Well, I finished swaps today for leadership and I’ll be sharing those 2 cards with you on Thursday and Friday!

     I don’t think I have mentioned my Epic Day This and That Journal. I was gone this summer on a West Coast Adventure that lasted four weeks! I ventured to Los Angeles to see my sister and to Fresno for a family wedding. Then on to Seattle to visit my upline (that left me a year ago and I miss her terribly). Then the two of us drove to Salt Lake City for the annual Stampin’ Up! convention. The journal turned out to be perfect for recording all that I did.

     I took my journal to NC to show the granddarlin’s! I gave “Darlin'” one for her 11th birthday this year. On New Year’s day she was working on her journal and said, “BeauBet, (that’s my grandmother name!) will you show me how to make a pocket for my journal?”

                                                           Epic Day



1. Cut a template out of computer paper (so if you mess up
     you haven’t ruined your good paper.)
2. I make my template 1″ wider and 1/2″ longer than finished
3. Score at 1/2″ on 3 sides using your Simply Scored.    

4. Fold on score lines and check to see if sample is the size   you want. If it is repeat with DSP (Designer Series Paper)
or card stock.
5. If using DSP, snail adhesive will work.

6. If using card stock, I cut out the small square so it’s not so
thick when folding and I use Sticky Strip to adhere.

TIP: Sticky strip is unforgiving–once it’s down, it’s down!
          So be careful where you put it.

TIP: You may need to add more width depending on what’s   going in the pocket!

TIP: I use the bigger end of the stylis when using it on DSP
being careful not to press too hard and tear paper. The smaller
end I use for card stock.

     Hope this was helpful! Happy stampin’,
