Brushed Birthday Rolodex - CTMH New Product Blog Hop



Brushed Birthday Rolodex....

How do you remember your friends and family members birthdays?? Today I am excited to share with you my Birthday Rolodex as part of the CTMH new product Annual Inspirations Blog Hop!! 

I have to say there are some birthdays I remember without thinking and others I just can't quite get there. This rolodex was decorated using the new Brushed paper pack which is so pretty!! 

I started off with this rolodex I purchased from Staples about a year and a half ago!! Yes, I had good intentions to get this done a long time ago...ha ha better late then never. 

 I cut pieces of card stock to adhere over the card file. I then used my CTMH scissors and cut around the outline of the card file. 

 You can see the covered card files in this picture. I made tags for the top of each card to designate the months. I cut the tags using the Artiste cricut cart and stamped in using the new CTMH inks Pixie, Canary and Glacier. 

 Here is a look at the tags and covered card files. 

 Here is a close up of the tag. I added these cute Aqua Dots to the Canary tags. 

 I added Bitty Sparkles to the Pixie tags. 

Here is a side view. I added Flamingo Dots to the Glacier tags and this cute bow from the Artiste cart. 
I really enjoyed making this Birthday Rolodex. I hope this helps me remember special moments so I can bless my friends and family with a special Birthday card :-)
