Bella Rose Card Organizer...

This is the class I offered my customers for September. For a $15 charge, they got a full pack of the Bella Rose DSP, wire binding for the book, the RSVP pens filled with matching paper (see this hanging by ribbon off the book), ribbon, calendar pages, and all the cardstock needed for the project. I have already held one of the two classes, and everyone had a great time making these, although I must admit part of the fun was chatting with the girls, drinking coffee, and eating Terry's incredible homemade coffee cake. Here is a view of the inside front cover, I created stamp pockets, which perfectly hold a book of stamps to have on hand for mailing cards....
And next is a view of the inside cover and front calendar page. Each page uses a different paper from the Bella Rose DSP collection and the calendar pages are all stamped to match. Feel free to contact me if you want a soft copy of my Excel Spreadsheet where I created these. I searched everywhere and never found one that I liked, so I made my own. I am happy to share:)
Everyone had to option of adding extra pages for cards that were not for birthdays/anniversaries which is what the month pages are for. I simply typed up the words in font that matched the month names, and punched them out to label these pages. There is THANKS, GET WELL, SYMPATHY/THINKING OF YOU, and the last page says MISC CARDS.
That's it for this one. Hope you enjoy it. If you want more info on this, feel free to leave a post/comment and I will get back to you!


  1. Oh wow this is gorgeous!! I have been resisting this paper because I have SO much pp already but I think I will cave soon.

  2. What a great idea! I can't wait to try this out on my group!

  3. This is beautiful! The DSP is one of my favorites.
