Whimsical Meaning

The word "whimsical" (or whimsy) means amusing, fun, fanciful or even playfulness. To me it just means JOY! I try to make each day joyful by filling my days with goodness.

First notebook using my Cinch Machine

 Hello friends! I just wanted to show you what I made today using awesome Stampin' Up! products and my fun, new Cinch machine. It's my first time using it and I can see this is going to be fun. I'm already thinking of all the fun stuff I can make using it ;)

I will list the Stampin' Up! products I used at the end of this post so be sure to check those out. What I did first, was take two 6" x 6" pieces of chipboard and cover front and back with DSP. I glued them and made sure I had the corners glued down well. I had some writing paper (that I've had forever) so I cut it into 5.5" x 5.5" pieces for the inside.

I then, made pockets for the inside front and back covers. I made tags to tuck inside and even decorated the flap of an extra envelope I had and added that to the back of my book.

Next, I finished embellishing by adding more layers of papers and stamping/coloring my darling gnome. I just love her!

Now it was time to try out my Cinch machine. Super easy and super fun! Isn't this book cute?!

Punched all the holes in the chipboard covers, the envelope and all the papers. Assembled and cinched the wires closed.
