Let's get organized!



I am the world's worst birthday remember-er! I have such good intentions, but then three days after that special someone's birthday has come and gone I usually have that 'light bulb' moment! So, when I stumbled on Beate's Card Organizer on SCS I was so excited to make it! Each month has a pocket to hold birthday cards and lines to jot down all of the birthdays you need to remember! Too cool! I found the tutorial on SCS here http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ee/index.php/resources/tutorials/card_organizer/
I will be giving this one to my sis-in-law as a birthday gift and making another for myself later! The pages are made from 6 12 x 12 sheets of card stock and then the two covers. I used my book binder (a must when you home school!) to bind the whole thing together! Viola'! : )

Recipe:
Stamps: SU! Baroque Motifs (Love this set!!)
Paper: Neutrals from Michaels, SU! Brilliant Blue and River Rock
Ink: River Rock, Wild Wasabi, Not quite Navy and Ballet Blue
Extras: Gold Brads, Ticket Punch, Baubles from Michael's Dollar bins
Techniques: Paper Piercing

CUTE! TRYING to keep organized is always one of my priorities, and I'm usually not too good at keeping up with it! Oh well!

Wow, that is awesome. I will have to give this a try. Will be perfect for anniversaries too since everyone I know is now getting married :D

This turned out gorgeous! Great job! This might be too ambitious for me - I'm working on just organizing with index tabs inside a tin lunch box. (When I say "working on" I mean, I've thought about, but haven't started yet! LOL)

Wow! This is such a neat idea. I have a memory like a wet paper bag. Gotta make one; thanks so much for sharing this! :0) Mel
