Day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!

Welcome to Day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop with Donna Salazar Designs.  If you are just joining in, make sure you see my post from yesterday below with all the info and links.  If you are already hoppin', thanks for coming back today for more from Scrappy Nan! 
Today is all about the Bind-it-All and Jennifer Priest and I are your hoppy hosts today.

Here is what I want to share with you today....a perennial Bind-it-All favorite: the Post-it-Note mini memo album.  These a super easy and quick to make and everyone loves 'em.

I start my Post-It minis with 4X4 Zutter Clipboard Wood (for the back covers) and Zutter Acrylic (for the front covers).  If you have two packages of each of these plus ONE length of 3/4" owire (I used Antique Silver), it's enough to make FOUR of these projects!  I also used Donna's Joe Snow stamp, and Musical Memories paper.
By the way, if you haven't seen the Musical Memories....it's so fun.  Donna has put her own twist on Christmas music paper with cute illustrations and whimsical lyrics.  Everything is crafty-ized.  See....the lyrics for "Up on the House Top" include ME.  ME ME ME.  "First comes the stocking of Scrappy Nan...."  Isn't that great!  I just couldn't cut up this one!
Anyhoo, I used the Musical Memories to cover the front and back of the Clipboard Wood; stamped Joe Snow on the Acrylic covers with black acrylic paint.  I made one set of punches on each cover - that's 6 holes (only one punch per cover - so easy and fast!).  And then bound these two pieces together with 6 loops of the owire.
Then take a 3X3 Post-it-Note pad and adhere to the inside of the album, onto the Clipboard Wood.  This photo looks like I have the regular ole yellow Post-it notes, but it's actually a pale green which works well for the holiday theme.  I guess Post-its like to look yellow no matter what.  I added a simple title with my Dymo labeler and a little bit of bling.  I tend to not overdo the embellishments for this type of project since they end up in people's purses or on their desks and get alot of use.  I don't want things falling off!  But I did add a wrap of tartan plaid fabric to keep Joe warm.
So I whipped out four of these last night, and mailed one off today.  The rest will be gifted soon.  Give this quickie stocking stuffer a try!
