Taylored Birthday Boxes

Hi!! I am so excited to show you this little project I did after I saw the Taylored Expressions Design Team make them. It is a birthday book using Taylors Binder Boxes (which will be back in stock next week at Taylored Expressions) and her Birthday Calender Download. I made 2 of  them as holiday gifts and then one of the girls I gave it to asked for two as gifts for her cousins. This is the only one I took a picture of unfortunately but I love the way it came out.  I was asked to make it in green so I pulled out some really cute DP from DCWV Nana's Nursery for Boy and Girl. My cardstock is all SU and for my center initial I used my Just Right Stamps. This is such a fun project and everyone has been loving them!! My pictures are out of order but the first one is the monogrammed stationery I made, the second pix is of the inside pages, next is the back of the binder and the last pix is of the front of the binder. I finished off the spine in the same dp too. Then I pack up the stationery with a big fun bow and put it in the box with a pen and viola. A great gift for a girlfriend. Ya gotta give this a try.

So we are expecting a huge blast of cold weather this weekend as I know most of you are experiencing also. I am going to go food shopping tomorrow and stock up the house and bundle up for the weekend in my craft room. What are your weekend plans? Keeping warm I hope!! Do you own a snuggie?? I know, I know, they seem so silly but o my I have to tell you that it was money well spent because it is soooo cozy!! I recommend it!!

On that cozy note, I am going to get some sleep for the night. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
