More Notebooks


After seeing the notebooks I made for my husband, my brother-in-law asked me to make 25 of them for the mothers coming to a Mother's Day Breakfast he was hosting. The picture really does not do these justice. I just can't seem to get the lighting right. I made five each in five different designs. The paper is from My Mind's Eye. The flowers are from Michael's Bride Collection. I colored them with Copics. On the second notebook, I did not have a color that matched so I stamped it with a matching color ink. That one turned out to be my favorite. Each notebook was personalized with the recipient's name on the cover. I adhered the name to a Label One die cut in the same color as the cardstock. I did not take a picture of the completed project for privacy reasons. I wish I had made one for me, I just might have to go back and do that.

Have a wonderful weekend!
