Altered Composition Book

I {heart}...the smell of freshly brewed Stumptown coffee in the morning. Trust me, it's worth the trip to Portland to pick up the beans.

I {heart}...diving into a good book on a lazy summer day.

I {heart}...the arrival of the UPS man, who bears my Stampin' Up! goodies.

I made this altered composition book as part of my entry for the Iron Stamper's Competition I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. I used a plain old composition book from the dollar store, and dressed it up by covering it with designer paper, cardstock and embellishments. I cut the paper to fit and sanded the edges slightly. I adhered the Pretty in Pink satin ribbon to the front and extended it inside to make a bookmark, weighing it down with flower diecuts and a filigree brad. This would make a great gift as a journal for a teenager, or even for a new mom to capture precious memories of all the things she {hearts} about her baby.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Paper: Love Sparkles Simply Scrappin' Kit
Ink: So Saffron, Regal Rose (for sponging the flower)
Accessories: Filigree Brad, Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon, Birds and Blooms Sizzlits, Scallop Trip border punch, Scallop Trim corner punch, Sanding Block
