Father's Day is almost here...

I have had several requests for a Father's Day project that is relatively quick and easy to do.  This word book is something I designed last year and I wondered why people were not finding it and then I realized that I didn't have a project label for "Father's Day" in the extensive label list in the right side bar.

Someone asked me about the labels recently and the letter code system that I use.  Quite a while ago I realized that it was difficult to search for particular things on my blog and started a system of labelling my labels with a code.  I did quite a bit of reorganization to try to keep things in categories.  For example, "C" stands for "Cricut Cartridge" and by putting this in front of each cartridge name, all of the cartridges should appear in alphabetical order.  I am hoping to be able to finish up with the revised categories over the summer.  In the meanwhile, I have added a label for "H - Father's Day"  which means "Holiday - Father's Day."

This book was designed with Base Camp which is a great cartridge to use for basic word books.  It could be adapted quite easily to use another font cartridge if you don't have Base Camp.  I used papers from the DCWV Natural Stack - they have a great copper metallic finish on some sheets.

The original post with all of the assembly details and the free file to download can be found HERE.  There are also directions for making the card in the same post.

I hope you have a safe and crafty weekend!

  1. hmmm, labels. Wondered what that was for and how to use it. I'm new to blogging and haven't learned all the ins and outs yet. I guess if I start labeling now, I won't have to go back over everything like you're doing. Thanks for all your useful information.

  2. Love your idea about labels. I have been needing to do something bout mine but didn't know what. This is very helpful. Love the book. The papers are perfect. Checking out the how to. Thank you so much.
