I also wanted to show all of these die-hard scrapbookers how they can actually get caught up on their scrapbooking with our new Memory Keeping Organizational System (called Project Life)....

This first table treat is an envelope with sticky notes inside - made with the Envelope Punch Board!  Just pick the size stickies you want to use, then refer to the chart on the Envelope Punch Board to make an envelope that holds them perfectly!  This one is a great size (stickies are 3" square) to keep in your purse or car, for those times when you need to jot down a quick note!
