My mom's birthday was Thursday, this is what I made her:
I'm really happy with how it turned out, it was really a lot of fun to make and of course I learned a few things. (Bind it before you put big bulky items on so that you can actually get it in the bind-it-all! The weren't where I was going to punch the hole but they made it difficult to slide the paper to be punched.) I also loved the effect that heat embossing on chipboard does. My numbers were not all black, I think they some were gold, glitter purple, and silver. I just used some versamark and black embossing powder (twice) and away you go! It turned out great! and the best part she loved it! Now I just need to print out this years pictures......
