Altered Composition Notebook




My darling friend Joanne, as I stated in my last post, is a new SU! demo! (AND she's doing a phenomenal job at it) She's hosting a 6 month project workshop and she taught us how to alter a composition notebook, you know...the black and white speckled, wide ruled, old school notebooks. I've ALWAYS loved them. I'm also a nerd for all things of an office supply nature, which is why this paper crafting art is so near and dear to my heart!!! So anyway, we're headed to a little BBQ of a fabulous Mommy-friend of mine this afternoon and besides bringing snacks and wine I wanted to bring a little something...extra. So I CASEd Jo's design (thanks lovey!) and here's my version!!
Basic Recipe:
Cardstock: SU! Old Olive, SU! Barely Banana, DP (I've got to check the brand)
Stamps: SU! Doodle That, Warmest Words
Ink: SU! Chocolate Chip, Versamark
Embellishments: SU! Grosgrain ribbon in Apricot, American Crafts ribbon - chocolate, American Crafts ribbon - teal (on edge of book), rhinestone brad - misc brand at JoAnn's (I actually think it's the house brand for JoAnn's)
