Welcome to the Pattern Play Blog Hop brought to you by Club Scrap. Each month the talented Club Scrap owner, employees and members present a project, card or layout using the monthly featured collection. The purpose of the blog hop is to demonstrate the beauty of paper and digital crafts.
If you just happened on the blog hop today because you're a regular reader of my blog, and you'd like to view the entire hop, you can start back at Club Scrap. If you're already hopping and linked to me from the talented Kelly's blog, you're in the right spot.
Today each member is pulling inspiration from the Pattern Play collection. This kit features a black/white/gray color palette complemented by a beautiful splash of lime green.
I have two upcoming adventures in my life. I start a Winemaking class this week that'll take me through the summer. Yeah me! I need to start thinking what my second career will be in a few years and you know I'm a planner. My second adventure will be a trip to Ireland and Iceland next April. Iceland has been on my bucket list for awhile and I'm super excited.
Having the OCD personality that I do, I need a notebook for each adventure. However, I have found that I never really fill up an entire notebook in the past. So I took an idea from Karen and cut a composition notebook in half. I love these graph composition notebooks from Retreat 2013 and still have a few handy.
1. Trim a notebook in half with a craft knife.
2. Cover notebook with papers using bookbinding glue.
3. Round corners with a corner chomper.
4. Decorate as desired.
