Cleaning out my stamp area


So in cleaning out my stamp area I found lots of things that I've purchased to alter. Many I've used in classes and now I just have a couple left, not enough to use at a workshop or class. This is an example of a covered notepad. These notepads were purchased on clearance at Target and they were completely plain. They are about 3 x 4 inches so they are the perfect size to have by the phone or throw in your purse. For these three I used a retired simply scrappin kit, rub-on's and some designer series paper. I really love using the simply scrappin kits for altering projects because they have self adhesive elements that are so easy to use! If you decide to make your own than here's a tip, use a glue stick. I'm not the glue stick's biggest fan, but that and a good bone folder and the paper is not going to move. The trick to using a glue stick is to go over the top of the paper with the flat side of the bone folder so that all the glue gets spread around flat. This works for covering chipboard too.
Find an old notebook ( a cheapo spiral notebook will even work) and cover it to make it beautiful!
Okay gals, get stampin'!
