Celebrate in Style Notebook...

Whew! Finished cleaning out the supplies I no longer need! Luckily most of them sold locally so it saved me many trips to the PO...thanks ladies! I still have supplies/stamp sets left, just scroll to the previous post if your interested.

I picked up some more notebooks the other day and decided I wanted to try a new size. This size is perfect for an add-on gift or something to slip in the kids backpacks for their teachers. I started by taking off the coil and added the SU! chocolate cs and the patterned paper. When I create these notebooks I just can't stand going without sewing the layers adds just the perfect touch around the edges and also makes the focal image really stand out! To create the sentiment and slider I used my SU! small slot punch (you could also use any small ribbon slider punch) and cut my paper ribbon to desired length. Stamp set is "Let's Go for a Walk" by MFT

Added a little rhinestone on the flourish, which is from a PTI set.

So who LOOOOOVES Etsy?? Well, I first heard about Etsy on GMA many years ago when it first hit the airwaves. I've browsed and bought many things on this wonderful website and I really love to buy handmade ANYTHING! I've contemplated opening a shop since I could remember and I'm finally going to make the BIG leap and try it out. I've been doing custom orders for a few years now and have many requests to set up a page with my creations along with their prices. I don't have a set date when this will begin. I've set up my acct. and all the techy stuff, just need to throw up pics and get going. I will be sure to post here when I've opened up shop!
