Make It Monday #105

Hi everyone! Welcome back to our new linky party at Make It Monday #105 and more creative fun. This is the second week in a row that the design team has been free to create anything we like. Since I am on an organization kick I decided to follow up my Shopping Organizer with a Bill Organizer.

There's no tutorial for this project because I recycled an unused recipe file with deep accordion pockets. I layered patterned papers by October Afternoon & cardstock on the front. Twine, a vintage Jenni Bowlin button, a MS doily lace border punch and an outlined border created with glaze pens tie everything together. To sort my categories I die cut eight Keeping Tabs Die's by Taylored Expressions and labeled each with Cosmo Cricket's Tiny Type alpha's. To finish I die cut a Die-namics File Tab by My Favorite Things and stamped BILLS with You're My Type-Upper alpha's by Taylored Expressions's to record what the organizer is for. Two gingham ribbons, that were already attached, are used to keep it closed when not in use. :D Now I have another recycled "trash to treasure" project!

Ok, ready for my POTW? I chose this fabulous card by #44 Rina Fashionista. All of her hard work paid off because she created a masterpiece and I would have loved receiving this card as a little girl. It's fabulous! Click the link above to see how she created this beauty with two Tilda stamps and punches. Congrats Rina and thanks for sharing your talent with us at MIM!
