Cruisin' the 'net is fun ;P

Hi Lovelies, 

Yes it's share time again.  So far I've been cruisin' around the internet & get inspired by YouTube.  There are some truly amazing crafters out there.  I've been inspired by them to create some "Wow" & fun projects.  Always a good thing.  Today's share is of one of them.

Firstly you need to go here, here, here, here, & here.  This is where I got the "how to" to make this version.  I love, love how this Note card Folio turned out & so easy.  There is no stamping on this project & the only thing that I die cut myself is the hello on the front, then I used a Fiskars' Border Punch on the front flap.  Using The Crafters Workshop die TWC 1036 Hello.  All of these papers except the bazzil dot c/s came from this pad.  

The top right photo is of a "Belly Band" I made to keep it all closed.  I added it, as I thought it would make it easier to keep tidy, ribbon would have worked just as well.

Whilst making this project I had a "Light Bulb" moment (spoken just like Gru).  I added glue to the back of my die-cut Hello whilst it was still in the die.  I just added the tiniest bit & because it was still in the die it was so easy to apply.  Then I used my hook tool (handle with a pin on the end) to gently poke/lift it out of the die.  No more mess! YAY :)  Not sure if anyone else has discovered this, but thought I'd share anyway.

Today I'm sitting outside under our pergola watching the kids swim.  Life is great.
