Paisley Flower Notebook



I must have flowers on the brain. I see the Big Paisley stamp and a big ole flower pops to mind. The center of the flower is cut out from the Sunflower stamp with my one inch circle punch (stamped on Whisper White) and then glued with Crystal Effects to a clear button. Stamps are both from Lizzie Anne Designs. The ribbon holding the pen was sent to me by my friend Pam...... that's where it all started... pink and white paisley ribbon. I had to make something that would match that beautiful ribbon. :)

The notebook cover is cool. I've wanted to make one ever since I saw one on my friend Cindy's blog. Then, I forgot that I wanted to make some, but when Leann came to Eugene a few weekends ago, she brought hers... of course it was AWESOME. It's held closed by those cool little magnets from Basic Grey. You can get complete instructions here on Cindy's blog. That girl is BRILLIANT! Thanks for sharing Cindy!!

Here is the view when it's open:
