I found one binder for one of ladies I'm making a binder for. Just need to find one more now but I'm having trouble finding the color I want.

As in I know we all need hugs right now.



I'm going to work on the tags this next Saturday as it is SCRAP Day at my house. So wish I could at least get Skype and I'd dial y'all in to play paper with us. If I finish the tags- I will work on my partner's binder. Have the chipboard and all- just need to cover, embellish & all those wonderful things. I have just the perfect paper for her too. I also just got in a bunch of ribbon that was on sale at SB.com- I plan on putting a lot of ribbon tales on the hinges. I also just got in a new CTMH stamp set that matches her perfect theme.... the format is coming together in my head- now to put it together....

OK ladies.....I know everyone has been running a bit behind....myself included and with the wedding right around the corner I knew there was NO way I was going to be able to get these done sooooooooo I hope nobody is to upset but I pushed the due date until the end of August.....August 30......I figured that would give us all some time to get caught up and in Sept we can start fresh!!!!


I was also thinking......for the pages about me/you......do you think we should make it simpler.....maybe come up with a standard form and just have each person fill in thier info and decorate the page a little bit??? that way if new people join or we want to add other friends to our books later its not such a big project to do a new page......just a thought....let me know what you think

Thanks Debby & Char....I will wait to see how everyone else weighs in and in the mean time maybe start to put something together....I was thinking if I put it together I could just email to each of you.....you could print 10 copies, fill them out, embellish a little bit and BAM they are done!!!! nice and easy!!!!

That's a great idea- I have some cardstock I could feed thru the printer & it's done except for those finishing touches. Yes- making it easier I think will go a long way to helping everyone jump back on this one.

I think you're right Char I think it will be a help to everyone!! and hopefully will help everyone get these finished so we can move on to something else!!!!

CI. Didn't realize it'd been so long since I checked in here. Still haven't started this either, since I still have a few more tags to make Sorry ladies. This summer is kicking my butt. I signed up for too much stuff, taking me longer than expected. I'm glad you all are such an understanding bunch though I like the extended DD and the standard form to fill out. Basic info and favorites and then maybe add a space for anything extra we might want to add to it. Sounds good to me

Cass- don't forget a photo of us- like a bust shot at minimum (I know we mentioned it somewhere before)- also if we have pets (as I know our furry friends are extended family to many of us)- kids & their DOB (as ages will quickly get outdated- unless they are grown & therefore just list them like- 1 DS etc)- or is all that too much? Or maybe just include that in the A little about me area as some bases of family. So we'd put a guide for the "A Little About Me" to please include your spouse, children & pets as applicable as well as the other unique things about yourself that you want to share.

What do you think?

I'm so excited!!!!

I plan on using chipboard for my covers. I have 2 inch binder rings. I will use the protective page cover to line up the holes on my chipboard covers. I just have to figure out how big to make the chipboard covers because I want it to be a little bit bigger than the pages..



Debby - I plan on doing this too & bought what I thought was chipboard, but it is really more like the thickness of a cereal box- I'm thinking of doubling them together (4 sheets total) for the covers and then putting fabric glued & sewn on the edges (like bias tape to be strong) to hold everything together. Did you get actual chipboard- or did you get the same I got? and are you doing the same double up? Just curious as I've never ventured to put something together like this before.

I got the same thing you did Char!! I didn't double it up, I just used the one piece. After covering both sides with paper, It feels thick enough. I also put pockets on the inside of the front and back covers...

Ok Ladies I was looking at my list this am and realized I was CONFUSED!!!! I know who everyone partner is but there were 4 people in the circle who chose not to participate in this swap.....
Izzy
Henva
Vani
Lilly

I know we decided to make them a binder anyway
I took an extra name, Erin took one and Debby took one

The only person who still needs a binder made for them is Izzy and I can't remember if someone said they would do it and I just didn't write it down or if we still needed someone to make her one?????

Sorry my brain is so FRAZZLED!!!!

Got them!!! AWESOME Debby. I love that you put pockets on the inside- great idea. Did you do anything under the paper to reinforce the area around the holes? I take it you also put a page protector in there to determine the size of the cover- I guess that would be the easiest way. How much beyond the page protector did you go? I remember you said you were adding a bit beyond, but don't remember how much. Maybe you didn't say.

Since I just finished (finally) my 1991 family album yesterday (WOOHOO)(only took me 1year + several months of unk qty) I will work on this next. So excited to have a major project behind me. That's one fat album too. Also the last of my CM albums I had bought when I first started scrapbooking. I can now move on to my CTMH albums and also being able to work on multiple projects at a time. That's my goal anyway.
Since my DH left for Ft Gordon this past Saturday I will have much more scrap time available to me- which is the good thing about him being gone

Mailing Address (it's on the header of the thread- but since we are doing a "form" thought it best we add it)

How about also nicknames if it applies. For example, I'm Charlene, but often go by Char. Also there are nicknames I do not accept- like Charlie as my dad is Charles and goes by Charlie or Chuck, as well as I have a cousin Charlotte who goes by Charli- so- we need to account for nick-names. I guess the nicknames not accepted should go into the "A little about me" area- but you get the idea.

So we now have:
Name
SB Name
Nickname
Mailing Address
birthday
Children and their date of birth
Spouse
Pets
Favorites:
-Color/Color scheme
-Flower
-Food
-Music
-Technique
-Products
-Brands
-Embellishments

I didn't do any reinforcing around the holes. I did measure my book according to the size of the protector. I went 1/4 inch past the size of the page protector.

that seems a good distance around- 1/4"

Which makes me think- Are we supplying our completed forms already IN a document protector when we send them? Or have all our own & place them when we get them? I'd prefer to place what I receive myself as I like mine to be all the same type. For example I use the Avery Heavy Duty diamond clear. Also it would probably be better on postage as less weight to mail.

there are many types- some cheep ones don't allow thick or multiple pages. also there is non-glare (which I do not like personally), there is regular, heavy duty, etc- different brands vary how the pages sit in the binder too- you wouldn't think so, but I guess it's how they seam the edges. So my neatso self wants them all the same

I saw your apples on the other thread....YUM!!!!!! no apples for us yet this year....our neightbor has a beautiful apple tree but she only comes up here a couple times a year so we usually "take care of" the apples for her......one of favorite parts of fall!!!!....OM Goodness did I just say fall?????? where the heck did summer go???? UHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

Cass- what an incredible awesomeness of an idea- a scrap day for a bachelorette party. I am so so glad you like your smash book & that I got it for you in time to put down the key things about all the preparation and process as well as the event itself.

Normally we haven't been getting any apples to survive the deer. However, since our friends moved into my dad's house (as renter/caretaker) they have 3 dogs- one a husky who stays out at night & watches the forest line for anything to venture towards the houses that he can chase. Thus the apples were allowed to ripen- all except those that the birds got. But only the small tree had the fruit. Only 1 of the larger trees had 6-12 or so- most that I can't reach. We did have a late frost after a mild winter- so the larger trees buds/fruit didn't survive that- maybe the smaller tree budded just after that- or being between the 2 larger trees was somehow protected... not sure. But I have enough to eat, make a pie & a tart or 2. Haven't cooked with these, so I guess that will be a test before I set up all those things to bake. LOL

I have an appointment with a neurologist on 20Aug about my migraines. I sure hope there's some answers as I'm tired of having a constant headache with spikes of migraines- daily. Ugh!

so- tomorrow is Cass's big day- all the planning & preparation comes to an end- just praying she can enjoy it all and not worry about all the things that she intended, but didn't get done.

congrats to cass, I hope she has a wonderful wedding and enjoys her day and in the end the little things don't matter all that matters is your married and it was one of the best days of your life, when I got married the day before the limo place called as we were getting ready to go to rehearshal and said my limo I rented was broke down in another state and they were trying to get me another one I sat there and bawled my maid of honor says it don't matter you are still gonna be married and that is all that matters it took alot of talking to me but it all ended up being fine now we just sit back and laugh about it, and they got me 2 limos to make up for the one that was gonna fit the whole wedding party and they got us 3 bottles of champagne, it all worked out

I haven't even started. I feel horrible about that. I'm still trying to finish tags(I only have 2 left to do). And I'm still on the hunt for a binder to alter for one of my partners.

No worries erin!!! this was a big project!!

I am going to send a note out today to everyone in the group to see where all the projects stand and if they want to continue on in the group....we kind of got off to a slow start have kinda let things drag out a bit.....we have all been so busy that its been easy to keep moving the due date.....and thats ok....I just think we need to have everyone check in and let us know if they still want to participate in the group and then wrap up all the projects we have started and move on to something that maybe doesn't take so much time......with the holidays right around the corner I hate to see all of us get bogged down with more projects and this become a chore and not something that we enjoy!!!

My goal is to work on my binder Thursday and by weekends end to have it and my about me pages done!!! we will see how it goes!!!

Hi All...

Sorry I have been away but there wasn't much going on here for a while so I just stopped checking in. In fact, I don't think I have been on SB.com for a couple of weeks now!

Life is crazy for me right now, as it is for most of you so I will just tell you that I am going to send out everything that has been sent to me as of now! I will sort it, pack it up, and have it mailed out to y'all on Monday.

Even though Cheena, Lilly, Val, and Susie haven't sent anything I will still be sending your items to you. I know that it will cost me but I am NOT going to keep track of the expense. I am only going to make sure that everything that has been sent to me for each of you, makes it to it's appropriate person. After that, Cassondra will see to it that everything is swapped out from here.

I do need an address for Cheena and Lilly though. So if anyone has their address or if they see this post please PM me your address so that I can send your package on it's way. I have everyone else's address already, either because I received a package from you or because I previously swapped with you.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I will check be checking for those addresses before mailing everything on Monday.

Take care...Be blessed...

Bon
