Card Makings with and Esselte Products

A package full of office supplies from landed on my doorstep the other day.
Wait until you see what office supply products I received...
I used one of the products to make these cute cards.

Sorry, you'll have to wait until the end to see just what office supply product I used...
(or you could always just scroll down to the end... no wait-- I have some cool things to show you!)

First up, the Ampad Project Planner.
This particular project planner benefits breast cancer research and education.
  A portion of the profits are donated with each purchase.
The cover is decorated in fun pink and white stripes.

Each page has numbered spaces with a heading space.
Below the heading is a notes section and an action column.
I'm a big fan of the action column...
I love writing little notes to myself about what I need to do!

The pages of the notebook are very thin and light, but you can still write on the back of each page.
I really like the metal spiral binding,
it makes it so easy to fold the book back and just write on the top page.

You're not going to believe this next product--why didn't they develop this years ago?
It's a standard size file folder with 3 pockets!
How cool is this?  Way cool!
The sections are closed on two sides to prevent papers from falling out.

How great would these divided file folders work at planning scrapbook pages?
Take a look at this.

I can organize out my entire scrapbook page. 
Coordinated papers in the first pocket,
stickers and rub ons in the second pocket and pictures in the 3rd pocket.
I'm thinking I need a ton of these file folders!

OK!  Are you ready to see this 'secret' product I used in my card makings? 
Of course you's the Esselte Copysafe File Jacket.

It's a double-sided dotted transparency style folder. 
It's designed to 'hide' important documents, yet allow you to see what's inside.

The CopySafe file folder makes it pretty difficult to read what's inside. 
Perfect for keeping a document private, but really, if you wanted a document private, wouldn't you put it in a sealed envelope?

If my kids saw this with a document inside, it would be a tempting invitation TO look at it.
Sooooo...instead of using it as intended, I cut the folder up!

 I simply used a rectangle piece of the folder and adhered it to a blank card.
I added a dotted ribbon and a stamped saying.  Quick and easy.

Can't you see some spy-themed or game night invites being made with these? 
They would be perfect for Halloween with eyes on them!  Oh, the possibilities!
Remember to head on over to for all you office supply needs.
