“Stuff” Binder

We have so much “stuff” coming up in the next few months that my brain is having a hard time keeping up with schedules, to dos, and crafty ideas popping into my head! Things like traveling to conferences with my hubby, the wedding of my oldest goddaughter, Christmas shopping and crafting, and traveling for the holidays ~ not to mention just the day to day “stuff”!! I know your life is just as crazy!!!!

So I decided to try to get a little organized. I’m a list maker ~ there is something so satisfying in being able to cross off a completed task. And, of course, a simple notebook just won’t do 🙂

I found this pretty, coral-colored, mini binder at Target along with plastic divider tabs, and paper to fit. Although it was a great color, it needed a little “something”. After a bit of stamping and some patterned paper, this is the result…

The fun letters are from an alphabet set by Technique Tuesday. The flower stamp and the punches to match are from Stampin’ Up. I stamped the flower twice in coral ink and once in turquoise ink, then punched out each section and layered them together. “Stuff” is stamped in coral ink on white card stock and then the edges of the panel are sponged with the same ink. I cut the chevron paper to fit inside the pocket on the front of the binder, attached a strip of polka dot paper, and then attached the stamped images. Slip the finished piece into the pocket and you have a cute binder to help you stay organized!

Now, if I can just remember to write everything down…

Thanks for stopping by,

Anita
