I love old school office supplies and was excited to see the new release of Address Book from Spellbinders, which included these rolodex card dies, along with some very cool label dies that I will be using for another project. I didn't let the fact that I did not have a rolodex stop me!
Rather than use my own hand painted paper, I decided to raid my supply of Artists' Paper that comes free within the pages of so many wonderful Stampington & Company magazines. Thanks to all those artists who contributed! These pages are one sided, so I started off by gluing two pages back to back.
I then used the Grand Caibur® Machine to die cut my first card.
For this project I made 23 cards, with the tabs varying from left to center to right.
Since I did not have a rolodex, I needed something else to store the cards in. I found this box in my stash -- it had been waiting years to be used in the perfect project.
Perfect fit! Time to collage..
I gathered my materials from my ever-growing supply of "stuff", which included ephemera, magazine clippings, stickers, rub-ons, stamps, and the like. I also used a number of small die cuts from Spellbinders.
I dove in and when I came up for air, I had completed all 23 cards.
Here are just a few:
Then on to the box...
And my completed project!
