More Notebooks

Now that everyone (except for Pickle's Mom...sorry...I am getting yours sent with the shirt you let me borrow!) has received their RAKs, I can post them!


I made this notebook for Christy. I actually know her IRL! We met through scrapbooking when I lived in Colorado Springs. She is an awesome girl with a gorgeous family! Since I moved away, she has become a SU demo, so I knew I wanted to make her a notebook that was mainly SU. In addition, I just had to use purple, as she adores that color! I am so glad we have reconnected through this blogging world!



This notebook was made for a dear friend here in Japan. (BTW, I am addicted to making these little notebooks! They are so fun!)



Sorry it has been a week since my last post. I have actually been creating my hind end off, just procrastinating the actual uploading of the proof of my work! ;) This week I have completed 8 scrapbook layouts! I am 2 years behind...I need to get crackin'...plus, it uses up my paper stash!

(If you don't know about my little paper addiction, you can read about it here. Quite frankly, that post will probably make you feel a lot better about yourself, kind of like watching Dr. Phil and thinking "Yeah, my life is not so bad after all...look at that person"...I am "that" person!! I am on a self-prescribed paper buying sabbatical. **sigh** So many pretty papers...and I have to resist...)

I love these notebooks...I don't know if you previously mentioned it or not but where do you get your notebooks from, are they plain chipboard covers?

Grace said...

Wow! You are the queen of notebook altering!!! I am in awe of all these!

Holly said...

Siobhan, these notebooks are so wonderful! How can your friends not just love them!?! I also read your paper hording post - and kept thinking: "Is that ME too?" Probably! Good luck on the no-buying (and I suppose it you REALLY see something you like, perhaps a friend could "gift" you with some...just so you don't go competely without!) :)

These little notebooks are so cute. I need to get crackin and get some notebooks decorated for my girl scouts. I'm going to try to put together a little goodie bag to give them at the end of the year.

Beautiful notebooks! I'm a paper and ribbon junkie! It is so hard to quit buying and actually use what I HAVE! LOL

Gina said...

Love your notebooks. My stash is getting slightly smaller. i can't see a difference but I have been suing it and not buying more, so it must be smaller, right?

Mary said...

And I have to say that I am just floored that you did 8 LAYOUTS!!! WHAT!!!??!!! Get OUT!!! That is awesome GF!!! I need to get of my hind area and get some scrappin done!!!
