Do You Have A Minute . . .

This post may be inspiration for your Graphic 45 Card Club Kit leftovers.

The ideas are designed to be completed in just a few minutes.


My friend Maria introduced me to these planners

and I've been hooked ever since.

With notes everywhere, I have paper clips etc everywhere

capturing ideas, don't forgets and everything in between.


Let It Bee

and leftovers from the Let It Bee Club Card Kit.


I chose to decorate a July page as that's when most of the bees

in our area are the busiest.

First, the page was covered almost all the way

from top to bottom and side-to-side.

Then a piece of leftover polka dot paper was 

adhered to a pocket.

Followed by fussy cutting of those gorgeous sunflowers.

The sunflowers were only adhere at the bottom

so I could use them as tuck behinds.


Added a divet (half a 2" circle punch) to the pocket

to make those notes easier to find.

A strip at the top of the page completes the look.


After cutting out some favorite images, 

I backed them with plain cardstock for my note taking.

Added them to the tuck-behind sunflowers and pocket

and in a few minutes my planner page is finished.

Do You Have A Minute . . .


Here's a super quick idea 

you might be able to use with your

Graphic 45 Alice's Tea Party

card kit club leftovers.

Book Marks!

They're flat on purpose so as not to distort your current read.

and pop it into your book.


For this one, I used a kraft knife to cut out the center of the frame

and replace it with my Lacey dog.


Add bows to stick out of the top of the book.

Can you imagine how delightful it would be

for a Grandma to receive one of these with her 

Grandchild's photo!

A precious addition to your greeting cards.

WOYWW . . .

"What's on your work desk Wednesday".


I can't get by without my glue bottle stand from

Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts,

even when it needs a bit of repair.

Clips hold it together while the glue is drying

but it still holds my glue bottle the way it should.


And working on a Graphic 45 mini-album with

Come One, Come All Collection.


Have a great week everyone!

Come One, Come All . . .


While waiting for some new product

I've been working on my

Graphic 45 Come One, Come All 


As we all do, I hoard Graphic 45 everything

and found these envelopes in my stash.

I wanted to glue these down to a page.

Problem is, I like the back as much as I like the front.

I'm cutting them apart, making hinges and using both sides.

Step 1: Cut off a sliver from the bottom of the envelope.


Step 2: I "round" the envelope to get a good look at

one of the side seams and then

cut along the side seam to open up the envelope.



Then cut down the other seam so you have a separate

back from the front.

Step 3: Cut off the envelope flap at the top of the 

"Timeless" tag.


Step 4: Create 3 seams for the front of the envelope.

One for each side and one for the bottom.

Attach 1/2 of each seam to the inside left, right and

bottom of the envelope front.


Note: I didn't make a gusset for my seams.

But if you want to "stuff" this envelope with goodies,

make sure you create a gusset.

Step 5: Attach the seams to the main page of your book.

Then attach the top fold-over to the page,

making sure the fold covers the front part of the

main envelope.


The above photo shows my envelope on the page

with my leftover Timeless tag.

Below is another page I did, using the same cuts

with the red envelope and the Timeless tag.


Super easy and fast to create!
