Phone/address book

I hope you are enjoying the summer and playing with your sweetpea stamps. I still have a lot I've never used and this is one of them. It's by the very talented Meredith Dillman and is called blue fairy from plate 76. Isn't she gorgeous?

I've been in desperate need for a new addressbook the last couple of months. I have everything written in a simple notebook with no order and it's been driving me crazy having to flip through the whole thing to find what I need. So during my last flipping I got really annoyed and decided to make this book I've been planning for ages. You can use it for anything you might need to find fast: your kid's friends numbers, people on your Christmaslist or why not a page per month writing down how much you've exercised or your measurements.

I started by cutting out 6 pages in cardstock and 2 in patterned paper for the front and back. I used a qk die so the holes were already there for the brads, but it's easy to make yourself. You will need to score on each page to make it possible for it to open. I also cut out 6 qk tabs in the same cardstock. The pages and tabs are inked on the edges with distress ink to give a neater look. The image is coloured with promarkers and the background with distress inks. The fairy has some sparkle on her wings made by a sakura gelly roll. I also used one of the corners from Holiday (plate 12) to add some interest which I'm very happy with. I inked one corner in a purple distress ink and stamped on all 4 corners of the image. Finally I attached the tabs, image and brads. Finally I'll be able to find what I need quickly!
