Sketch DIY Notebook MIM #167

Hi there everyone!  It's been a little while since my last post!  I still have been crafting, just not blogging about it as much and with the end of school, it was just a tad bit crazy!

Anyways, I tried the Make It Monday this week with Erin and the DIY notebooks!  Super cute, as pretty easy like she said! Here is the link to see the process video Erin made.  I made mine a card sketch notebook that I can keep in my purse or laptop bag as I am out and about!  Here is what I made!

I used Scribbled Circles for the Images along with Wet Paint II for the "note this:" sentiment.  
Then I used Simple Alphabet for the word "card sketches".  
Aqua Mist Bitty Dot Patterned Paper was used for the spine and back of the notebook.

and for the inserts.... I used a couple different stamp sets to get these little pages, mostly Clip Tips & Scribbled Circles.... I also used a set by Kanani called Labels & Tabs (StudioL2e)

Everything came together really well I think.  When checking in throughout the week at everyone else's creations, I noticed some gals left extra patterned paper to wrap around to the front of the book.  I liked that idea, but decided to add a small velcro closure to ensure it stayed shut in my purse or bag.

Thanks for visiting!!  Have a blessed day!

Cardstock: Stampers Select White, Kraft, Aqua Mist Bitty Dot Patterned Paper

  2. Kristi, I love your mini notebook. The colors are beautiful! I order that Wet Paint Stamp Set and I'm waiting for it to come. My favorite is the closure. Wonderful idea.
