Ippity Do Da Kind of Day!

I am participating in another week of Ippity Hop! Make sure to go check it out and leave some love to all the gals participating.

I wanted to share some cute little meander books I'm addicted to making right now! I use Martha Stewart Craftstock for the pages because that paper is SO stinkin thick! I know these books will last for at least a minute that way!
(I went to buy another MS craftstock paper pack on Saturday... and whoa is me... it is no longer being carried by Michael's :(... what do I do now? It was a 120 page package for just $14.99....I'm so bummed.)

The pages end up measuring 3"x3".
The photo mats on the inside pages are big enough to hold a 2.5"x2.5" photo and the tags are roughly 2"x2.5"

I have 2 to share with you today using IPPITY!

The front uses Ippity Moon Beams & Heart Strings for the stars and sentiment. I added mini rhinestones to each of the full stars on the cover for a little extra pizazz! I also added a rhinestone to the 'o' in ONE.

The inside uses the stars from the same set and the Nestabilites Label 1 with Waltzing Mouse's Vintage Label 1 coordinating stamps for a place for journaling or just naming people in the pictures or whatever! (SU taken with teal).
I didn't stamp the tags for this one, but stapled the ribbon to them instead of looping in through a hole.

The second book
uses the FAMILY stamp from the Life's Little Moments set. I also used a Unity stamp for the tag. It comes from Flirty Flowers. (Old Olive).I used the Nestabilities Label 1 along with the Waltzing Mouse coordinating stamp Vintage Label 1. (SU Taken with Teal)The green flourish on the inside is from SU's Vintage Vogue. (SU Old Olive). Think I used enough companies on this little book?!

I opened an artfire account over the weekend. If you are interested in these books, or many of my cards, you can find them
