A cheeky notebook

Hello lovely people,

Wow, my feet have hardly touched the ground for the last few days.  I had a fab bank holiday weekend with family and ate LOADS of cake :-)  My mum made some yummy carrot cake and I made chocolate orange cupcakes...

I have then been so busy making cards that I haven't had time to blog anything.  So, I thought I would just share this little notebook that I made.

The pages are all offcuts and the outer covers are from some brown cardboard packaging so I think I did well on the recycling front!  I used my bind-it-all to punch the holes and add the 3/4" wire binding.  You can just see in the next photo that I put pretty DP on the inside of the covers too.

The image was coloured with ProMarkers (done prior to my switch to Copics), then fussy cut and stuck to the front.  I put a layer of matt Mod Podge all over to keep it from getting scruffy when used.  That's also why there are no embellishments as I wanted to make it practical to use.

Card recipe;
Image: Cheeky Geeky from TGF
DP: Pink Paislee - Portfolio
Letters: cut with Cricut

I would like to enter this card in the Simon Says Stamp challenge which has the theme of 'Anything Goes' this week.

I hope you all had a wonderful time over the bank holiday and saw some of the lovely sunshine that we had here in Gloucestershire :-)

Thanks for visiting,

Kat xx
