Bella & Sunshine notebooks

Ok, I know I'm a baaaaaaad blogger – enough said! Let's just move on & I'll show you some new things I made for last month's open house to celebrate the now not-so-new now catalogue. First up are some covered notebooks, which are so quick & fun to make, but I think look really good.This one was covered with some spotty 'Bella Rose' paper in riding hood red & pink pirouette. It has a co-ordinating belly band made with some pink pirouette & old olive card, more pretty 'Bella Rose' paper & a die Blooms in the centre. The brad in the centre is one of our new build a brads, customised with a punched circle of paper. Love em! You can see it better here:
Now, for a different look, here's a funky one made with paper from the 'Good Morning Sunshine' paper pack. On the belly band, I used more 'Sunshine' paper. Then I punched out a funky flower with the scallop circle punch, & made it into what I call 'faux chipboard' embellishment, by sticking it to about 5 more sandwiched choc chip scallop circles (can't check the number, as it was one of the lucky door prizes).

In case you're interested, the notebooks are the same size as a normal card front. Anyway, I hope you liked the notebooks. I have more open house goodies to show you, so I'll be back tomorrow hopefully.
Inky wishes
