A Covered Notebook ::Inspired::

After sharing a picture of the anniversary card I posted yesterday, one of my friends asked me if it was a card or a notebook.  Her question sparked an idea and -subsequently- a Creative Daze!

Using an 80-page journal from Michael's as the base, I pulled out another sheet of the Recollections Black and Tan Damask to cover it.  Some black card stock was used for the binding.  

For the ribbon closure, I used a tag from the Gyspy Wanderings Cricut cartridge cut at 1.25" (Kraft paper) and 1" (damask) and then layered them.  I inked the edges of the book with Marcella black dye ink made by K & Company; I love the fact that the ink dries so quickly and doesn't smudge!

For an impromptu project- I think it came out beautifully- and I think I'm keeping it for myself!! LOL  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you guys next time!
