Lil' Rebel

I made this for a friend's ds and dil. They are expecting a baby boy in August and they are huge Ole Miss fans. The baby's room is in an Ole Miss football theme,...can't wait to see the pics of that! How cute! I made this onesie card using this tutorial:
I "hung" it on the bag as if it were on a clothes line, not sure why it just seemed like a good idea at the time. The card was really easy, I couldn't believe it.

I also made the new mommy a coupon holder for baby coupons since she'll receive a ton. I guess I came up with this idea on my own. I thought of how grocery store coupon organizers work and went from there. I'm one of those people who believes that no idea is new...but I haven't seen one like it that I know of (please correct me if I'm wrong). I used the Bind-It-All to bind it. To be honest, I just look for things to bind, hehe!

There are 6 pockets: diapers/wipes, formula, food, medicines and creams, bath/body and misc.
And yes, that's my Scor-Pal in the background. I almost love it as much as my JustRite Stamper! :)

Thanks for looking!

Another Version of 1st Card

The more I looked at the first card I posted, the more I didn't like it...there was just something missing. So, I disassembled it and tried again. This is what I came up with. I love the Swiss Dots embossed background. I bought the Cuttlebug embossing folder and ran it through a pasta machine. Yes, you read that correctly, a pasta machine. Worked like a charm! :)

Bunco Gifts

It's my month to host bunco and since we aren't actually playing bunco (we're going out to dinner) I thought I'd make a little something for everyone (we usually do prizes based on bunco scores). I found these little memo pads with pens at Michael's. They had fairies and stripes on them. I decided to cover them with this PP I found and fix them up a little bit. I used bashful blue cardstock, my pink Mary punch, SU's scallop punch, SU's seeing spots stamp set, ribbon from Michael's, stickles, and of course my favorite new toy...the Just Rite Monogram Stamper for the verse. For those of you who don't know, the binder clip is made into a memo/photo holder. You just slide the paper or photo between the "handles". The ribbon keeps it together to actually hold something. I used my big Xyron with permanent adhesive on everything. It doesn't want to stick on the metal binder clips though. Next time I do those, I'll use the tape runner. It seemed to work fine on my sample. I hope they enjoy their goodies!
