la dee dah



Someone recently commented on a layout I posted in the S'nC gallery (actually Pam I think it was you ;0) that my creativity must keep me up at night. Well, this is one of those that did. I couldn't go to bed until it was finished which was about 3 in the morning but that's what I get for starting a new page at 10 o'clock at night.
When I get the creative spark, I can't stop until that spark lands on some sort of finished creation.


I finally got my little chubs on the Dear Lizzy line and all I can say is Oh so delish! The papers are not only beautifully spring, but so lush to the touch! I couldn't wait to make something pretty throwing scissors and glue in the mix! I tried my hand at the ever popular rolled rosettes and I can see these babies gracing themselves on many more future pages yet to be brought to reality.

But I couldn't stop there....


No way. I had to make something else with the oh so lovely fabric adhesive paper so I made me a little inspiration book. I found this awesome tutorial on how to make your own fabric covered journal and couldn't wait to get started. Since the Dear Lizzy fabric paper comes adhesive backed, I was able to skip the spray adhesive step and just cut to shape.


I did however, machine stitched around the edging for added durability. I'm pretty rough on my notebooks as I like to carry them every where with me. You never know when something inspires out of the middle of nowhere. 
And since I love to give, I will make another one of these inspiration notebooks for a lucky someone. Just leave a comment and I will draw a winner this weekend.

I hope you had a wonderful hump-day! I know I did. It was my birthday today and talk about a wonderful day. Wooo-Wee!!!
A birthday post is forthcoming ;0)
