Happy Wednesday and welcome to Day 3 of the Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks.  Today we’re previewing 2 full stamp sets and 1 mini set that are all about tags, labels, tabs, journals and notebooks for the holidays.  The sets I’m working with today are Take Note Holidays and Keeping Tabs.  Take Note Holidays is a continuation of the Take Note set and coordinates with the same 3 Taylored Dies.  For both of my projects today I used the Take Note Frame 3 die.

First I have a cute little 4.25″ square card using Karen’s Giron’s Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC87).  It was the perfect layout to highlight this little Santa checking his list!

Papers and ribbon are from the Snow Day Project Pantry card kit that will be available Thursday along with the stamps.  The snowflake frame from Take Note Holidays was stamped in SU Kiwi Kiss ink and die cut.  Santa was stamped, colored with copics, cut out and popped up on foam tape.  His suit is embellished with white liquid applique and his beard is covered in Starfire glitter applied with a Quickie Glue pen.

My next project is a Christmas Organizer or what I refer to as my Santa Journal.  These make wonderful gifts – especially if you have friends who really love the Christmas season.  I made one of these from a compostition book a few years ago when I was in the Dirty Dozen at SCS, so I put in a few requests while these sets were in the works.  I just love the options we have here for both labels and for tabs.

I started with the 6×6 Cinch Book Boards and covered them (both sides) with papers from the Project Pantry kit.  The front was decorated simply with a frame and words from Take Note Holidays along with a snowflake die cut (new TE die also) and a border sticker and ribbon from the kit. Corners were rounded with the Corner Chomper.

I cut notebook filler paper to 6 x 5.5 and made 4 dividers for my book from white cardboard (saved from designer paper packs.)

Each divider has a tab made with the Keeping Tabs set and the new Tab die.  My 4 sections are: To do, Gifts, Cards, Menu.  I also stamped the words repeatedly down the side of each divider next to a strip of dp. It’s so awesome to have all the little words right there available and not be scrambling to work with some tiny little alphabet as I have done in the past for projects such as this.

 In the back I added a divider with a square envelope adhered to it to keep Christmas shopping receipts all corraled in one place.

Everything was put together with my Cinch Machine.  Boy oh boy am I ever loving that Cinch!  So fun and easy to use.  This is quite an easy project to put together.  If you don’t have any type of binding machine (and I do receommend you get a Cinch), you could always take these books to an office supply store’s printing counter to have them bound for you.  Or you could use a composition book for a similar effect.

Tip: When putting together a tabbed book like this one, cut your pages 1/2″ smaller in width that your covers. This keeps your tabs inside the covers and saves wear and tear on them.

  • On a personal note I just want to say how blessed I am to have so many wonderful friends in my life!  My niece is getting married on Friday and last night we finished her favors and centerpieces (we had 2 previous sessions for invitations, thank you notes, escort cards, etc.).  I put a last minute call out just the night before to see if anyone would be available to come help tie bows and such and I was overwhelmed at the response.  I had 6 friends show up to help.  With the 8 of us we finished in less than an hour and a half what would have taken Kira and I alone late into the night to do.  Many hands make light work.  Thank you ladies from the bottom of my heart!  And I promise to share photos next week of all the projects we’ve done for the wedding.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you enjoy the hop today and remember that everything we’ve been showing you this week will be available at 8am PST on Thursday!
