July Gossamer Blue....Summer notebook

Hey everyone, I'm back today after our big July 4th celebration.  While the kids are out picking up fireworks leftovers I thought I would sneak away to share a project.  Today I have a notebook to share that uses lots of items from the July Gossamer Blue kits.  The mason jar journaling card from Simple Stories was one of my favorite pieces this month.  I held it back and saved it for a fun notebook that I can use all Summer long.  
I embellished the top of the notebook with all kinds of fun tidbits from the kits.  Love those little resin flowers from Skipping 5 that are in the July Bits & Pieces Kit.  
I added lots of little bits and pieces to the journaling card including machine stitching, cork circle, enamel dots and the really fun puffy stickers from Skipping 5.  Those were definitely a favorite embellishment from the kits this month.  The geotag is from the July Main Kit and the ampersand is from the July Add-on Kit #2
I loved this fun little discovery of trimming down a die cut piece to fit the plastic flap on the notebook which I found at Target a while back.  
One more item I wanted to highlight from the July Gossamer Blue July Bits & Pieces Kit this month is the fun Elle's Studio stamp set.  It's perfect for Summer pages and I'm especially excited to keep it out on my desk so that I can add images to my Summer Project Life pages.  


Hope you enjoyed my project today & thank you to everyone for the nice comments on my Hero Arts blog hop project.  Now that the 4th is over, which included a big party and Josey's birthday celebration, I'm looking forward to tackling some of our Summer Bucket List items & planning our vacation to Colorado.  I'll be back all month long to share more Gossamer Blue July projects.  If you do Project Life, I have posts you'll especially love.  

Note:  If you signed up for my Sweet Summertime class you will be receiving a welcome email today.  From there you'll get all the information you need to log into the classroom and Flicker gallery.  My first post will be up on the 8th of July.  You can read all about the Sweet Summertime class here and registration is still open until July 10th.  You can sign up for class at this link.

Michelle,
Where did you find the round turquoise pin that says "red heart" summer?
My daugher's name is Summer and I would love to find one.

Thank you,
