May Challenge - Yay!

I decided to make a notebook for this challenge.  No patterned papers were used - well, that weren't "created"..lol.  This notebook is for my sweet sister-in-law.  I won't bore you with the details here.  You can find it on my blog.  http://craftingtokeepmysanity.blogspot.com/2010/05/papertrey-pixies-may-challenge.html


Thank you for hosting this challenge, Teresa! Love it!

  7. I could have sworn I commented on this fab folder (okay, notebook, but folder sounded better, lol), but I don't see it. So . . . I love it and the patterned papers look absolutely "real" to me--you know what I mean, pre-printed. Great job! Also, you asked me a question on buttons going through the mail, and I haven't gotten back to you (sorry!). My experience has been, as long as I put extra postage on the envelope (I took my typical sizes down to the P.O. and asked how much postage for handmade cards), and stamp, "Please Hand Cancel" on them front and back . . . I can send anything through the mail. Buttons, rhinestones, glitter, flowers, chipboard, you name it, it's all gone through with no problems. I only once got a card back, from Mexico. The envelope was torn and dirty, and stamped all over with requests, in Spanish, for 99 cents postage (which was already on the envelope--it was so weird). BUT, inside, the card was pristine, with rhinestones, buttons and ribbon still on it! So I say, go for it!

  8. Another lovely project, Lorraine. I usually make my sister-in-law a year's worth of cards for her birthday but maybe this year I'll include a jazzy notebook, too. Thanks for sharing.
