You are going to love GinaK's newest StampTV Kit "Organize it!" Oh my word, when I first saw the stamps included, I was just floored how useful all the images and words are, for making lists, tabs, planners in a pretty way, but also how beautiful and versatile the images and fonts she selected are, they go way beyond getting organized! The plans I have for the organizers will take a little more time to complete, and I suspect you'll see some awesome ones in our hop today, so I'll share some simple ones! The first stamp I had to ink up was the "little black book"! That Gina, she is feisty!
The label was stamped in Memento Black on Pure Luxury White and punched with a 1 -3/4" circle. I stamped the heart from the set in cranberry ink and adhered it over the black one in the middle.
And here's my LBB (little black book)!It's just paper, and A2 sized. Cut a 5 1/2"x 81/2" piece of Black Onyx cardstock and round the four corners with the small corner rounder punch. Now place one end in the Mosaic Cuttlebug folder, centered into the pattern so it leaves a space on the sides. Repeat on the other side. You will have about a 1/4" in between each embossed side with no pattern, this will be the spine, and you'll see how easy it will just fold at these edges without scoring! Emboss another scrap of black with the same print, and cut a strip 5/8" x 4" and round these corners also. Adhere the end with Scor-Tape to the back of the book in the middle. The closure tab is cut with a Cuttlebug Tiny Tag die, place a 5mm adhesive nail head over each hole on the ends, bend, then adhere to the front middle of the book, leaving a "hump" instead of adhering it flat for the strip to to easily pass through. That's it!
You can put a Valentine message inside (with JUST your sweetheart's name and number! hee! (and maybe a rating! 10 of course!) ;) and present it as a card, OR attach a large post-it note pad inside , the long strip gives plenty of room for the book to expand. Adhere some pockets inside if desired. This thing totally looks like the real deal, I am just so excited about how it turned out!
Oh, a quick update I was able to do with the set, I added some tabs from Pure Luxury White to my Tech Talk addy book I shared a couple weeks ago, using the same circle punch to go around the tabs. The space inside the semicircle is left blank to add the many tiny words included in the set. Too cool!
As always, the kit is packed with an amazing assortment of crafting goodies: 2 stamp sets, 24 sheets of heavy base cardstock, an assortment of brads, ivory sateen flowers and 12 yards of a variety of beautiful coordinating ribbons in 5/8" and 3/8" widths.
