I think you're COOL

I am hosting a Ice Cream Challenge in a scrapbook group I am in on Cafemom. The challenge is to create anything with an Ice Cream Theme. So for fun I did this card. I am actually pretty psyched at how cute it came out. So it got me thinking...why not host the same challenge here?
Here is the deal...
Post an Ice Cream Themed creation (sky is the limit) by February 6th...and I will pick one at random to send a COOL surprise to! Just put a link in your comment where we can see it...or if you can't do that, you can email it to me...I will post here!
You can do anything you want as long as it has an Ice Cream Theme.
So I scream...we all scream...FOR ICE CREAM!!!
Have Fun...can't wait to see what everyone creates.

Receipt Holder Book

Receipts Holder Book
This is great for keeping in your purse. I always misplace the receipts I really need. But I seem to always have the ones for that cup of Starbucks!

What you will need:
Envelopes (how many is up to you...I used five)
Patterned cardstock
Paper clips and Brads (optional)
Hole Punch or We R Memory Keepers: Crop-A-Dile II Big Bite
Ink for edges (optional)

I used some envelopes I had that were I a size I would not use for cards. You can use any size you want. Since mine were kind of big, I cut them down. Originally they were 7 ¼ x 5 1/4, I cut them down to 4 inches tall.


Cut Down:

Next cut the patterned paper to cover your envelopes. In my case I cut it to 8 inches x 4 inches. You want to cut it at least ¾ of an inch longer than your envelopes length. When you cover the envelope, you will want the extra paper to be on the left side when you are looking at the front of the cover envelope. Adhere it to the back of the envelope.

Once you have all of the envelopes covered, cut two more pieces of patterned cardstock the same size (these will be you front and back covers).
Stack all of the envelopes covered side up. Place the back cover so that it is even with the right edges of your envelopes. Fold the extra length over to the front of the stack. Then put the front cover on and fold the extra length to the back of the stack. Then punch your holes (at least two) down the edges with the extra length. This is easy to do if you have a Big Bite...if not you may have to do a few at a time.

Bind it with ribbon, notebook rings or like I did. I used the extra posts that came with album refills.

Embellish how you want. I made some labels for each envelope. I used paper clips so that I could also use them to hold the envelopes shut if they get really filled (you know... too much shopping). I cut out a notch in the envelope so the tabs would sit lower.

And here you have it...with and without the tabs.

It is really much more simple than I may have explained it. Please let me know if you have any questions.

New Year's Resolution

Okay...I am going to give it a shot. I never seem to make my Resolutions stick. But I think I can do this one. My Resolution is to send out the birthday and holiday cards I make in a timely time!! So I made this organizer box. I used an old Click Clack container. The dividers are made from 3 Bugs in a Rug Playful Collection paper stuck to DCWV self-adhesive cardstock in a coordinating color (tell me you don't LOVE that self-adhesive cardstock!!!). I had some leftover metal tabs from Making Memories (I just covered up the words that were embossed on them). A standard size card fits perfectly in there. I have extra envelopes stored in the back. On the fronts of each divider is a place for all the birthdays for that month as well as that month's Holidays. I also made a little address book that fits on the side. On the back of the address book I adhered a little clear pocket to hold stamps. The idea here is to make a few cards every week and then file them in the appropriate month. So every month I should be all set to fill out the card and mail it off. If I get even more adventurous...I can pre-address the envelopes someday when I have nothing better to do!!!
