A Bucket List Book

Hi Everybody! Today I wanted to show you what I call a BUCKET LIST BOOK. I made a mini book of places I want to go in the United States with very minimal supplies. The paper for the cover is so colorful that it looks great as a stand alone. All I did to give it a little handmade touch is adhere a pennant from the Open Road collection to the cover, but you could adorn yours more if you like. 

Here is a peek of the inside. To see the rest of it and how I made it, check out the Crate Paper blog HERE!

Have a great day!

I'm Late!

Well I am a little late in posting this!! I started my new job this week and it has been a whirlwind of changes and excitement. I am pursuing my dream nurse practitioner job in cardiology and I am both scared and excited. I have bought books, organizational items, got a new bag, a lab coat with my name embroidered on it and I am set to go to learn inpatient cardiology. EEK!

With all that has been going on, I seem to have forgotten to post my card for Case Study! Oh boy! Here is my card.

Case Study 22nd

The card is based on this one:

To make this card I used the doily embossing folder from Crate Paper. It's pretty amazing :) I used gelatos and kind of white washed a white piece of paper in rows of the 4 colors that came in the pack and then die cut them with a PTI button bits die. I think the Hello die is from SSS. I used my friend Ceal's supplies. It's pretty cool to get to use friends stuff, all the awesomeness without the price tag! She gave me the gems too. Have I mentioned that she is a gem herself?

I am missing my Colorado friends. I hope you hug your friends extra tight next time you see them. Sometimes you take for granted that they will always be there to hang out, you know?
