I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Anniversary Coupon Book

Well I finally finished my Cartridge challenge to use Mother's Day Seasonal 2010. I am running a bit behind schedule, as it is already into the next week. Hopefully I can get all caught up this week, and keep up with my own challenges.

This is a gift for my DH for our upcoming anniversary. It has just a few coupons for things like sleeping in, lunch dates, and backrubs.
I used my Gypsy to hide the word "book" on the cover. I then added an s from Blackletter to the word coupon. I cut the back layer twice, once in blue and once in yellow to layer behind the front cover. I also cut "you" in yellow using the Blackletter font. The 4 was also from Blackletter. I decorated the outside using some prima flowers and mini flowers and butterflies from a Creative Memories mini punch. I added some bling and doodles using Sakura gelly roll Metallic in Black, and Clear Sparkle. I love these pens for adding some sparkle to a project without the mess of glitter.

The inside coupons were layered with a piece of patterned paper from my stash. I printed the coupons on my computer and had cut them to fit on the backside of the tags. I stamped the word coupon, using some small alpha stamps in Stampin' Up Concord Crush Ink. I then used the same ink to ink up the edges of the coupons. I added an extra punched butterfly to each coupon.

It is just a little something for my DH to let him know I appreciate him.

Have a Great Day!
