Notebooks

DD is off to college but she wanted me to decorated some notebooks for her. I got them at Target last year when they were having a clearance on some of their notebooks. I think I paid 9 cents for them so even with the paper it was way less than some of the already decorated ones.


This one is done with the stamp set queenie, a retired stamp set from the angel company. Really sad because now all stamps from the angel company are retired. It has gone out of business. I was mostly just a hobbiest but I loved the stamps. I have so many. This paper is from bo bunny and double sided. So I cut the paper and used both sides. The dress is paper pieced and then colored with copics. Each dress has a different color of stickles along the side.


This one is done with harvest bear from the angel company. I took the picture before it was really dry. I put a layer of ModPodge on all of them to protect the paper. I doodled around the edge of the paper and around the image which is colored with copics.


This is the last one I did. This image is from Me and Carrie Lou. I love these stamps, well there aren't too many that I don't love. lol. Paper is from bo bunny. The image is colored with copics. Before the Mod Podge dried I put yellow stickles in the center of the flowers.

Hope you enjoyed my creations and maybe have inspired you.

Peggie, those are definitely too cute to write in. I would be afraid I'd spoil them and they're so special. Strawberries, has Eve seen this? Watch out, she'll be lurking around your neighborhood hoping to steal this! Just a warning - don't make any covers with marshmallows or you're in REAL trouble. :)
