Finally, a day to play!

I had posted one of these (done in That's Amore papers) at the end of March on the CTMH Consultant Bulletin Boards. (You can find it listed under Special Envelopes on my sidebar under Labels.) It got bumped back up to the front page yesterday and just looking at it made me want to create another one today. So this is the one I created this morning. I haven't stamped the sentiment yet. I used Tombo Mono Multi glue, which when left to dry before adhering, makes it repositionable. So the flower and the Nestabilities die cut label are not permanent yet. That will enable me pull off the flower parts to do my stamping when I'm ready to, then glue it all back in place permanently. Cool, huh? I will eventually stamp a sentiment like For You in the upper right corner of the flap of the holder, too. Hmmm... or I might just leave it... not sure yet.

What I used:

Penny Lane - Feeling Groovy "Pure Joy" Pure Posies Paper (My Mind's Eye)
Penny Lane - Feeling Groovy "Pure Joy" Large Accessories (MME)
Black and Colonial White CS (CTMH)
Black ink (CTMH)
6x6 clear page protector (other)
Coluzzle File Folder template (discontinued)
Nestabilities Labels One die (Spellbinders)
Black/white gingham ribbon (Walmart)
Pop dot (other)
1/4" Super Tape
Make-up sponge (other)
Self Adhesive Velcro Dot (Walmart sewing dept.)
Threading Water edge punch (Fiskars)
2" circle punch (Fiskars)
3/4" and 5/8" circle punches (EK Success)
2" paper flower (Prima)
Black brad and mini brads (CTMH)

I'm hoping to play all day, so I'll post as I go. I have another project that should only take me maybe 1/2 hour to finish up, so I'll tackle that one first. :)

Sooo adorable Vicki! I love this. My Mind's Eye is one of my favorite Papers when I got to my LSS. Love the idea of that repositionable adhesive too. Can't wait to see more results of your "play time"!
