Web Note Book … labor today for ease tomorrow!

Happy Labor Day and Happy KSS Monday!

It is so hard to believe that summer is over when most of the country is having a major heat wave!  Well, I hope wherever you are, you are having a wonderful and restful Labor Day … and staying cool! 

Today is the last day of our Labor Day Sale – 30% off all in stock stamps! 

Promo Code: LABOR30. Sale ends midnight tonight – (PST).

Today’s project may look a bit “labor” intensive, but it is so worth it!

I was getting so tired with all my scraps of paper and post-it notes with login & password info. Frustrated having to hunt through the pile when I forgot which password or which email address (I have 5 now!) I used to create an account…. not to mention if I had changed the password!

So, I finally got my act together and created a WEB Note Book. It has made my life so much easier! I can now find login/password/email info with a flip of a page. I added clear dividers (from Zutter) so I could separate my web book info into different sections…  one for personal, one for business and the 3rd section for all my father’s login info – since I do all his banking & payments online too.  (Internet tip: To help prevent getting hacked into, use a different email address for different activities – [ie:  one only with financial transactions, one only for purchase, etc.] … and use different passwords and user names for each web & email account).

My WEB Note Book was stamped using  Multi Step Iris & Multi Step HummingBirds.

Today’s mini scrapbook pages (6″x6″) are not new, but are very dear to my heart, so I must show them again on this special day that pays tribute to those in service!

These  2 pages are of my GrandFather, who served in the Army in WWI. They were made for a small family album I started. The original post can be seen HERE  for a challenge to “Stamp Out Alzheimer’s”.

Pink Hydrangeas

Happy Kitchen Sink Monday!

 My card for today was inspired by Lynn’s 10 min. challenge – #76 (10MC76) – quick masking with nestabilities. I think adding a shape, in this case a square, behind the flowers, makes the flowers look like they are “popping” out of a bow or “window” instead of floating. Thanks Lynn for sharing this great challenge (and tip).

I used 3 Step Hydrangea , 3 Step Letters from the Past and Words of Love.  I think I was a bit heavy-handed when sponging the ink in the square masked area …  I think I should have used a lighter pink. It looks too much like the same color as the flowers. Live and learn. 🙂
