When every we go to meetings we usually get to make fun projects and Brandi’s meeting was no exception.  We made this fun Passion Frame.live-with-passion-sign

It was really pretty easy to make.  The back is made with our small on board book basics to give it plenty of structure.  This would make a fun gift for a friend or neighbor.  I used this layout idea for the front cover of my paper bag scrapbook.  One of the things I love about this is how we tied the ribbon.  We folded the ribbon in half then pushed the folded end through and pulled the ends through the loop we pushed through.  Then we tied the loose ends together at the top.  I like the nice finished look that it adds.

My Sister and I had a Game Night Friday night.  She sales Simply Fun which fun family games.  We thought it would be fun to use the new game night stamps and have a combo party.  If you would be interested in more information about her games you can check out her website at www.brigetudy.simplyfun.com.

game-night-folder-closedI wanted to create a fun project that would go along with the theme.  I found this folder created by Wendy Knowles in our awesome group.  I decided to give it a try.  Her project was all covered with the DSP, but I didn’t have enough so I decided to try it with paper that I stamped on.  She covered a file folder.

game-night-folder-openI found that this was a little more difficult with the solid paper verses the DSP and it was hard to fold and not have it bubble.  I still think that it turned out cute, but was more time consuming than I wanted for the party so I decided I needed to simplify.

game-night-scores-closedThis is the project I came up with.  It is really quite fast and easy.  It’s just one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper folded around the note pad.  Then I added the DSP and some stamped paper.  I still added the cute black strip in the front like she had.  I used a crimped paper inbetween to give it a little more texture.  I decided I didn’t want to tie the bow everytime we used it so I put the stampin’ demimentionals  on the bottom part of the black tag only so I could slide the ribbon off the top.

game-night-scores-openInside Wendy had attached the notebook with sticky strip but I wanted to be able to replace it with out tearing my book so I decided to put a strip of DSP all the way across.  I only glued it down on one side.  Where the note book is I placed it in-between the card board back and the last sheet of paper.  Then I put sticky strip on each side of it.  This way I cold slip the note book out and put a new one in.

We love to play games with my family and I really loved having a way to keep score.  There is a little ribbon loop on the front that you can keep a pencil in.  This way we can keep this with all the games and then when we want to play we don’t have to find a notebook a paper.  Sometimes it’s also fun to see who won last time so it’s nice to have it all in one place.

birthday-wishes-flowersThis gorgeous card is another beautiful project created by my talented up-line Mindy.  This was one of the cards from our shoebox swap a couple of weeks ago.

I love how she used the glitter to make the flowers really stand out.  One of my other favorite about this card is kind of hard to see, but down at the bottom we used the new Eyelet Border Punch just once and then put paper behind it.  I really loved this look.
