Altered Notebook

I needed another notebook so I decided to alter one using CTMH's Dreamin' Level 2 paper packet.  The coordinating colors for this paper kit are Goldrush, Pacifica, Crystal Blue, and Honey.  I just LOVE the way it turned out.  Here's the first picture of my new notebook:

I just love the way it turned out!  The side strip with the small colored circles is actually the "zip border" strip at the top of the paper.  The small button circles are from the Dreamin' Stickease Adhesive Sheets. Here's a close-up of the side of the notebook:

Finally, I also used the new CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to embellish.  The scalloped tag underneath my quote is from page 62 called "< Oval5 >".  I cut it at 3" and then again at 4" to get the border around it.  I printed the quote with a font color to match the paper - Pacifica (R-48 G-120 B-157).

The last picture I have for you is of the rose flower on the bottom right of the notebook.  This was SO much fun to make with the cartridge.  I cut the image from page 68 - the "< Banner1 >" key - adding the font and shift buttons.  I then used Liquid Glass to glue the flower together.  Here's a close-up of the rose:

Isn't that adorable?!?  And it was so easy to make!
