Connie-Sweet Pea Checkbook Cover

I have dipped into my Sweet Pea Stamps stash for
this project.  My old checkbook cover was
getting a little ragged looking so I gathered up some
 Sweet Pea Stamps
and made a new one.

I used some images from Plate #28 by
ching chou kuik and some pretty pearl swirls
by Recollections paired with some
papers by K and Company along with
my butterfly edger punch by Martha Stewart for one
side (top photo).

The bottom photo shows the other side of the cover with
the same paper pad (different design) and same butterfly punch.
On this side I used stamps from Plate #5
"Wanna Have Fun"
as well as some Stickles by Ranger
and small gems here and there.

I punched a border from one paper and adhered it to the other paper and
repeated for the other side for added contrast.

A simple but useful project yes?
Thanks for stopping by!

  2. great idea Connie, love the butterflies and the colors you chose are so pretty together

  3. Connie, this is amazing! So pretty and super useful. That would make check writing much more pleasant.

  4. Lovely work Connie, it would also be a wonderful gift with the Christmas season coming. I can think of lots of people who would love something handmade like that.
