I really love altering these notebooks from the $1 bin! They're simple to do and you get a lot of bang for the buck! This one was already covered with a beautiful pink and blue floral pattern, which I've determined to be my favorite color combo at the moment. I chose to work with 'An Apple A Day' from Little Darlings. I colored her with Copic markers. I decided that she would be holding a little green apple because it coordinated better with the paper. Plus, how often do you see people coloring an apple green? I trimmed the spirals out with a bunch of ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon. They're all from the December Ribbon Club pack. They currently have a beautiful red/white pack available for Valentine's Day. I love these packs because you get a whole bunch of different ribbons at a very reasonable price. And, they always coordinate with a season or holiday. It's a great way to build your ribbon collection so that you've always got something on hand to use when needed.
The image and it's matte were cut using SB dies. I highlighted the scallops of the matte with some gems from my stash. The sentiment alongside the image is by A Muse Artstamps. I think it's perfect since this is a little notebook :-) The flowers and corner piece are from WOC.
Here's my 2nd project...
I've been wanting to color this little 'Snowy Friends' image for a long time now. It's from the Little Darlings - Winter 2011 Release. I colored the image with Copic markers. You can again see the pink and blue combo here :-) The beautiful bow is the Light Blue Organza ribbon in 1/4 inch from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I love how it looks run through the silver buckle. The dp's are from BoBunny 2010.
The image and matte were cut using SB dies. The buckle and corner piece are from WOC. I got the beautiful silver snowflake from Michaels. It's actually an ornament. The gems are from my stash.
Well, that's it for me today! Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you'll leave me a little comment to let me know that you were here. I really enjoy reading them :-)
Hugs to you my friends,
