Avant-Garden, 2017 Sale-a-Brations, Notebooks, Weekend Project

I don't make these notebooks as often as I use to. I do make up a bunch with other images on them for the fall craft fairs and they always sell out. I "bill them" as a stocking stuffer  and they go like hotcakes!  They are practical and useful. A perfect stocking stuffer for females!!  I need to find some little kid images and make some for children too.  I suppose I could use the "Pretty Kitty" or "Barnyard Babies" sets that I have to make them for children.  As long as the image fits in the 2" x 2" white area.  I will look into that this weekend.

So, onto these notebooks.  I used Watermelon Wonder for my color.  I used a piece of cardstock for the front of the notebook and a 2" x 2" square of Whisper White to decorate the front.  I stamped the flower using Watermelon Wonder ink and Chocolate Chip ink for the center of the flower.  I used Pear Pizzazz for the leaves, some stamped directly from the ink pad and some with out inking the image up again. It gives it more color and some depth.  The "notes" is from a stamp I had made many years ago.  It keeps on stamping!!!

I use the Rubi Coil machine to punch my paper and to punch the cover and backing.  The backing I use is the cardboard found in the decorative papers.  I have a lot of it on hand!!  

I use to sell these in the web store (undecorated), just the cover but with the colors changing so much I couldn't keep up with the added work.  But if you are interested in them, you can email me.  My email address is located in the right side bar where it reads "Got a Question".  Click on that and you will see my email.  I don't like to put it in my posts, hackers can get at it pretty easy there. So I play on the cautionary side.  

These are fun gifts to give out.  The are also a fun make n take that really help promote the sale of a stamp set.  I love giving them as gifts.  Such a fun thing to give away.  I do wrap them in a clear cellophane when giving them as a gift or selling them at craft fairs.  I leave one open at the craft fair so people can see that it's just copier paper cut up for the inside.  

I have a link to my other notebooks.  Click here. Some are larger size ones, some are altered notebooks and in the mix you will see the smaller ones.  They measure 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" plus a little height on top from the spirals.  

I LOVE making these.  You may see more in the near future.  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Great idea for stocking stuffers, everyone at craft sales is always looking for something small and inexpensive...
