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.

When I first received the Woven Strands kit from Club Scrap I immediately thought of our family reunion after seeing the stamps.  The tree and quotes were just screaming "family".  I gathered up my photos, chose the papers that complimented my photos and then found a layout in the Idea Deck that worked with my photos.  Here I chose the 5 of Clubs from Volume V. I left a few elements out and added a few of my own. I really liked the woven circles but they were 12x12, so I just cut them down to meet the 8.5x11 requirement for the directions.  I added one of my favorite quote stamps from Tahiti on the paper strips. Supplies: Woven Strands papers, quilted embellishments, jewels and stamps. Thicker alphabet, Martha Stewart punch, Queen &a…
