Top Note Address Book

This little project I was working on is for Vicki, my co-worker who is moving back to AZ. We have all become quite attached to Vicki as she is truly one of a kind so, needless to say, we will miss her. I decided that I would give her a going away present that would assure no excuses for her not keeping in touch or forgetting birthdays!

I confess that not everything is Stampin' Up! but the Bazzil Basics papers I used were near dead-ringers for the new In Colors, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, and Dusty Durango, so I did use those ink colors, as well as Soft Suede (the new In Colors can be found on pg. 155 of the new 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog). I also used a pack of double-sided Carolyn Gavin designer paper from K & Company along with the coordinating rub-ons and colored rhinestones.

I had about a thousand blank index cards I had no idea what I was going to use them for. But I am so brilliant!! I printed out the "Name, address, etc." stuff on them and ran them through the Big Shot (pg. 194) using the Top Note die (pg. 198). I made the front and back covers with chip board and textured cardstock and used the K&Co. double-sided paper for the alphabet dividers, all using the Top Note die. I used the "Defining Alphabet" stamp set, as well as "Define Your Life" set (both found on pg. 150). For the little tabs on the dividers, I used clear window sheets (pg.158), also run through my Big Shot, using the Circles #2 die (pg. 202). I then put little alphabet rub-ons on each clear circle and attached them to the dividers. I love it!! Tell me what you think! (I apologize for the poor picture quality. I didn't have any daylight left to photograph outside because as usual, I waited until the very last minute to finish!) TFL!

I love this too, and such a coincidence I made a similar book with the top note! (I just haven't photographed mine yet!) Vicky will love it, and cherish it, and you, forever!
