Club Scrap "Trees" Blog Hop


Welcome to the Trees Blog Hop. 






If you arrived here from Cathy's blog you are in the right place. If you have lost your way you can return to Club Scrap Creates blog to see the full list of all the talented bloggers participating today.


We recently transitioned to new software at work. As I run a Pediatric Telemedicine program, without our software the program can not function. The transition has been challenging for my staff as they now need to log into three separate systems to complete the visits. They have been encountering different issues trying to complete visits and it is difficult to trouble shoot over the phone with them. I decided to create notebooks for them to log issues while out in the field. 




I wanted it to be a binder so pages could be added and removed. I also wanted it to be compact and not take up a lot of space. I used mat board from Club Scrap to create the two covers and spine. I found the perfect size for the covers in pounds of mat board I had purchased from Club Scrap.


The Trees paper made a beautiful notebook. But I also made four more with different Club Scrap kits. One is from Science, two are Serenity and the last is Sonoma. I had so much fun making them I didn't want to stop.




Thanks so much for stopping by. Your next stop on the hop is to Anne's Blog.


Wishing you a wonderfully creative day!
Anne Marie

Well done on those handmade books! They are gorgeous. It almost makes all of that trouble shooting more bearable, doesn't it? Lovely work.

Anne Marie, you know how impressed I always am by your projects, and these are no exception. The work day is always easier when you have your tools at hand AND they look great like your notebooks do. Thank you for showing us all the different "flavors" you created as well!

Lovely notebooks. They will be handy, practical and yet gorgeous to look at and carry around. I couldn't pick a favorite, they're all beautiful.

I'm sure that made the difficulties easier to bear! I'd hate to have to give the books back when it's all over...

Kay Williamson said...
