Gift for MOM

I am trying to plan ahead for my classes in the new year. Great idea for a Mother's Day Class or "Just Because Gift" class. After all, we really don't need to wait until Mother's Day to give our Mom's a gift :)  This cute little journal book was so easy and fun to make.  I covered the "On Board 5" x 5" Art Journal" with the "Sending Love" Specialty Designer Paper which is in the Occasions Mini Catalog using Tombow adhesive.  I cut 18 pieces of Chocolate Chip satin ribbon, which will also be available on January 5th when the Occasions Mini Catalog will be available to order from.  I tied the ribbon through the spirals.

I am loving the new Clear Mount Stamps.  They are so easy to use and make stamping an image exactly where you want it an absolute dream.  The fact that the stamp is rubber gives it a clean, crisp image.  The clear blocks are fabulous. They have a great grip and are perfect.

I stamped all the pages with this cute stamp and colored the flowers with Chocolate Chip and Pretty in Pink Stampin' Write Markers.  Again, credit to the clear mount stamp, I was able to perfectly place the stamp right where I wanted it.....quickly.

I stamped the "MOM" stamps with Chocolate Chip Classic Ink on Whisper White Card Stock, layered it onto a scalloped edged piece of Chocolate Chip Card Stock and colored it with the Pretty in Pink Stampin' Write Marker.  You can't tell from the picture, but I added Crystal Effects to it.  It looks fabulous.  I added a flower from the Pretties Kit and colored the small flower with the Pretty in Pink Stampin' Write Marker and the small middle with the Chocolate Chip one. 
"Messages for Mom" Stamp Set available January 5th.

Have a wonderful day :)
