Fun little notebook....

The sunshine has been soooooooo welcome here, finally! (sorry to my southern hemi friends!) It's been tough to spend time indoors, even for fun endeavors!
Regardless, I needed to make a little thank you gift for my neighbor who had a sleep-over with Hadley's beta fish(Colorful Sparky is her name- the fish, not the neighbor) while we were gone.
She's a big-time sewing gal and also just got her real estate license- thought a fun notebook may be of use for her (her name is Susan, hence the 'S')

PTI vintage cream cardstock, October Afternoon pp, the Girls' Paperie stamps. The 'S' is cut with the storybook cart on my cricut- and the inks... PTI smokey shadow, versafine black, and I'm too tired to look at what the blue is- but it's a versamagic chalk....

What do you think of the closure? Another fine use for eyelets! I inked the edges of the 1/2" punched circle with that same blue I'm too lazy to check for you.

I left the messy strings on purpose. I'm growing, what can I say?

I was trying to show you the UTEE I used on this bird- kind of tough to get a good pic of it....
Hope you're having a wonderful day, wherever you are! Thanks SO MUCH for stopping by- I'd love to know what you think!!! :D


  1. Oh I like!!! Thanks for the s. hemisphere shout out- winter storm brewing down here.

  2. Thanks so much for the tip on the eyelet enclosure! Great notebook and stylized design.

  3. So cute! I would say that this is a perfect little thank you for Susan. And thanks for the inspiration - I need to pull out those 55 PTI notepads that I bought and do something with them. ha!

    Messy stings - growing - *chuckle*. I'm so proud of you.

    Pass on best wishes to Susan that she sells LOTS of homes!

  4. Jen this is soooo fun and creative...AWESOME project!!

  5. What a beautiful notebook. I'm sure your neighbor loved it. I'm with you, it's very hard to finish an indoor project with this fab weather!

  6. It would be a perfect notebook if it had an "M" for Michelle!! (hee hee)

  7. This is so cut, Jen! I love all the sewing elements!


I appreciate you taking the time to come by- and your comments make my day! Thank you!!
