ALTERED COMPOSITION BOOKS

Hi Everyone - Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! Here are 2 altered composition book that I made for two ladies at work. I always see Andrea going to meetings and thought she would enjoy having a note book for her meeting notes. The other lady would tell me that her journals were always taken by her boys, because they weren't girlie enough, so I made her one that was really girlie. I had so much fun making these. It always warms my heart to make someone smile! :)





The first altered book was made with Create a Critter Cartridge for the cat and cat bed, the meeting notes I did with my Gypsy and used lyrical letters and welded the letters. Don't you just love the Gypsy - it is awesome!!!!! The letters for Andrea's name I used Tim Holtz's grunge board letters. The flowers are from a Martha Stewart punch and the butterfly is a stamp from my stash along with the paper.



The second altered book was made with A Child's Year for the fairy, I used chalk to color in the fairy. I used the Cricut Lite Cartridge Live Simply to make the butterfly. The word journal is from Heritage Cartridge and I used a white gel pen to make the dashes around the letters. The letters for Wendi's name I used Tim Holtz's grunge board letters. The brad is from Oriental Trading. The wings have crystal Stickles on them. The paper is from my stash. Don't you think this is very girlie?

Happy Crafting and thanks for stopping by!
