Cowgirl Journal

Time to get your creativity flowing for a new challenge over at Cut It Up:  Alter a Notebook!  I have to admit, this challenge was right up my ally since I love school/art supplies!  I have notebooks, notebook themed stamps, clipboards, clipboard themed dies and stamps, pencils, pens, markers, clips, folders,,,, you get the idea!  I have Mead Journal Notebooks for everything.  I take them to classes, right notes, etc.  So, to share this obsession....I mean love....for such things, I made this notebook for my grand-girl to write down her horsey ideas.  

I covered the journal in Kraft Paper.  I used a variety of stamps to stamp the paper and used paper/vinyl cuts to decorate the front.  I painted over the entire front with Gesso to keep everything down and protected since this might go out to the barn and trailer.  Of course, we needed a little bling and a big bow to top it off!  

Material List:

Mead Journal Book
CTMH Paper/Cardstock:  Kraft, Pixie, Cotton Candy
CTMH Stamps:  Love Life, Genuine Country (retired)
Dark Brown Vinyl
Gesso Clear
CTMH Embellishments:  Canvas Ribbon, Bronze Shimmer Trim
Cricut Cartridges:  Old West

This week our challenge is sponsored by as Cute as a Button; they have some adorable embellishments over there!  Please pay them a visit and see what they have to offer!

Ok, so how will you alter your notebook?  This is a great time to dig through those drawers and find an old note book you could turn into a folder or card.  Let your imagination run wild and show us what you make; remember to use a die cut!  Be sure to drop over to Cut It Up and check out what the rest of the team has made and the prize details!  

Thanks for stopping by!  Feel free to peruse other posts/pages, leave me a question/comment, shop, or just hang out for a spell; it's great to have you here!
