To Do...

I saw at Creating Keepsakes they had a file to download from Becky Higgins where you can write all your layouts to do, as well as keep track of photos printed, journaling done, etc. The file wasn't really my style, but it got me to thinking about a little notebook I could put in my purse and take with me to doctor's appts etc.

So this is what I came up with.

The front and back covers are chipboard (5 1/4" x 7 1/2"), covered in Basic Grey's Scarlet Letter paper and the "to do" are the letter stickers from that line. The bird is a ghost shape from Close to My Heart, I once again covered the back with Christmas red stickles and popped it up on foam tape. I love the look of that.

The back cover also has a strip of Papertrey Ink's poppy red satin ribbon, distressed with ink to match the look of the BG paper.

I created my own table in word, then inserted a digital file for the background. (The digi file came from ScrapGirls) I included several pages printed front and back with the table on it.

Then I included LOTS of blank pages with just the digi file on it, printed front and back again, for ideas sketches, other to do lists, challenge sketches etc.

And then bound it with my Bind It All, 3/4" wire.

Thanks for visiting!

  1. I just stumbled across your site when I was browsing through blog sites. I have always wanted to get into scrapbooking, but I'm kind of clueless on what to do and where to start. I bought all kinds of little stickers and scrapbooking things with good intentions of redoing my first daughters baby book. I'm now scheduled to be induced with my third child on tuesday and I still haven't done it! I love what you have on here. Did you learn on your own or take any classes? Just curious how you got into it?
