notebooks galore

One of the things that got me hooked into Papertrey was the cute notebooks that can be created using their Take Note stamp set.  If you know me, you know  that I am the queen of Things to Do.  I always have a list of To Do's for both work and personal stuff.  And an old school notebook is my medium of choice when it comes to jotting things down.  The “List” is so sacred to me that if I do something  that is not on my list, I jot it down and cross it off (I know, I need help!).  

Here are a few of them that I did for an upcoming craft show that the “Craftmates and Friends” will be joining next month.  More of that on another post :)


I used Papertrey Stamp (Take Note), dies (heart border, eyelet border, limitless layers), cardstock and ink.  I also used patterned paper from Crate Paper's Paperdoll Collection.

 And while on the topic of notebooks, I also did a mini book for our recent trip to Disneyworld.  I've always imagined Frances chasing  Disney characters asking them to sign on her book.  But alas, things do not always happen as expected.  So Disney has come and gone and we still have a clean, unsigned book.  All she just wanted to do was hold on to the book and not have anyone sign on it!  Oh well, I will just add pictures later and be okay with not having any autograph, sigh!

I used  Papertrey's Fabulous Frames die, modern alphabet die and some stickers I got from M's for the cover.

Here's a sampling of the inside of the mini book which I bound using my pink Zutter Bind It All tool.  I Mod Podged (yes, mod podge is also a verb!) some Crate patterned paper to a thick cardstock  to create the pages of my book.


I used the large Limitless Layers Oval die for create my photo  frames.

Thanks for stopping by!
