Hello again,

Today I played with the Designer Series Paper from the Share What You Love Suite again.  But this time I partnered it with the Pretty Park Framelits and the coordinating stamp set Sitting Pretty.

The first thing I made was this gatefold card and belly band.  If you are not familiar with belly bands they are a band that you slip on and off your project to keep it closed.  This belly band is made using the Old Olive dsp from the pack.   For this card, I embellished the band instead of the front of the card.  I used the park bench, the bird a cute heart and another piece of coordinating dsp from the pack.  The dsp that has the script on it happens to be my favorite.

See this is how the card looks when you slip off the band.  The card opens like a gate to reveal your sentiment and message.

After I was done was making the card I covered a little notebook and made another belly band.  I just love it.  I need to make another one because I want one for myself.


This is the back of the notebook.  I just can’t believe that all of the designs in this pack flow together so nicely.

I used Fresh Fig cardstock to cut out the park bench.  I love love love that color.

Here is the front of the notebook with the bellyband on.  The little bird and heart sitting on the bench are just so sweet.  I’m thrilled with these framelits.  One of the reasons I love them so much is that there are three hearts in the set.  Now if I need multiple hearts I can make three at a time.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the corner rounder punch.  It’s new too.  I used it to make the rounded corner on the dsp.  With the corners rounded the paper fits the book perfectly.

You all have a great weekend.  Thank you for stopping by.  I love your visits and love your comments even more!
