Ok ladies, put on your sunglasses! I know that recently I posted a card with really bright colors and mentioned that I wasn't really a bright colors person but sometimes the very bright and bold colors are just what you need. LOL!
I several years ago I started using sketch books, I would jot something down every now and then but over the last two years I have been doing sketches, jotting down little notes and filling the pockets almost daily. I have found that I am getting to the point in life where if I don't write it down I won't remember it. I'm sure some of you can relate. *wink* I have also found that sometimes my sketch books can get lost in the mix of things so I thought if I make it bright and bold then surely I can't miss it!
Here's one of my sketch books that I recently personalized and altered.To personalize my sketch book I used JustRite Stampers, From the Desk of border stamp and added my initials using the Special Occasions Uppercase Font Set.
Here's a picture of the 1 -5/8 Harmony Classic Circle Stamper with the border and fonts.First I stamped the sentiment and then I used the Lg. Standard Circle Nestabilities S4-114 die template to cut and emboss. Before I removed the cardstock from the die template I used a cotton ball with a little of ink to shade the inside of the diecut. I didn't want my little circle diecut to get lost on the page so I used the the Lg. Octagon S4-185, Lg. Scalloped Octagon S4-187 and Lg. Standard Circles S4-114 die templates from Spellbinders to make a mat behind it. Then I used one of the die templates from the Floral Accents S4-199 die template set to accent the top and bottom of the mat. I think the Floral Accents match the flourishes in the background very nicely.
I also added some ribbon on the side, diamond stickles and some bling! Here is a close up of the center.Supplies~
