Love Pocket Book...

I was looking at my favorite blogs this morning and when I saw what Ashley had created, I knew I wanted to make one. She made this super fun Christmas-y Pocket is so cute! She got the directions HERE and they really are super easy to follow. The only difference is that I don't have a Bind-it-All, so I made a spine like Ashley's. The book itself is made from ONE piece of 12x12 DSP. It is such a fun mini book. You could use it for so many things, but I liked the idea I saw and thought it would be a fun Valentines gift for a grandma with pictures of her favorite things...her grandkids. :) Here is a pic of the book all opened up.

I had a lot of fun making this, and I can see so many possibilities with it. Just think, a little birthday book with notes from each guest, a coupon book for your hubby with all the little tags a different thing he can turn in and redeem from you. Hmm, I am thinking I know what to give my hubby for Valentines day. :)

What I used:
Stamps: Love You Much, Goody Goody Gumdrops
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Candy Lane DSP, White Gel Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Sponge Daubers, Round Tab Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Silver Brads, Dimensionals
