That's just a taste of what can be created with this new die, now here's what the Pocket Notebook looks like - you get all of the pieces you need to make an entire book- the cover, pages, latch and pen loop! The Pocket Notebook measures 6 3/4” x 4 1/2” with a spine that can adjust from of 3/8” to almost 2”! String it with elastic, hemp, ribbon or twine, or even bind it. So many option for this fun die!
I decided to create a Christmas themed Notebook using some of the Kaisercraft Frosted Collection.
I love this die as Eileen has done all the measuring for you, including the inserts! I lined four sheets folded paper up along the line of the book cover, so the signatures are all the same size.
Then using a waxed linen thread I did a basic stitch to hold the pages together.
I find it easier to use household pegs to keep the pages together as I stitch them
After cutting the covers from Matt Board, adhering them together, I cover them with a gorgeous paper with Santa on.I strung all of holes available on the die with elastic, as I needed space for five signatures.
I used lace and some of the coordinating Collectables to decorate the front cover.
And of course I don't need an excuse for a little bling, and just look at the shine on the Golden Rod Molten Dimensions Powder.
I carefully added the powders using the Clear Ink from Eileen's Colorbox Blends2 collection.
Unfortunately as this was an afterthought, when I heated the powders the glue under the paper moved slightly, and there are a few wrinkles (bit like me) but I quite like that, as it makes the Notebook a little shabby.
I finished off by adding a little White Gold Gilding Wax from Cadence.
That's it for my project - now back to the Release Party and that Blog Hop I mentioned at the top of this post.
