Last weekend, I attended a fantastic two-day stamping event for demonstrators, hosted by #11 demonstrator, Ronda Wade. It was called Creative Convention, and was, in many ways, even better than the real Stampin' Up! Convention because it was more intimate. I went with some of my team, Darla Eigenschink, Jodi Geers and Nicole Dodane, and we had so much fun!
About 80 demonstrators attended, and we got to hear top demonstrators like #2 Canadian demonstrator Maggie Patterson and #13 demonstrator Laurie Krause present (and they were amazing!). Plus, there were technique & project demonstrations, displays of sample projects, and LOTS of super make & takes! Ronda put on a fabulous event! We left there impressed, motivated, and overflowing with tips and ideas to make our businesses even better! Woohoo!
One of the projects that we created was what I'm calling Kris Kringle's Wish List Notebook!
It's a cute little notebook that you could use to keep your Christmas Wish List notes while shopping. Or, it could easily be a cute mini scrapbook album instead!
The cover was a 6×12" piece of chipboard (backing from any Designer Series Paper pack), that was covered on both sides with Frostwood Lodge DSP.
The inside cover used the birch bark style paper.
TIPS: Use a Glue Stick to adhere the paper to the chipboard and fold all pieces in half before attaching for a better fit. You may need to trim the ends if they don't fit exactly. If you wait to fold after adhering, you may get bubbling and wrinkling of your paper.
The book is made with two 5×11" pieces of Whisper White card stock folded in half, then tied to the cover.
We punched two holes through the card stock and cover with the Crop-A-Dile, then used Cherry Cobbler Quilted Ribbon to tie everything together.
You could decorate the inside with Christmas Lodge stamps or more Frostwood paper to make it more of a photo album.
The back is just as cute as the front!
