This is something I created for my husband's birthday. He always has 'big ideas' percolating in his brain so I thought he could use another notebook for jotting down those sometimes fleeting thoughts. (He was the creator of the My Locker program and the Craft Club.) I started with a plain Studio G lined notebook (2 for $3) and embellished it with stamped (in white ink) Tim Holtz designs on black card stock. The images were then heat embossed with white embossing powder. For added interest I added some Tim Holtz metal pieces (spinner, memo pin, and fasteners). Since the spinner and memo pin had to be poked through the cover, I needed to cover up the inside of the notebook cover. (I broke off the fastener arms and glued the button part down.)
I used the coffee cup embosser to make the beige cover page and added the diagrammed coffee cup, thinking of you label, a mini calendar and washi tape. It was fun and easy creating this notebook. I plan to make many more using some of the other pretty choices of Studio G notebooks at HM Ben Franklin Crafts. Hope you'll do lots of crafty shopping at BFC in 2017!
