Mother's Day cards and another mini book

Mother's day cards. I really like these. Maybe I'm finally getting the hang of card making.

This one will go with the keepsake box I made for my mom. I used the DCWV La Creme stack. All the papers are black and cream, some with flocking like this floral piece. Letters are QK Chicago alphabet.

This is my first attempt at ribbon flowers and I think it came out pretty good. This is the sewing kind where you use a running stitch on one side of the ribbon and pull the thread to gather. Pretty.
And this one is for Randy's mom. The lighting is awful, sorry. These papers are also DCWV, from the Latte stack. Letters are QK new English Rose alphabet, and butterflies are Cottage Cutz.

Sewing planner for my daughter. These papers are so cute for this project. It's the Material Girl collection by Cosmo Cricket. Super cute vintage look sewing-related prints. I used QK Holiday and Chicago alphas for the letters and the cover is reinforced with QK plastic sheets. These are really nice for making sturdy covers and divider pages. It's not at all thin or flimsy film, it's quite strong. Thimble charm, ribbons and buttons embellish the binding. This is the largest sketchbook die in the newest QK release which fits the 3/8" Bind it All o-wires exactly.

Back cover, also reinforced with the plastic.
Inside pockets for notes or coupons
Two sections have index card pages so she can jot down notes and measurements on the ruled side and sketch ideas on the back.

and the last section is notebook paper with all perforated pages so she can tear out a list or take notes with her when she shops.
