Father's Day Mileage Notebook




When I saw this Mileage notebook on My Creative Corner I just knew it would be the perfect gift for my Father. He is a Snow Bird and has always tracked mileage, how perfect could you get. So Classic Pickups was a must have set before it goes bye bye, never thought I would like a set like this 'til I saw what was made with it now I it is another set I can't seem to put down.

Here is my version of the mileage notebook and how I made it. The Notebook was purchased from My Creative Corner she is really good with these and they ship fast you need to give them a try it measured 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 I altered it down to 4 1/4 to 5 1/4 to fit the document I printed out. On the cover I cut Chocolate Chip then Artichoke and a strip of Not Quite Navy, the Classic Pickup is stamped in chocolate Chip and mounted on colored Card stock the sentiment is also stamped in C.C.. (The Ribbon was from my Sister and I am not sure of the name.)
For the inside I modified a program in Microsoft works and then I made a center pocket out of C.C. card stock (like the Card Keeper pocket, smaller version) and again used Artichoke to mount a second layer. I stamped another classic pickup in C.C. and mounted in on colored card stock added the sentiment and ribbon and the pocket was done ready to hold all of the gas receipts.
This was a notebook that I took apart so I put back in some of the paper and stamped them in the lower right hand corner with the sentiment then stacked up the paper and put it back together. Wala I have my Father's day gift ready to go, I also plan on putting a Gas Card in the front cover.
