Ok so I started out with a Little Debbies snack cake box, and covered the out side with patterned paper. I used all Close to my Heart stamps. Three sets. I used a lady from the "be yourself" set. I stamped it three times then enlarged them with a copier. I originally meant to stamp the dress pink. but there is a hint of purple from a prior stamping. I found this to be a "happy accident" so I left it as it was. I used scissors and cut and paste the clothing to make a more colorful version. I used the stamp "i am... so happy from the summer set. I also made an oops with the purple, so I double stamped the words in cranberry and I think it came out PERFECT! I am so happy how it came out!
For the inside I used a solid paper to cover the inside. Originally I wanted two pockets so the pad of paper could be replaceable. I started the project before I bought the pads of paper and found out it couldn't be done that way. So I had to glue it to the inside. I used ribbon to make a holder for the pen. For the pocket I had these "pop-up" page accesories that I had kicking around, so I cut one in half, covered it in patterned paper and glued three sides of it to the inside. As you can see on the pocket is the orignial lady that I enlarged for the cover. I double stamped the words "just because" from the Whooo loves you set.
