Mini Notebook

With the back to school sales going on right now I couldn't pass up buying several of these mini composition notebooks....only 50 cents at Target. So I decided to try covering one with paper this time. I used the wrinkle free distress method on cardstock with Tim Holtz distress inks and then added some stamps to the front and inside cover. I also made a matching tag to use for a bookmark. Making these little notebooks are addicting:)

All the paper items used on this notebook were glued using the sample of the month at UHU....their original glue stick. If you click here you can still request a free sample of their UHU Stic. It's wonderful! It's colored purple so that you can actually see where you have applied the glue but it dries clear. It glues everything securely even around the edges where I find that some glues just don't cut it.

Thanks for stopping by my nest!

Fabric Mini Book

So inspired by Judy's adorable fabric mini journal, I decided to give this a try. Mind you, I don't sew much...ask my hubby who sews his own buttons. So....I didn't sew anything I just glued everything! I have to give a shout out to the folks at UHU who sent me a sample a few months ago of their Twist and Glue. This stuff is fantastic and this entire piece was glued using the twist and glue! I also added vintage French text pages to the inside front and back covers to finish it nicely. I think I need more practice and will have to make a few more before I get this technique down....who knows I might even break out the sewing machine:) Thanks for stopping by my nest!
