A New Adventure!

In case you have noticed that my posts have been a bit sporadic lately, it is because I have started on a new business venture recently! You are reading the blog of a new Usborne Books Independent Consultant! Usborne is a fantastic company that sells educational, non-fiction, and engaging books through retail outlets as well as in home parties. Since I am such a newbie, I am working hard at building my business and scheduling parties! Keep your eyes peeled for a link to my Usborne website to appear in my sidebar soon. You can then go there to check things out and more importantly, to shop! I already have a customer in my fellow Prettie Girl, Jana (thanks for your order, Jana!!). :) Jana used to live overseas in Germany, so she has an appreciation for Usborne....the only English books that I could find when my family lived in Switzerland!

Now, back to my project! I made this fun (and ultra easy) note card folio recently with one of my favourite colour pirouette and chocolate chip. The base is pink pirouette, the patterned paper is from Sandylion (LOVE this paper....must get more!) and the ribbon is from American Crafts. Isn't it gorgeous?! Must get more of that too......

I just realized that I don't have a photo of the inside of the folio....I must remember to take one next time I make this project. It is very straight forward....the bottom of an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of card stock is folded up two inches and that is it. Ta da! Done. I used sticky strip to seal up the sides of the folded up pocket and included four of these flat note cards and four envelopes.

The blooms on the note cards are from Making Memories and the brads are from JoAnn Essentials.
There you have it! Thanks for stopping by today!
Oh, and don't forget to stop by for my Paper Pretties scrapbooking challenge on Thursday! I will have a challenge and a layout to share. See you then!
