pocket notes & stuff

My friend Bevie put out a challenge to us to do something for ourselves. We do so much for others it's time for me! Thanks for the inspiration Bevie!


I decided to make an altered notebook. This package of sparkly denim trim is what inspired me. I got it in the clearance isle at Wal-Mart for $1. Funny what a cheap package of trim will inspire you to do, LOL!I cut a pocket off a pair of old little girl jeans. I thought it would be cute on the front of the notebook, perfect for holding pens, bookmarks and what-not.


I coverd the notebook with Basic Grey, Daisy D's paper and a scrap from an old church hymnal I found at a yard sale. The textured hearts are from Tim Holtz's Grungeboard, Tiny Dots Elements. I smooshed them in my ink pads, after they dried I sprayed them with Pink Taffy & Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist. The sentiment is stamped with SU!'s Rough Edges Alpha. The background paper is stamped with Crafty Secrets Hardware & Mini Memories stamp sets. The crocheted flower is one I did several years ago when I was doing a lot of crocheting. I had probably started something and didn't finish. I think I need to make more, lol! I put a Maya Road pink velvet flower in the center with a vintage clip earring on top of that. I break off the clip with my little jewelry pliers. I made a bookmark to match using my Cuttlebug and heart dies on lightweight chipboard. I glued all the bellies down with E6000.

I put black metal corners and SU!'s Pewter Build a Brads on the book corners. I put Glossy Accents on the little Grungeboard hearts.

I put a little trail of Cowboy Dew Drops on the pocket. I just love those little baubles, they are so cute and the little bottles are cute too!

Well, I put a tiny little dent in my supplies with my me notebook, every little bit helps huh? LOL!

I hope you have a great day, thanks for stopping by!

LOVE THIS!!!! Do you make of those crocheted flowers anymore? They are so expensive to buy, it sure would save you a boatload being able to make your own!

Your notebook is SO COOL, Pam! I love it! Hmmm, I used to crochet those flowers. Maybe I need to pull out the old crochet hook, huh? Thanks for the inspiration!
