I've Got It 'Covered'! Part 2

Okay, I admit it, I AM HOOKED!  I love covering these notebooks!  I really like the composition books too, but these small notebooks have quickly become my favorite.  In terms of flexibility and creativity- the sky is the limit- you can make just about anything work!  And you can put your own spin on them too!  

Cool Birthdays

Birthday Ambassador duty has called once again!  Well, really it's called several times the last two months- I just keep forgetting to take pics of the cards! lol!  But I *am* trying to get better about that- and here's the proof!  

This first card features a cut from the 'Just Because Cards' Cricut cartridge.  I wanted to do something clean and simple for this co-worker and highlighting this sundae on a 6X6 square card seemed like a great design.  It turned out a bit different than I had imagined, but I better than I was picturing!  The dotted paper really adds something to the card, dontcha think?!  I gave the card some dimension by popping the sundae up on some foam squares.  The inside reads "best wishes for a sweet birthday- with a cherry on top!"  I hope she likes it!

This card is for a co-worker that I don't know really well, but I was told by one of my 'ambassador connections' (lol), that she *loves* the beach.  At first I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, but after a quick trip to Michael's, where I found this awesome flip-flop paper by My Mind's Eye called Totally Flippable.  My intention was to simply feature the flops on the paper and maybe add a few embellishments.  But the Just Because Cards cart came in handy yet again when I noticed this refreshing (lol) glass of lemonade!  Some vellum and a few Fiskar's punches later- this card was born!!  I love this entire look and I alllmost said I was keeping this one!  But in the end I wished her a birthday with 'sand, sun, and lots of fun'! 

Duty is going to call at least twice more this month, and I can't wait to see what's to come!  I'll be sure to share!

I've Got It 'Covered'!

Hi Everybody!  Wow- it's been a *long* while since I've posted!  These last few months have been super packed with activity: work has been a little nuts and I've been able to squeeze a project in here and there- but blogging has been on the back burner...  Things are evening out now and I have my new 'favorite' project of the moment that I wanted to share!
