Sorry, no tutorial today. But I do have a project to share.
Well yesterday I took a look at my “to do” list and seen this project that has been on the list for, oh, about 6 months, lol. So instead of carrying it forward once again to my new to do list I actually sat down and went to work. I purchased this rolodex at an office supply store, on sale, of course and decided to turn it into a birthday reminder. I created a scene for each month, starting out by cutting 12 (one for each month) index card die cuts out of Whisper White card stock using my Big Shot machine.
This project took me about 4 hours to complete. I tried to create each card in 15-20 minutes. Most came together in under 1o. If I didn’t time myself this project could have taken me forever to make, lol.
All Stamps, ink and accessories (other than Rolodex) by Stampin’ Up.
Since I don’t own stamps that have the names of the months on them, I computer generated them for use on my tabs.
When I completed a month I would stamp the totally tabs stamp over the month name using a coordinating color and then punch it out using my Tab punch.
Below are the scenes I created for each month. 🙂
There are index cards behind each month card with the birthdays for that month on them. Let’s hope this will help me get cards out on time. 🙂 I think I will pick another Rolodex and alter it too, only next time use it as an address Rolodex, novel idea, huh, lol.
May your day be filled with nothing but happiness.
