How To Train a Husband...

I have a nephew who's getting married in a couple of months, and he and I have given each other a hard time for as long as I can remember. So, I thought I'd make a special little gift to give to his fiance next week at her bridal shower: How to Train a Husband

For the headings on each page, I used a product that I definitely could not live without. It's my *go to* for many projects. I used the JustRite Harmony Rectangular Stamper, and my NEW JustRite Vertical Stamper! There are no limits with these babies. Especially if you have the Upper and Lower case fonts. I used the Brayton, Trompe Script Uppercase and Lowercase, and the Times New Roman Uppercase Fonts. (I had to trim the lowercase Trompe Script a bit to get the letters closer, but it was really easy to do.)

Each *chipboard page* was decorated with Spriograph dp (Kaisercraft) and Iced, Frosted or Intense Teal, Intense Kiwi, Blush Red Dark, or Baby Blue Light (Prismatics).

The journaled tabs were all computer generated and included below is a picture with the tab inside and outside, and what's written on it.

I also used a variety of Nestabilities for each page: Labels I, Long Rectangles, Oval, Heart, Labels II, Curved Rectangles, and Circles.

Here's the front of this little booklet: The Rectangle Scallops Journaling Coasters are Maya Road.

This is the front. No tabs...*grin*





















The tab says: If he leaves the toothpaste cap off, or doesn't squeeze the tube right, soak the bristles in liquid soap. He'll never forget again.























The tab says: Cook only 2-3 times a week. That way he'll appreciate it more when you do cook.




















The tab says: Do not wash your hair or put on make-up for a whole week. He might as well get used to see the "real" you right off.





















The tab says: Don't wash inside out socks. When he runs out, he'll get the picture.





















The tab says: If he leaves the toilet seat up, feed him laxatives with a snack right before bed. Make sure the toilet seat is up. Need I say more?

Now, I haven't tried any of these husband training remedies. But if any of you do, let me know how it works....*grin*

Too funny! I really enjoyed this post (perhaps a little too much)! A wonderful idea that could have many themes- birthday, etc. Thanks for the inspiration!

Mothermark said...

Yeah right! I bet you have tried them! Snort! Does Ed have his own personal email? One that you can't sign in to? Whut? No reason!!!!

This is hilarious and its gonna be the hit of the shower! I must say you are giving her some wonderful advice even though I am like you and never, ever would resort to any of that! Except MAYBE the hair and makeup one! Giggle!

This is just fun, fun, fun! I would love to be a fly on the wall when all of the ladies just start cackling! Hee!

Charmaine (CharmWarm) said...

This really made me laugh this morning. I let DH off on the cooking one as I used to be a cook myself, and sometimes it's easier to do things yourself than let someone else do it. He gets takeways if he really has to.
But the socks, gosh I identified with that. What's with men taking their socks off so that they are always inside out. I love the colours and all those little tabs; what a wonderful interactive project.

Linda w said...
