*IBS July Release: Happy Birthday Reminder

Hello again!!
Welcome to DAY THREE of Inspired by Stamping July Release Hop. 
I am super excited about today's release. 
For my project today, I am showcasing "TABS".

I finally had the time to make an altered gift. 
This book was created with purpose!!  Yes, purpose!!!  :) 
As I am getting older, I am getting more forgetful.
So I created this book that will help me remember my loved ones birthday. 

I used Happy Occasions and Whimsical Banners
Added some glitter glue to the banners and along with some clear skittles.
Love the pink crepe paper and newspaper punched butterfly. 

Once the book opens up, you will see the tabs, which are also loved with glitter glue.
I stamped the tabs to match the colors of the beautiful paper I used on the front and back cover.

Here is another shot, of all twelve tabs!!

Love these new stamps!!  Love..LOVE...LOVE!!
Perfect for writing in your on message or stamping one in. 

Here is a sneak peak of the two stamps being showcased today!
They are gorgeous and I can't wait for you to see them all.
