Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful long Memorial Day weekend! I did! I got to spend time with my son, daughter in law and grandson…I even got to watch Baby O while his mom and dad went out for the evening…that was fun. 😊
Well, I would like to share my latest project with you all. Since I am in a swap on instagram I thought I would combined the swap with my project I created for Eileen Hull this month.
I started by applying Eileen’s newest product, Easy Cut Adhesive (Eileen’s etsy shop is out at the moment but I went a head and tagged her shop which can be found HERE) to the Chipboard and then I picked cardstock for both the outside and inside covers from Crate Paper Chasing Dreams Paper Pad. I peeled the backing from the adhesive sheet and placed the cardstock on the cover. I did the same for the inside cover too. I then placed on top of the Notebook Diecut and ran through the Diecut Machine. I cut the notebook in half at the “center fold” and then folded both of the small “flaps” down. I cut a two inch wide by five inch long piece of chipboard and then adhered the small flaps to either side of the 2″x5″ of chipboard. I wanted to add more journals to the notebook and this was the perfect solution to extending the spine.
I cut and adhered a smaller piece of chipboard to fit between the flaps on the spine.
I measured in 1/2 inch increments and marked the holes at the top and bottom of the spine.
I punched the holes in the top and bottom of the spine with a Crop-A-Dile. I cut cardstock and Easy Cut Adhesive to fit the spine. I applied the adhesive sheet to the cardstock and then placed on the spine. I punched over the holes again.
I decorated the cover with some past Crate Paper chipboard/embellishemnt pieces and fussy cut butterflies and leaves from one of the paper pads (retired).
Before adding elastic cording I added eyelets to the holes of the spine. I also added a mini envelope to the back cover. I only glued two of the sides down so notes and tags could be added behind the envelope.
I created a folder from a file folder and used an assortment of cardstock and stickers (Crate Paper) to decorate the cover.
I adhered pom pom trim to the inside edge and added sticky notes just in case my swap partner needs to jot down something.
This little notebook has blank pages in it and I thought it would be perfect to either draw or even do memory keeping in it. I decorated the cover with more cardstock and stickers.
The last two notebooks I bought in a pack of three at the Dollar Tree (you can find these notebooks in packs of two at Walmart). The size of these notebooks are 3.25″x4.5″.
Like the other notebook and folder I decorated both sides with patterned cardstock, stickers, trim and chipboard/diecuts.
I slid all the notebooks and folder underneath the elastic cording.
I love how the pom pom trim looks from the side of the notebook planner! 😍 Also be sure to hop on over to Eileen Hull’s blog and see what the Inspiration Team has been up to! You can find the posts for this month HERE and HERE.
