Birthday Reminder Mini Book

I have really enjoyed being a member of the Scrapbooks Plus Design Team this year.  It has really helped me stay on top of the new paper lines and encouraged me to step outside my creative box a bit.  I love seeing all the awesome art work my fellow team members create.  They are all so talented!!  Thanks, Scrapbooks-Plus, for letting me be a part of this great team!!

This month's kit was really fun to work with! I was expecting to scrapbook my pictures from last Christmas with holiday themed papers but Lisa surprised me with this cool kit!  It inspired me to look back at the different months of 2011 and also think ahead about one of my goals for 2012.  I confess that I am terrible about remembering birthdays.  Not my immediate families' birthdays thankfully, but others that I really care about that I am also close to.  I really want to get organized in 2012 to help me overcome this fault and put together a perpetual calendar where I can jot down all the important birthdays.  This paper was perfect for this!  The kit has some pages that you can easily cut into 4 x 6" pieces for the pages. 

I alternated my colored pages and used the super cute coordinating stickers to embellish my pages.  On the unlined pages, I used a 'journaling' stamp for my lines but you could easily draw the lines in with a ruler or go with the freehand method without lines!  I used a punch for my month tabs and the letter stickers that came with the kit for the month titles on each.  Below is a photo of the tabs and the page for June.

Stop by the store and take a look at this super quick book.  I used my Bind it All to put it all together and tied ribbons on the outside for added cuteness!  These would also make super cute gifts for friends and family.  Enjoy!
