Address Book

I'm getting a head start on my stocking stuffers! I made this address book for my MIL who's favorite color is of course BLUE! All I did to make this was take a plain sheet of chipboard and cut it into two 3.5x5.5 rectangles. I covered both sides with coordinating paper from SU's double sided DSP-porcelain print. I know some people use modgpodge to cover their chipboard, but I found that using my tombo mono-multi works just as good and is a lot less messy! For the front I punched the large photo corner from blue bayou card stock, and then I punched the scalloped circle from the procelain prints paper. The main image is a 13/8 cicle punch of whisper white cs. I stamped the letter "v" from my whimsical alpha lower in blue bayou and then sponged river rock and certainly celery around it. The ribbon on the front and around the coils are SU! blue bayou double stitched and certainly celery narrow organdy. Well now I have to make my hr drive to biological chemistry (what fun!)

Very nicely done. I also use mono multi on these and love the results. TFS; love the layout.

Thanks for the idea. I think mine will be THE gift, not just a stocking stuffer =:}
