DINO-MITE Composition Notebook

Hey everyone, so altered things is another one of my favs to do.  With it being back to school time you can usually get a good deal on composition notebooks so I grabbed one with a project in mind.  My grandson is a dinosaur freak….he knows everything there is to know about dinosaurs (he is 9 and can talk about dinosaurs for the entire day lol)

So i took a plain composition notebook and altered it for him to write in.  I started with the notebook, these awesome dinosaur stickers, adhesive sheets, and the tree bark paper.

So first I simply cut the paper to fit the cover of the notebook.  I did cut it slightly bigger so I didn’t have to worry about putting it on the adhesive straight.  Next I placed the adhesive sheet on the cover of the notebook.

I then puller them up by the tab (the adhesive will stay on the album) and placed the pattern paper on the cover.  Next I opened the notebook and cut the extra off with my blade and i used a file just on the corners.

Now it was time to make it his by adding the dinosaur stickers and his name on the book.  I added a little keepsake envelope into the inside for the extra dino stickers I didn’t use so he can place them anywhere in the notebook.I’m sure he will write all kings of things about dinosaurs in this book!

Explore More Mini Album

Hey everyone, Stacy here to share with you a fun mini album I created using the Paper House outdoor papers and of course the fun stickers & clips that go along with it!

So lets start with the cover…I love to use the cut apart sheets as embellies for my albums..and the clip and sticks were such a fun way to dress it up.  I tied a little ribbon on the side.

Ok now we can dive inside….It’s not secret I love mini albums and pockets and flaps so…I created this mini album with some chipboard I had in my stash, i made some smaller pages to alternate between the bigger pages.  We have a couple places for photo mats, journaling inserts and some fun stickers.

Some of the cut a parts I simply punched holes in to make them small additions pages within the album.

Ok so my next page…i’m getting into planners and the journey books, so I took a page out of a jouney book to create a custom mini album page.  I used the stickers from The Great Outdoors planner set, and of course added a clip at the top.

Next another pocket with the slide out photo mat….the crazy thing is I don’t even camp but this line was so fun to work with!

My First Planner Go….I’m HOOKED

I’m excited to share with you my first time ever playing with planner goodies……i’m so hooked!!!!  I’m going to share my month of August with you.

I’m using the fun PaperHouse/ML planner.   The first week I would say was just basic.  I used some washi tape, stickers, and sticky notes.

 Week two I experimented a little more.  I did a little doodling around the outside and adding some stamping in the corners.

I have decided that I like to put washi tape across the center of it to divide my day into morning and afternoon….not sure how others are doing it but that is the way i’m rolling right now (that may change)  I have also started writing positive vibes at the bottom to get me through the week!!

SONY DSC

I got a stash of Paper House goodies and picked out these fun little clips….love that added little embellie to my planner.
