It's time for a new notebook. I've filled up my last one with everyday stuff from January to June - lists, ideas, appointments, cryptic little sketches, phone numbers that I invariably fail to label, etc. In short, these little notebooks contain my day to day life. I purchase the notebooks from Office Max. They are Cambridge brand by Mead and have yellow ruled paper on one side and gridded paper on the other.
For this cover, I chose the Urban Garden designer paper from the Spring/Summer catalog. I embellished some of the flowers with some selective stamping from the now retired Kindred Spirits stamp set. Several of the flowers are cut outs from one of the papers in this pack. I've found that cutouts do fine on these notebooks as long as they get lots of glue on all the edges. Some Baja Breeze striped ribbon serves as a bookmark. I love these colors and am sad to see them go, but....
TODAY is the 2009/10 Stampin' Up! Catalog launch!!! So we will have many new products to fall in love with including the new In colors (see this post http://lisae-design.blogspot.com/2009/06/in-with-new.html for samples of some of these.)
I have created a link at right for a link to the catalog. It isn't quite ready yet on the Stampin' Up! site but I'll post the link as soon as they have it on-line.
