I created this altered notebook to give to her tomorrow and I wanted to share with you all. I have posted an altered notebook last year when my downline Deb signed up. This one is similar to the one before, just changed up the papers, ribbons and embellishments.
I thought I would share with you the first version of the notebook and then the 2nd and final version. After taking a photo of it to upload here, it looked like it was missing something. Maybe a flourish or something to fill in the space that was bugging me. Then I remembered that I had purchased the Primavera Rub-Ons from the Spring Idea Book! And there it was, the most perfect sized flourish AND a little scalloped edge for the "stacey's notes".
After adding rub-ons I even changed the background of my photo to chocolate.......silly I know.....but I think it made a bit of a difference in the way it photographed. Made it not so bright.....
If you don't know by now the name of the paper pack that I used, I will tell you once more...LOL It is Topstitch. The alphabet that I used is Cocktail and I LOVE it!! The only 2 things that cannot be purchased through CTMH are the spiral notebook and the punch that I used for the edge of the Crystal Blue paper. Everything else can be found and purchased on my website http://www.lovinscrappin.myctmh.com/.
The dimensions for my notebook are 8 x 10 1/2. I unwound the spirals from the original cover, measured the cover and cut my Chocolate Cardstock to match. I then lined up my Chocolate CS with the original cover and marked where all the holes are and punched them out. After that I decorated at will!
Thanks for stopping by!!
I hope that I have inspired you to create your own Altered Notebook!
Happy Scrappin' and Stampin'!!
