Clear It Out Tuesday and Unity Friday

I wanted to share this with all my Unity Peeps since almost all the stamps on it were Unity. Only the Father Sentiment, the kraft colored tickets and Coupons are not Unity...


And today is Unity's Friends with Flair, so make sure to go check out all who are participating HERE.


There is a new challenge over at the Clear It Out's Challenge Blog to use some trims on your projects.

I decided to make my husband a coupon book for his upcoming birthday. I used mailing envelopes for the pages and actually put my Bind It All to use to bind the book together! Bout time huh! Only had it for year!

Anyway, I used my spellbinder label 4 die to cut each end of the envelopes to make it easier to get the coupons out.

The coupons I made with a digital stamp. The stamping inside the book are from Unity Stamps as well as a clear stamp set for the little tickets.

Are you ready for A LOT of pictures???

Pattern Paper from a Wal-Mart pack, Cardstock is Paper Company(?) & Georgia Pacific.

Frame and Sentiment from Echo Park set I Adore You. Flourish is a MM rubon. 

Monsters and sentiment from Itty Bitty: Nicest Place To Be (Paper pieced and then colored with Copics). Die shape was cut with Silhouette and was Designed by Me!

A close up of the trims. Stamp Image is from Sweet & Sour Soup and the label die is Samantha Walker's label frame tag, cut on the Silhouette. Border is a Martha Stewart Punch.

Sentiment from Past Kit of the Month: Delightful Moments {KOM Dec 2009}.

This sentiment was also from Sweet & Sour Soup which I was kind of sad about. When purchasing this Fast Facebook Offer, I really thought these stamps were MUCH bigger than they turned out to be... BUT the sentiments are still great sentiments!

More of MARTHA'S TRIMS. Sentiment from another Past Kit of the Month: Take Time To Laugh {KOM Oct 2010}. Die cut was cut with Silhouette and was designed by me!

Large ticket is from Here's the Ticket, sentiment from Past Kit of the Month: A Pocket Full Of...{KOM July 2009}, and small tickets are a clear stamp I picked up at Joann's I think! 
 Punched border is from Stampin' Up!

Isn't that a great picture of the boys!?  Image from Little Me while the sentiment (Dear Father) is Stampin' Up!
 Die shape is Inverted Circle from Spellbinders.

I made about 12 of these tickets with the computer. I printed the ticket on colored paper and then the centers on white and paper pieced them together. 

Some were signed by Hunter and say things like "Ice Cream for Two" and "Any activity of your choice!" 

Colton even has a ticket that says "Playing Ball."

Now that you have seen my almost endless amount of pictures of my little book, go check out the other DT projects on
