How Do You Feel Today?

>> Monday, June 22, 2009

First of all, let me give a shout out to Kim for becoming a Grandma today!  I swear if you saw her you wouldnt think she even had a 10 year old, let alone a child who was old enough to birth another child!  Kim is just fantastic herself and i'm so excited for her to be in this next journey in her life!

Anyhoo - Kim also helps to run the bella club over at Funkie Munkie Scraps (which by the way, tomorrow or rather probably today by the time you are reading this since i'm posting VERY late, is the last day for the July featureabella contest).  Kim had said she'd whip up the project for the club this month and um... hello!  You need to be a grandma first!  SO this was just a quickie project i came up with to do at the club tonight.  It was super easy to make and lots of fun.  We used 4 different bellas but it would be VERY easy to add to it.  :)

Here's our How I Feel Today project...

I really wanted to have a feelabella in there for those days that we just are plain sick but *GASP* she's a bella i actually do not own!  How in the world do i not own such an essential bella like feelabella!  I know i have some images of her, but then they wouldnt be cut with my neato cricut cartridge.  *sigh* for shame, i guess i'll have to buy her.  When Steph gets her back in stock at Funkie Munkie of course.  hehehehehehe.

Other than that every thing was made out of the scrap bin and you gotta love those projects!

Here's what you'll need...

3 x 12 piece of sturdy cardstock.
Really Strong adhesive
bind it all (those that are in the club and will get this kit via snail mail, yours will be punched for you and you can just pinch the clips closed, it's easy i promise)
Coloring medium of choice
Embellishments of choice
4 pennies
The phrase and words have been printed just on my computer.  Those in the club will get them.  Those just making it for fun, can print your own.  hehehehe.

Now, take your strip of cardstock and score it at 4.5, 9, and 11.5.  This is to create your triangle.  That extra half inch is just to glue to the backside to keep it together.

Are you asking what the heck the pennies are for?  I glues the to the 4 corners underneath the whole thing.  You'd be amazed what a difference it makes.  I tried to just flip to the next bella and knocked the thing over.  So i glued pennies to the understand (using fabritac, glue dots would work too) and no more knocking over.  

Easy peasy!

Katie, great project, you have just made me put those stamps and a Bind it All onto my wish list. I only ever did cards, so did not see the point of Bind it all machine for me, but I have veered off in a different direction after entering the challenges on Tuesday Taggers, and am going to be selling some of my stash so that I can get more stamps and stuff for altered art...Sorry I sometimes get "verbal di.....a" Hugs Avril xx
