Stationery was die cut using Spellbinder's Diamond Strip Tuck and Fold
Despite my promises, to myself and hubby, that I would not apply for another design team,  I applied to become a member of Eclectic Ellapu.  Elaine and I are teammates over at The Outlawz and I have been oohing and awing over her work for a long time.  I am just excited to be a participant in her new venture.

I want to invite all my Card-d-ologists to stop by and leave some love and a project!  Our Theme for our 1st Opening Challenge is "Anything Goes."  My team "Pink Team" is first up.  Next week we will have our 2nd 1st Challenge hosted by the "Purple Team."   Remember, we are the Eclectics, don't be afraid to show us something different, lovers of all things Avant-garde, we can't wait to see your creations.  Hugz, Chana

Our new challenge blog is all about FUN, FUN, FUN.  We are purely a badge awarding challenge blog rather than being sponsored.
Anyone wanting to join in our weekly challenges has the autonomy to create whatever they wish just as long as it fits the theme for that week.   Maximum entries of 3.

We aim to comment on all entries.

DT's can enter the challenge but will not be eligible for badges. 

Winners will be picked by the challenge host for their week. 

NO RANDOM ORG allowed on this blog, no matter how many entries.  There will be a top five for each one hundred entries

Instructions for this project can be found here

Stationery/Tag Holder and Notebook Set
The Image is a Freebie from Through The Craft Room Door Magazine

This holder is designed to reside on a desk, but can be carried in a purse

I usually include 4 Stationery Sheets, 3 Tags, and 2 Note Cards.  The contents are determined by the size of the envelopes I use to create the holder.  I also send the recipients additional stationery and notecards throughout the year.  Sometimes, I will place the holder and additional stationery in an altered  gift box.

These wonderful little composition books come three to a pack at Dollar Tree!

This project has been entered into the following challenges:

Cupcake Inspirations
Lady Anne's Card Designs
