Stamp Club Altered Notebook & Pen

Here is the third and last project we did at September Stamp Club.  This is a really easy project and looks so neat when it's finished.  Who doesn't like a matching pen & mini notebook?

  We covered the notebook with Baja Breeze cardstock for the spine and Elegant Soiree DSP for the front & back cover as well as the pen.  To decorate the front (cause you can't leave it naked right?) I showed the ladies how to make a mat for behind the new Decorative Label punch.  I used the tutorial found here on Angela McKay's blog.  Really easy to do but is much easier to watch the quick video than for me to try and explain--she does a great job so check it out!  We blinged out the Decorative Label with some pearls then added the initial which was punched with the 1 1/4" circle punch then mounted on a 1 3/8" circle punched from Baja Breeze.

   This would be a great project for little Christmas gifts if you have the need to give something but don't need to give a great big gift.

Thanks for looking!  Happy Stamping!
