Summer Post for CJToo

Welcome Blogger Friends - Today I'm posting a special link to Tracy over at CraftJunkieToo ( I'm on Tracy's Design Team and she has asked us to create a Summer Fun project (we pick). So I decided to make a fun little Portfolio and surprise someone back in Wisconsin with this great little gift. Here's my portfolio - It's just a 8-1/2" x 10" piece of cardstock....Scored in the middle and then on the long side - I've scored at 2-1/2" to create the pocket.
I added five different note cards to the right hand side pocket and five white envelopes to the left. (of course I couldn't just insert plan white envelopes - so I added a bit of pretty to the front of each envelope!
Here's how the notecards and envelopes look when you open this sweet little portfolio up.
My envelopes are decorated with matching SU ink.........and some fun stamps that I thought would add that special little something something to my cards.......
And here are my five little 4-1/4" x 5-3/8" note cards. I had a PDF file that is notebook paper - but you seriously could do the same thing with a packet of lined notebook paper and just cut the pages down to fit your note cards.
I then grabbed my Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler stamp set and added this rockin cool "Just a Note" stamp to the top of each of my note cards. I also added one of the Circle stamps from the Circle Circus stamp set from Stampin' Up! and created five adorable note cards for my portfolio.
I leave you with one last sample of another portfolio that I made. I actually got this project idea from my stamping friend Berta who taught us (SaddleBrooke Stampers) how to make this portfolio a couple weeks ago at a Saturday Fun Shop. THANKS Berta for this darling little treasure - I can't wait to make a couple more for my friends back in Wisconsin.
Hope you can join me tomorrow for the long waited release of the Flip Flop project for my Granddaughers......The flip flops turned out super cute and I can't wait to hear from my little girls on how they liked their flip flops. Until tomorrow.....Keep Living Your Dream!
