More Altered Books



Here's another set of altered composition books I made for my youngest granddaughter. This wee one is in pre-school, but I made her a set of her own matching books just like the ones I posted here for her bigger sister. I used another Sarah Kay image and this time added her name to a little banner using SU! hearts-a-flutter framelits with SB labels 18 and some acrylic alphabet blocks by Doodlebug Designs. I added some punched flowers, flourishes and tiny gemstones. The image was matted with SB labels 25 dies, and the checkered border is a sticker I've had since my scrapbooking days. The paper is another great score from Tuesday Morning that my friend Mary Anne shared with me.


This is the matching mini composition book. I used the same dsp as above, and flipped a piece to the solid side for the "binding" and embossed it with a SU! square lattice ef. I added a strip of ribbon, 2 IO die cut "buttons" and a little twine bow and called this one done!

I hope the girls like them and they feel special knowing they have one-of-a-kind fun school books for scribbling and/or fun!

I'm sharing these over on the Snippets Playground #139 as well as the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - "back to school."

That's it for me today, but here's wishing you a fabulous weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Guaranteed to love this....these things mean so much to the little ones. It makes them feel so special. Good job on these, Carol. I need to quit making cards for a bit and do something like this for my munchkins.

There is nothing quite as exciting as having your name on something when you're a kid :) SO cute - and what perfect papers!

How very special for a tiny pre-schooler with all the images I am certain she adores. What a sweet Granma you are to make this just for her and let her have her own notebook just like her older sister. I'm sure she gave you a big hug for it. What memories you've made for her with this treasure. TFS
