Don't forget...

I have a reminder book for birthdays and anniversaries and when Emma released this new die and stamp set in this latest release, I new I wanted to make another...maybe for a gift. 
This is what I came up with. I hope you like it.

I cut six pieces of chipboard, and twelve pieces of ivory cardstock from Paper Trey's nice and thick! Then I stamped each of the twelve with the new Journal It stamp set. I glued each of the stamped pieces to the front and back of the chipboard piece. I then used my Cinch to punch the holes at the top. I added the O-wire and crimped it closed.

Here is good look at the thickness of the book. I love how this turned out!

I added some of the 3D flowers using the die to cut them. I stamped them with the scipt stamp, inked the edges with distress ink, and then added some chunky glitter. Chose this sentiment cause isn't that what we are doing? Remembering important dates? I thought it fit well.

I also cut like four of each of these charms and glued them all together for good thickness. I inked them up and tied with some twine to one of the rings. I also added a piece of lace paper cut using a SVGCuts file for Battenburg those lace files!

Here is a look at the inside pages. Same is on the backside. Simply check the month, then on the right, add a name and their birth date or anniversary date. How cute is this way to remember. Stand it up on your desk and you have a quick visual for when cards need to go in the mail. I might make several of these to give for Christmas Stocking Stuffers.'s what you will need to re-create this.

There you have it....all the sets I used to make this adorable little book. Get out some of your supplies and pick what you have that would work with this. It's fun to make gift items and not just cards. Who wouldn't love to have one of these!?!? Happy Crafting!
