Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE notebooks!! It is a strange school supply attraction/obsession that I have. (I also have this same obsession with recipe books, day planners, and address books too, but we won't go into that right now. LOL) But, I really enjoy making my own. Here's a peek at the inside. I used sheets of chipboard and cut them to make my notebook a 5x7. The papers are October Afternoon (Fly a Kite) and the ribbon, buttons, and chipboard shapes are all from American Crafts (Dear Lizzy). I sanded the edges and then used Tim Holtz Distressing Ink (Vintage Photo) to give it that vintage/shabby look. I LOVE IT!!!! I used 7/8" O-Wire for my Bind-It-All and put it all together. The inside sheets are just notebook paper that I cut down.
I like having a little notebook nearby when I'm making my cards so that I can quickly jot down the supplies and Copic markers that I've used. Then when I'm ready to make a post on my blog, I just grab my notebook and I have all my info right there. This little notebook will be so fun to look at and use everyday!! Most of the supplies came from my friend Nana, who sent me some really yummy blog candy last week. When I opened the package I knew right away what I wanted to do with it. She has made some really cute notebooks recently and looking at her stuff inspired this little creation. (Not near as good as hers'....she does beautiful stitching on her projects - but I think she would like it.) Go take a look at her blog. You'll love it!!
Okay, I promised to share some vacation photo's from last week so here they are!!
Thanks for stopping by today!! :)
