All supplies are CTMH:
– 3×3 Mini Album (cream with organdy)
– Paper: Life Delights and Colonial White cardstock
– Colors: Sweet Leaf, Lilac Mist, Blush, Baby Pink, Chocolate (and blending pen).
– Stamp Sets: Free Spirit, June Word Puzzle, Friendship Blessings, Spot on Backgrounds, Playful Flourishes, April Word Puzzle, Celebrate Life, A Friend Is…, and Made by Me.

I used a blending pen to color in the flowers on the front cover. The cover was very easy to stamp on, just lay the book open and hold flat with the ribbon tucked under. Now I want to do more of a “boy” one.  I’ll share when I get it done but it could be awhile. :-)

Stephanie was being silly this day and making all kinds of faces.  It felt funny because she had just lost a tooth.

Notepads for Kids (or Adults)

These notepads were fun and easy to make, and also inexpensive.  My kids have used them for party favors and in place of birthday treats at school.  The kids love them!

Directions: Cut your paper 3″ x 6 1/4″.  Score 3″ from each end and fold.  This gives you a 1/4″ in the center for the height of your inner paper.  Decorate the outside of the notepad however you wish.  Use double stick tape to adhere a post-it pad on the inside and your done!  If you plan to use eyelets like I did, I would recommend using the Crop-a-Dile.  It sets beautifully and will not leave any sharp edges.  I used CTMH papers: Rough ‘N Tumble, More to Adore, Good Times, Whoops-A-Daisy, and Let’s Get Together.  Stamps used were also CTMH: Little Boys, Adorable, Star Struck, Flutter, Fun Times, and Love in Bloom.
