Stamp n' Scraps Featured Aloha Blogger - Joy - Check Book Cover

Good Morning Friends!  Well. . .today is "Featured Aloha Blogger" at "Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii".  This week Joy of "A Place to be Me" is featured.  Joy is not only a wonderful and talented crafter, she's also a very sweet and generous person.

I decided to CASE a project she posted on her blog last week.  The project was a "checkbook cover".  I had an empty plastic check book cover in a scrap bin for such a long time, a few years I have to admit.  I always intended to design an insert for it but never was motivated to do it so there it sat in the bin waiting for me to do something with it one day.  Well, it was perfect timing. . .I saw Joy's checkbook covers and decided this was the time to do it!

I'm really not sure where I bought the blank plastic check book cover.  You can use one that the bank gave you for your checks.  Just replace the insert with one you create yourself.  Very simple.  The image is a CC Design stamp called "Heidi" and you can find it at Lttle C's. She has a bunch of cute CC Design stamps on her blog.  They are so cute.

Anyway, what are your plans for this weekend?  My husband pulled a muscle in his neck and can't move around so basically, I won't be able to do anything this weekend.  Actually my job is to keep the cat from jumping on him when he is laying down.  LOL! 

Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!

Card Details:

Stamps:  CC Design Heidi
Paper:  K&Co designer paper
Ink:  Copic Markers
Accessories:  Basic Basic ribbon, Buttons, Coluzzle Oval template, Fiskar Scallop Scissors

Hey there :)
My favorite season of the entire year is Fall but since here in Hawaii we don't do the whole color changing thing (so sad), your colors on this adorable checkbook cover are doing an awesome job of warming my heart!!

Gorgeous work Maria. What a fun checkbook cover to have. It would just make you smile every time you pulled it out of your purse. I am sure it would be a great conversation starter or way to promote your work.
