Chevron Cardstock Altered Notebook

Recently, we celebrated both our little girls birthday. What I wanted to make was a little notebook where our guests could pen down their message for my little girls to ponder upon when they're older. 

As with every little girl's birthday, all things glittery is a must :) So what I did was, to alter a little book that you can get from any dollar store and bling up the front cover with the very lovely chevron cardstock. 

 Here's what my project looks like:


Some close-ups



Instructions:
1) Cut out a piece of chevron cardstock to cover the entire front page of the book leaving about 0.5 inches all around

2) Next, cut out a smaller piece of a different colour and use an edge punch to create a pretty border (you can also use one of the cutesy border stickers by Doodlebug ;))

3) Layer some stickers and make your own banner using the same chevron cardstock and add some bling and twine

Materials Used:
Item:4087 12x12 lily white chevron sugar coated cardstock
Item:4088 12x12 gray chevron sugar coated cardstock
Item:4078 12x12 bubblegum chevron sugar coated cardstock
Item:4185 sugar shoppe this & that sticker
Item:3208 doodle twine - bumblebee



Lunch Bag Keepsake Book

How many of you happy campers love to collect little keepsake from your vacations? whether it is twigs, leaves, little notes etc, we all like to keep hold of a little something from our trips. One thrifty way to store these are by tranforming the boring lunch bags into mini memoribilia books!

The pockets make it wonderful to store things and just by adding a little bit of patterned papers and tags on the page, the boring kraft colour is immediately transformed into something cute! Here's my project using the Happy Camper line

Grateful For You Canvas

Fall is just around the corner and with that, comes Thanksgiving! This year has been one with more downs than ups..from my father's health to many more unforeseen circumstances. But, all these have left me with so much to be thankful for. My father is on the road to recovery and the other matters have pretty much settled...all with God's grace, leaving me with lots of things to be thankful and grateful for.

So, in celebration of Thanksgiving, here's a little something I made as a deco piece for my home. A little altered canvas inspired by the very talented Jodi Wilton's Autumn Princess layout.

Without further ado, here's my canvas :)
