Just a Note
I'm always looking for projects that aren't too complicated that I can make with my stamps in addition to cards. When I saw Erin's PTI MIM video I immediately wanted to try making a little notebook. I've seen lots of darling ones in blogland & I had an idea of what I wanted to do. However, my first try didn't work since I forgot to allow for the fact that the decorative paper making the back must attach to the top of the front. I knew with my schedule I had to get it made now or probably would miss the deadline. Finally decided to keep it simple & I went with just white, blue & silver. The stamp sets are Quilled Elegance, Tiny Tags & Snowflake Flurries. My inks are Memento Nautical Blue & Summer Sky & Encore Ultimate Metallic Silver.
I used light colored pages so writing on them with blue or black would show up easily. I couldn't find printed paper that worked, so made my own. I used Wink of Stella on the front image for a bit of sparkle & a watercolor look as it mixed with the ink. My sis loves blue & silver so probably will give it to her. Still hope to get my first idea to work when I have more time. Enjoy your weekend & thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
