Custom Notebooks Are Fun To Make!

Yep, it has been a long time since I've been here to share some creativity with you.  I'm back today, though, to show you a st of notebooks that I made for two of my friends to use for the next bible study we will be starting in April.

 I bought these 6"x9" notebooks specifically because they have the binding at the top...I thought that would make writing in them for study so much easier!  I used the Illustrated Faith kit called Whatever Is Lovely.  Basically I just chose papers and elements that I thought would look nice together and then personalized it with my friends name.  I also stamped a couple of butterflies from Jaded Blossom's Butterflies stamp set.  The edges have been inked with a grey ink and sponge.  The names were made with Jaded Blossom's Alphabet Dies.  Please note the colors on these notebooks are much brighter in real life...I couldn't get a good pic so I had to do a lot of editing.  I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch to make these, too. 
So, there you have it.  I love making little gifts for friends so when they loved them it made my heart happy!  Have a wonderful week everyone!

Miss Kate Cuttable Guest Design Team Post

Well, it is a fun day here on my blog...my day to guest design team for Miss Kate Cuttables!  Last year I used MKC files to make my husbands Anniversary project (you can take a look at that here if you didn't see it - - it is fab if I do say so myself) and this year I've used MKC to make my granddaughter's first birthday decorations!  Let's get to it!

First I must show you the cutie we were celebrating:
 That's our sweet Hannah girl!  Her dress is a Princess Birthday dress...so cute!  Now onto my project for MKC today!


So, the above centerpieces were made with the It's Your Special Day and Bee files (I just adore that bee...he has so much personality!).  The flowers and title were printed in color on my printer and then I used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut them out.  I then used glue dots to attach them to the decorative straws.  The bird with balloons and the bee's were cut with my Cameo and then pieced together.  I also attached them to decorative straws.


I used my banner board to make her a little birthday banner, too.  This picture is not the best but you get the idea!

And, she loved her cupcake soooo much!  Her brother wasn't so excited about his cake on his 1st birthday so this totally took us by surprise!

I hope you enjoyed my fun centerpieces and that I gave you a little inspiration.  Make sure to check out the Miss Kate Cuttable blog HERE and the store HERE!

Have a beautiful Friday everyone!

Day 4 MHKDesigns New Release - Fanciful Feathers

Here we are on day four of our new release and today is Fanciful Feathers.

 What a fun set this one is, huh?  The feathers are so gorgeous and so many uses for this set and the sentiments.  I went with a little bag for treats:
I've had these bags hanging around my croffice forever so I pulled one out to make this card.  The sentiment is recolored from the set and the paper is actually a pad of Christmas paper but I think it is perfect for a warm little gift for a friend.  A little big of vanilla/gold twine, some enamel dots and it is ready for giving!

Now make sure you hop on over to the MHKDesigns blog for a chance to win not only this gorgeous digital stamp set but all of the sets we'll be releasing this week!  Don't forget that we also have a challenge going on as well...check that out HERE!
