Do you blog? Submit to publications? Hold stamp camps? Order new product from time to time? (Okay, I know that last one included you! LOL!) Well, if you do then I have a fun little project for you. I made these fun Product Lists to keep track of stamping related lists. I am looking at my list right now so that I'll know what products to list in my supply list for you at the end of this post. I've also used it to list products for pub calls that I've made so I can have the information handy when I type up a submission. I also keep an ongoing page for supply *refills* that I need to purchase. It's just the right size too. If you look at the last photo, you'll see the inside of the notebook. I took junior size notepads to a printing shop and asked them to chop them in half. They charge by the cut, so ask them to stack up as many as they can. Sometimes the cuts aren't perfectly straight but it doesn't bother me.
To decorate the front of the notebook, I used Karen Lockhart's pencil jar stamp(a must have to send cards to all my creative friends). I colored in the image with my new favorite Copic markers. Zoom in on the detail girls, it's outstanding. They color in wonderfully and dry with no lines and the finish almost looks chalk like. Ellen will be carrying these soon so be sure to check her website listed at the right. (Go to her blog too for more exciting announcements to come, you are gonna freak!) To finish up the front, I used a retired SU! alphabet and some new SU! Classic inks(Blue Bayou, River Rock, and Soft Sky)to spell out *Product Lists*. The *certified* circle is from SU!'s Stamp of Authenticity set. I also added some My Mind's Eye fun paper for the background (available at Eclectic Paperie). A solid piece of card stock forms the notebook cover (like a book that wraps around 3 sides)
Here's the inside photo of the half notepad, of which I finished off the top with a scrap of MME patterned paper. The back has a SU! *stamped by* image so that I can sign my name when I give away some of these. I hope you try these...even if you don't get the 1/2 size books, you can always do a full size. I just love that it's skinny and doesn't take up much space.
Supply List: Lockhart stamp and Copic Markers (coming soon) from Ellen's store. My Mind's Paper from Eclectic Paperie. Stampin' Up! for word stamps and alphabet. Ribbon from Martha Stewart available at Michael's. Loopy brad from my stash. Bazzill textured card stock for the 3 sided notebook binding.
