It's time to share with you my latest creation for Made With Love. This round, our theme is "Celebrations". And it is just perfect because I'm going to celebrate my birthday soonest!
If you'd let me choose between and expensive bag and a notebook, I'd choose the latter. Honest. My notebook is my best friend. It knows my secrets, my dreams. I write my prayers on it. My disappointments, my happy thoughts! I list down my goals on it. Recipes. Grocery list. I can't live without a bag but I can never ever survive a day without my notebooks!
In a few days, I will be turning 40 and I am quite excited about it. It feels great at this point of my life now, (Thank You God!) So to celebrate this great milestone, I made a special notebook for myself. In here I will record all the happy events of my life... to celebrate life and love, at forty :)
It's actually just an ordinary notebook from a local bookstore, that now looks extra special because of some simple tricks made by Sizzix!
I covered the notebook with papers from Webster's Pages and played around with stencils and texture paste. Once dry, I cut details such as balloons, bicycles and such from the patterned papers and adhered those on the notebook cover.
Then I made these flowers using the Sizzix Camellia die. You can never go wrong with a Sizzix flower die + vellum + glitter. It's a guaranteed no-fail combination!
How do you like this cute camera detail here? It's made using my little scrap cardstocks and the really cute Retro TV & Camera die set.
This notebook is so much fun and easy to make :) All you need is your Sizzix machine and dies, a little bit of supplies and a heart full of happy thoughts and inspiration!
