So as you may have noticed, I've started entering some contests with my artwork. Here's the latest one, a card sketch from Mojo Monday. I created it using Jeanette Lynton's Color Me Monday color choices for this week. I used some scraps from my scrap bin, and also the Snow Friends (D1244) stamp set. The paper scraps are from Perfect Day and Notebook, the reverse sides of the paper ( I love how the back side of the B&T Duos are monochromatic patterns, makes them very versatile...). If you have a card or layout from the same contests/challenges, feel free to post them in the comments. Thanks!

Now I have 16 all occasion cards in my stash, perfect for those last minute events.

I'm getting ready for the next class schedule, and I want to know what you want to do! There are so many choices for classes, and I'd like to customize them to fit with what you like to scrap or craft. Some ideas that I had are a paper cupcake gift card holder, a phone rolodex for your counter, layout workshops, or altered items. Let me know what you think, by responding to the posting, or emailing me at email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from you!

1. Lay out your textured cardstock strips so that they are textured side up, and the piece that has three scoring lines on it is in the middle.
2. Apply adhesive to the two end pieces of your middle strip (they are 2"x4" between the edge and the score line).
3. Attach your other two pieces of cardstock, textured side up, so that the edges meet the scoring line, and you have a 2" overlap on the bottom.
4. Accordion fold your long strip on the scoring lines.
5. Adhere the first and last square to itself, forming a heavier piece to be the front and back cover of the flip book.
6. Turn the strip so that the textured side is against your work surface. Your piece should form a mountain shape with three folds facing up. If it isn't like that, re-fold your accordion the opposite direction.
7. Apply adhesive to the bottom only of the middle two sections. This forms the pockets for the tabs.
8. Fold your book up so that it makes a book, with three folds on one side, and four on the other. Now is when you attach the ribbon to be the spine.
9. Rub the ribbon firmly to make sure the adhesive is secure, and slowly peel away from the paper. Lay your ribbon down on the work surface so that the adhesive is up.
10. Place the book on the ribbon so that there is about 1/4" on either side of the edge of your book. Press firmly on the ribbon to form the spine for your book. Cut of the excess on the ends.
11. Now adhere your front cover piece, remember it's a different dimension than all the other pieces.
12. Apply adhesive to your other seven pages, including the back page, and adhere them to the pages in your book.
13. Do the same for the tabs, adhering the white cardstock to the patterned paper.
14. Attach the file tabs to the top of the pocket inserts, and place your flower on one of the tabs.
15. Add photos (mine were 3-1/4" square) and journaling. Decide on a title, if you want, and enjoy!!
