2 Sketches 4 You and more new stamps!


I used the sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You for this little mini notebook. Also I used more stamps that are coming out on Sept. 3rd at Pink Persimmon.







Steps for making the notebook:
Make a faux binding by folding a peice of cardstock in half and sewing a piece of 6x6 paper to each end. I then cut 5.5"X6" pieces of white cards stock. To perforate the edges, just take the thread out of your sewing machine and sew a straight line about 5/8" from the edge. Then just glue the pieces of white cardstock together along the edge(the small side of the perforation). Then glue them into the shell of the notebook.

I paper pieced the fairy stamp with the patterned paper that I used for the rest of the notebook. To make the fairy dust, I just used my stickles and glitter glue, and spread it around.

Paper: Daisy Bucket Desings, Playful Petals collection
