Birthday Booklet for My Hubby

birthday booklet 1

 This is an update from my post on Friday, which was my hubby's birthday! I had to make a project for my Design Team sample for As You See It Challenges and this week's challenge happened to be a Speed Challenge, which meant I had to finish in 10 minutes or less.

I had decided to use the characteristics of this Ready to Ride Specialty Designer Series Paper to make a folded booklet and it didn't leave me much time to embellish it as much as I wanted to for my sweetheart.


Here's the way a folded booklet is made:


In my rush to complete my project in 10 min. I don't think I completed the fold correctly because I was missing two pages, but that ended up being a good thing because I would never have been able to decorate them in time.

Here are the completed pages with the pre-made die cuts that come with the He's the Man Specialty Designer Series Paper. I also decided to close the booklet using the Early Espresso Faux Suede Ribbon tied in a square knot on the front. It slips off easily.

Front cover with some He's the Man DSP glued on and the Early Espresso cardstock on the spine.

This is the 2nd & 3rd page! So cool how the flames of Ready to Ride work with the BBQ die cuts from He's the Man. Also the road page has some die cuts that work with it as well.

The adhesive-backed studs from the Ready to Ride suite decorate the tire and leathers on this page.

I added a panel from the die cuts to write my greeting on it!

The back cover is also covered with He's the Man DSP and has a vintage car theme!
colour refresh

It's official. There will be a complete Colour Refresh of all the colour families in the new 2023/24 Annual Catalogue in May! Who knows what colours will stay and what colours will go? None of us! Not until Mar. 29th at least. And then the retiring colours will vanish within days as everyone hoards their favourites! If you have a favourite, better make sure you get some cardstock and a refill and maybe some Stampin' Blends before all heck breaks loose! Some of the colour family combos are already out of stock!! Just warning you! And don't forget the 2021-2023 In Colours are also retiring!...Maybe!
