{Purse Set - Giveaway!}

This is a purse set that I am making for my friends as a Christmas gift. It is super fun and super easy. It includes a two-year calendar/planner, a personalized notebook, and a fun brag book made with badge holders which are the perfect size for wallet-size photos. Since it is hooked with a ring, you can buy more badge holders if you need more room for pictures.

The instructions are simple. Just choose the paper that you want to use for embellishing, and trace and cut to size. Use a good adhesive to stick it all on, and you are good to go. I added ribbon book marks to the calendar and the notebook. If you do this, just make sure you glue the ribbon on before you put the paper on.

I have a real problem over-buying things like calendars, notebooks, papers...lets face it, I have a problem over-buying everything. Today, you benefit from my office supply hoarding problem. I have made 2 extra purse sets, and I am having a giveaway! To enter, post a comment on this blog entry by Sunday (11/1). I will draw the winner on Monday morning and post the 2 lucky winners here (I will personalize with the letter of your choice).

Kierste - surprise :)! Yours will be in the mail as soon as you tell me if you would like the brown or red set.

What you will need: A composition book, a pocket calendar with a clear plastic cover (Michaels - dollar bin), a pack of Badge Holders (office supply store or walmart), scrapbook paper and embellishments.

I live in Colorado and have spent the last two days in snow. Lots of snow! Thank you so much for the idea of the burlap stamp idea and the chalkboard frames. We did Halloween and name stamp projects for the entire extended family (15 kiddos) for Family Night. Thank you! Thank you! My sister is going to do the idea for Stake Girls Camp. You guys have no idea how many lives you touch! Thank you for taking the time (even with new little ones) to share! Have a great night! ~Laura

Really cute idea! I loved how it was done in the set. I have used the small composition books to make notebooks for my purse.
