Run to Your Restaurants Ladies

Run....do not walk to your favorite chain restaurants. Why do you ask? Well, you don't have to cook the meal or clean up after it. But the main reason is for the free coasters, of course. My family thought I was CERTIFIABLY INSANE when I started grabbing the piles of coasters at some restaurants we frequent: Bubba Gump's Shrimp Company, Outback, etc... I love using them to make cute little gifts. My sister-in-law is hostessing a workshop for me tonight. As a special little gift to her, I made this adorable little album for her 2007 Halloween pics. It was so easy to apply the Creepy Crawly designer paper, use the sanding blocks to remove any excess and decorate however I wanted. Of course, I always go back to "Batty for You" for any cute Halloween item.

Here is a peek at the inside of the album (or frame). It will look FABULOUS with black and white photos of my nieces and nephew!!!

Here are all the deets:

stamp sets: Batty for You

paper: Creepy Crawly designer paper, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard

ink: Basic Black

accessories: Cropodile, Mustard grosgrain ribbon, circle punches (1 1/4", 1 3/8" and scallop), dimensionals, sponges


Happy Stamping Everyone!!

Your not insane. I'm trying to save money and went to Chili's last month and they had about 8 coasters on the table so I took them home to use them for this sort of thing. I think it's a great idea!
