pretty in Pink
Tools: Scallop punch, Boho Blossoms punch, Circle punch 1 3/8", Circle Rhinestone brads (Fire),
White gel pen, 1/16 hole punch, Bind-it-All machine
Misc.: Computer to print the cover words, and for the monthly calendars on the inside pages.

Double Pocket Card

I really liked the Double Pocket Card I seen people were making on Sudsol. I decided I would try and make one myself. I think I would change how I put the little insert cards next time around, but it was a fun project to make. Next one I make I want to have the double pockets on the front of the card, instead of being inside.
Materials used are Stampin' Up!
Stamp Set: Priceless
Paper: DSP Le Jardin, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla
Tools: Ticket Punch, Paper Cutter
Accessories: Very Vanilla Ribbon, Antique Brass Brad
Stamp Pad: Bashful Blue

Pocket Pouches

I was able to teach some women at a Mother/Daughter Banquet a project that is very easy to do. The women all seemed to love it. A lot of them were going to make them at home and use them for different purposes. I taught this because it is something anyone can make and give.

Materials are all Stampin' Up!

Stamp Set: Priceless
Paper: DSP Rose Red 8 1/2 " x 8 1/2", Very Vanilla
Stamp Pad: Rose Red
Punch: Scallop Punch
Accessories: 3D foam dot, Small Cellophane Bag
Candy: Mints, and Chocolates (you could use about anything that would fit into this pouch, gift cards, small toys, etc.)
