Be-YOU-tiful Notebook

I have a fun project to share today, featuring the 'Flower Patch' stamp set and coordinating framelits. I really love notebooks - I have at least 2 dozen or more for ideas, quotes, and pretty much anything that inspires me. I carry one with me at all times, as you never know when inspiration will strike?! I designed this notebook as part of my September class. I used the Grid notebooks (2 for $5.95), how's that for a deal?!! I found it quicker to stamp a bunch of flowers first, then diecut them. I actually stamped some of each of the flowers so I could diecut multiple flowers at once!

** Tip ** some of the flowers are difficult to line up to cut with framelits.  To make things simpler I put a dot with a Sharpie marker at the top of my stamp and the part of the framelit that lines up with the stamp so when I stamp I know where the top is and it makes diecutting a whole lot easier, especially for the larger stamps!

To begin, I used the Decorative Masks - either the dots or stripes, but would look great with the stars or hearts too! I used the Metallic Gold and Silver Encore inks and some sponge daubers. I layered my stamped flowers with glue dots and dimensionals, added some Linen Thread and In-colour sequins! The Be You tiful sentiment is one of my favouites from all the sets new this year - I just love it!! The inspiration for this notebook came from a sample in the Annual Catalogue, so many ideas in that book! The new holiday catalogue launches tomorrow, another book with some great ideas and inspiration! Have a super day!
