bday craft

Hi there...
These adorable books are the craft that the girls at Mikayla's 12th bday party made earlier in the month. I found the awesome link at Becky Higgins website for About Me journals. She has one for adults and one for teens....Anyway even though I loved the idea I wasn't sure about how to put the pages together....didn't want to pay to have them bound. Sooooo I was SUPER excited to find these binders at Staples that were the perfect size! Plus they had the area in the front to put a piece of paper of course the girls had to personalize them! With all my Saleabration orders in Jan/Feb i've been ordering the Ice Cream parlour paper pack. That way each girl had their own sheet of 12x12 cardstock stickers and coordinating paper to match! I used my clear block and clear mount alphabet set for them to stamp their names. It came together very quickly (1 hr at the party) and they took the extras home and they could do the writing at home too. I believe its 27 pgs total. Each pg of my sample book (Kylie's) has some type of sticker on it too so the 1 pg was plenty!
Hope you liked this idea,

last Make n' Take

Well, here is the last project made at the Vancouver Regionals that I attended at the end of February. SU really outdid themselves this time around as the projects were beautiful and we got to use many accessories. Its always fun to see them in real life before buying....
I LOVE the seam binding that is found on pg 16 as its so light and easy to work with. Also good if mailing as it doesn't weight down your card.

I'll be posting some card fronts swaps that my fellow team members rec'd at Regionals next.

Happy Stampin'
