I tried my hand at making one today and had so much fun! I did realize that I need some new adhesive choices though, because I used sticky tabs and boy did it take me FOREVER to put all those pages together and all the papers on the bags, lol. I'm so happy with how it turned out though so I don't mind. Here are some pics...

This first layout is about Emily. It's just one of those on-a-whim kind of pictures but she was so "adorable" that I knew I had to scrap it! I really love the color combination...
Supplies: K&Company Paper Pad - Greenhouse by Carolyn Gavin; Making Memories Sanding Block; Fiskars Border Punch - Scallop; Basic Grey Alpha Sticker Letters - Sugared (Inked); Scenic Route Chipboard Hearts (used as a template)
The second layout is about my sweet Maddie. She's only 9 months old (where has the time gone?!?) in this picture. She was sitting there playing with her toys one minute, and the next time I looked over, she was fast asleep! Of course I had to grab my camera before I put her in the crib, lol... ;)
Supplies: K&Company Paper Pad - Wild Raspberry; Cosmo Cricket Paper - Honey Pie; Lasting Impressions Rub-Ons
This last one has both of my sweeties on it. I got some really amazing pictures of them one day when we were over at Mark's Nanny's house. She grows alot of flowers and the girls really seemed to enjoy walking around and smelling them all...

I printed out the pages and made the book just like the first one I did (see the post here for pics and a link to Kristina's blog for directions), and once that was done, I got started on the inside...
I decided that I would use the portrait boxes (in the front) for my embossing folders and the landscape boxes (in the back) for my dies. After measuring them, I realized that a piece of cardstock 2" by 1 1/2" would fit perfectly inside the boxes. I cut enough pieces for all of my embossing folders, as well as a few for the borders that I have (cut to 2" by 3/4"), and after running them through my Cuttlebug, I simply attached them all to the book. I did the same with my dies, and also the die/embossing combos that I have.
So if you're looking for a way to keep up with some supplies you've got, this could be a perfect solution for you! I'm thinking about making another one for ink colors and also some stamps I have in CD cases. I can see sooooo many possibilities with it.

Well, I was sitting here trying to think of a way I could try it out today (no acetate sheets yet)and an idea popped into my head. A few weeks ago, I went through and put a bunch of my single clear stamps into CD cases. A few of these were the individual word stamps that are in Heidi Swapp's handwriting. They come in a plastic package, stuck to a piece of acetate that has the word written on it. When I took the stamps out of the package, I kept those words thinking I could use them for something later on. Boy, am I happy that I did!
I pulled them out and chose a word, grabbed my paper piercer, and went to work piercing the holes. Next I cut down a piece of paper to the size I wanted it, held the acetate in place over it, and once again pierced the holes, but this time through the acetate to the paper. After that, I stitched the word. It worked great!! Here's a picture of the acetate and also the stitched word...
I have 3 more of the Heidi Swapp words and also a few other designs that might work for this, so I can't wait to try them out. I'm also definitely going to get some acetate sheets so that I can try Melissa's idea.
You should try it too! ;)
