Pinterest Inspiration

Pin It

I apologize in advance for my short post. I am running out of time to get my project for the Amber Inklings Pinny party posted. I need to get the post up and start on dinner, laundry, etc.

My daughter has found the internet. Now all around the PC, there are little scraps of paper with her passwords, etc. for the websites she likes to visit. After getting a little push from the Pinny party on the Amber Inklings blog, I decided to make her a little book to keep her password info and the phone numbers of her friends.

Inside I have sections for passwords, address/phone numbers, and note pages. Here is a link to the template I made for the inside pages. I warn you they are not great but they serve the purpose. Feel fee to download and use as you would like at http://www.mediafire.com/?66wg24i4j0649xn. I think I set it up so that it works. Let me know if you have a problem.

I was inspired by this address book

and this password book that pinned on Pinterest

This was the first time I used the Zutter Bind It All that I bought from a friend. Here is a link to the tutorial I used to figure out how to use it.

You still have a few hours to join the Pinny party. It looks like will be fun. Next week I will plan my time better so that I am not so rushed.

Thank you for stopping by!

  • Stamps: Computer Love (digital stamp) by Meljen’s Designs

Hey girlfriend, I'm so late (ugh been so busy) but first I love this book. What really caught my eye is the password list. I am so going to have to attempt to make one :-). Your coloring is awesome. I totally love it. I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing and joyful Christmas. I may be quiet but am always sending thoughts your way. Hugs

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
