Happy Friday and happy first day of summer!! It is gorgeous and sunny here in Central Virginia - how about where you are? This week on the Sisters in Stamping blog we are focusing on the gorgeous new designer paper in the Stampin' Up! catalog and I used the Eastern Elegance package for my altered composition notebook above. This paper is beautiful and features the new colors of smoky slate, coastal cabana and the returning crushed curry along with whisper white. I also pulled out my Big Shot and used several framelits plus some punches and pearls to complete my project. I added texture to the basic gray card stock on the spine of the notebook by using water in my Stampin' Spritzer and crinkling it up when damp.
Here is a close-up of the focal image on my notebook... I love the Dress-Up framelits and used them to cut out my smoky slate dressform and dress from the designer paper. I embellished it with a piece of the coastal cabana ruffled stretch trim and some pearls. The crushed curry and whisper white ovals were cut out using the Ovals collection framelits and I added texture to the whisper white cardstock with the Perfect Polka Dots impressions folder. Easy-peasy and oh so pretty!
Here is a close-up of the sentiment piece - I used a stamp from the Feel Goods set with coastal cabana ink and cut it out using the Deco Labels framelits. The flowers were cut using the Boho Blossoms punch and the small scallop circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack and embellshed with pearls. I also added a few tiny pearls to my sentiment. I really love how this notebook turned out and don't think I can part with it... I think I will use it as an inspiration journal.
