A Note For You

While cleaning a few piles of papers up I ran across a finished oval from a previous project. I believe I used it either on some bath salts or it was some reed diffusers. I don't remember it seems so long ago that I made this. But obviously I liked it or I wouldn't have kept it.

Now what to do with it. I opened up one of my cupboards and there was this stack of paper. The paper was cut 3" x 5" and for what I don't know. Maybe it was some my sister gave me. She works in a print shop and takes home scraps and sometimes some of them trickle my way. I never refuse anything she gives me. Who knows when it would come in handy. Well today was that day. I took a some from the stack and headed over to the paper cutter and cut away. I cut a piece of chipboard for the backing and a piece of Bashful Blue for the front. The size of this notebook measures 2-1/2" x 2-3/4" not including the coil.

Materials I used to make this notebook:

Bashful Blue card stock
Stampin' Up! "All Holidays" set
Oval Punch
"Lots of Tags" die cut
Flower punch
Yellow Brad
Bashful Blue ink pad
RubiCoil punch machine
White coil

I sponged the edges of the oval and the die cut frame part.

I love it when I run across pieces like this and make a notebook with it. Sometimes it takes me a while to make a notebook but when you find parts all done, especially the ones that take longer to make it makes it feel like the whole thing only took a couple of minutes to do. Actually it only took a couple of minutes to put together. And honestly I don't think the oval was too bad to make either. Though I wouldn't want to make a bunch of them. I made quite a few a while back and I've moved on!!! I don't usually like to come back to an unfinished project. I don't know why but it's such an effort to do.

Anyway, you can view more of these notebooks here. Just keep scrolling down you'll see quite a few done with the RubiCoil machine.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
