The left-hand side is a vinyl cover from an old day planner I purchased at Michaels for $1. I put a new 2 year calendar for 2011-12 in it. The one on the right is a vinyl check book cover with a note pad inside that tears from the top like checks do. I found the new day planners with covers at Oriental Tracing Company and got 12 for $1.99 HERE. It seems they are out of stock for these, but these will also work, HERE. I needed a couple other things too. I found the vinyl check book covers and note pads on EBay from a seller. She also has a store site HERE. When I bought on EBay, the total shipping was $2.++. If you bought from her store, I would ask about combining shipping, at least.
I created the first set for a friend who likes purple and green. I used the cover of the old day planner to cut the new covers from (2) 2 sided pieces of DP. I think it's from SU, not sure. It measured 6.25X7.5 for the day planner cover and 6 1/8X6.5 for the checkbook cover.
I used opposite sides of the DP for each cover. The image is Stampendous Shelley Rose Bouquet painted with Twinkling H2O's. The images are from days gone by. The yellow flowers were highlighted with Glossy Accents, the white ones with Viva Ice White and glitter glue for the centers. Any floral image that is elongated will do for the cover. The background is Martha Stewart's Deep Edge Garden Trellis. It was stamped twice for 6". Each piece was trimmed to the edge of the trellis and then overlapped and sealed with glue. The same thing was done with the ends. The ribbon is Michaels $1 bin. The pearls are 3mm stickers. It was woven through the scallops and tied with the Bow-Easy used for the bow.
It really wasn't that much work.....so I did a second set for another friend who likes daisies. I did everything the same except the mat behind the vases is Spellbinders Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles. These images were also done a long time ago. The image is from Impression Obsession Red Rubber Cling Set Charming Gardeners. It was painted with Twinkling H2O's and the edges on the image on the bottle were done with Gold Leaf. The rose bud and daisies were highlighted with Glossy Accents. The pearls are 3mm stickers.
I hope you enjoyed your visit and I should be back soon with more! Thanks for stopping by to look and share.
