Here are the pages I created for the booth:
Happy Creating!! I'm off to finish prepping for the Scrapbook Royalty On the Road Event at Pink Pineapple this coming Sunday, Feb 15. We are giving out fairy fly-bys and raising money for the Cancer Coping Center through raffles. Take a class from me at the event too -- the super cute "Whoo Do You Love?" owl mini book featuring Prima papers, flowers,and embellies as well as lots of Glimmer Mist! The event is FREE and the class is $38. See you there!!

To keep it simple I cut 4x5 pages for the inside of the book from this chipboard. I didn't want the book to be too heavy but it needed to be sturdy to hang out in my purse. I completely covered some pages with photos. On other pages I added cardstock and patterned paper to create a simple design. In the middle of the book between photos of my kids I added a mini page to talk about my kids. I love to change up the pages in the middle of a book for a fun surprise.
I sandwiched ribbon between a piece of paper and a piece of chipboard on each cover to make a tie for the book. I punched and bound the book with the Bind It All. Since this project is 4”x5” it was really easy to punch the holes quickly. Set the machine to the “C” setting and then slide your page against the tab on the guide. Then punch away! I added a few embellies and journaling strips after binding the book. This project can be complete in less than 45 minutes, perfect for a gift for your honey! And don't forget Mother's Day will be here before you know it as well.

It's been snowing off and on all day and I am worried about going in the pass- don't want to get stuck down the hill tonight! My class at Collective Journey is postponed until Thursday so hopefully all of this snow stuff will pass by then. For now I am just sitting here trying to get a little bit done on some class kits and get ready for March. See you soon!

I created this card using strictly scraps. I cut some hearts from the Fancy Pants patterned paper and I also punched some with the new Fiskars scalloped heart nesting squeeze punches. I punched a double scalloped border with a Stampin' Up! scalloped border punch and added some of this wonderful red striped ribbon from SU as well. I love that ribbon!!
I tied a small scrap of blue ribbon around the fat striped ribbon. Then I slid the felt diecut ribbon under the knot and secured it with a couple of mini glue dots. The stickers are the leftover alphas I had on a sticker sheet (always have too many U's and V's leftover). I put on some hearts with 3D foam squares and that was it. This card literally took 5 minutes!
