Hold on tight to your dreams…

Hi Everyone..

I altered three wee notebooks today..

I bought these a while back at Stampers Grove, they are great to alter and I also got to use that new kraft and black paper pad that I had bought from the Range last month.

I kept them very simple, they are a great size for sticking in your handbag/purse so didn’t want to embelish them too much

notebooks 2

I cut the paper to size which was 2.5″ x 4″

notebooks 3

then inked all round the edges of the books and the patterned paper in black archival ink

notebooks 4

I applied scortape all round the reverse side of the patterned paper and stuck to the front and back pages of the books

notebooks 5

Then I finished them off with some Tim Holtz small talk stickers

notebooks 6

A nice quick and easy project for a sunday morning 🙂

As always thank you for popping round

Merry Christmas Notebook

  • First of all I took a sheet of Stampin Up 12 x 12 patterned christmas paper and cut out 2 dirrerent sizes of the snowflake design

  • I then applied some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo glitter glue around the edge of the large snowflake, then the inside on the smaller snowflake and set them aside to dry.

  • The I cut a strip off the same paper, took a Fiskars border punch (treading water) and edged one side, took some grosgrain ribbon and tied a bow.

  • Once the glue had dried on the snowflakes it was ready to assemble ( I put the smaller snowflake on top of the radiator to get the curled up effect)

  • I adhered the snowflakes to the notepad and then stamped “Merry Christmas”
