Time Gets Away From Me

There is only so much I can do. I need to learn to embrace this concept. LOL! I have way more plans than I realistically have time to complete in between work and family. But I did manage to squeeze in a few projects. As promised, here are a couple more photos of what I've been up to. Regrettably I did not take more individual photos of the notebooks and they are all gone. But I have more supplies and I'm getting ready to make another batch and I'll try to do better with photos.

I made two styles of notebooks. The tall skinny ones are very popular lately especially among the Papertrey Ink crowd thanks to the new set Take Note. Add a little embellishment and a pen and it's a wonderful gift. The second style was a little more labor intensive but I really liked the results. I covered pieces of chipboard with decorative paper and then spiral bound them with my Bind-it-All. One of my favorite things about this style is that I created a little cardstock pocket on the back flap by stitching a piece of cardstock to my decorative paper before I glued it to the chipboard. The back of the notepad slides down inside it. This way the notepad can be replaced and you can use the cover over and over.

And here is the ever popular "Snowman Poop" gag gift for anyone you know who's been a little naughty this year. :)

Thanks for stopping by! I am starting on Christmas cards and gifts this weekend and will be sharing more soon.

I know what you mean about time getting away. Happens to me too.Your notebooks came out great. I especially like the ones you made with your bind it all. I got this set too but have not had time to make anything with it yet. Thanks for the inspiration though.
