It's Monday once again and even a new month has arrived. Hopefully June will bring lots of great weather and sunshine! Well okay, enough about the weather and lets move on to the new challenge from Simon Says Stamp and Show. The theme of this week is the S is for ... You can decide what the S stands for yourself. Such as stars, simple, shabby, sunshine, stripes, spray, stickers, stamps, etc. As long as it starts with an S you're good to go. Please let us know what S word you've used.
My S is for ... Sannie's Schedule. In otherwords my calendar. I find myself pretty organized, the only thing is that I write everything down on little notes, and sometimes I loose one or two of them... So I thought it will be a good idea to make a binder with my schedule in it. Here I can keep all my creative things in need to do. Such as keeping the birthdays and therefor a reminder that I need to make a birthday card for that person but also the challenges for Simon Says Stamp and Show I need to do. This way I keep my thing to do in order.
I always like to make my own binders and albums. Generally I use canvas boards for them. These are really sturdy and ideal as a cover. They are available in different sizes and I make my album or binder at the size I can get. It's almost undoable to make them another size. For spine I use 1mm thick cardboard which I cut to the size I need and paste multiple layers on top of eachother. Then I cover all the canvas boards panels with Kraft paper and get inky with lots of different stamps. All with black ink. Then I glued the pieces together and it was time to decorate the cover.
Well how will I do the binding for the pages? Let's see. The other day I saw a very nice binding technique on the blog of Tammy Tutterow that I wanted to try. Perfect for my schedule!
