Now, stop laughing! Oh, well, go ahead. Laugh until you pop! It is funny! I made a card using American Crafts printed paper and Stampin' Up cardstock. Then I "stamped" my thumbprints onto some white paper, and drew "bird parts" on them. They really are a bit of a hoot! (bad pun intended)
The sentiment is an Inkadinkado stamp. My teen son thought I wrote it in "kid handwriting" and was so proud of me. I had to tell him that, alas, I CHEATED and used a stamp! I also used a scrap of ribbon left over from an old CK greeting card kit. Now that's recycling!
So since I am on a "use what's on hand" kick, here is another project for you. I decided I wanted to make a notebook to keep on my computer desk so that I can jot down challenges I enter, design teams I try out for, projects I submit, and so on. I had a pre-made notebook on the shelf that was perfect, but it was sort of plain and boring. I dragged it out and covered it with some Graphic 45 paper, but then got stuck thinking of what to put on the cover. Then I had the idea to recycle this card I made when I was the featured designer for Card Sketch a Day a while back.
Now, I have a snazzy notebook in which to write all my "hey, Gloria don't forget about..." type things! Here is a close-up of the sentiment. This is one of my favorite stamps. (Stampin' Up)
Here is a side view of the tabs and pockets. I covered each pocket with some vintage-looking paper.
