everyday special occasions
it’s DEC 13!! that means total crunch time for homemade holiday gifts! i made this about a week ago, and kept meaning to get it photographed so i could share it.. it’s a quick DO-ABLE project, and something that any and everyone would love to receive (or make and keep for ones’ self). i think it would be so fun to make as a teacher gift, it would sit so cute on a desk… great for dad… grandma…new baby! whatever… (katie is having her baby tomorrow!!! squeel!) ok… so guess what i made this from? yep, IKEA box. (getting desperate!)
i have to say, that i love the ‘street smarts’ papers from my summer release. they are just cool… go well together, fun and easy going and perfect for this album entitled ‘everyday special occasions…’ . i just went through a printed off a month’s worth of goings-ons… i have found w/ the older boys, i have to be really careful on the cutesy stuff… so even though this isn’t ‘all boy’… it’s not got ANY pink… or a single jEWEL!
i did use some clear and glossy extras..tim’s stampers anonymous calendar stamps, and just kept it simple with random sticker and journaling spots, i have about 10 pages in it. you know what is cool, it’s a pretty sturdy book actually… even the babies can manage not to crumple it!
