Choose to Shine Notebook

I am in love with Kraft-Tex.  I've been making these cute little books for everything lately!  I went through my Projects file to find something close to what I was looking for and came across instructions for the Secret Keeper Project from the Private Eye collection. The project calls for a plastic cover which I replaced with the Kraft-Tex.
 Score nine 4 x6 pages horizontally at 3".
 Pierce a hole 1" from the top and 1" from the bottom along the scored line.
  Using a piercing cradle is a super time saver since you can pierce at least 4 pages at a time.
 Stitch through each page using a chain stitch to link each page together.
If you need a refresher on stitching check out this video.
 Cut the cover out of Kraft-Tex at 4.5 x 10 and round the corners.
Decorate the front cover as desired. 
I added stickles to the stamped image.
Punch hole in center of back cover and insert elastic band.
Club Scrap papers, stamps and elastic band. Stickles.
Now I have a perfect notebook for the depths of my clutter purse!

Don't forget to return tomorrow for the Club Scrap Color Me Happy Blog Hop!


  1. How did you do that dragonfly again? Did you use your silver pen through the kit stencil? Love that.

    1. I just stamped the dragon fly with white ink and heat set. I then colored in the areas with different Stickles.
