Hi crafty folks! Sorry I haven't been around much but I've not been too well. Luckily I had this challenge covered a little early!
So it's Tuesday which means it's time for another challenge over at Anything Goes Challenge! And well, it's a nice and easy one for you, it's.....Anything Goes!! :0)
I got some inspiration by looking a videos on You Tube and then kinda did my own thing.
So I made these using chipboard which I covered with MME and Echo Park papers. I kinda had a little production line going as I thought it would be easier to create them all with the same design. Firstly I came up with a little "sketch" I was going to use for the cover, this made planning alot easier! The stamps I used were from the Papertrey Ink Take Note set which I hope to use for many more gifts like decorated notebooks etc.
I'd like to enter these into:
Stamp With Fun- anything goes
Allsorts- alter/recycle- I altered chipboard
Here is a closer look at one of them. You can see how I added a paperclip. I thought this added texture and was quite visually pleasing. There is a little paperclip stamp in the Take Note set but I thought a real one would work better. I also added a bit more tactile-ness (!) but adding buttons and twine and tied ribbon around the binding.
Another look at all 3. I rounded the corners of my chipboard using a Zutter corner rounder which is meant to cut all sorts of materials, it easily cut through this chipboard.
Thanks for looking today, hope you liked this project, if you have any questions about how I made them don't hesitate to ask!
Do take a look at the rest of DT's samples as they're gorgeous as always! Don't forget Lynne atThe Craft Den has all sorts of chipboard for altering like I've done here and lots and lots of other altering goodies so do check them out! x
