PTI February Blog Hop
This month's Blog Hop is designated as: Design Team Appreciation Day! Nichole wrote "Your challenge is to go through the Design Team gallery or any of the Design Team Members' blogs and find a project that is especially inspirational to you! Then recreate the project with your own spin, making it unique!"
Well this was not easy. First I got distracted by all the beautiful work and forgot what I was looking for. I was amazed while browsing their blogs by how many photos had been removed for publication. What a super talented group! Then when I did decide on a project, it really encompasses five members of the team. Credit for the inspiration must go to Dawn MacVey.
The adorable library card was from Heather Nichols in her mini Valentine book. The mini composition book project was by Lisa Johnson. And of course credit to Michelle Wooderson for her notebooks and stamp set Take Note. Then we have Debbie Olson's project for the Take note reveal. So I really appreciate all of them for this project.
This project has been rolling around in my head since I got the set back in October. This is for our Granddaughter to keep track of books she wants. If she reads one, she can cross it out. I've bought several duplicates recently and maybe this will help. Heather's library cards come four to a sheet. So I tucked the other three in a pocket inside the front cover. She can make me a list so I know what to buy.
The little pen has purple, pink, blue & green stars on it, so I stamped the star outline from Sign Language in Smokey Shadow on the Plum Pudding for the background. It disappeared in the photo (update: it disappeared completely!). Books to Read from Take Note is stamped in Fresh Snow on Raspberry Fizz. Rhinestone stars are by Recollections (Michaels). Ribbon by American Crafts. Scalloped Circle is by Spellbinders Nestabilities.
Hope you enjoyed your stop. Thanks for hopping by.
