Teddy Notebook



I created this notebook holder over the weekend for one of the Sweet N Sassy Stamps release party challenges. This challenge said to use hardware, so I used a little square blue rhinestone brad in the center of the green present, and three snowflake brads on the rest of the project. I blinged up the snowflakes with some Tiara Glitz stickles - so sparkly!!

I painted the chipboard flourish (Maya Road) with white acrylic paint, and then dabbed more of the Tiara Glitz stickles on top of that. I love the cold wintery feel that emanates from the accessories on here, in contrast to the warm brown teddy bear.

The teddy bear image is from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. It is part of the Rachelle Anne Miller winter collection. It's just so adorable, I absolutely had to buy this when I saw it. I colored this image with Copic markers.

The sentiment comes from Cornish Heritage Farms. You can find it in the Joyeux Noel set. I love this sentiment.

Inside this holder is a 5x8 notepad from Staples. You can find the tutorial by Dawn Lusk in the CHF forums here. Why don't you make your own notebook holder? I'd love to see what you've created!
