Pocket on left- Holds extra daily tags, that  will slip into the flip section on the right. See photo below .Also this pocket holds a JUNE calendar. However you can add any month or switch out months.

 In the photo below you can see the pull out Meal Planner. This planner will hold 2 weeks. however I did 1 on it, just to give you an idea. Also I think I would change it, so you could easily switch out the days, by putting a pocket for this!

So today I have a super SIMPLE & Easy card to make using I Brake For Stamps "How Beautiful a Day" stamp. How beautiful this stamp is, I LOVE it!!!!

 I love when you need a quick card and when they come together in less than 10 minutes. This one I cut the white card stock at 4 1/2" x 9" then scored at 4 1/2" to create my card. Next I took a piece of scrap dp I was using on another project and layered it on the pink card stock that was also a scrap. LOVE that I use them up! The beautiful frame I had already cut, and all I had to do was stamp my sentiment in memento black ink, and cut out an oval shape, airbrush, and added some ribbon and flowers using hot glue!

Wooden Ribbon Stand (Handcrafted)

Hello everyone, and Happy Tuesday! Today I have a Super FUN Wooden Ribbon Stand( HOLDER) decorated for Really Reasonable Ribbon! I had my husband make me 2 of these stands, and thought how fun to decorate using Really Reasonable Ribbon items. I love having the ribbon on these as I no longer have a big mess on my work station. You can add what you need to them for a project, and all it all in one place, not scattered about your work space...hehehehe

 So we started with picking the bases out, and a dowel. Next I painted them white, and added some Beautiful Grosgrain Polka Dot Ribbon, and Red Mini Ric Rac around the base. Next I took the Moss Green Seam binding and ruched it up for greenery, and then added some Sweetheart Blossoms, and 2 Lipstick Red Seam Binding Flowers I created.
 These stands are perfect for holding the spools from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and I am so glad to have these now, as I always have tons of spools all over my work station, and this way I can have them all on this. Makes crafting much easier, and these are very cheap to make!

I hope you enjoyed my post for today, thank you for looking and PLEASE let me know what you think!!

So for this page I used the Beautiful Satin Double faced ribbon in Hot Pink 5/8" wide for my BOW! Now for on the Interactive part where the photo's will go inside I used the Black Sheer Box Pleat Trim. I hot glued it, and then added some bling. Next I added some of the Double Ruffled Edge Satin in Azalea 1 1/2" thick, cut in half and layered for a double ruffle layered look.

 I did add some WOC flowers, random flowers, and glass leaves to my layout for today. I used Feathers, and some swirl bling for my page as well. I cant wait to finish my album and share in a video with you all!
 I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE how all the ribbon, and embellishments look on this Posh paper! I hope my daughter loves it too! I figured this will be Chloey's album for when she is in her toddler years. I will have to work on an actual BABY album, and have plenty of time to do so :)

I chose to make another one of my Toilet Paper INVITES!

For my Invite today, I used a Toilet Paper roll and painted the edges white. I then added some dp and cut out the partial circle using a punch., that way my tag with all info can slide in and the bow fits perfect. Next I added my 4th of july sicker and made sure the placement was good. I did use the Gingham Red from Mays Ribbon Club assortment to create a bow, and place it in the upper left corner, then hot glued all my pieces. I wanted to use the super pretty red white and blue ribbon, so I used it along the bottom of my invite. This is also in the May Ribbon assortment!

 Flowers are placed by the stars, they are Really Reasonable Ribbons Sweetheart Blossoms. I did place a Vintage Feather behind all of it.

Wise Women "Friends"

 Hello everyone and Happy Thursday to all!
Today I made my card for The Project Bin Stamps using A Way With Words Set "Wise Women"! Love these sentiments as you can get so creative with them. On my card for today I did just that!
 My Sentiment was stamped 3 times-
Once on the white card stock that I cut out with a spellbinders die, and airbrushed with red copic marker, next on the blue design paper, and then on the pink design paper. I wanted to use all 3 colors that I used on my card for today.

Card Base- Measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and cut in white
Next my blue layer is cut at 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" , then pink at 5" x 5", and red polka dots at 4 3/4" x 4 3/4"

4 3/4" x 3 3/4" is the next panel in pink, then red is cut at 4 1/2" x 3 1/2", and then blue design paper at 4 1/4" x 3 1/4", and then I added my sewing. I always use just one short run of ATG tape and then add my sewing. That way my layers at least stick, but sewing them surely keeps them together for years and years to come. As most of us know, tape does over the years break down due to air exposure .

Embellishments- For my Ribbon, Flowers, and Leaves, those are all from Really Reasonable Ribbon. The doily is CheeryLynn , and the dots are from American Crafts . Sewing is done in red, and then a blue.
Crafty Gals Corner/ polka Dots or stripes
Paper Craft Crew/Flowers
Simon Says /Flowers
The Crafty Addicts/ sentiment and anything goes!
CheeryLynn Challenge/Red White & Blue(I did add some Pink) just had to :) hehehe
