A couple more notebooks


It has been very quiet here lately hasn’t it?  We had friends from Australia here for twelve days and we had a wonderful time with them.  Now they have gone and things are slowly getting back to normal.  As school has started again I have prep and marking so stamping is not really getting a look in just yet.

I do have these two notebooks to share,  I made them to pop into the stockings of the two girls  who were staying with us.  The pink one on the right was for the nine year old and the brown for her 14 year old sister.  I bought the notebooks at Walmart; they are called “Fat Little Books”.  I did very little to decorate them.  The one on the right has one piece of designer paper plus the monogram and ribbon.  The brown one has two pieces of paper and a torn strip but again, super easy.

I hope to be back soon, with something new,  thanks for dropping in

Every Boxing Day we go and hang out with some  friends of ours at their Open House.  We enjoy meeting up with their extended family again and just having a relaxing time with them.  They have three girls ranging in age from ten to eighteen so I thought notebooks would be an appropriate gift.  The youngest is getting the pink one, she is a pretty in pink girl!

I carefully took off the covers as I had seen LeAnne do here then decorated each notebook with designer paper and ribbon.  I left a narrow border on each notebook which dictated the colours of paper I used.  After stamping the sentiments I distressed the edges and dragged them across the stamp pad.  All the ribbon is stuck on with sticky strip.  I repunched the holes with a single circle punch and then reassembled the notebooks.
