Club Scrap Blog Hop: Office Space

Welcome to my part in the 

I hope you arrived here from
Jennifer's Blog.

What to make I thought?!
Then one of my collegues at work asked me
if I had a card for the birthday of another  collegue.
I remembered I once made a birthday book, where
you add cards, so you always have some ready.
Idea was born and I looked for the instructions.
I found them on Splitcoaststampers HERE.
For this birthday book you need 6 12x12 inch cardstock
and 2 pieces of 6 x 73/4 inch pieces of cardstock.
On Splitcoaststampers you find perfect folding instructions.

Here is my book:
Andyou see it also already has cards in it.
I am ready for my colllegues!
 Not on all, but on some pages I added
some stamping for decoration. Not on all, for I
found that too busy.
I used my zutter for the binding of the book.
Below you see all the pages I made.
If you click on the photo, you will see a larger version.

Here are all the pages:

Now I wanted to share with you
how I made 8 cards in a jiffy.

I took one of the 8,5 x 11 inch pieces of paper
and stamped some of the Office Space stamps at random.
Yes, I used one of the printed papers and I used 
matchin inkpads for stamping.

I drew up this template for cutting the stamped cardstock.

Here you see it cut op.

I took some white papers and cut 8 cards, folded
them and spread out all the parts
of the stamped cardstock.

Here you see the finished cards. I added another color
 of cardstock to the cards and stamped some sentiments here and there.
Little flower embellishments from my stash.

Well, this was it from me.
I guess you need some more inspiration.
It is on 

If for some reason you loose your way,
you can alsways go back to the Club Scrap Blog.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day.
