Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “My Happiest Season”. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
I am a happy girl whenever it isn’t over a hundred degrees here in the desert, so I am going with winter for my happiest season! Mainly I just wanted to play with the super cute Penguin Place Bundle and the Sale-A-Bration Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper. Don’t you just love all these adorable winter friends!?
This little notebook will have the job of helping me keep track of holiday gifts and gatherings. I even made a little pocket in the very back to house receipts whether it is the one from the store or UPS for the gift shipment. I don’t know about you, but I have a tendency to hide gifts and forget about them. Since it will get a lot of use and live in my purse most of the time, the outside and penguin dangle are laminated to help prevent wear and tear.
Penguin Notebook Flip Through
Below is a page by page flip through so you can take a “cool” stroll through my little notebook. I know it will be bringing me smiles all winter long!
- Cut 6 Basic White pieces at 2.5″x4.5″ – Group 1 with with two of the pieces below and stamp as desired.
- Cut 11 Basic White pieces at 2.5″x2″ – Group 2 with one of the pieces above and stamp as desired. Note 1 page only has 1 due to large polar bear cut out.
