New Checkbook Covers

I finally got some time last night to work on altering a few things. My latest project is altered checkbook covers/ personal calendars. These were really easy and fun to make, and I think they'll be nice because you can always change out the insert to match the season, mood, etc. Anyways, I'm really happy with how they turned out. I'm planning to customize them to include names, favorite quotes, etc. and papers can include favorite colors, patterns, teams, etc.

My very first post

As many of you know, I've spent the last month and a half coming up with a plan to start my own custom scrapbooking business. To this point, I've created an Etsy store, advertised a few free places online like BBC's Bargain Hunters Board (Market Yourself Monday) and craigslist, and participated in a craft show to get my name out there. I've worked on business cards, a few flyers, and told my friends and family what my goals are for this. I recently signed up to become a Memory Works consultant, too, so I'm now able to get great products to use at a discount for my projects. Whew! It's been a busy month and a half!

I'm still very excited about the possibilities for this, especially w/ the holiday season here. Now, I just need to come up with a few creative marketing ideas for holiday gift-giving of albums....
