Student Note Book and a Winner

Hello friends,
Well in the world of TV everything is subject to change!  I received news that my shows have been postponed to Monday 12 March, sorry to those who have already set their video boxes!
On the plus side..I may have time to make more items to show you.
I would still like to share another notebook project with you today.
This time I used Grand Labels Large and matching Nestaboard.
I was so thrilled to discover that within Tim Holtz - Crowded Attic papers there is a patterned page that fits the die template and Nestaboard perfectly and says Students Note Book!  It was meant to be!
I wanted to keep the colouring quite muted but enjoyed stamping and embossing the swirls and the flowers.
I've even dabbed a bit of alcohol ink on the book rings, somewhat patchy which adds to the vintage look..that's my excuse anyway!
Now, I need to announce a winner of the Papercrafts Magazine and it is......
Here is Bella doing her little day job!
Congratulations Janice, please drop me an email:
and I will post it off to you.  
Please pop by again soon as I really do like this whole giveaway thing! 
Take care today dear friends.

Lovely notebook, am really liking these Nestaboards. What is the best way of attaching the papers to the board though? March 12th will soon be here. Congratulations to Janice. x

Absolutely gorgeous project. So simple but sooooo effective. Have put a note in my diary to reset recording fo 12th March. Can you tell me what glue you use to adhere papers to board.

Firstly, congrats to Janice.
This is a lovely notebook Christine, love the muted colours. Will have to get some nestboard when the budget allows! Anne

Christine this is really fantastic, and how lucky was that to find the paper to fit exactly.

Looking forward to seeing you in March - gives me more chance to save some money after the spellbinders shows yesterday!!

Congratulations Janice

Christine, the notebook is gorgeous, love the muted colours with the touch of bling in the swirls - the colour you used there is really lovely. Sorry to hear about Saturday but now looking forward to 12 March.

Janice said...

Firstly, Thank you all and Bella so much. I look forward to reading this magazine!
Secondly, I just love this notebook Christine, very tempted to have a go myself!

Looking forward to the shows on the 12th March, as you say - it gives you more time

Well done to Janice! Shame about the show being postponed but it gives us something to look forward to for longer! I love the notebook, its fab! xx

loftylass said...

Hi Christine - loving the nestaboards and this notebook is lovely. Sorry for the TV changes and looking forward to your shows, the new date suits me fine because I'm away this weekend!!

Hi Christine,
I am so sorry to hear that you won't be with us on C&C on Saturday, I was so looking forward to that and had planned a quiet day with just crafting and you on TV. Well I will make sure I plan for March 12 now.
I love todays book example. The swirl embossing over the paper is lovely and really sets it off. The flowers are perfect too, not over the top, just enough for a book cover. Can't wait to see what you bring us in March now you have this extra time.
Congrats Janice, enjoy your lovely candy.
Hugs and best wishes Linda
