Mother's Day Notebooks..
A special order I just finished up for a friend. I love both of these notebooks, just a little biased on the first one!This Marine Corps paper is from a small 6x6 notepad from K&CO. I've had this paper for years, and years, and...you know how it goes! I decided to use 2 sheets, 1 for my main image, and the 2nd I cut a few images out to sew like a quilt. I used quite a few of my PTI stamps on the bottom half...polka dot basics, star prints(BG), text style (BG), in bloom, and trajan alphabet. I stamped the flower from In Bloom with a deep blue Dew Drop ink and clear embossing powder. The leaves are stamped in Versamark and clear embossing powder.Coordinating card!Vintage notebook with my Graphic 45 papers!I decided to follow the same "quilting" look as the Marine notebook. Once the rectangles were stitched, I added vintage brass brads...really gave the notebook a cozy look.May Arts scrunchy ribbon separates the bottom half here. I used a simple monogram on the bottom since it would have been "too tight" of a squeeze for a full name.Simple coordinating card! After I put this card together, I thought it would be neat to make a pocket on the front and include some flower seeds. I didn't add the pocket on this one, but I want to try it out on future cards:).
