Week #2 12 Weeks of Christmas Tutorials:Notebook Tutorial with Anita


 Good Morning friends!

Today is our 2nd week of Christmas tutorials and Anita has a NOTEBOOK TUTORIAL to share with you:

This week I am sharing a tutorial on altering a notebook. I choose one that is a mini composition notebook that is 3" x 4 1/2".

Here you can see the finished journal.                       This is a close up of Luke 2:14 from Inspired Stamps.

Here is note book before I started. I took a piece of DSP and cut it to size. I then colored it with Distress Inks. The paper already had the embossed snowflakes. The DSP is glued to the notebook using Decoupage glue. I find this helps hold it best. I used a bit of the decoupage on the large snowflakes too.

 One of the amazing things about Inspired Stamps is that they come with this piece of foam. It helps to make a good crisp image. I stamped my image than embossed it. I choose to keep it simple and not color the image.
Here is another notebook using Tags.   I did the same thing as the red one. These would be great gifts for friends and family

Have a blessed week and THANK YOU again for all your support of Inspired Stamps!
