Card Keeper-continued

Hello Cardz TV Gallery Friends! Brenda here from Friends Craftin with Friends and I'm here to show you the completed, well except for a few touches here and there, card book I made to organize all my cards in so I can get them mailed off in a timely fashion. I bound my book with my Cinch. Now since it was for me, I used 3 separate smaller o wires that I had clipped off other projects to bind my book. I hate to waste or throw away good things that can still be used. lol  When I make another one I won't do that, but for myself it was ok. My wires also got out of shape because it was different wires, but that's ok too because it is mine. Please note this is going to be pic heavy. We will start with the front cover. I used chipboard and placed my pattern paper on it.  I used DCWV Celebration paper pad for my front and back covers. Can you spot my mistake?? Yes, don't ask me what I was thinking, but I put my apostrophe between the "d & a" instead of the "a & s". LOL I saw it when I was writing up this post, so I will fix that pronto! Isn't the vintage kids so cute?  I though this was the perfect paper for my cover. 

For my "date, name & event" paper, I just made this in Microsoft word and printed out on light weight cardstock. I also add some mitten and skate die cuts. Still need some sentiments on my strip for this month.

Here I used some die cut hearts and a hat and clover.

April has a chocolate bunny and some boots since it tends to be rainy in April. May has some cute daisies.

And from June to Dec. I need some die cuts yet. Will add them later. 

I just love how my card keeper turned out and plan on making some for gifts. The pockets will hold quite a few cards and now all I have to do is get them made and in their correct months! Then I can turn to that month and I will be ready to just put the card in the mail. I am considering putting a pocket on the inside of the front cover to hold stamps and labels for the envelopes. I hope I've inspired you to use Card TV stamps in a different way other than cards. Below is a list of all the Card TV stamps that I used and you can get them here. I want to thank all our viewers to visiting and leaving comments, this blog would not be here if not for all our viewers. We so appreciate you all!!! Crafty hugs, Brenda
