How many times have you been to Target or your favorite shops, strolling down the card aisle...and you see some cute ideas, fun color combos or neat card folds......and you have no notebook in your purse!? I hate it when that happens! That's why I love to have a few notebooks like these made up to stick in my purse or to have in my car to jot down ideas and notes. For this notebook, I used my Bind It All machine. I love that thing! If you don't have one and you like to make notebooks, it's a seriously great investment. Pretty cheap and easy to use!! You can purchase one and all the supplies at Eclectic Paperie (link at right).
The fun little stickers and tabs are all from Heartwarming Vintage Sticker set called *Office Daisy Dots* from Crafty Secrets. The little *notes* cut out with the angel and bird are from a Heartwarming Vintage booklet. I stamped a blue border along the top and bottom of the notebook, from the French Mail Clear Art Stamps set. Ribbons were added to the binding. If you haven't been to the Crafty Secrets website, you really should visit it soon. New projects are added to the photo gallery weekly and you can also view all the fun new products coming out soon.
Tip of the day: To make easy pages for the notebooks, simply use recipe/index cards. Walmart has a variety of sizes, starting at the 3" x 5" size I used and you can even get gihugic sets now too, lined or unlined. If you use a full pack, make sure to use the 1" binding, otherwise just take some cards out of the pack.
