Hi everyone, I’m back today with a vintage notebook. I truly love the whole vintage, distressed, shabby chic look and these papers from Glitz – French Kiss collection are absolutely perfect. I selected the pretty bird image from their ‘Whatnots’ and peeking behind this image is one of their ‘Paper Layers’.
To create the notebook I used some Spellbinders™ die templates – Grand Rectangles and Rose Creations. I covered Nestaboard, created inner pages, inserted a binding wire and distressed the edges. I then began to decorate the front cover. To create a dimensional frame for the pretty bird image I used the very useful 3D Foam Squares.
I also chose to use Kraft Photo Corners on the frame, inked lightly – again it adds to that pretty vintage look.
My rose flowers are fixed in place with Mounting Squares. These are initially repositionable – ideal for when I’m trying to make my mind up as to where I want to place my flowers!
The finished notebook, I like it so much I’m reluctant to write in it!
