50s Kitchen Blog Hop!

Welcome to my stop on the 50s Kitchen blog hop! Isn’t this collection soooo cute?! I had such a hard time deciding what to do for my project. I wanted to use EVERYTHING!

50s Kitchen Club Scrap Deluxe Kit
50s Kitchen Cat Clock Stencil
50s Kitchen Greetings to Go 
I made an Office Depot run for some mailing supplies and, of course, I had to look over the clearance rack while I waited in line. I found an “old school”  three ring binder address book that had a torn cover. BINGO! After a little “wheeling and dealing” with the manager, he discounted it to $2. I could work with that! A little recovering with the 50s Kitchen Lite papers, and an embellishment using some Ten Seconds Studios metal with the Kit Kat Klock stencil and voila! 

I love making something for myself that I will actually use! I am forever writing phone numbers down on pieces of paper that never make it to my Iphone contacts OR my phone isn’t charged when I need to look something up. To quote my sister, “sometimes ‘old school’ is mo betta!” 
The next stop on the hop is Cathy at The Artful Gamut. If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop click here. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What a great refresh! I, too, still rely heavily on my well-worn address book for addresses and phone numbers. In this age of technology, I haven't memorized a phone number in YEARS. Hmm…since my cover is looking a little shabby, it might be time for me to recover MY book!


  2. Score on the $2 bargain buy! You really made it into such a great find! I totally understand the lost sticky note thing. Old school is better sometimes! Have a great day Wendy!


  3. Awesome project,Wendy.Love that you used the metal for embellishing your phonebook!
    I am sure you love using it and willbe asked where you bought it! Great gift idea.
