More Christmas Crafting

These are another popular craft show item. I use reclaimed thin cardboard for my covers (from paper packs, etc.) so they are fairly inexpensive to make. I really have a lot of fun making these. (Well, maybe not so much fun punching all the paper for the insides pages...)

Here are some holiday ones:

At one point, I was apparently madly in love with this paper and must've bought every sheet HL or Michaels had. I have quite a thick stack of it, so most of my Christmas notepads will have this paper. Good thing it works with a variety of images! The snowman on the left is a retired SU! set and the bird is from a current TAC Christmas set.

And here are some "everyday" notepads:


The little girl with the bird is "Fly Free" is a Leanne Ellis image from Funkykits. It's just too cute and is one of my favorite stamps. The girl on the right is an Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm that my friend, Diana, let me borrow a while ago.

If, like me, you always have trouble remembering what order to put your covers in before you bind them, check out this great tutorial: Bind-It-All Basics Part 2. Great for newbies or those of us who haven't used our Bind It All quite so recently...
