Notebooks!

As many of you know, I worked on the boy's notebooks for his classmates yesterday. Lest you forget (smile), he will be 10 next month.

To make it easy on me, what with Accounting for me, Grandparents arriving in September (and yes, I'd like to see them too!), and just life in general... since I had the WHOLE HOUSE to myself yesterday - I worked on his notebooks! Got everything cut, sticky strip has been applied to most, and I will simply put these together when I have 5 minutes here and 5 minutes there. Assembly line works well for projects!

So here is a picture of one of the notebooks for his class. Please be aware that the Star Wars (R) is not sold by Stampin'Up! The colors that coordinate with this paper are Garden Green and Basic Black.
Each child's name will be die cut and placed on the bottom right of the notebook.

I also made a notebook for a friend. I've already delivered it to her and she says she likes it. Hope she's being honest.  :)  I've used the Paisley Prints DSP, Bashful Blue, and Marina Mist for the papers. I've also added a Paper Daisy flower (item #119243), a Bashful Blue Butterfly (from the Beautiful Wings SU! exclusive embosslit - item #118138), and a Light Blue Rhinestone Brad from the Circle Ice Brads (item #109111).
Same exact design - TOTALLY different look!
And you can see the top of my friend's name that is on the bottom of this notebook.

On both of these, because SU! no longer sells the hole punch I used to use on these, I used my Crop-A-Dile (item #108362) to punch the holes. It was SO MUCH EASIER than that silly little handpunch I used to use. It makes WAY LESS noise, but the grip is just a bit wider (and by "just" I mean wider - smile).


And last but not least, I'll be making another posting today. The Summer Mini Catalog expires at the end of this month. I'll be offering a one-time special today through Saturday, August 27th. Check back later today for more information!
