Book Worm Notebook

     Here's a fun little notebook that I made using the Mini Scrapbook Series: Tabs stamp set and matching Mini Book Page Die and Tab Die from Papertrey Ink. I cut out LOTS of lined pages and plain card stock in varying colours of blue and bright green to make this notebook. The die sure made it easy to create all of the pages in a uniform way.
     I started with the Bookworm and apple stamps from Imaginisce and then coloured them with Copic markers and some regular markers. I only had a few copic markers when I made this. Next, I cut the two images out and used dimensionals to attach them to the limey green library card that I had downloaded from Heather Nichol's blog. (I have since purchased the stamp - love it!!)
     The library card is layered on top of a piece of card stock that has been stamped with A to Z letter background stamp from Stampin'Up. I used my EK success Stamp Edge border punch to add some interest .  The pencils were stamped using a little single stamp from Clear Dollar Stamps and Take Note is one of the sentiments on PTI Fillable Frames #1. The embellishments are Dots and Donuts from Stamping Bella.

     I decided to create a "spine" on the book by sandwiching an extra piece of green paper between two pieces of card stock on the front and back and leaving a 1/2" showing on the spine" of the note book. I used ribbon ties to hold it all together.
     Here's the first page with Tin types background stamp on the green paper and  a label made with a Disney alphabet stamp set  that I've had for a while (not sure where it's from!!)     I used the Tab die to cut 5 tabs and then stamped them with the matching border stamp and then various labels - ideas; shopping list; to-do-list; doodles and sketches.
