New checkbook cover

Hi everyone! Lisa K. here with another quick fun project with the November kit. A little over a year ago I made a checkbook cover with one of my Mosh Posh kits, and it was getting a little, um.... ratty! And since I loved the colors in this kit so much, I thought it might be time for another. It was a super simple little project- it took me 15 whole minutes, but it was fun and I love it- so here it goes.....

*You can buy these clear checkbook covers thru Scrappin' Sports and More (at least that's where I got mine).

1- I cut a piece of patterned paper approximately 6 1/4" x 6 3/4" for the background.

2- Then I cut a piece of a complimentary pp 1" x 6 1/4", inked and added to the top and bottom
of the 1st sheet.
3- I spelled out our name with stickers on a piece of cs and trace the letters (I used the
Oct. Afternoon letters from the add-ons).

4- Then I inked and adhered our name to the background paper.

5- And placed embellishment in front of our name.

THEN....... I flipped the paper UPSIDE DOWN so both sides are right side up when the cover is done :)

6- I added another 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" scrap piece of complimentart pp, inked and adhered it to the
"back" of the cover.
7- I then matted a small photo of each of our kids to a piece of cs, inked it and added to the back
cover, popped on a sticker and.....that's it!
