Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick project I created from a mistake I made…YIKES! When I was cutting out the cover and spine from the Passport Diecut. I was not thinking and laid the whole sheet of Matboard over the diecut cutting out the pages from matboard too. Well, instead of throwing it away I decided I would use it to create a mini notebook cover and add my own pages to it.
I placed the notebook diecut at the fold in the Lace Embossing Folder and placed and embossed both sides of the notebook. I loaded three Art Daubers with Moonstone, Citronella and Scuba Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks and inked with each color over the outside cover of the notebook.
Either cut six lined papers or carefully remove six pages from a mini notebook. I choose to remove pages from a mini notebook. 😁 I lined up with holes of the cover, marked holes and punch with a small hole punch. I threaded white twine into needle and sewed inside pages to the cover and tied off on the inside.
I cut from white cardstock another notebook diecut from the Passport Diecut and cut in half. I cut another 1/4″ off each side before adhering both to the inside cover. Next I cut two pieces of aqua cardstock to 2 1/2″x3″ and emboss with the Lace Embossing Folder and cut both pockets at an angle and adhere to the inside cover.
I placed the Heart Cookie from the Cookies Clear Stamp onto an Acrylic Block and inked with Moonstone Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of White Cardstock. I fussy cut the heart out and lightly ink edges with Scuba Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink. I cut from Crinoline Fabric with the Journaling Cards, Heart Diecut using a Diecut Machine and inked one heart with Scuba Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and let dry. From patterned cardstock I cut the smallest Scalloped Oval from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Ovals large Diecuts using a diecut machine and adhered the Scalloped Oval Diecut, stamped heart, inked crinoline heart and two sequins to the front of the cover. I printed from the computer the word “NOTES”, cut out and ink edges with Scuba Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink before adhering underneath the hearts on the cover. I use a binder clip to keep notebook closed when not in use.
As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.
