Cute Right!

The hardest part was trying to Laminate cause I figured out I bought the wrong stuff but it still worked.  They make really lovely gifts to give to a friend or to have in your handbag (pocketbook)

  • Before I did the last thread through the hole I added a Gold Mini Tassel

  • I used a Gold Binder clip to hold it closed but I felt like it was incomplete

Petal Palette Stampin' Up!

  • I cut a strip and wrapped it around the Notebook and used Tear & Tape to seal it
  • Die cut a Gold Foil Scalloped Circle with the Layering Circle Framelits
  • Stamped the flower on Whisper White and cut it out with the Layering Circles
  • Added it to the belly band
  • Added another Binder Clip to the bottom and then I felt like it was complete
  • Optional but you can also stamp all the pages with a flower which I did cause I am funny like that. lol

    I’m sorry, I FEEL REALLY DUMB RIGHT NOW. so, I’m GOING TO ASK QUESTIONS. I’m sorry, forgot to turn off capitals. I had my shoulder replaced and can only type with one hand. I’ve never made a notebook before but, I really want to try. Why 2 different pieces of DSP? Is it possible you or someone else could make a video? I’ve read the instruction about 4 times and I still don’t know how to make it. Thank you for sharing

    • says:

      Hi Gloria, no question is dumb, I am thrilled you love this Notebook. I’d be more than happy to do a video for you. I will have it on Wed. I do videos Mon, Wed and Friday. I will be more than happy to do one for you. Thanks again for the interest! 🙂
