More Notebooks!

This first notebook is made with the sketch for Katharina's Guest Designer contest. She has followed her dream and is opening up her own stamp company...what a lucky girl!! The company is called Whiff of Joy, and I've gotten a sneak peek on her blog of 2 of the stamps - and they are CUTE!!!! Katharina is so talented, I can't wait to see what she comes up with!!!

This is my submission for the Guest Designer contest. The image and saying were in with my order from Sweet n Sassy stamps (thanks Korin!!) - such a cute chickadee, so I had to use him!! The paper is Bella Rose by SU (will be in the new catty), Old Olive and Rose Red. The ribbon is Bravo Burgundy. I coloured the chickadee with gamsol and prismas. I made a matching pen and this set will be part of my reveal gift for my Secret Sister on SCS.


This mermaid notebook is a take on Katharina's sketch but I moved the sentiment because I wanted to add a bow. I got this Tilda image from someone awhile ago too, and have been on a "use it up" kick...so here I am, using up my images!! I love her long flowing hair...so pretty!!! Anyways, the paper is Wintergreen (old SU designer paper), and blue bayou. The sentiment is from Stamping Bella. The ribbon is SU Soft Sky. I added stickles to her wings and around the sentiment.

Here are 2 travel journals I made to sell at the Farmer's Market. The paper I used was from the clearance bin at Michaels a long time ago, and it was all travel related - for the life of me, I can't remember what it was called. I added a chipboard tag and stamped "My Trip" on it with Karen Foster Snap stamps, and sponged the sides.

Oh my goodness, Chris, these are all such terrific notebooks. I love them all! I love the bird notebook, but the second one is so precious, pretty pastels. Okay, my girly side is showing a bit. *wink*
