Welcome back to another Challenge Wednesday with Tsunami Rose Designs ("TRD")! Hope you're all having a great week thus far. I'm having such a great time creating projects for the TRD DT, using the "New Beginnings" Printable Journal Kit. This week is another "Anything Goes" challenge. I must admit that this project was totally inspired by one of my best friends, Jenny. She gave me an altered notebook during one of her visits to Honolulu and I just loved it! While lunching with our other best friend Cami the other day, I mentioned some projects I was thinking of making for this challenge. Cami also got an altered notebook from Jenny and she suggested that I use the New Beginnings digital paper and make an altered notebook too. So, I took Cami's advice, and here's what I came up with:
To this ...
And since Cami suggested I make this notebook, she'll be the recipient of it! I hope you like it Cami (you don't have to wish this time)! Heehee! I used one of those $1 kraft notebooks which comes with a pen, covered the front, back, spine and flap with the digital papers from the New Beginnings Printable Journal Kit, distressed the edges of the notebook with Tea Dye Distress Ink, used Glossy Accents on the green leaf and butterfly on the cover, and added some stickles here and there. I also used some pearl flowers and leaves, which I thought went perfectly with the color of the papers. Here is the back of the notebook:
Daisy has designed these papers with such detail and wonderful colors, that you don't need a lot of embellishments to create a beautiful project. I also like that she distresses the papers too! As I said, I distressed the edges with Tea Dye DI, but if you'll look closely at the edges of the papers, Daisy's done the distressing with different shades of lavender and purple. Cool, huh?
Here's what the notebook looks like when you open it up. I put a mini calendar on the inside cover, along with a butterfly ticket and the "Reach High" sentiment, both of which also come in the New Beginnings kit. You'll also notice that I covered the pen with some of the DP, and I have four tab dividers inserted into the notebook.
The dividers were made by adhering the DP to cardstock, punching holes that matched the holes in the notebook paper, cutting slits into each hole, then inserting the dividers using the tip of a pen. I'll be doing a YouTube video later this week to show you what I mean. Click here for the link to my YT channel.
So, what do you think? I'm loving the way this notebook turned out. Also, once Cami has filled up this notebook, she can take the dividers out and use them in another one! Sort of like recycling, yah? Well, that's it for this week's challenge. I hope you're able to play along with us! Please head on over to the TRD blog here, and check out all the wonderful and creative projects from Daisy's DT. While you're there, don't forget to comment! We love reading what you all think of our projects.
Be sure to come back next Wednesday for another fun challenge with Tsunami Rose Designs. Until then, take care!
