Dollar Find Friday (Angela- Notebook)

I am so excited to share this week's Dollar Find Friday project with you! Angela did such a wonderful job on this notebook. Isn't it too cool??? It would be a great Holiday gift too ;).

Hi all! Well, my Dollar Find Friday time has rolled around again! Check out the computer notebook I made using Crafty Taglines from There She Goes.



First off I purchased a notebook from Dollarama. I made sure to get one with a spiral binding.


I used small binder clips to hold the papers together in the notebook while I carefully unwound the notebook binding.
The cover for this measures 5x7 so I stamped a Kiwi Kiss piece of cardstock repeatedly in Kiwi ink with the computer stamp. I drew myself some light pencil guidelines to get the computers pretty straight. I tend to go off too high if I don't make myself some lines. I made a second piece for the back cover. Once I had the cover completed, I then used the original cover as a guide to punch holes in the new front and back covers.
I lined them up and then carefully threaded the binding spiral back in.
I stamped the computer in Versamark on Kiwi Kiss paper and embossed in silver. It's matted with Vanilla paper. The sentiment is stamped on Vanilla in Chocolate Chip.
To make the tabs, I used Vanilla paper and stapled them in. A Chocolate Chip marker was used to write the tab
