Computer Info Notebook

Hi everyone! I think I have a Christmas hangover. I've been working on Christmas projects, gifts, recipes, etc for so long that I don't know what to do with myself now! We had a wonderful holiday but I'm glad it's over now. I'm ready to start the new year off with a bang.

A few days ago, I posted some basket tags that I made to get my organizing going. Today I made a new computer information notebook that will hold all of my family's favorite websites, passwords, website addresses, etc. You can see that my old notebook in the background was looking pretty shabby. My notebook was super easy to make. I simply cut my front and back pieces of cardstock to measure 4" x 6", which will match the size of the lined notecards I used for the guts of the book. I decorated my notebook front just like a card, using background papers from October Afternoon, velvet ribbon and dressed up buttons. I bound it all together using my Bind It All machine. You can see the inside of my book below, just simple, lined, 4" x 6" notecards.
And here's a shot of the back, using some leftover October Afternoon patterned paper. The base cardstock of the front and back covers are Papertrey Kraft cardstock with the edges inked in white ink.
For my fonts, I used Just Rite Stampers Brayton Font and rectangle wood stampers. Both of these sizes below come in one set so you get a good variety of font sizes. There's also a third size to round out the set. I used Versamagic Java ink to stamp my words. My circle image is cut out using a Spellbinder's Circle Die Template. I love that I always have just the right size of circle in my collection.
And here's my journal sitting by my notepad basket that I rejuvenated the other day with some stamped tags, using the same Brayton font.
You'll be seeing lots more organizational ideas from me.....I'm on a roll, baybee!

I started doing a computer book a few months ago. It was getting to hard to remember all the passwords. Of course yours is so cute. I just used a book from Michael's, I don't have a bind-it-all machine. I love organization and post info on my blog and love to read others suggestions. Looking forward to more. :)

I love this idea! I wa sooo tired of hunting thru stacks of post it notes just to find a password. I just made a little booklet for myself & I am so happy that everything's alphabetically organized & compact. Thank you so much for your inspiration! Happy New Year!

I love this idea. I reached right down into my drawer and got out some index cards and put them on my stamping table for my next visit there! Thanks for sharing your creativity!!!
