My DCWV And May Arts Ribbon Project And A Giveaway!

FINALLY!!  I can show you what I've been working on the past few weeks!!


I made a super cool address book!  It's actually an address book that houses pictures, plus has a separate area for a Christmas card list, and a birthday list.  Here's a video I did explaining the features and giving a closer look...



The whole book is made from DCWV's Snapshot Stack, and 4 different kinds of May Arts Ribbon.

So here's some highlights:

The front cover of the book opens up and then folds out again to reveal a Christmas card list.  I put lots of pages in there so that it will work for years to come.  I also threw in a couple of Christmas pics for good measure!




The middle portion of the book is actually the address portion.  To give it a little more personality, I added pics of some of the people in my book.  This, of course, is my gorgeous daughter!!  I cut out "photo frames" from the stack to put throughout the pages and then place pictures on the frames.  I fussy cut out the talk bubbles on some of the pages, and that's where I'll put each person's name, address and phone number.



For people I don't have pics of, I just added in some extra tabs for their info


The back cover also folds out into a birthday list.  Each page has a month and each of the days on it...1-15 on the front and 16- the end of the month on the back.  So, since my son's birthday is November 20th, I would go to the November page and write his name on line 20, and add in the year of birth if I want to keep track of  his age (and trust me, the older he gets, the older I get, so I really don't want to keep track...haha!)



Behind the birthday list is a pocket to hold already made birthday cards I'll need to send out for the month.  I also put a pocket in the front of the book for Christmas cards.


Here's a few close ups...ribbon embellishment on the front cover


Built in bookmarkswith beads to give them weight. There are three bookmarks...one for the Christmas list, one for the address book, and one for the birthday list.



I hope you like my address book as much as I do!  To go see all the projects, you can go to the DCWV blog to see the first half, and then the May Arts Ribbon Blog to see the other half.  The projects are all GORGEOUS, and it's really fun to see what 25 different people can make with the same supplies!

DCWV and May Arts are also having a Snapshot stack GIVEAWAY just for commenting!  Go check it out!!

Thanks for looking!
