MCT – 53rd Edition Release Blog Hop – Altered Mini Notebook


Happy Friday my crafty friends and welcome to My Creative Time! 53rd Edition Release Blog Hop!!!  After an AWESOME inspiration week with the NEW MCT stamps and dies, today is reveal day!!! 😀  If you came from Kim’s Blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened to arrive here, you might want to start back at Emma’s blog, so that you don’t miss anything!

Today I’m showcasing the NEW “Just Because” stamp set with matching dies.  I wanted to show you another way to use your stamps besides making cards.  I altered a mini notebook (the ones you get in the $1.50 bin at Michaels).  I stamped the spine using “Geo Borders” and stamped one of the flowers with Versamark ink to make the background.  I colored one flower with COPIC markers and die-cut it with the matching die.  I die-cut a doily twice using “Bunch of Stitched Doily Dies” once in CS and once in adhesive foam.  I die-cut a small banner using the NEW “Ribbon End Dies” showcased yesterday and heat embossed a sentiment from New “Just Because” on top.


Here is a closer look at the finished notebook.  For dimension I added a second layer of front petals, Wink of Stella to the petals and a strip of glitter card stock.


As you can see it matches the card that I showcased on Tuesday.  (you can click on the pic to zoom it) Don’t you think it is a perfect little present? 😉
