A notebook for the teachers!

Well here we have a note book that I made for Miss 8's teachers this year too! This was the final instalment of their gifts. I didn't drip feed them to the teachers as I have done here to you....lol!

These started out using the Jolly Holiday DSP as I was in the Christmas mood.... but somehow they became non-Christmassy. I seem to have a habit of using non-Christmas DSP for Christmas projects and vice versa. I guess it just goes to show how versatile they are.

When the new Idea Book and Catalogue came out the very first set I just had to have was 'Just Believe' It is soooooooo beautiful! As I am sure you can see by this one stamp used here. Of course there are more in the set... but this is a fine example of how wonderful this set is.

Again I am back to my normal self, colouring my stamps with markers....lol! Also you may be wondering about the scallop oval that is around the Wide Oval punch. That was made by punching out a 1 1/4" circle and then punching a scallop circle around it. I needed two of these to go around each wide oval. I then cut through one side of the scallop circle and then snipped from the inside circle all the way around the inside of the circle. Did that make sense? I then gently stretched out the scallops and adhered them around the wide oval. If this doesn't make sense, please leave a comment and I'll do up a post to show you how with pictures.
