Pelican Inn Handbook

I made this small notebook/handbook to place in my little condo for family, friends and that rare ocassional renter.   Inside are pages that show:  rules governed by the HOA, phone numbers for us and emergency numbers and addresses, passwords, codes, favorite restaurants, things to do within a 10 - 30 minute drive, check-in and check-out procedures and coupons.

Being a card maker, I just HAD to put a little artwork on the front cover since it will be sitting out on a table.

Yup, another inexpensive die from Aliexpress.  I used a paper towel and rubbed different colors to get an achievable sunset or sunrise background.

took pics outside and everything looks blue...the paper is WHITE

  1. What a beautiful notebook bringing awareness to the surroundings and some nice things to do or participate in. I love the colors. [Bunny]

  2. I always loved gussying up notebooks for staff meetings. Your notebook is so pretty with your sunset silhouette against the bright white book!


  3. What a wonderful and beautiful welcome for your guests. Love all your work.

  4. Oh, my, Cely, what incredibly beautiful sunset colors!

  5. I love this idea. That should make people feel welcomed and it's so pretty I'd have it laying out. I love the colors and silhouette.
