Across the Miles

I am constantly in search of ways to NOT forget to put a card in the mail for my friends and family's birthdays. I rarely succeed in my endeavors. So, when I saw this "naked" address book/perpetual calendar from Pinecone Press in the LSS, I snatched it into my cart!

I altered it with some PP from American Crafts and Jillibean Soup (I just discovered this line, and I picked up a ton of it! Way cute!). The image is from PTI's new release, Everyday Button Bits. I love this set, and I love how the button colors match the trees in the PP! The bird is a MSL punch, and I'm not sure where the ribbon came from. I used my Nesties for the main image.

The book came with the spiral separate, so it made it very easy to alter. I first painted the edges with white paint. Then I covered the front and back with PP and the insides with coordinating CS. I painted the edges again, and Mod Podged the whole thing (minus the buttons).

This is the inside of the address part. I'm looking forward (sort of ;)) to getting all of my addresses all organized, and in one place! It's on my to-do list. :)

And lastly, here's the back that I stamped with the PTI's Birds of a Feather stamp set. I really like that little birdy.
I made another one of these for a friend, but I'll have to wait to show you that one. I really like how it turned out, too. :)
And now I'm off! I've got a living room to clean up, and a husband to talk to! Have a good evening!


  1. This is so very cute! Hope my address is in there for some happy mail


So what do you think?
