Swell News

Hello! This is for My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I used the set She's Having a Baby. While I was going through my piles of stuff over the weekend I found this little stash from Making Memories Chloe's sweet. The dress is paper pieced from a little piece of Basic Grey paper I had. I wonder how long it would take me to use up all the little pieces of paper I have?
Last year, I designed this notebook because I was using an old regular address book to keep track of online passwords and websites. Surely I could make something better than this, I thought. I used a Print Shop program to make the inside pages.

The outside pages (5 1/2 x 8 1/2) are made from 12 x 12 sheets of whatever scrapbook paper I have laying around. I have the outside pages laminated for durability and then use a Bind it All to hold it all together.

The sticky note holder is made from left over paper and cut to 3 1/2 x 3 1/4 in. and then also laminated. I have given so many of these as gifts... really fun.

If you are absolutely head over heals excited to try one of these, I can send you the file for the inside pages. They just won't have the alphabet index on top. I'm not sure if you could add that to the pdf that I am sharing, but you could certainly hand write it or stamp it! Just send an email and I will get the file sent right off! (

If you don't want to bother to make one, you can always take a look at the collection I have on Etsy :)

Thanks so much for stamping by today!
