Default MAY09VSNL ~ May 16,2009 ~ 7PM EDT ~ Keeping Score ~ CHAT THREAD

Title: Keeping Score
Hostess: Kim (nutsymuhl)
Keyword: MAY09VSNL
Date: May 16th, 2009
Time: 7:00 PM EDT


When you gamble, do you just blow all your money or do you give yourself a set amount to lose? Did you win at Texas Hold 'Em or lose at the slots? You need to KEEP SCORE of your winnings so you know what you have.

My challenge to you is to create a Jr. Legal Padfolio using the attached template, created by the Fantabulous Julie Ebersole (JulieHRR).

Decorate it in ANY way you want to, just use the dimensions provided on the template.

**Below is my sample of the outside of the padfolio. In the next post I'll show what the inside looks like. **
UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:
1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EDT ON TUESDAY MAY 19th
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword (MAY09VSNPRE1) when uploading your image.
4. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
5. It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in the chat thread just in case the gallery is being testy.


You can find the gallery for this challenge HERE

Thanks, Stacy!

They really are simple to make. Once you learn, you'll be making TONS of them for gifts!

This is great.

If I don't have a pad - meant to shop yesterday afternoon but got caught up at my LSS and forgot to go to the dollar store - can I just make one, and add the pad later?

Oh my, I got a steno pad, not a jr legal pad. Because of the spiral on the steno pad this wont work, but, like you mentioned, this would make a great gift, so, I plan to make this!

You'll have to go get a Jr Legal Pad tonight or tomorrow.

Remember everyone, you have until Tues 10pm to upload your creations, so if you don't make one tonight, you a few days.

Searching the house for the Jr legal pad... I chopped them all in 1/2 so I could make mini notepads... but doesn't help me now. Shall I get DH to tape all the pages back together??

I bet you smart crafters can come up with an adaptation that would let those steno pads work just fine! Adhere the flap to the back of the steno pad, cut it a little short of the spirals. Then, dress up the spirals with lots of ribbons!

If you don't have a Jr Legal Pad, you can just make the shell of the padfolio and not put the pad in until you buy one!

Kim - would you accept a steno pad alteration as a valid project?

Everyone - Father's day's coming up. Wouldn't this be ideal to keep in his car too? For notes, service record, etc.

Wicked cute, Kim! I'll try to pick up a pad tomorrow. Or maybe I have some stashed. I'll have to check. Is is sad that I have no idea what I've already bought to alter? Oh well. Great challenge!
