Mini photography notebooks

I just wanted to share these mini notebooks I made awhile ago. I took a photography course with my sister and her friend, and I wanted something small that would fit in my camera bag with all my "cheat sheets" (LOL)

I found these mini composition books at the Dollar store (had them in my stash for a LONGGGG time!!!!) and used an image from Dustin Pike.

I just covered them with paper, and added the digi image (coloured with Copics) and added a bit of crystal lacquer to the flash & lens of the camera!!!

I didn't want them too bulky or chunky so they'd fit in our camera bags easily!

Here's all 3 of them:

And here is a close up of mine:

I am entering this in the CREATIVE CARD CREW challenge (Anything Goes), PAPERTAKE WEEKLY (Anything Goes), SHOPPING OUR STASH (Birds, Bugs or Beasts), TRY IT ON TUESDAY (Monochrome), FOREVER FRIENDS (Animals), AND......lastly, the CRAZY CHALLENGE (Spots & Stripes). That's all I could find for this project!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge entry.....

Hello everyone!!! I finally got to use my cute TOMMY FOOTBALL from The Stamp Fairy. He's been coloured on my desk for weeks, and I was waiting for the perfect sketch for him! AND I think I found it!!!! The paper I used is Real Red (SU) and the DP is from GRADE SCHOOL (DCWV). The sentiment is an old SU stamp I've had for years, but LOVE!!!

I am entering this card in Sweet Sketch Wednesday. The great thing about this challenge, besides the awesome this week it is sponsored by The Stamp Fairy, so you could win some of these VERY cute, VERY addicting images that I LOVE so much!!!! I hope you'll head over there & check it out!!!

So, wish me luck!!!!

Simon Says.....let's see your MULTI-FOLD projects!

This week, our challenge for you is to use MULTI-FOLDS in your creation!!

I have made a double pocket fold card which I got from Splitcoast Stampers awhile ago (couldn't find it, but there are similar variations of this!) This card uses only 1 piece of 8.5 x 11" Designer paper and scraps for the tags!!! Easy Peasy!!!!

The DT are showcasing MY MINDS EYE & JILLIBEAN SOUP PAPERS this week and if you have them we would like to see them, but you don't HAVE to to join in :-)

Here is the card as a whole:

Here are the 2 tags that fit in the 2 pockets:

Here is the card and the tags so you can see it all:

Another of the front of the card (this card doesn't open, it is just the pockets & tags):

I have used KNEELING TILDA, from the Sweet Rainbow collection. I have coloured her with Copics, and used my circle Nestabilities. The flowers, ribbon & the fabric brad are from my stash!

The paper is MARY MARY "Happy Birthday" Grown Up papers from MY MIND'S EYE. It is such pretty paper and great quality - nice and thick, double sided, with a little texture! And there are SO many styles and colours to choose from at Simon Says Stamp! I LOVE working with it!!!

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore!! For fabulous tutorials, inspiration and candy you should keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp Blog too!!

Heidi and her staff have recently come from the CHA and have ordered loads of THE hottest new products. Keep an eye on the All New Just In Pages there are sure to be lots of fab new goodies arriving right now !!
