Using Summer Mini Catalog DSPs
I love the DSPs in the Summer catalog!! I have had this ugly little notebook for ages but didn't know what to do with it, so I decided to pimp it with Bali Breeze paper! Once I added a label with a frame from the silver hodgepodge set, a couple of round tabs and a vanilla ribbon it now looks like something I will keep and use rather than throw out. The stamps on the round tabs are from 'Office Accoutrement' (one of my favorite sets) and the one on the front is from a cute set called 'Short and Sweet Sayings'.
I was on a roll so I decided to cover my 2009 diary. I used Bali Breeze paper again, and more stamps from my favorite set 'Office Accoutrement'. I also used the spiral punch to make the neat 'ripped from a notebook' effect, and also the round tab, designer tag and 1" circle punches. The word "diary" is stamped on whisper white using a set called 'Big Deal Alphabet' - my favorite set for scrapbooking titles.
Finally, Rainy (who is another demonstrator up here in Whangarei) and I went to Auckland last weekend for Jacque's teams' 'Auckland Extravaganza'. It was great to meet all the other demos from Auckland and try the cool projects they had us make. I was even lucky enough to win a door prize - a case for my roller accessories, which I will pimp and post a photo of soon. Anyway, we went down in Rainy's car so I made a little something to thank her:
Here is a better picture of the notebook - I used the Ginger Blossom papers this time. This DSP goes so well with Groovy Guava and Purely Pomegranate - I'm so gonna miss those colours from April!
