Because You Never Know . . .


when you might misplace your Centro or Blackberry and need a hard copy of your contacts. That was the inspiration for this project I completed as one of my Provo Craft assignments for January. I used my Cricut Expression with deep cut housing/blade to cut this chipboard phone book using Wild Card, Fabulous Finds, and Street Sign Solution Cricut cartridges. I also used my black Cricut pen to draw the letters on the tabs. The cardstock used was from Close to My Heart (orange, white daisy, black, crystal blue, orchid bouquet, sweet leaf, sunny yellow, and baby pink). The patterned paper used was the new Fashion District by Me and My Big Ideas. To bind the book together, I used my Bind-it-All and black 1-inch Bind-it-All rings. This project was brainstormed using Cricut DesignStudio.

If you're interested in the cut file, here's the MediaFire link--enjoy! http://www.mediafire.com/?q0glmhe5njr

If you're interested in the contact entry template (jpg) that was printed on each cardstock page using photo-editing software, here's the MediaFire link--enjoy! http://www.mediafire.com/?njzmd3jjtkx
