Birthday Card Organiser - 3D Project

I'm sure I've said this before, but one of things that I have enjoyed best about joining Stampin' Up! is learning how to make great practical projects, both for myself and to give as gifts. This project was no exception. It's a birthday card organiser made from another designer series paper that is on sale this week, Raspberry Tart. I got the original idea from Leonie Schroder's blog and the instructions on how to make it can be found on SCS. It contains a perpetual calendar where I have written names and year of birth, and is fine for both bought and handmade cards and would make a great present! I put it together then took it along to my local stationery shop to get spiral bound.
Stamps: Lovely Letters, Priceless
Cardstock: Cameo Coral, Kraft, Whisper White, Raspberry Tart DSP
Ink: Rose Red
Accessories: Big Shot, Little Leaves Sizzlits Die, Curly Label Punch
The Raspberry Tart papers are just gorgeous, here are some other projects which I made using them:

My recently engaged friend commissioned me to create thank you cards to send after her engagement party. Her only request was for me to use Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise and Pink Passion. I came up with 7 samples as follows:The one she liked best was:
