These little notepads I made with some of that "special" paper that we all have. You know the paper that you just love and just cant put it in the cutter and use it ~ this is that paper for me. Danielle had purchased some paper a while back at a sale and she split it with me. The paper is from K&Company called Berry Sweet and it's just adorable.
I took some thin chipboard and covered it with the paper and Mod Podge and let it sit overnight under some heavy books. The next day I used my BIA and put it together and decorated it.
I used ribbon, primas, buttons, chip board accents from American Crafts, felt flowers, jewels, stickers and accent cutouts from my Storybook cartridge.
What I did was let these dry overnight because I covered the front and backs of both the front and back covers. Then the next day I added the word "notes" and used Mod Podge again to seal the stickers. I waited about a half hour to dry well enough then decorated them.
When I made things like this I like to Mod Podge over the top to help seal the letters and just to protect the journal in general. Trust me, nothing can penetrate Mod Podge - I've found that out the hard way.
I hope that you liked my little books ~ Come back tomorrow for something else that's "berry" sweet too!
Have a super great day!
