Party it up!!!!

We are definitely having a party over here! Thank you to all that are visiting and following along with the GCD Studios blog hop. Today's the second day but if you're just now tuning in, you might wanna hop on to the GCD studios blog for more info plus there's some fun prices in store if you participate.

So onto the share shall we.....

First of all the Party it up collection was another line that I was very excited to work with. The colors are right up my alley plus the diff. dot designs got me all jumpin for joy.

Here's what I made....
Dates to remember minibook

I recycled this old baby board book into this...


the "party" theme of the line got me inspired to make something that I can store cards in and write down important dates all through out the year.

Here's more close up pics...

I added monthly tabs for ease. The brown border is a gaffer tape from another company. I decided to use it in this project cause I wanted to reinforce that part of the book. I wanted the book to be strong.




an inside look to one of the pages. I made the monthly calendar in my word document (very easy) printed it off then adhered it over the papers. I also created a pocket so I can stick some greeting cards in it.


and the back side of the book.

so for more inspirations continue on to Nancy's blog.

Happy blog hoppin!

Till next time,
Grace
