My Favorite Notebook

I saw this card a while back on Splitcoast by Marianne George and I fell in love with it. I thought it would be cute as a notebook and here it is. I used the Faux Typewriter Keys Technique to make the lettering. It's a bit difficult to read but the letters spell out "NOTES." I use the "Alphabits" set by Stampin' Up! The background was done with white embossing powder and the "Floral" background stamp. Lots of paper piercing with the Mat Pack and drawing in the lines with the gel pen. It was a bit time consuming but a very fun notebook to make. The latch closed with a magnet. I have now found magnet sheets that are much thinner than the magnets I was getting at Michael's! They work better with projects like this.

Here is the link to Marianne's card http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=310570&cat=4647

If you'd like to know how to do the Faux Typewriter keys you need to go back to my 2006 post of November 14th. I explain how to do them there. They are a lot of fun to do! I am planning on making a few more of these in more of the pastel colors!

Thank you for looking!
