The girls first trip to the library!

June 11 marks the girls first trip to the San Antonio Library (at least the local branch by our house) - where they received their first "real library cards" (I say first because if they are anything like their mother they will lose it about 20 times).

Our local branch is really cute and they have these great rocking chairs to sit in outside on the patio.

As we were leaving the girls posed for me and Zoe declared that they were now "LIBRARY GIRLS" - I see a great reason to make a t-shirt now :)

Currently I am in the process of unmounting my stamp sets from Stampin' Up!  I have come across a wonderful technique on Splitcoast using Aileen's Tack it Over and Over (I will go more over this in another post).

I ordered the Stamp Cases from Stampin' Up! but I wanted inserts for all of my stamps sets to match the inserts that Stampin' Up! provides for their new Clear Mount Stamps so I decided to get on My Digital Studio and create my own.  I plan on working out an organizational system that will color code my inserts (ie:  children - orange band, flowers - green band).  As you can probably tell, I have a little tweaking left to be done, but otherwise it matches well enough for me :)

Now that I have my template I am going to finish unmounting all of my stamps.  Then I will tackle making all of my inserts.  I am going to charge my hubby with the task of figuring out how I can get little images printed on the sides of the insert if that stamp set is not on My Digital Studio.
