Off the Page with Wendy!

Hi everyone! Wendy here and today I'm sharing a decorated composition notebook.
 
I'm not sure about your kids, but  my kids are required to bring in a few composition notebooks each year. When they bring their stuff home at the end of the year, I'm always disappointed to see that they only used a few sheets of paper.
 
It seems like a waste to just throw the books away so I decided to cut the few used sheets of paper out and use the book for a design notebook. 


I cut sheets of Cracklin' Rose to size, stamped them, machine stitched them for detail and glued them down. I added a swirl of embossing paste and dusted it with copper glitter while it was still wet.


Supplies Used:
Cracklin' Rose
Powder Puff Chalk Inks
Stampendous stamps
Colored Pencils

Thanks so much for stopping on over today!
