Envelope Abum

Learned how to make a great looking envelope album. I watched Laura on Following the Paper Trail on you tube. Took all day to complete it but it turned out wonderful. I used 6 envelopes and the tags are made from cereal boxes. I glued 2 pieces together from the cereal box and then covered both sides with paper. The cover part is made from chipboard. I used the famous tag punch again from Stampin Up and I also use the scallop punch for the pockets that hold the tags. Sorry :( I forgot to take a close up. I love the look. Inked it all the way around and added some goodies and VIOLA!!!
Thanks for looking !!!

Started Couponing Again

Well I was totally a slacker before. Well maybe not. I had a coupon organizer for my coupons but I seemed to be flipping through a stack of paper item coupons for the right one that was on sale at the store. I really didn't search online verygood at how to keep up with the coupons as well as how to make a list of things to shop for. Keep in mind this will be changing soon. I have decide to build up my coupon stash again. But this time organize it to start and then see how it goes. I know it can be done. I personally don't have 6 hours a day or 40 hours a week to shop around for deals on the computer. I am a full time student. Well I got me a binder and the baseball card keepers that lots have been going crazy about. I had a few coupons clipped and printed. I haven't even gotten the circulars form the Atlanta Journal yet. Monday is coming though. Well I sat down and REALLY organized those coupons. I made divider tabs and all sorts of cool things to keep me going this time. Well after practically all day of clipping, printing, sorting and organizing this is the results. I am seriously pleased to.

Thank goodness for the heavy cardstock in the front of the card organizers. I punched out the tab divider things with a punch from Stampin Up. Thanks Katie Burke for that. I am slowly getting coupons in it.. Look out other couponers I am in the race running with ya now. :) Seriously it will be a while before I am full speed.

So hey come join me and help me learn more..

Have a great day!!
