Darn it!

My counter went caput for some reason so I had to add a new one! And I'm sure I was close to 25000 hits. That may not seem like much to some, but for me that is a lot!

Now I have to start at 1 again :( Oh well! Be sure to visit lots to get that number up there again! lol

Until next time, happy stamping!

Covered Composition Book Tutorial

Today's tutorial is how to cover those plain Jane notebooks!

Supplies needed: Composition book, Tombow Multi Glue, designer paper and desired embellishments

 This is what the composition books look like.
 The glue. This glue is so awesome! You don't need very much and it will stick forever!
 Cut a piece of designer paper 7 1/2 x 11 inches. Put some glue just around the edges of the book. You don't need much. Place designer paper over the cover so it is just over the binding on the book. Make sure there is designer paper hanging over the top two edges and the one side edge.
 Flip the book over. Fold in the two corners and glue those down first. Remember, just a dab will do you!
 Fold up the edges. You can use your bone folder to make it easier. Glue these down. You will need to hold the paper for a couple seconds until the glue adheres.
 This is what it should look like
 Cut a piece of coordinating cardstock 7 x 9 1/4. You may want to measure in case yours is a bit different. I made a boo boo on this one. I thought the cardstock was brown in the light I was using. Sadly it was purple, but it still coordinates well I think! Put a thin line of glue all the way around the edges of the cardstock then put over the inside covers of the composition book. This will give the inside a finished look.
Decorate the outside as desired! With this one, I just tied ribbon all the way around the front cover and just left it as the butterflies really decorate the book enough.

Voila! You are done! 

Until next time, happy stamping!

Flirtatious Specialty Designer Paper - Card 4

This is the last card we did in my Flirtatious dsp class. I saw it out in blog land somewhere and of course can't remember where, so if it is yours please let me know so I can give credit where it is due!

All the ladies that came to class went home with a full pack of this lovely paper and four new ideas on how to use it!

Until next time, happy stamping!
