Altered Composition Notebook - Video#19

The Chocolatiers for were challenged to make an 'All About Me' project.  I decided to make a journal of sorts.  Also, I made a video tutorial altering my composition notebook and embellishing it using images cut using my Cricut!  I hope it helps someone!

I love making these!
They make wonderful gifts for teachers, kids, list makers, ANYONE!

 I decided to curl up the edges of this flower to give it a little more dimension!

Emblem was cut at 5" with Real Dial Size ON!

I just cut out a bunch of flowers, different styles and sizes and layered them up!
All cut from Forever Young Cricut Cartridge
I really like the way it turned out!

Supplies used:

Papers from makingmemories 12 X 12 page kit & Chillin Girls 8 X 8 paper pad

Brads, ribbon, Alpha stickers, and paper from Lush kit by My Mind's Eye

Outer paper was trimmed at 9 X 12 and solid paper on the inside (not shown) was trimmed at 7 X 9.

Cuttlebug folders used:  SU Square Lattice and Spots & Dots
