Note(s) Book

I am sure many of us are facing that Back To School season right now! Having two teenage boys in high school, it sure makes the mornings interesting! LOL! Today, I’d like to share a comp. book that I altered using ScraPerfect products

Note(s) Book by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock: Core'dinations; Patterned Paper: Authentique Paper (Curiosity Collection); Chalkstock and Cord: Canvas Corp.; Ink: Ranger (Distress Ink); Page Turn and Safety Pin: Creative Impression; Epoxy Pennants: Epiphany Crafts; Star Pin: Making Memories; Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (LF-161 Grand Labels One ; LF-126 Grand Squares , LF-003 Donna's Alphas and S4-092 Stars Five); Tools and Adhesive: ScraPerfect (The Perfect Cleaning Cloth, The Embellie Gellie and The Best Glue Ever); Other: Chalk, Foam Tape

First I covered the book with a combination of Authentique Paper’s Curiosity Collection and Core’dinations cardstock. I embossed my cardstock with Spellbinders M-Bossabilities A4- sized Dainty Dots Folder and used the Perfect Cleaning Cloth to wipe off the sanded mess! The Best Glue Ever made this process SO EASY and wrinkle-free!

Next I punch some pennants from Epiphany Crafts and lined them up to position where to “draw” my glue. I left the glue line to dry – LOVE that fine point tip! The Best Glue Ever dries clear but tacky. This tacky feature makes it easy to create glue rounds and HUGE glue rounds too! See the page turn? That embellie was an afterthought and was adhered with the Best Glue Ever – yes, you can use it on metal too!

After the cord was placed on the glue line, I used my Embellie Gellie and the Best Glue Ever to adhere my pennants just right!

Using chalkstock paper , I cut/embossed Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Grand Labels One and matted it with Grand Squares die cuts. I can erase the chalked Notes and put any subject on the cover! Here’s a second look at the book.

Well, great minds think alike! See our design team coordinator, Deborah Mahnken’s take on altering her comp. book – Minibook Covers post! LOVE what she did to hers!
