Hello everyone! It’s Michelle here today and I am so excited to be posting. It’s my first solo post of 2014 and my first project for ABNH for 2014! I’m so happy to be back! This year I am going to be doing “home decor/altered items/things around the house” projects on the 23rd of every month (I know we are off a couple days this month… but it’s ok). If you have any suggestions for items you would like to see, techniques etc. please don’t hesitate to ask. I am always open to a challenge!
Today I have something small, simple and something all of us can use!!!! It’s a password book for all those online passwords that you have stuck on little sticky notes all over your desk! I got so tired of digging through sticky notes I decided to create a book for myself. My daughter loved mine so much she asked me to make her one too. That is what I am sharing with you today.
Here is the cover and the inside of my book:
My tags were cut using the Silhouette Machine, a Tag Template from the Silhouette Store, cardstock and really old patterned paper by My Mind’s Eye. I also die cut the letters and covered them in glossy accents. The typewriter is from Paper Smooches.
The tag that you write on is a printable. They come on a full sheet with 8 per sheet when you print. I just cut them apart. The link is at the bottom of this post. You just fill in the pertinent information and you always have it on hand. Goodbye sticky note covered desk!
For my daughter’s I did it a little different. She wanted stamps (love her!) instead of patterned paper. I let her pull all the stamps she wanted. I stamped them all with Hero Arts black ink and colored them in with Prismacolor pencils. Of course, you could use Copics. 🙂
You will need tags. I used one tag as a template and fit as many on a sheet of Neenah Solar White Paper as I could. I believe I got 6 per sheet. I used Hero Arts Critters, Lawn Fawn Critters and some Paper Smooches too. This part was a lot of fun!
I then stamped the tags front and back with all the fun patterns that she chose. I tried to use my brightest colors. The new Hero Arts Ultra Pink is showcased here along with Simon Says Stamps Sunshine Yellow. Aren’t the colors AMAZING? Love them.
My girl is a Pool color girl so there is LOTS of Pool in this batch. I added on some of the fun shapes that I colored or stamped onto the back with pop dots. Seeing it now, on the screen, I think I will add some fun quotes to go with them too. Really there are no rules you can do whatever you want. You could even use tags that you have tried techniques on etc. The possibilities are endless!!
I stamped the front of the cards too and adhered the printables for her. I have a ton of extras printed so that when we run out of tags we can simply create more. It’s so fast and easy to put them together.
