Friday is here again, can you believe how fast this year is going? It seems like it was just Christmas! Especially with the snowfall we had last week. You can keep the snow, I am so ready for sunshine!
This week I am sharing a Spring inspired "To Do" book. I took a simple store bought notebook and covered it with pretty, springy papers from the Pebbles Family Ties collection. I love all of the prints in this collection and had a tough time choosing which ones to use.
I started by cutting all the pieces to size (this would be determined by the size of your notebook) and then I applied Tombow Mono Multi onto the front cover and spread it thinly using an old gift card and then applied the papers for the cover. I also used Mono Multi for the spine, I just held it for about a count of 10 and it was nice and secure. I stamped the "To Do" and Frame from the Gina K. Designs Organize It! Stamp TV Kit in some Memento Rich Cocoa ink and cut it out with an oval die (a punch would work too!) I added a yellow scallop behind the To Do panel using some Tombow Mono Adhesive Dots and then popped it up using Tombow Foam Tabs. For the little blue bird on the top right of the notebook, I covered her in Tombow Mono Aqua and sprinkled some Warm Highlight glitter from Elizabeth Craft Designs to make her sparkle.
I used scraps of paper for the pen. Just a little of the Tombow Mono Adhesive Dots to the back of each of the pieces held it nicely around the pen.
If you make a notebook, come on back and leave me a comment with a link to your project as I would love to check it out!
