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.
If you are interested in stamping your own WEB Note Book, I have uploaded the templates for 4 different inside pages, which can be found HERE.

Today’s project was inspired by a friend. Before celebrating her 50th birthday she made her first jump skydiving (and with her mom too!!!). I recall her comment after the jump … “that was one for the bucket list!”
This tall narrow notepad is an official “Bucket List”. 😉
Instead of using daisies (sorry, dark humor), I decided to stamp some cheery and sunny sunflowers. 🙂 The masking for the letters, flowers, and leaves were done using the “clear embossing masking technique” (more info about this technique can be found HERE ). First I stamped the word “bucket”, then the flowers and leaves followed by the drop shadow for “bucket”. Next time I think I will apply clear imboss directly to the white cardstock (for white letters), then add the drop shadow … followed by filling in the background behind the letters with leaves making the word “bucket” pop more.
If you’re interested in stamping a Bucket List notepad (or a narrow list pad in general) the numbered list PDF template for inside page can be downloaded by going HERE.
When posting my Giant Red Sunflower Tag Card, I realized the original had slipped through the “blogging cracks” and I never shared it … so here it is. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful (and of course … inky) week!
