Hi there folks,
How are you all? Me I am fine, busy busy trying to keep ahead of the game with all that we have got planned for the summer. I am hoping the weather will hold over the next few weeks as we will be travelling all over. I am off to Scotland next week to see my mammy for the week. When we get back from there we are off to Southport to see other grandma, then we are off to Skegvagas ! My girls love it there even though it is not too far from us we still have to stay on site at Butlins. Think I will have to take some craft supplies along.
What do you take on Holiday? If Anything?
Anyway you are not here to listen to my ramblings. I made these little notebooks albeit slightly larger ones for my team mates when we went to Stampin’ Up’ On Stage in Brussels last year. I make them all the time as gifts as they are quick and simple.
The best bit about them is you can use the chipboard that you get in Stampin’ Up! packaging like : to keep the DSP flat the grey board behind the pretty paper, or there is a big bit in the Oh Happy Day Card kit, it is in a lot of their packaging. So recycling is always good.
I am so sorry that the video I made seems a bit too much edited, The computer said NO when I wanted to upload it at 22 mins long (that is how long it took originally to make) so I had to get that down to under 15 mins!! Which is a good thing really so you don’t have to listen to my waffle!! Anyway on to what you need…..
All measurements in Inches
My notebook measured 3 1/4 x 4 inches. ( I used the ones from Wilko’s)
I used 1 sheet of Pop of Pink Designer DSP.(I did not use the full sheet)
Cut 1 piece at 9 3/4″ x 6″ . Score this on 9 3/4″ side at 3/4″ and also on the 6″ side at 3/4″
Cut 1 piece 4 1/4 ” x 3 1/2 ”
Cut one piece at 3 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ scored on 3 3/4″ side at 1/2″
Cut one piece at 1 1/2″x 4 1/4
Finally cut one piece at 2″ x 3 1/2 (pink pocket)
Cut 2 pieces at 3 3/4″ x 4 1/2″
Cut 1 piece at 1/2″ x 4 1/2 (spine)
Once you have all your pieces cut you can watch through the video.
****( I do say on the video that the spine is 1 1/2 ” x 4 1/2 this is a mistake ) sorry.***
I have a few close ups for you
This is where the note book will slot in. you need to pinch the top inwards to give you the gaping effect. The same with the pocket below
And here it is on the inside
I hope you liked my project today. I used the Layering love stamp set for the greeting on the front. I love this sentiment it is so apt in so many things. I hope you manage to giving this notebook a try as they are great to make just for that little present and they look great.
If you wanted to hang a pen in the middle of this notebook you can easily achieve this. Let me know if you would like to see how and I will do a quick video on it.
Thanks so much for your company, I have enjoyed crafting with you today. I will catch up with you on Monday with another little project or the how to on adding a pen!!
Happy Crafting everyone, whatever you may be making. Mandy 😘
