OK, so it's not really Hawaiian...but it could be! Just imagine a tiny hula skirt around the middle of the book. This is another one of those "Gee, I wish I had remembered to take a pic of that before I messed with it..." but didn't books. I saw this book at Tuesday Morning and just knew I could think of something cutsie to do with it.
The paper is from K & Co. and yes I am still playing with that paper pack. I cut the letter out with the Don Juan Cartridge on my Cricut. The inside of the book is covered in the green paper that is under the words "notes". I put packing tape on the strip of paper that I cut for the words and when I cut them out they were shiny! I'm really having too much fun...

September is a heavy month for birthday's around the cardsister house! I found this die at Michael's last month...the only thing I could find to spend my 50% off coupon on...to make gift card holders. It's a lot of fun and they (I made two) did come out kinda cute, don't ya think? I'm gonna make some of these for Christmas this year for my Mom. So that's it for today-see ya back here in two days!!

More K & Co. paper, stamp by stampabilities and Primas! I re-covered this little clipboard three times. Always messed something up, but I finally came up with this and I like it! The pen fit perfectly into an 18 guage wire trap that I made and super glued on. OK, I'm going to go make some more stuff...

One of these days I am going to remember to take BEFORE pictures!!! This was a little book my daughter gave me that she didn't like. It had no personality...very plain jane...mustard colored cover...some writing of sorts...very forgetable. Of course you won't know that because I forgot to take the before picture! Oh, well, I am going to try and do better! The paper is K & Co. with pretty Primas.

I got a little "T!m Holtz" on this one! I used the Brackets die to cut the card edge and the swirl die for the swirl at the top of the card. The paper is from K & Co, the butterfly is MS, the button is Jenny Bowlin and the stamp is from Papertrey, Inc. The feather is from my favorite white boa! OK, OK, it's not really my favorite boa...but I am pretty fond of it!
