Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop!

Once again we are bouncing with the new Stamp of the Month! Hopefully you just came from Cindy Leek's blog. If not, keep going and you'll loop around.
I loved this stamp set when I saw it but froze when it was time to make something with it! I incorporated several stamp sets to create this fun card. Hope you like it!

Using a Coluzzle File Folder template, I cut out a card in the shape of a file folder. I created the Checklist from Checklist Stamp Set. I still need to come up with more things to add to my lists. The Event list was made by Journaling Jots Stamp Set. The coffee stain complients of Coffee Stain Stamp Set. The file folder label and words are from Confidential Stamp Set.
The Today: card and the binder clips are from the Stamp of the Month as well as the date hash marks on the Today: card. I stamped the binder clips on the inside too.

Here inside is a picture of my baby and her first School Photo! The date stamp and numbers under her photo is from the Stamp of the Month as well as the 3 ring border. The lines are from Journaling Jots. I thought this would be a great way to send photos to the family.
The letters are The Works Alphabet Stamp Set. You can't tell by the photos, but I sponged chocolate ink around all the cards and the edges of the file folder giving it a distressed look. I also bent up the corners of the folder and the pealed back the label on the tab a little to distress it. I creased the corners and sponged in the folds to help age it.

I tried to make it like a busy file folder - let me know if it worked. Also, what to list on the front cards? Any suggestions?

Now jump on over to Shelia Bennett's blog to see what she created with this stamp set!
