busy, busy, busy --

it's been awhile since i've posted -- but i have a good excuse!! :)  i've been getting things ready for a craft show coming up in a few weeks, i started a new job, and i've been keeping up on etsy.  busy, busy, busy.

BUT i have a fun project to share with you today -- i've been playing with altered composition books.

i like this one -- i've been really stuck on pink and brown lately.

it's covered with designer paper -- i love the paper on the binding!  it look leather like with that great texture. 

i recently went to a stamp show in rhinebeck, ny -- while i was there i picked up a catalog from the close to my heart company -- the directions to make the flower where in there --- so easy and cute!  here is a close up of it -

it's pretty easy to make -- punch out 9 circles 1 1/4 inches.  fold 8 of them into thirds. glue them all onto the 9th circle.  i added a rhinestone brad and a piece of card stock in the middle.

it adds a nice touch to this composition book!

so -- hopefully the quietness around here will die down!  i've been working on some fall and halloween cards -- and some other projects for the craft show.

stop back soon and check them out!

happy stamping ---

see ya soon!
