This is the beginning of our hop. Here is my creation using this versatile stamp set:
As you can see I altered another notebook. I don't know about you but there are many, many nights when I either can't fall asleep or I wake up and mind is racing. Then I find myself wanting to write down what I'm thinking and I know that until I do something I won't be able to fall asleep. At the beginning of this month, I decided to leave a notebook on the nightstand on the side of my bed so that when I couldn't stop my brain, I had somewhere to write down my thoughts -- whatever they were! I also thought it would be nice to have it all in one place so that I could refer it to later.
I finally decided that the ugly black and white composition book was just not working for me so I altered it! I used a retired Close to My Heart paper called Typeset. I then used our Artiste and Art Philosophy Cricut cartridges to help me make the "title" and the side tabs. I cut the tabs using the Art Philosophy. The image is on page 58, D8, Layer, < Tab2 > cut at 3/4" x 2". I used the Artiste to cut out the front rectangles. The image is on page 47, B7, 3D Object, < u > cut at 2 1/2", 2 3/4", and 3".
All of the stamped images came from our November Stamp of the Month - Capture the Date. I have found so many different uses for this stamp set. Here's a link to a card I made previously using this stamp set - click here.
