post it notebooks

I'm so hooked on making these little books. They are so easy to do. The first time I used a purchased template for the 3x3 book cover ( but have made so many that I don't even need it anymore. I think I'll give these as teacher gifts for the end of school. Again, using CTMH products.

Let me know if you want the instructions posted and I'll be happy to do so.


Little things

I absolutely love making little (mini) albums. Here is a 6x6 chipboard accordion-style album made for mom. She asked for some albums dealing with friendship. Everything here (except for the blue rhinestones on the front) is CTMH. Nope, I'm not a consultant but totally love how things match so perfectly and effortlessly. I have a new paper-pack coming in today (Bella) that I can't wait to play with. I might have to break into it before the Tuesday night crop. The tags were easily cut with my Pazzle.

Teacher Appreciation

I don't think I would have attempted these without the pazzle! I cut each box and the SMS. It didn't take that long as I had 3 mats going. The tag reads "Just a little somthing EXTRA to let you know we think you are worth a 100 GRAND. There is no need to go NUTS, simply open and enjoy!". Then filled it with extra gum, 100 grand bar and a hershey bar w/ nuts. I think they turned out real cute and only took about 5 hours to complete them all. Teacher appreciation gets harder as the kids get older. The easiest for me is elementary school and I think these turned out great for middle school. I have no idea what to do for high school but I have until next year to worry about that!
