Hi Everyone!

It's time for our new challenge at Simply Create Too. Our theme this time is "Mother's Day/For a Female.  I made this trio of goodies for my mother.    The papers have been in my stash for over a year.

I made a Lapbook, a Starbook and of course a Flip Card.  Had a blast making it all.  Yep, used up more of my endless supply of stash.

I used a brand new Stampin' Up Framlits Circle Die to make my card.  It is so cool and easy to use.  Patty Bennett has a great video for it here.  The die really took all the stress out of trying to create a flip card!

The red button came from one of my old shirts and sentiment was recycled from a previous card.  

The Starbook was a project that Gail shared with us at our monthly crop.   Thanks Gail!  I got to use my neglected Bind it All.  There are loads of videos on how to make these awesome books.  Here's one of them from Expert Village.

I added some old pictures.  The paper was just too gorgeous so I tried to make sure it wasn't all covered up.  I love the way it turned out!

You can purchase Kathy Ortas Lapbook tutorial here and check out one of her vids here.  Mine is the older version.  Looks like I might have to purchase version 2 now, think I like the layout better.

I used the same red file folder to create my flip card.  There is so much room inside this book.  My mother is going to use it for her paperwork.  I was able to use up almost an entire collection of paper.  Yippee!

I kept the embellishment to zero, this book will get a lot of use and needs to be functional.  I will be entering the following challenges:
Hope to see you all join in the fun at Simply Create Too!

Thanks for stopping by, hugz

It's a Winner!
